I am not going to apologize for my post yesterday. I don't regret it. While a tad of the over-dramatic side, I meant every bit of it. Yesterday. It's been called naked blogging, not because I was nekkid, but because it was real, raw, emotional and a bit embarrassing. I've gone back and forth on just taking it down and decided against it. You guys get the real me here. May not be pretty, may not be entertaining, but it's me. Thank you to all of you for your sweet comments, it meant the world to me.
Today is a different day. A better day. Filled with sunshine and unicorns. Ok, maybe not, but it's a heck of a lot better than yesterday. I knew I needed to post something today, just so you all know that I'm not taking down this site. So, I looked around and found a meme that I decided to do. The couples meme, is I think what it's called. I stole it from Mothergoosemoouse who I believe stole it from Dooce.
THE COUPLES MEME:
What are your middle names?
Mine is Ann, or Anne, depending which of my parents you ask. Never let your husband fill out a birth certificate, when he can't spell a simple name. Was supposed to be Anne, after my great-grandma. Is Ann, because my dad can't spell. Funnily, he has since that day, spelled it Anne. Logan's (who remember isn't Logan really) is Owen.
How long have you been together?
We met in September 1994. Married, March 1999.
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Like three hours. Seriously.
Who asked whom out?
I asked him out. In fact, I asked him if he'd like to ditch the last half of our first day of Freshman year and go surfing.
How old are each of you?
We are both 29. I turned 29 on Monday and he'll be 30 in September. I tease him all the time for being so much older than me.
Whose siblings do you see the most?
His brother I guess, but only because he has a love of skiing. My brothers live in San Francisco. His brother and sister both live in Los Angeles.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Remembering to make time for us. Remembering that everything is temporary, that he won't be working long hours forever, that I won't always be sitting around just waiting for someone to talk too.
Did you go to the same school?
Yes. We are big ole nerds like that.
Are you from the same home town?
No. I was born in Los Angeles, him Denver.
Who is smarter?
We are smart in different ways, if that makes sense.
Who is the most sensitive?
Depends on the day. We are both capable of hurting each others feelings without meaning too. On the cry at movies type of sensitive, um me.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Go out to eat as a couple? Are you freaking kidding me? I have no clue, because we love to try new restaurants. Plus, hai, we are never alone. Three kids, remember? Our stand-by when we can't decide, or agree, is California Pizza Kitchen.
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Italy. We went for a week after we got married.
Who has the craziest exes?
Neither. We were High School sweethearts. Although if you ask him about me and Nathan and a game of truth or dare under a trampoline, he wants to do bodily harm.
Who has the worst temper?
Me, hands down. I am the screamer, the arguer, the coffee mug thrower. But he has his moments.
Who does the cooking?
Me mostly, although we eat out a lot. He's a better cook than I am. But his mom is a chef, so he learned how to cook at a very young age.
Who is the neat-freak?
Morgan? Neither one of us are neat freaks. The only neat freak in this house is seven years old. I hope it lasts, when she is a teen. She loves to clean and do dishes. However, she hates doing laundry, folding laundy, putting laundry away...
Who is more stubborn?
I'm a Taurus. Enough said.
Who hogs the bed?
Logan does, completely. But he's freaking 6'4. I constantly wake up and move his limbs off of me at night.
Who wakes up earlier?
He does, at five am. Have I mentioned the insane amount of hours he has been working lately?
Where was your first date?I have no freaking idea. Venice Beach Boardwalk probably. Dude we were 14, we considered it all one big date.
Who is more jealous?
Neither one of us has ever been a jealous person.
How long did it take to get serious?
Oh hai, um a day? Ok, not like that. Dirty minded people. But the, he told me after a day, that he knew we'd get married one day.
Who eats more?
He does. Needs a third leg probably. Or has one hidden that I am not seeing.
Who does the laundry?
Me. If I waited for him to do it, I'd walk around nekkid.
Who’s better with the computer?
Me. He's kind of computer illiterate.
Who drives when you are together?
He does. And I gripe at him the whole way.
