Yesterday was our one year anniversary. I was going to write a post about it, but I guess I got busy with other things. We took a weekend away which was nice, but by the time we got back, there were a lot of things to do! Laundry, work, and finding a nice “romantic anniversary dinner” recipe that would be easy enough to pull off. Apparently there are lists of these things on the Internet, you know? So I tried to make steak for the first time by myself. Well it wasn’t exactly stellar. I cooked it longer than I intended to and put too much salt. But it was okay. I think Hubby was touched, which is what counts. Today I’m trying another one on that Internet list. It’s a baked chicken with tomatoes and garlic and kale, and it was pretty easy, so far. We’ll see how it turns out!
I’m kind of pooped now, after two part-time jobs during the day and feeling the kale bits on the kitchen floor with my feet while prepping. Yes, something about that tires me out. My head is aching, but the chicken is in the oven. Phew.
So seriously, what am I supposed to write? Oh boy, what is a girl to do! Marriage is a strange and funny thing, and there are some things that just have to be kept between the two peas. That’s the hard thing about it. On the one hand, it’s my marriage right, so I should be able to talk about it? But on the other hand, we’re two and yet one. It’s all intertwined and yet not. That’s the funny thing about marriage.
I seriously have arm cramps from whatever I did today (blowing bubbles for kids? throwing a bouncy ball? I have no idea..) so I will continue this line of thought later.
I’ll leave you with a quote I found that resonates with me.
A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short. – Andre Marois
