this thing is still about things

2,922 days



That’s what the Mr. calculated; I’ll just say 8 years. Today is our 8th anniversary and on one hand, it’s expected and on the other hand, it’s totally unbelievable. I think of all the things the Mr. and I have had to deal with over our relatively short marriage and I compare it to others and wonder if they could have lasted as long as we have. We might fight terribly and handle our stress terribly and take each other for granted terribly, but at the core of it all, we love each other terribly, too. There is a quote that’s attributed to Marilyn Monroe that women just love to throw around:

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

Often this quote is used to allow women to just be a total bitch and say “deal with it”. Trust me, I’m all for that. But it also needs to be turned around for the man, too. If I can’t handle him at his worst, then why do I deserve him at his best?

When we’re bad, we’re really bad. But I’d take 2,922 bad days with the Mr. rather than the alternative. We know what each other is thinking to a creeeeeeepy degree. He knows all of my Simpsons references. He kills bugs, reaches for things off of tall shelves, opens jars and checks out weird noises. He does trash and cat litter. He’s also a great father and after all these years he’s still a sucker for me.

Happy Anniversary.

Happy Anniversary to me!!


Today marks the 4th anniversary of my photo blog. Four years. 1461 days.


I was totally unprepared. There are no balloons, no cake, no punch & pie. Though, I did buy some nail polish today before I remembered it was my anniversary, so there’s that. Let’s celebrate!

So many!

My first picture blog post centered around food, which is not a surprise to anyone who knows me. Food is my most blogged about thing, at 72 entries. Knitting comes in a distant second with 59 entries. Zombies trail with only 6 entries which is actually pretty surprising.

So now on to the schwag! The trend is to have a contest of some sort and give away a prize of some sort on blog anniversaries (blogiversary, if you will, but I hate that word). Easiest contest ever: leave a comment on this entry. Be sure to sign into LJ (Molly) or leave some identifier so I know it’s you. I know, try not to screw it up. I’ll use a random number generator to pick the winner. Prize will include a gift card to Starbucks and whatever random thing I can find in my house. Contest open until Monday 2/22/10 at midnight because I’m out of town this weekend.

I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for FOUR YEARS. Yay me!

Happy Adversaries


October 25 marked the 5th year of being marred, er, I mean, married. I would have posted a picture of the cake which said “Happy Adversaries: Five Long Years” but instead, I will show you how we party, anniversary style:

What, no tax?

Nothing says committment like five years, a one-quarter sheet cake, and almost 4K worth of appliances from Lowe’s.
