I can’t think of anything that drives me absolutely crazy at the moment.
Age and experience seem to temper craziness.
Of course there are a whole host of things that drive me up the wall now and then…like
dishes in the sink that could just as easily find their way into the dishwasher…pronto!
being told “I can’t find it”…when it’s right in front of (ahem) his nose
not removing (ahem) his dark-colored work socks before walking around in a house layered in pet hair…and then jumping into bed with said socks still intact
when papers, papers, and more papers lay on the home office floor…for days and sometimes weeks
putting the kettle on to boil water for tea…and then leaving to walk the dog
But then when I think of the things that make me love (ahem) him…like
when he says…”because you’re my precious”
when he calls to ask if he can stop to get anything on his way home from work…every day, rain or shine
when he tells me to stay in bed, rather than get up to fix him breakfast…at 5:30 a.m.
when he lets me sleep in on the weekend…as long as I like
when the dog begs him to walk her…and he does
Forty three years married to the same guy…through sunny skies and turbulent storms…through job moves and house sales/purchases…through ballerina aspirations and dreams come true…through youthful, glowing selves and deteriorating has-beens.
When I survey all that our lives have been together from a perspective of happiness, what “drives me up the wall”…
…doesn’t amount to a hill of beans…

This is what its all about, girlfriend. Pure and simple. Its what makes all the small stuff smaller stuff. You’ve made my evening. Now Im gonna kiss my sleeping hubby of 32 years…
Awww, I love that. I’m blowing a kiss to both of you…along with the usual haul of hugs. 🙂
That is what the world is all about, girlfriend. Love. Pure and
Loving and liking…the two big “L’s.” Peace among men…and women…could last if built upon…loving and liking.
You are just a really nice person. I can think of a lot but I shall only mention one thing today. People who drive way too fast through parking lots and honk their horn at me as I am backing slowly out of a space.
Remember I told you once that we’re…two peas in a pod. I have those days as well. I just try to “keep a lid” on my stress, however. Not good for my fibromyalgia…and everything else that ails this old woman. 😆
🙂 with hugs…always hugs…

Hugmamma, it sounds like we are married to the same guy and for just as long too, I don’t know where they came from…but you got to love them!
Gotta love ’em, Marcia. And lucky we are to have them. Hope your day is sunnier than mine here in the Seattle area. Actually, I just looked out the window and glory halleluiah! The sun’s here! God bless, girlfriend! 😆
You just made me laugh! Yes, the sun shines most days in SW Florida, no exceptions this morning! LOL
Thankfully, the sun is shining here in the Pacific Northwest today. Makes me want to sing while doing my housework. Can you hear me all the way over there in SW Florida? 😆
