I hope you're all enjoying your weekends. It's almost Sunday here in Californian so that means it's time for a little Sunday school. Please do me a favor and share your life lessons in the comments below, or even better, link up with Mariah, Miriam and I. So what did life have to teach me this week? Let's get right to it.
I'm a weekend blogger. I write all my posts, read all of your posts and respond to e-mails, on the weekends. You probably already know that though because instead of getting 1 comment from me here or there, you get like 3 at once :). Blogging didn't start out that way, but I realized this week that it's been like that for awhile now. My darn jobs getting in the way of my hobby!
Holidays and occasions aren't the time to speak to the people you don't speak to. You might not know this, but I don't communicate with my parents. Well intentioned people who know this to be the case are always asking me if I'll see them when the holidays roll around. This weekend, "so are you going to see your dad"? Um no, if and when I decide that our relationship is something I want to pursue it won't be on some holiday or occasion because it's expected. It will be because I actually want to connect with them.
Marriage is all about compromise, but we all know that already don't we? That doesn't stop us from wanting to get our way. Dar and I have these power struggles from time to time. When we're buying a house (I want a small condo, he wants a house with land. When we decide to move to a new state (I want to move to CA, he wants to move to NJ). Most recently were going back and forth trying to decide on the breed of our new kitten (he wants a Bengal, I want a Persian). We get into these heated debates and I have to constantly remind myself that neither of us is going to agree to make a big life decision unless we're both on board. So we end up with a house in California with a Savannah cat. We'll eventually get there though compromise.
Speaking of marriage and relationships in general, do you know what your love language is? I didn't until recently. D and I both took this quiz and found it to be thought provoking. Knowing the way your partner perseveres love is pretty cool.
Making macaroni and cheese without butter is a bad idea. Enough said.
