Last night I was on the phone with my dear friend Melissa. I really like Melissa, like, a lot. Do you ever meet someone you just think is way cool and know that you must become their stalker and establish a friendship? That's Melip (or "My Lissa," as Livi calls her)... she's just too cool for school. I feel my stock in the ward has risen about twenty points by mere association. So thank you, Melissa. Anyhow, we were on the phone because I had a few questions and comments and plans for an "ugly childhood picture" contest. She brought up my swear-word story from yesterday and wanted more details. Since it's Melissa, and she already knows lots of bad things about me, I was happy to oblige. After listening to the gory details -- and the Double B was in the room and was shocked to hear them -- she just laughed and said "Don't worry, Marie, you're just acting out." Which I thought was the single most funny thing I have heard in 2010! Ha! I'm just acting out!!! It's probably my favorite scenario for the many crazy things I do -- I'm just acting out, ya'all. Please forgive me. I'm just acting out.Thank you, Melip -- for being funny, and giving me my new Motto.
Have I ever mentioned I am married to a giant among men? Honestly, it's ridiculous. But I'm not willing to trade, so I shall deal with the ridiculous. We spent the afternoon together bettering our family, and then we came home and he made dinner. Homemade french fries and... dare I say it... deep-fried mushrooms just for me. It was pretty romantic. My parents gave us a deep fryer for Christmas, and this was it's maiden voyage. It worked like a champ. In fact, I will go so far as to say that now all of the Double B's dreams have come true. My dreams came true a long time ago, so the deep fryer is like the cherry on top for me.
I don't think there is anybody else that could stand being married to me. Seriously. Though sometimes fun, I am pretty much an affliction. But the Double B does it... he deals with my acting out like a champ. And he makes me feel loved. I think I will have to do something nice for him, stat.
I have things that must be done. For instance, put peed on bed-sheets in the washing machine. Re-load the dishwasher and finish the kitchen. Undo the horrific damage done to my bedroom by my offspring yesterday. Order pictures at Costco.com.
