A late but very happy anniversary my friendToday marks twenty one years me and my wife been married. We're both working today. Saturday we need to set up a new bed. Not exactly sure how we'll find time, or gumption for anything intimate, romantic.
Know what I'd like to do but that isn't really tenable. Might be nice to take a week off, and visit the national park where we went for our honeymoon. Cabin rental alone is a fortune, tack on some meals and we'd owe them our supposed grandchildren.
Besides there's no time to "get away" like that. We're pushing so we can get our place. Think she finally understands we cannot keep paying for her family's living. Helping out is okay but there comes a point when you cannot do it any more. We got lives to live too.
Then consider they tossed a perfectly good refrigerator that cost over $2,000 out. The only thing wrong with it, it needed cleaned. So instead of doing that toss it and buy one costing $400 more. Yes, the "old" one wasn't working for needing cleaned. *smh & sighing*
Also my sister in law, her husband will do the same regarding vehicles. They'll run them into the ground with no upkeep, no thought of it. Then, "daddy buy me a new one". Guess who bails out "daddy". Gee, no, really?
Meanwhile I'm play acting the "grumbling" husband for my wife to get her oil changed. She knows it needs done. She's just not had time to get it in and done. She will though and soon, I know she keeps her vehicles up. Her pawpaw would kick her ass if not.
She asked me when she was supposed to have had time. I jokingly told her, "well, tell one of your six men you're running you need an oil change so they can f**k off for a day." She laughed and told me to f**k off. *grin* The oil still went unchanged but we.got a bit of humor from it.
When we do get our place, I'll laugh when her sister has to quit her job. They've not thought once about getting her a car. We'll be elsewhere and it may not always suit for my wife to come here to get her. Oh well, not our monkey but ... *sighs* No, you really can't make this shit up.
So yay, happy anniversary to us.
