Crunchy gooey goodness...

Not sure why that is the title I've chosen. Maybe it will make sense to me later....

My dad bought me a drill for my anniversary. And it makes perfect sense that for my 9th wedding anniversary he bought ME a drill. Because after nine years I've realized that the person I have married is never going to become a handy man. He just isn't made to be one. And I need handy man things done around my house. So I will become the handy man of my house. I will drill things and screw things and assemble things and get things done. Isn't that how marriages last? You realize what things can change and what things can't....and you adjust yourself accordingly. I've always been the one to put things together, to read the map, to remember where the car is parked. I am the visual one of the relationship....I am the one who can see how windows need to be taken out and put back in...how the shower door needs to be hung...how to fit furniture through doorways. So I spent much of this holiday weekend hanging blinds, curtains, pictures, and shelves. I felt very "I am woman, hear me roar". Now I'm ready to start tackling the plastering that needs to be done in my bathroom. Diydiva, I'll be coming to you with questions....

I haven't exercised this week. Excuses, but none valid. Will get back on track. I'm up a pound this week. Ugh.

Last night was our MOPS Steering In and Out dinner. I am officially no longer the MOPS coordinator of our group. And the new one is going to do a FANTASTIC job. She is so much more organized and prepared than I was. I'm excited to see how the new year goes.

Hubby is starting meds today. Hopefully something to balance out his moods a bit better. Cross your fingers, say your prayers.

I'm caught up in dance rehearsal hell. Six days out of 8 I am in a dark theatre, watching kids "practice" their dances. I can't wait for the stupid recital to be done on Sunday. Ugh.

I'm thinking about just having a staycation this year. No Myrtle Beach. Which means no beach, but also no money swooshing down the tank of the car, no 14 hours of car time with two kids, no dealing with the in-laws. Might actually be a good trade-off. And PA has fun things to do, right here at home.

I'm having to come to the realization that I can't change things about my husband as well. I don't know why I thought I could. Good luck to you on letting it go and becoming the handyman in the house!

Think of having a Myrtle Beach Weddings vow renewal.

Help around the house is good and that trip to Myrtle Beach could have been fun in Florida.
