Thursday Thirteen #14: Anniversary Edition

Friday, March 7th is my 10th wedding anniversary.
Here is a list of 13 things I like about being married.

  • Having a built-in date for functions.
  • Having someone to kill the bugs.
  • Having someone to mow the lawn.
  • Having someone to sleep with.
    • I tell my husband all the time this is why I stay married to him. I love having another person in my bed. Unfortunately, this one snores really, really loud...
  • Designated driver!
  • Someone to cook.
    • I am not a cook. Fortunately, my husband is!
  • Someone to set the clock on the electronics.
  • Someone to keep me grounded.
    • I am a spaz and a drama queen. I worry like crazy about stupid things. My husband is very easy going and keeps me sane.
  • Someone to deal with the stuff I don't want to.
    • Like contractors and repairmen; I hate calling these kinds of people and having to talk to them.
  • Someone to laugh at my blog, even when it isn't funny.
  • A shoulder to lean into and cry on.
  • A hand to hold during good and bad times.
  • Someone who loved me in a wedding dress and still loves me in my mismatched, threadbare pajamas, with morning breath and Medusa hair.
Of course, the silly ones are meant to be silly but the truth is I am blessed with a wonderful partner. Truly blessed.

I tell my husband I'm married to him because he kills bugs and opens jars (and mows the lawn).

I love being married too.

Great list!

I hear medusa hair is going to be totally in this year... Being married is great, even from a husband's perspective.

So, are you going to do 13 things you don't like about marriage next week? Just kidding. Wonderful reasons & I agree with quite a few. Congrats on 10. BTW 10 means a bigger diamond. You can tell him I said that.

They all seem like excellent reasons!
Hugs and blessings,
