Now this one wasn’t too hard to practice. Even though we are a young couple with only a few years under our belt, I’ve learned to accept some of the big parts of my husband that I know won’t change within my lifetime and even see these quirks as a great addition to our marriage and family.
Kristen asks us to list a few of these “quirks” as a practice, and promises that the tables will be turned on us later in the challenge. So, here a bit of Hubby’s list:
-He’s bit of a slob. He has a habit of throwing his clothes right on the floor, even if I just washed them. This creates a mound of half dirty/half clean items that he has to rummage through every time he needs an outfit for the day. So sometimes he smells like purex, and sometimes he smells like dirt. I’ve learned to like his smell either way.
-He’s the uber-procrastinator. I thought I was bad, but he’s totally got me beat. He had 6 months to finish his last album, but waited until 2 days before it was due to actually do it. THE WHOLE ALBUM. I love to make plans for things, and I may plan it a week or two before they actual event, but it is planned before the due date. I’ve learned that when we do it his way, things tend to turn out fantastic as well. Like the album, the crunch time brings the best out of him.
– He’s the spokesperson for Corny. Whether it’s a corny joke, corny display of affection, or something completely goofy and embarassing that he shouldn’t do in public, he does it. He sings in public. Loud. At the supermarket, Best Buy, or on a quiet train. It makes me want to hide in a cocoon but also makes me laugh out the side of my mouth.
I really liked this assignment because, like the last challenge, it made me see that the little things are something to laugh about and make light-hearted, not create stress over.
