At the start of a new year people are often reviewing the previous year and making new resolutions for the next year. This blog is mostly not that deep, and is more of an outlet for little superficial ideas that makes our life fun. But I read less superficial blogs too, and I loved the way Wine and Cheese (doodles) encouraged in her Ode to Joy us all, me, to think of my joy: To be able to enjoy the life here and now, I think I need to give credit to my husband. He is awesome.
Having said that, we had our 7th wedding anniversary on Monday. We both forgot it.
I think we can now agree on neither one of us being overly romantic… But at least we stick to our sofa dates, occasionally we even get out of the house on dates, mostly then we opt for going on long walks and we talk. So we may not be super inventive with our dates but he is dear, and a lot of fun. Because of that, I feel I am a very fortunate.
In addition to my husband, my dear kids often make me laugh. They get my mind off work and sad things happening around me. Is there really a better way to be reminded about living here and now and having a laugh than listening to children?
- Just the other day my 4 yo asked her 3 yo little brother if he knows what the meat said before dad put it in the oven. “Baa” was the answer. It also made my day when one (or both?) of the little helpers had repacked my handbag and replaced my wallet with 6 pairs of dirty socks. Even the cashier had a good laugh about that one… also, did you know, that when you are almost 3, there is a song coming out of your mouth when you squeeze your own penis. Or so I am told… (please find more real life comments made by my little darlings).
So, at the start of this year, all the small crafts, events, activities, travels etc would not be fun at all, unless I’d be mostly doing them with my family. They are my joy. What is yours?
