Two of Us

Married life #10

Yesterday, while I was having dinner with Beks, she asked me this insanely insightful question: How do you and Mr Thick get along in your marriage?

I was completely stumped, I couldn’t answer the question. I mean, we just get along splendidly (we have to, we are married!). Let’s put it this way: sometimes, he picks up after my slack and at other times, I do it for him. We sort of balance each other in the sense that we pick up where the other left off. Like, I feed the cats and he cleans their litter box. I cook and he cleans. I book the tickets and he makes sure we have our passports. That sort of thing. We also laugh a lot AT and WITH each other.

But as do all relationships, ours is not the happily ever after. Marriage is fun, don’t get me wrong, but it’s also a hell lot of WORK. And sometimes, I get so mad at him for being a slob.

Just the other week, I was so pissed off with him for being a rude ass. He had gone off for his Saturday footy game with his mates and I stayed home to chill. But me being me, I couldn’t chill for too long without wanting to do something (ADHD runs in my family) so I put together a lunch for one, chucked the laundry into the wash, took it out and put it out to dry, took the laundry in and folded the clothes, cleaned the kitchen, fed the two bratty furry things living with us AND had my lunch while reading the papers. All within, oh, three hours. Can you tell how proud of me I am? By the time he was done and we were due to meet, I was hot, stinky and in need of a shower. Instead of me going out to meet him, he decided that I was taking too long and drove back to pick me up.

The first words that he said to me as he stepped into the house were, “Wah, so slow.” I wanted to PUNCH him, I swear. While he was having fun with his friends, I was CLEANING OUR HOUSE. Stupid man. Luckily, he later bought me a nice cup of mocha at Shots cafe AND went to Tangs with me to get our Le Creuset 4.5 qt French oven so I forgave him. Cos I am nice like that.

Lots of lurrrvin'

  1. So you arranged to meet with him at a certain time but was unable to meet the deadline because of your bad time manangement so he drove all the way back just to pick you up and you are mad at him? I wish I had a husband like that.

  2. @Jo, correct me if i’m wrong, but i believe you don’t know this blogger personally, right? Of course u wish u had a hubby like that, because u dun deserve one. You get wat you deserve, and my dear friend, Yann, here deserves every bit of her hubby as much as he deserves her.

    Reading thru ppl’s blogs is perfectly fine, but passing judgment of the blogger based on what she post isn’t the wisest thing to do. Posting negative comments about the blogger is the stupidest thing to do, altho i think that’s prob the wisest you could EVER get. It might be due to bad karma accumulated thru nasty comments posted on others’ blogs. Spend the time on some reflection of yourself and you might finally be enlightened on why you dun have such a nice hubby.

    keep dreaming and wishing. have a good day.

  3. Hehe. For me, it’s the other way round. Too often, I’m annoyed that it takes too long for the man to pick me up and I rather hop into a cab to meet him! Faster! That’s the thing about a relationship- there’re too many little things which will annoy the other. So the couple decides what works best for them! Mr Thick is as wise as he is sweet!

  5. I know, I really know how it feels having to suck it up and be the one to clean the goddamn house! And do the laundry and the dishes and clean up after the cats and fold laundry and cook and not want to tear out your hair. I just went through the motion today and it really hurt me (mentally and emotionally), every once in a while, I hate the motion 😦

  6. Sandy – soon! Tangs was (not sure, probably still is?) running a 50% discount on the antique pink ones so it’s really a good deal. I got mine using vouchers so it was practically free. 🙂

    melly – yeah cleaning the house can be a pain in the arse. And the cats! They leave fur everywhere they go!
