I’m the first to admit that I’m not the easiest person to live with. I’m pretty strong willed and opinionated. I go off in a million directions….a million times a day. One day I decide to simplify and give almost everything away….and the next day I’m calling Mr. LBB to pick up random “treasure” I found on the side of the road. I’ll take over the guest bedroom with my “yard sale” pile rising to the ceiling….then an eBay box will arrive that same day with 5,000 buttons. I cook the same thing almost every night regardless of requests. I’ll decide we watch too much TV one week and the next I’ll watch 23 movies. Our master bed is covered in 14 books at any given time…..along with a few goldfish, G-2 gel pens, clean laundry etc….it’s amazing that hubby can find room to sleep in all of that. I sabotage the Netflix queue and fill it with random documentaries and subtitled films. I don’t think I could live with me….but somehow Mr. LBB puts up with all of that.
Recently he said: Do you think you could make sure to turn off the shower light in the morning? It usually stays on all day. So I know that really bothers him. And I go to extreme efforts to make sure I turn that light off…..OCD checking a few times a day. Because….wow….that’s easy.
No one has a perfect marriage…and we all have annoying quirks and habits that probably drive our other half crazy. I guess the best we can do is to make up for those in other ways, right?
Some of you had asked for the printable version of this image. It prints onto 8.5×11 paper but will fit into an 8×10 frame (the website footer isn’t visible when framed). Enjoy! (click here to download if you have trouble downloading it below)
Speaking of printables Stephanie Corfee illustrated this beautiful 10 Commandments printable. It’s now available in the shop. Download, print, display. I asked her a while back if she could come up with an illustrated piece of art that I could hang in my home after having that discussion with my pastor on the 10 commandments. Stephanie always come through with something amazing!
