A list of random facts about us, as a couple, in honor of Valentine's Day.
**We hate buying cars. We once bought a used van (2 years old) that ran for only 7 out of the 30 days we owned it. It shall never be forgotten. Neither will the dealership.
**We have purchased 2 homes thus far. Both times we feared we had made a horrible mistake. Somehow we survived. Plus, we may have gained a little wisdom. Check back with us when we purchase our next house in 2080.
**Neither one of us likes to kill spiders/bugs. We both do it when we have to. Nurse Boy has to do it whenever he is around. He almost never kills the insect on the first try and he can never find it once he "thinks" it is dead. This includes spiders crawling on the ceiling directly over our bed. There have been several arguments over spiders. Especially the ones over our bed. I am totally serious.
**We are both crazy about our kids. We honestly believe they couldn't be more beautiful on the inside or the outside. If you don't agree, we don't like you. It is that simple! ;0)
**We both hate to clean the kitchen and do the laundry~~two jobs that have to be done ALL THE TIME at our house. Thankfully, we help each other out a lot in these two areas.
**Neither one of us likes to handle the finances. Don't get me wrong, we are BLESSED not to be in credit card debt. (Mortgage, well, that's another story.) We aren't careless, just not interested in handling all of the little details that can go along with running a household and a family. Usually there is one person who enjoys budgeting, crunching numbers, and analyzing their 401K. All we like to crunch around here are carrots. It is the sad, sorry truth. The upside? We never fight about finances. I honestly can't think of one fight about finances. Spiders, on the other hand...
**Peanut butter is a staple in our home. If you don't like it...leave.
**Our dream car is a brand new Town-N-Country with leather seats and everything on it. We will never have this dream car. As practical as that sounds, it still isn't practical enough for our reality. We just can't bring ourselves to buy a NEW car.
**We complete one another. We compliment each other's strengths and weaknesses. We are both better people because of our marriage and our relationship.
**We spend endless hours every month talking about each one of our children. We discuss any needs, wants, achievements, goals, problems, or concerns. We are always reflecting as parents. It is the toughest job we have. Just when we think we have something figured out, we discover we have NO IDEA what we are doing.
**We have a passion for marriage ministry. We feel that God has plans to use us in this area, but we don't know how or when. If it is licking stamps for Gary Smalley's ministry, we will do it. We want to be a vessel and are excited to see what is in store.**We really enjoy this blog together. We have always cracked each other up and enjoyed playing off of each other's strengths. We also enjoy the community of bloggers that we cross paths with each day. Thank you for stopping by.
