I was tagged! The meme of US...

Thanks to Melisa of Suburban Scrawl I have been tagged ... for information about "The Story of Us"....wait, wasn't that a movie? With beautiful people? I can't remember for sure ... now I have to go research this...

Sorry about that. I'm very easily distracted.

Ok on with the good stuff...

How long have you been together?

We met on Valentine's day 1992...officially together by Memorial Day 1992. Oh my gosh almost 16 years.
How long did you date?

Well we lived on opposite sides of the country, so we did the long distance thing for quite a while...huge phone bills and lots of plane tickets. A year and a half.
How old is he?

He is 56, I am 49. Our birthdays are in September so both our odometers wll turn over then.

Who said "I love you" first?

Me, of course. He's an engineer with an engineer's mind. Romance is difficult for him.

Who is taller?

He is...he's 6'1" and I'm 5'8". You better not ask who's wider...

Who is smarter?

Oooh. He is very smart, especially in mathematics, quantum physics, yada yada, but I'm a Wise Guy, ha! I would say we balance each other out...with the scale leaning a little heavier on his side.

Who does the laundry?

Mostly me. I actually love laundry, the smell of fabric softener, folding warm towels. What I DON'T love is having my washer & dryer in the cellar of this old house. Which is why I am in the process of hiring someone to come build a laundry center UPSTAIRS.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?

Definitely me.

Who pays the bills?

He earns it (most of it) and I pay the bills. Although I have set so much up automatically now, I should say the computer pays the bills.

Who mows the lawn?

He does.

Who cooks dinner?

We don't really DO dinner in our house. Hubs is a work-aholic and is never home for dinner. I cook a "dinner" in the morning and pack it for his lunch. If that makes sense.

Who is more stubborn?

Him for sure. It took me a couple of years after getting together but I definitely learned to be more flexible than I ever was before, in order to get along. Plus, I ignore him a lot. Problem solved.

Who kissed who first?

He kissed me first.

Who asked who out?

After a lot of shameless flirting on my part he finally got the idea to pursue me. I believe he thinks it was his idea. Hah!

Who proposed?

He did.

Who is more sensitive?

Hmm. I am more EMOTIONAL...and probably more sensitive too. Although he surprises me with his sensitivity sometimes.

Now I get to tag some folks! I am going to tag Cathy at Noble Pig, Queen Mommy at From Talbots to Target, Deep Fried Apple Pies, and Simply Nutmeg.

Let's hear it, girls!

Oh, that was a lovely post. Thank you for sharing.
I'm married to an engineer too - even though my mother, my grandmother and my aunt, who all married engineers, told me "Ak! Are you crazy! Never marry an engineer."
See how well I listen?

Sue said...

Thanks for sharing Kathy! Melisa tagged me for this one too. Nothing like your first time right?
I'm a little jealous you are designing a laundry center. Not just a room, but a center! You can put a chair in there and bask in the smell of Snuggles and Tide!

Melisa said...

Love it!
I'm with Sue: a Laundry Center sounds impressive (and definitely needs capitalization). :)

Queen Mommy said...

I did it! I did it! Finally. Thanks for tagging me!!

Not to sound too stupid, but what is "tagging"?

This was so sweet and funny/entertaining at the same time. Loved it. Might have to do this meme one day.
