Happy Thursday everyone! Thursday means it is time to link up with Amanda from Running With Spoons to share some randomness…
Ever since Peat had surgery in August to remove a benign lump on his rear left leg he has been afraid of going up and down the stairs. Neil and I were pretty sure that we’d have to carry him up and down the stairs from here on out. Peat is making progress though! He’s got his confidence back going up the stairs now. Yesterday he went upstairs on his own because he wanted to, not because we were coaching him or cheering him on. What you can’t see in the picture above is how much his tail is wagging. He certainly is proud of himself!
I read two interesting articles this week. First up, 12 Things No Woman Should Do In Front of Her Husband. Soooo…it is an interesting list and it claims that doing any one of these twelve things will take the romance out of a marriage. I think it is silly to suppose that you always have to be “on” in front of your husband. Isn’t that outdated thinking and not conducive to a healthy marriage? How are you supposed to (and why should you) hide being sick? I’ve had the misfortune of getting sick on vacation and when you are in a hotel room together you can’t exactly hide it.
Also, what is wrong with flossing your teeth? Neil is a much better flosser than I am, so when I see him floss it reminds me I need to as well. The one point I do agree with is having a closed bathroom door policy though.
The second interesting article I read was 6 Things You Shouldn’t Do If You’re Ready to Talk About Marriage. I whole heartedly agree with this list. Marriage is a partnership and you shouldn’t be afraid to talk about it as a couple. When Neil and I dated the first time any talk about marriage or commitment scared him. When we got back together we talked openly about marriage and why it was important to us.
And that is the extent of my random babbles for today, but here are questions for you:
- Is there a certain behavior that you think would take the romance out of a marriage?
- Do you have a favourite lunch bowl recipe to share?
