This weekend Prince Charming didn’t have to work. It’s kind of rare for him to have a Saturday off so we took full advantage of it.
Grocery shopping, laundry, getting out the Christmas decorations, decorating the inside of the house. Prince Charming was hoping to put some lights on the front of the house . . . but it we ran out of daylight.
Once again we had the discussion of “We need to get the Christmas cards done” and as of right now, we still haven’t gotten them done. We’ve bought them . . . they just have been addressed. To be honest . . . I put mine somewhere safe and now I can’t remember where they are!
We’ve had supper. We’re still doing laundry. We’re going to watch whoever is playing on Sunday Night Football . . . right now I’m one ahead of him in the football pool!
There are still issues we have to face with his dad’s health and the treatment schedule. There are still issues with Prince Charming’s moving-slower-than-molasses divorce. There are always gonna be financial issues relating to the moving-slower-than-molasses divorce . . . but we aren’t worrying about those right now.
Today we are boringly normal!
Yes, I know . . . I’m never here anymore! And that’s after I agreed to the Post A Day thing . . . I know. I suck. I’m sorry.
Yes, I know . . . It’s boring to read about Prince Charming all the time. All I ever do is talk about him. But I can certainly tell you that it’s not boring being this happy with Prince Charming. I spent a lot of lonely years wishing and dreaming for this kind of happiness. It always seemed like it was just out of my grasp. What was I doing wrong? Everybody else had it (or so it seemed) . . . why couldn’t I?
Prince Charming still doesn’t have a job . . . and the economy here in Smalltown is still very stunted . . . but he continues to look and he still has hope that he will find something (anything) soon . . . and he’s still trying to explain to The Queen’s (his STBX) attorney how he’s supposed to comply with a temporary support order if he doesn’t have a job . . . if you are a praying person we’d appreciate if you’d say one or two for him/us.
We’re still the disgustingly happy couple that everyone thinks has been together forever. We go. We do. We laugh. We share. When they catch us kissing in the kitchen, Rocky and Millie look at us like “Oh, man, do you have to keep doing that?!” I just realized yesterday that Millie has spent as much of her life with Prince Charming as she did with the Ex-Hubby.
Remember how I kept wondering when “boringly normal” would come back to my life? Well, it’s here! And I’m thrilled!
I promise I’ll be around more often . . .
Yes, I know . . . you’ve heard that before!
