Monday ramblings...

Hey Everybody,

It's Monday... and no more Monday Night Football... oh dear... what will I do?
I love football, love football season, and its almost over... Waaaaaa... sniff, sniff, at least I can look forward to the college bowl games on Thursday and then NFL playoff weekend... GO CHARGERS!!!!

When I first met Sam and we started watching football together... Whenever a player would stick out his arm towards another player and make them go down I would call it a 'strong arm' it is actually called a 'stiff arm'... for months Sam didn't tell me it was a 'stiff arm'... One day someone told me "Kendra, its a stiff arm, a strong arm is a robbery"
I asked Sam why he didn't tell me that... he said he thought it was cute... so to this day... I call it a 'strong arm' and he always smiles...
I mean jeez you gotta have a pretty strong arm to do that right?

You know.... I am a very lucky woman after 25 years, I love him more today than I ever have... He knows everything about me, and loves me anyway... Like how I repeat myself constantly... with so many kids and their friends sometimes I don't know who I told what story to... when I tell one of my kids the same thing they always say "MOM, you already told me that!" but when I tell Sam the same thing he says "Judge Whoppner" which is a line from the movie Rainman "Gotta watch Judge Whoppner at 4 O'clock" Dustin Hoffman repeats that throughout the movie... that is Sam's way of saying "you already told me that" and it makes me laugh every time... Then he says lovingly "Your my little wee-tard"

Yesterday Sam and I went in the hot tub... the sun was shining, the snow is all gone... it felt good... well... when I go in the sun... my freckles come out...

I remember on our second date Sam and I went for a bike ride at the beach and later that day we were kissing... suddenly he looked at me and said "OMG you have freckles" I was horrified, I hated my freckles... but he thought they were cute...
So fast forward to yesterday he said "Hey freckle face" I groaned "Ohhh you KNOW I HATE my freckles!" he kissed all over my face and said "but you KNOW I love them!" I melted like butter...

25 years later and he can still melt me like butter...

Recently, Kameron's girlfriend had to write a paper on marriage for a college class she was attending... She had to interview someone who had been married for 20 years or more...
One of the questions was... What advice do you have for newlyweds...
I said two things...


Number 1 - Marriage is like a roller coaster ride, lots of high highs and lots of low, lows. The trick is to stay on the ride because if you get off all you will find is a different roller coaster ride with different high, highs and different low, lows. There is NO perfect merry go round marriage.

and my favorite...

Number 2 - When the grass starts looking greener on the other side of the fence... Honey, its time to start watering yours!

I see so many flat and anesthetized marriages, and shorter than yours. I think your attitude(and hot sex ;-)keeps your marriage so special.
