Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes

I *Am* a Babygirl


For a pretty long time, I’ve been struggling to fit into a “role” – trying to figure out who I am; what I want, what I need, etc…

Until recently, I have always deceived myself in thinking that, for a female, I am very low maintenance.

When the truth is, just like any other person on this planet, I am anything but low maintenance.

I just haven’t been taking care of myself properly

And THAT needs to come, first and foremost.

Spongebob Squarepants is my hero. He is simple and naive and loving and forgiving and he seems to be at complete peace with himself (most times). He likes to try new things, he finds joy in everything and he persists in trying to make his grumpy neighbor/co-worker as joyful as he is!

I should remember, every time that I am grumpy or down in the dumps, just to turn to Spongebob.

There is much to learn in his simplicity.

Good idea coming here, Patrick.

That’s my specialty!

What? Having good ideas?

Nope. Being called Patrick.

Maybe we should do some stretches first.

Good idea!

Well, that’s MY specialty!

What? Having good ideas?

Nope. Doin’ some stretches first.


A Little More About TC


Obviously I can’t tell you too much about him, this being an ‘anonymous’ blog and all…

But we have both been very transparent with each other, thus far.

Me, especially so, having this blog and all. It’s not like I can lie to him about anything, right? I mean, we met through Twitter. His first comment to me, on Twitter, was in regards to a blog post.

The I-Team

How to Draw SpongeBob & PatrickthumbnailTuesday Loverman bought a new (to him) truck for his up-and-coming roadside assistance business. Before he bought it, instead of calling his wife he called me. He wanted me to check out the truck and ask questions about it. He wanted me to be there when he signed the papers because I am an “accountant” and he wanted to make sure that he didn’t miss anything. Isn’t that something he should be asking his wife to do with him?

When my ankle was broken, Loverman was the one who went with me to the doctor. He was the one who made sure that I was taken care of and that I was taking care of myself. When my car breaks down and I need help I call Loverman. Isn’t that something that my husband should be doing for me?

We really make a damn good team.

I can remember when it used to be like that with the husband. I guess that our teams just changed a little. We got married, had kids, got older and life became more complicated. That’s when it feels like I started working on the Family Team and he kept working on the I-Team. Every once in a while I can see that he wants to change teams to make me less angry, but it doesn’t last very long (just until I’m not angry any more) and then he’s back on the I-Team again.

But I guess I’m really on my own I-Team, too…

Aren’t we all?
