What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break?
There have been a lot of giant steps for me in the last 16 years with Mercy. In fact, many people along the way kept waiting for my leg to get broken, it never did.
Everyone in my life were just like many of the viewers on Earth of the Moon Landing. They had no clue what the Moon was really like, so they just let their imagination run wild. They used their own experiences to color what they saw. They couldn’t see what the surface was actually like.
Why do people judge everything with there own eyes? We all do it. How often do we see the actions of a complete stranger and make a lot of assumptions about what is really going on? I know I do it all the time. Maybe it is entertainment for us.
But why do we do it to our friends too? I think we do it to be right. To be able to say, “I knew that was going to happen.” Continue reading
Write about silence…
When do I
hear feel silence? Never
Right now I am sitting on my couch. Mercy is asleep. Even my cat, Gidget, is asleep on my feet. Here are the sounds in the background:
- TV — Moonstruck
- The refrigerator — I really need to have the management look at it. I’ve never had a fridge that loud. Continue reading
I LOVE Mercy. I have always stood with her in all her trials in tribulations for the last 16 years. Does that mean that I haven’t wanted to strangle her at times? Of course not! We have a passionate relationship.
We are not the couple who broadcast our passion. You know these people. They have their fights in the grocery store in front of you in line. Or they invite you over to hang out, only to find out that they really wanted a referee.
We don’t hide our troubles, but we keep them off the headlines. Close friends know what we fight about, but don;t have to witness the fights…much better for keeping our plea of temporary insanity for when we kill each other.
Okay, we fight. But we also makeup and we have moments of growth in between fights. And we both know that the other will be there to ‘bury any bodies without question’ for each other.
Our song is True Love by P!nk:
This song really fits our life. Mercy knows the good and the bad of me and it’s okay, and vise versa. Continue reading
I started another fight this evening related to the whole festive topic from my last post. We went and got a tree and decorations the other day. I wanted to listen to Christmas music while decorating and Mercy was opposed. After a breakdown where I explained my need for Christmas music and singing in general, Mercy agreed to a limited amount of Christmas music.
So I started putting the tree together and hanging the lights on it. I plugged in the lights and almost went blind. We got cool white instead of warm white….huge mistake. Cool white lights are way too bright for an indoor tree, unless your house always has tons of lights on that would drown out the tree lights. We tend to have less lights on during the Christmas season due to the tree. Continue reading
