For the most part, y’all only hear my side of the story. He asks me a million questions. He wants to go know what I’m doing; where I’m going. But, as you might have guessed, there’s his side of this story too.
I really should start doing “Daily Conversations with Vince” because some of them are hilarious . . and some of them are not! 🙂
Yesterday we were driving to Brady. I was knitting and talking . . as usual. I don’t know how we got on the subject but we were talking about people without hobbies. I have a couple of friends who really don’t have any hobbies.
Oh . . I know how we got on this subject. After the friends without hobbies conversation . . I’m still trying to convince him that living in Arkansas is too expensive . . that we should stay in our house here, remain Texas residents and have the little house in Nevada, MO. In Arkansas, we would have to pay for electricity, internet, personal property tax (cars — which you have to guess that some day we WILL get a new car!), income tax, trash (we pay about $10 – 15 per month here and it’s probably about $70 per month there for trash pickup.
Me: It’s just hard to justify the extra expense of living in Arkansas.
Vince: Yes, we figured it up and it’s a lot of money.
Me: That’s money I could spend on yarn!
Vince: I was thinking it’s money we could spend on other things.
Me: Just think . . where would I be without knitting and sewing? I might have to take meds or see a counselor.
Vince: Or, just be normal and don’t spend money on yarn.
Me: If I didn’t buy yarn, and knit, I don’t know what I’d be doing . . probably driving you crazy.
Vince: That’s pretty much what happens every day anyway!
What did he just say? He’s saying I drive him crazy every day? I was almost offended except I just said here on the blog that he’s driving me crazy! It’s the mutual drive each other crazy marriage! Who doesn’t have that kind of marriage? 🙂
We both laughed about it and decided we’re pretty lucky to have each other. Here . . on our 22nd anniversary, I think about how lucky I am that things worked out like they did. I can’t imagine how my life might have gone without Vince. I joke and give him a hard time, and obviously, he does the same to me but life is pretty darned good at our house.
