I kinda like the idea of making blog posts by having a set number of things to say. So I have inspired myself to do yet another list...
This time I am making a list called:
Top Ten Things I THINK Pete Thinks You Should Know About Me
#1 Since Lisa has had the van she has run over EVERY curb in town at least 10 times and she doesn't seem to mind.
#2 She spends 1 hour in the bathroom EVERY morning and every time she gets a hair cut she claims "This style will really cut down on my time in the bathroom." It NEVER does.
#3 I get super nervous when she says, "Pete, I was just thinking..." which usually leads to me having to spend money that was not "in the plan".
#4 When Lisa decides she likes something there is no turning back, for a little while at least. In the beginning of our marriage she liked sunflowers so we had sunflower EVERYTHING. Now the obsession is with white plates and bowls...and white everything. Not a color that jives well with 5 ketchup lovin' dirt diggin' kiddos.
#5 When Lisa does all the girls hair it can take up to another FULL HOUR in the bathroom.
#6 Because of reasons #2 and #5 she convinced me she needed a $150 blow dryer. Even though I don't remember agreeing!
#7 When Lisa used to sit next to me in the booth's of restaurants I was always a bit uncomfortable. Although I thought she was adorable for adoring me so much I found it uncomfortable to stretch my neck when talking to her. Plus she uses a lot of salt on her food and sometimes the salt would spill on the seat and make it even more uncomfortable. I was happy when the move was made to sitting across from each other.
#8 One time before we had kids Lisa told me she thought she had a future in the personal organizer field. You know, helping people organize their lives and personal affairs. I was shocked at this dream of hers and I suggested she start with the junk drawer in our kitchen. This dream still seems to be on hold because we now have 2 junk drawers.
#9 She is the only woman I know that gets mad when her husband vacuums. She says it makes her feel like I am cleaning up behind her, like she is not doing enough. I tell her over and over again...I just see it needs to be vacuumed so I DO IT..nothing more than that. I hope she believes me because she is an amazing house keeper and I can't imagine her getting any better (italised remarks may be an embellishment on behalf of the author).
#10 I get excited every time my caller ID says it is Lisa calling because I know she always has such great things to share with me. Call anytime sweety!!
So that's it..my list on what I think Pete would want to say. I am sure his own list would be much better but we will just have to see if he writes his own list one day!!
Have A Great Top 10 Making Weekend
