W is for Wife

I've loved my wife since I laid eyes on her, a month after we "met". Since then we've had a very open relationship, never holding back. Which is not to say that we fight, and not to say that we don't, it's just that no matter how angry we may be at each other we can always make the other person laugh within five minutes of the argument winding down.

It's a good life, I just wish I got to see her more often. (stupid job on my end)

Things that have surprised me about my wife:

  1. Her knowledge of late-80s Jim Crockett/NWA wrestling.
  2. Her ability to create incredibly non-country-ish/non-hipster craft-y things. I'm torn betwen her Reading Rainbow at Mardi Gras inspired clothespin doll (you remember Levar in the fish costume, admit it) and the Adirondack chairs she made sans pattern out of popsicle craft sticks(!)
  3. Her commitment to all dogs, and their well-being, even at times to the possible detriment of her career (if she didn't work at such an open office.) We have spare leashes in our car so that any stray dogs we see can be more easily handled.
She's so easy to love, especially when she thinks she's being a pain.

Oooh -- I almost went with Captain America as the theme for my blog. Wonder Woman, though, had better hair.

Thanks, I've been reading your blog for a while, and was especially touched by your posts about wanting (and owning) a Barbie as a boy.

My own Barbie actually came from a neighbor's garage sale, complete with tiny wigs and a spare outfit. I'm sure I caused quite a stir when I bought it, but being raised by my mother and my sister for the most part shielded me from most of it.

However, my older brothers mocked me enough that I was forced to hide her in my sock drawer for fear that some harm would come of her.

Ow! Colors!

Yeah, I've been meaning to tone down the link color. I'm still not sure about the shade of red on the sides. Now it almost seems too dark.

I was going to comment on how you are often seem annoyed by my crafting and my need to pick up stray dogs but then I saw that you said simply surprised you, not pleasantly surprised. So I guess you covered yourself!

I would play with a doll with wigs today.
