The Meme of Us

I found this fun relationship meme at Ms. Zoot’s site and thought it would be fun to share with ya:

How long have you been together? 13.5 years!  We started dating during my first semester of University.  He kept buying me drinks at a pub night for Phys. Ed. students that featured a sub-eating contest. 

How long did you date?  You mean like before we got married?  9.5 yrs  I was ready to tell him to shit or get off the pot when he FINALLY proposed.

How old is he?  35

Who eats more?  When I’m pregnant or nursing I do.  Actually when I’m training for a marathon I eat more as well.  I guess the answer is me!

Who said ‘i love you’ first?  I think he did.  He signed the first Valentine card that he gave me: "Love, Rob".  He’s a very serious person so I knew that he meant it.

Who is taller?  He is.  At 5’2 almost everyone is taller than me.

Who is smarter?  Him.  Definitely him.  He is much more analytical than me and sees things from every angle.

Who does the laundry? Me.  Well, I do my laundry, the girls’ laundry, towels and sheets.  He does his own laundry.

Who does the dishes?  Me

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?  We both do.  He snores so freaking much that we sleep in seperate rooms. 

Who pays the bills? He does – I’m a stay-at-home mommy!

Who mows the lawn?  He does.  Our "lawn" is freaking HUGE and it takes him a couple of hours so it generally only gets cut once a month during the summer.  In his defence it also grows very slowly ’cause we don’t water it.

Who cooks dinner?  I do.  Not that anybody in this house likes what I cook.

Who is more stubborn? Ha!  Definitely me!  Though he does have some strong ideas….

Who kissed who first?  I’m pretty sure I kissed him first, though I have beer induced amnesia about the whole event.

Who asked who out?  I did.  I called him and we went out for dinner.  He asked me where I wanted to go.  I replied "Arby’s".  He preferred a place where we would use cutlery, so I suggested Swiss Chalet.  I took him to the cleaners there.  I ate:

  • a salad
  • full rib dinner with fires
  • super sundae

Who proposed?  He did.  It was the night before the Casino Niagara Marathon.  He took me for a romantic freezing cold rainy walk along Niagara Falls, found a cute tree, got down on one knee and popped the question.  I cried, and said yes!  I ran only about 20 miles of that cold rainy marathon the next day ’cause I couldn’t wait to go home and tell my parents! 
After that we kept with the "Casino" theme and got married 5 months later at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas!

Who is more sensitive?  Me – I take EVERYTHING personally.

Who has more friends?  Me – not that I’m nicer or anything, it’s just that he spends all of his limited free time at home with us playing "Princess".
