We are a quirky couple, The Professor and I.
I admit it. It's hard not to miss. He dresses like Dilbert and I'm borderline hippie in my jeans and t-shirts. If Flip-flops didn't hurt my feet so, I'd wear them.
But as odd as we are -- we are perfect for each other.
When I can not believe in myself - He does.
When He is stressed about work - I get stressed, too, but I do try to show him where the glass is still half full.
A good visual for us would be balloon weights and helium-filled balloons.
He holds me down - and still lets me soar.
I love him.
We've been married for 12 years.
And I've been thinking it was 11 years....because I didn't bother to do the math. Just went with a number. He never said anything. Math genius that he is, he never rubbed it in. Because he knew I'd figure it out. Eventually.
We traded DVD sets for gifts - because none of our TV channels are coming in.
I gave him Firefly and CSI:NY.
He gave me Burn Notice and Animaniacs Season 2.
I heart him.
Sometimes, I feel like we've achieved the status of "old married couple" because we often go our separate ways around the house. But really - it's because we make such a good team.
I keep falling in love. :-) And I like that.
