Mr. and Mrs. Independent

My Huz and I had a little conversation today yesterday. Time flies, no?

We talked about our independent spirits… if you will.

Basically, we both have a hard time with not being in supreme power delegation. We both agree, it is a pain in the butt to have to coordinate with others. It feels like more work to share decision-making.

It’s not that we are lazy, it’s that we are in a hurry. Not to mention, we both like being the boss. Takethatasyouwill.

I am anything but co-dependent. Unless it comes to the trash. I co-depend on him to take the garbage to the road. Our drive is steep and 2 football fields long plus 100 feet. I am smart enough to know when delegation is smart… and the lawn. I co-depend when it comes to mowing the lawn too.

Not that I CAN’T do these things… it’s that I am so sweet and dainty. Demure, even…

Shut up.


Mid convo, I blurted, “So THAT is why We are so great together!”

It seems we are so consumed by our own projects and roles and whathaveyou, that we are both thankful neither is uber-needy/co-dependent/cling-ish. I can leave the man for 5 days and he’s right as rain. Whatever THAT means.

He can climb deep down into his man-cave and it’s fine – I haz gots things to do… and I’m not talkin’ laundry, yo. Though I do have that to do, but that is not the to-do I am talkin’bout heeya. I have a blog. So…

Though we do LIKE to spend time together, even LONG to spend more time together… we have come to a place where it’s not personal that we are not each others’sses (???) shadow.

And the time we DO co-depend? Well… It’s magical…

*A special thanks to Scott Bue for capturing this on video. And to all the people at Lisa’s party – first my huz as Aaron Neville then in Michelle’s disco outfit. I am still shaking my head… A night to never forget, indeed… And a night to wash-out one’s ears and, and then one’s eyes…

Baby. I co-depend on you. Sometimes.


Keep up on the ridiculous, the insightful, the always digressive…
