I'm Not So Fun to Live With

I was thinking the other day-I am a real peach to live with. I don't think I'd like living with me all that much. I am real glad that we didn't live together before we got married, because these might have been deal breakers. I know you all think I am hilarious and charming, but I don't think Ronnie thinks I am hilarious and charming all the time.



Every single night, around 9 PM, I enter into my "witching hours." I am seriously the crankiest person alive. Everything starts to irritate me, like the dog jumping, the cat meowing, people breathing...ok just kidding about that last one. Kind of. One night, Ronnie told me "maybe you should take a nyquil and have another glass of wine and go to bed." Well, don't mind if I do husband! I am a grumpasaurus starting from 9 PM on, and in this house, we just have to laugh or else we'd cry.

I wake up between 5:00 and 5:30 for work every day because I start work at seven. Ronnie doesn't usually start work til somewhere between 8-9, and I am the loudest possible human in the mornings. I usually shower in our bathroom and then proceed to sit at the vanity in our bedroom with as many lights on as possible blow drying my hair and getting ready. I try oh so hard to be quiet, but I know I am like a bull in a china shop in the mornings.

Some nights last night I just want to come home and sit in my bed and eat cookie butter for dinner. Forget cooking, it just doesn't happen every single night.

I am also a real pain to share the bed with. I like to put my freezing feet on Ronnie's legs under the covers and steal all the blankets. I also typically can be found laying diagonal through the bed and telling my husband I don't have enough space.

Once we get nice and comfortable in bed and are about to drift off to sleep, I decide I desperatley need tea to help me fall asleep and sweetly ask my husband to drag himself out of bed and downstairs to make me tea. With lemon and honey. If you give a mouse a cookie...haha! That is so me and I'm sure my husband just loves me for it.

I also like to use my self tanner at night right before bed and cuddle up next to my husband, and listen to him whisper sweet nothings. Like, "Your face smells like a french fry." Oh, he's so romantic. And I am over here smelling like fried foods all night. You're welcome.

These are just a few of the reasons that I do not think I am the funnest person to live with. But, my husband is a saint and loves me anyway. Crazy, flaws, and crankiness, he loves me through it all. This kids is why I do not believe in living together before marriage. ;) This kind of stuff is only safe to come out in marriage.

  3. Oh my goodness! This is too great! I'm always telling my boyfriend it's a good thing he was already totally in love with me before we moved in together because the way he puts up with me makes him a saint. I'm super loud in the mornings too and I know I can't be easy to live with!

  4. This is funny! I'm also grumptastic after 9pm. *sigh* Jake let's me put my feet in 'the pocket' which is between his calves when they're cold. :) I seriously think that it's dangerous to let all of your bad habits out before marriage... Haha!

  17. I don't think any of us are 'fun' to live with but finding the person that can put up with us and love us in spite of it all is what we all aim for... besides, I am sure he isn't all that perfect either... :)

  18. I'm completely the same way at night. I start more around 10, though! It's totally a running joke in our house. Also, wake me up for no good reason and I will bite your head off. I don't know why! I snap out of it as soon as I realize what's going on!

  21. hahahaha!!!! I am dying laughing over your post. It's so true though. My husband was JUST saying that to me this morning, that HE doesn't think he's easy to live with. (He's right.. sometimes. haha) But yes, there is something that happens after 9pm... if he breathes too loud or taps his finger on his computer I'm like "STOP IT!!" (And he thinks HE'S hard to live with. Bless his heart.)
