Do what I want - not what I'm asking: Stream of consciousness Sunday

I've read weeks of Stay at Home Babe's and All Things Fadra's stream of consciousness Sunday entries. This week's SAHB post pushed me to another post...and both inspired me to sit for 5 min while Babygirl played to write this. It is harder than one would think to NOT hit the backspace and correct your mistakes when the little red squiggle pops up. Next time, I'll write in "Notebook" so you can all see how HORRIBLE my typing/spelling/grammar really is!

I'm a difficult person to get along with. (ending first sentence with preposition...way to go)

The closer I let a person get to me -- the more they become familiar with thtat fact.

The three people that are most familiar with my difficult-to-handle status are my husband, daughter, and stepson.

Come cuddle - give me space.
Come talk to me - shut up I'm watching tv.
Give me kisses - stop slobbering on me.
I want to feel needed - why are you all so needy?
Give me some alone time - why are you all avoiding me??

Emotional rollercoaster.

Hubs puts up with a lot.

Be funny - stop making stupid jokes - stop saying you aren't going to be funny though.
Make me feel sexy - stop staring at my boobs - be spontaneous - can't you see I'm busy??

I'm terrible.

He still loves me. And I still love him.

We've been through a lot.

We know that we're bigger than my moods. They come. They go. Medication helps.
We're best friends - even when we're each other's greatest potential enemy.
We're both wonderful parents, great partners, fantastic lovers.

Life is good.

Babe, I love you - now go somewhere for the weekend with the kids so I can REALLY miss you!

If you can relate to this post...this song sums it up to a T!!

No one has ever written it out in a way that makes sense to me but everything you said makes sense to me. I mean, REALLY makes sense. I always say that my husband is a difficult man but readily admit I'm a difficult woman. Together, we're raising a difficult child. Luckily, we're 10 years in and I'm pretty sure it's for the long haul.

I love this post. It is so true. I have been married for 11 years and together for 13. I may not always like my husband but I love him fiercely. I am also hard to live with, I know that and he knows it too. But he is still with me which leads me to believe the good times always outweigh the bad.
