Marriage Lists

Sometimes when I think, I like to think in the form of lists. Recently, I've been thinking about what Jeff and I gained in our marriage—the deeper, nitty gritty, if you will. :)

When I married Jeff, I gained . . .
  • someone to kill undesirable (okay scary) insects and creepy crawlies;
  • someone to go out to the shed during the night;
  • someone to take out the trash;
  • someone to enter the crawlspace;
  • someone to be Jill's "horsey";
  • someone to drive whenever we're both in the car;
  • someone to bring "home the bacon," so I can stay at home;
  • someone to give Priesthood blessings;
  • someone to take me out on dates;
  • someone to teach me patience;
  • someone to always care about my day;
  • someone to love;
  • someone to reach the top cupboards; and
  • someone to calm me down.
When Jeff married me, he got . . .
  • more than he bargained for!!
Haha, okay, seriously, the real list. :)

When Jeff married me, he got . . .
  • someone to birth babies;
  • someone to nurture children;
  • someone to make him breakfast and dinner;
  • someone to do the dishes;
  • someone to love;
  • someone to clean his laundry;
  • someone to teach him patience;
  • someone to buy the groceries;
  • someone to care about his day;
  • someone to be his biggest cheerleader at any of his sporting events;
  • someone to go to collegiate and professional sporting events with;
  • someone to greet him at the end of the day;
  • someone to write and mail all the birthday, thank you, and congratulations cards; and
  • someone to remember birthdays.
So, who do you think got the better end of the deal?

I know, I know, we both made out like bandits!!


  1. Aw, what a great list!

    I also think in lists.

    And, I still love that picture of you two.

    AND I posted a comment on that blog we looked at today. I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about it. BUT, you know how I feel about reading blogs without commenting, so I couldn't help myself. We'll see if she publishes it... dun dun dun.

  2. What great lists! One thing I got when I married Scotty was someone to bring me a glass of water. I think it's something that he ends up doing a lot!

    By the way, I like your new background!

  3. yeah the background is really cool- i like how the words are right on the picture :) and i love your boquet.
    i like the trash one the best. that is the worst chore ever! i think if something happened to nick i would have to hire a maid to do just that.


What's on your mind?
