The Man in My Life

Sep 8, 2008

I want to give you all fair warning that this is a post about my husband. So if you don't want to read any of this sentimental garbage, you should probably leave right now. And if you stay, don't say I didn't warn you. I got this quiz from Joleen. Thanks!

The Man in my Life.

1. Who is your man? Richard Edwin.

2. How long have you been together? Together? What exactly signifies together? We just celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. But I knew him for about 3 years before that. Oh, I guess before I go into detail I should check the next question.

3. How long did you date?
Who knows? Hang on, let me count. Looks like it was about 3 months before I left on my mission and 3 months after my mission. But like I said, we were friends long before all that.

How old is your man? Can’t we just call him my husband? They have to be assuming husband or they wouldn’t include the question “how long did you date?” He is 37, with the face of a cherub.

6. Who said “I love you” first? He did, though I had been thinking it for a couple of years, so it was fine with me.

8. Who sings better? Me. But he will sing which I love so, so much.

9. Who is smarter? Pooh. This question stinks. But who am I kidding? He is.

13. Who sleeps on the right hand side of the bed? He does. I’m always closer to the door (all two houses so far). Don’t know what that is about, but with a baby it works out better anyway.

14. Who pays the bills? Me. I have tried sharing, or letting him do it, but I just can’t. I have to know what is going on. He would be wishing he was dead if he was doing it, because I would be bugging him about it all the time.

15. Who is better with the computer? He is. Nerd.

17. Who cooks dinner? Me. But he is the better cook. Too bad for him!

20. Who is most stubborn? He is.

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Me. Because he is so stubborn. Even when it is obvious he still won’t admit that he is wrong. Maybe twice in our marriage he has admitted he was wrong about something. I’m also always the first to apologize in a fight. I hate to fight with him, and my desire for the fight to be over always wins out over my anger in the end.

23. Who kissed who first? I don’t know. I don’t want to ask him because I’m afraid he’ll say it was me.

25. Who Proposed? He did.

26. Who is more sensitive? Me. He is, as I always tell him, a cold heartless manly man.

28. Who has more siblings? Me. 6 sisters, 1 brother, he has 2 brothers, 3 sisters.

29. Who wears the pants in the family?
Neither! We all wear kilts around here!
