1. I don't like to get up early.2. The name of my dry cleaner (Mrs. Kim), my deli guy (Cobby) the guy at the Mobile station (Nguyen), and the homeless/mentally challenged fellow who pushes a cart in my sister's neighborhood (Van). They all have names...and stories.3. I don't set the heat at 72 degrees anymore. 67 degrees with a light fleece on is just fine, thank you.4....more
I honestly didn't know the hubs was such a tool guy when I married him. Sure, there were a wide array of duplicate power tools on his old wooden boat, but all boat guys have tools, right? What did I know?

My husband and I were married five years ago yesterday. When we were married, my husband joked that he was in it for the long haul - which he said was for 30 years. Ha. Ha Funny.
