My Favorite Poem

I found this many years ago when I was a newlywed. I think it describes perfectly how I feel most days.

Me and Her

She is compulsive.
I am impulsive.
She likes it hot.
I like it cold.
She is neat.
I'm a slob.
Andy Rooney says, "A's marry Z's."
But we are in different alphabets.
I push.
She pulls.
She says, "Up."
I say, "Down."
She is night.
I am day.
Living together is hard.
Living without her would be impossible.

I'm a Single Mom (just for 10 days)

So this week and part of next, my husband is in Colorado. He had plans to go to a wedding over the weekend, but his grandfather (who we call "Gramps") died last week. So he took off 4 days earlier than planned. Where does this leave me? At home with 3 boys who miss their daddy like crazy. If anyone has the bright idea to come rob us, you'd better think twice. We have things like baseball bats, nerf guns, butter knives, tigers, and giant worms to scare you away!
