Like 1995?

On a recent trip to Houston, Texas, we traveled by the huge statue of Sam Houston on Interstate 45.  My husband and I took the opportunity to explain to our six-year-old about the man depicted in the statue.  Bruce explained a brief portion of Texas history and then I concluded with, “He lived a very long time ago,” to which my daughter responded “like 1995?”  Ouch!

I wear my hair spiked up in the back in a style that sort of looks like bed-head.  In fact, a lady once told me, “honey, I wake up looking like that, and I work hard to fix it”.  I told her, “Well, don’t work so hard!”

When growing up I loved to watch Clark Kent turn into Superman. He was a shy, normal, everyday guy until he put on that cape and the superman clothes.

He was proud and confident when clothed in garments that made him a new person.

What should I fix for supper?  Where should I shop for new shoes?  Who should I ask to help me with that project?  When should I take vacation this year?  Do any of you wish for a decision-free day?  Just one!  Then you wouldn't have this conversation:

Cheese Curls

When I got married, I tried so hard to shop for the groceries my husband enjoys.  But there was one particular item that I didn't get right until twenty years into my marriage.  Russ likes the puffed cheese curls, but I have an aversion for them.  When I was a kid I had the mumps, and that was one food I tried to eat that really made me sick.  So I never ate them again.  And I never bought them for Russ because I felt it was wasteful to purchase something only one of us would enjoy.  Instead I purchased chips we both liked.  Over the years, there have been a few times I have tried the crunchy cheese curls at sandwich shops, and I liked them!  Not Russ—he hated them.  So our dilemma continued.  Now this line of reasoning just doesn't make sense.  I buy coffee for Russ when I don't drink it.  This last week, we were shopping together and noticed that these cheese curls were on sale two for one, and we could each get the kind we enjoy the most.  We feel so spoiled this week to have our own bag of chips!  Now why did this take so long to realize?!
