a sorry list of seven things...


I'm sorry I don't have the easy pull back into a ponytail kind of hair
that would make our mornings so much easier
and
that I looked like a goon while we were dating in high school
~~
I'm sorry I don't like to cook and really only know how to make a few dishes that can be called "your favorites"
~~
I'm sorry my feet stink when I wear my tennis shoes
due to the fact that I can't stand to wear socks with my shoes
~~
I'm sorry my desk is always a mess
even though every time you need something I can find it in two seconds flat
which still amazes you after all these years
~~
I'm sorry I hog the clicker when we're watching television
sort of
~~
I'm sorry I leave cabinet doors open and never run into them
even though you do
~~
I'm sorry I'm addicted to my computer
~scratch that~
no I'm not
~~
but
I'm not sorry that even though I have a list 10 times longer than this one
you still love me
just the way I am
*
I was given an award and tagged "to tell you seven things about myself"
by dani and this is all I could come up with for today since my body
and mind are all mushy from working so hard helping my sister and her family move
into their new house
so
maybe tomorrow I'll be a little more coherent
but today I'm sore and missing my honey a little bit more than usual
so
I hope this makes you smile
or
at least confirms for you that
our teenagers today have it so easy
not having to live
through those flipped out farrah fawcett hair days

  1. Hey, you don't have to be sorry about any of those things! Except perhaps for the Farrah Fawcett hair! Lol.

  3. I have to say your 70's hair looks very fashionable for that era not goon like at all.

    If I could change anything about my self my hair would be first choice.

    This was a fun post to read :)

  5. Don't apologize...it's called living! (Except for maybe the cabinet thing...my ex used to do the same thing, and it drove me crazy!) I think you're great just the way you are.

  10. This post and the two before it are so full of Beth. And no, Toni doesn't have to put up with Farrah-layers. Her hair looks more Joan Baez, if you ask me.
