The Meme of Usus

It’s going to be a Meme kind of day…I have a tag from Melissa that I will get to (hopefully) tonight. For now, I’m tackling the tag I got from my evil twin Kat. It’s a Meme about my better half and I…I’ll try to make it interesting for you.

How long have you been together? Well, if you count the time that he didn’t KNOW we were together (when I stalked him around the halls of our high school before we met: LOL), we’ve been together since around September of 1984. Officially though, we’ve been together since November-December 1984; married since December 1986

How long did you date? Let me see if I have my math brain on…2 years and 1 month

How old is he? Currently, he is 41. (almost 2 years older than me)

Who said ‘I love you’ first? Would it be awful if I couldn’t remember? I think it was him.

Who is taller? We’re the same height, except when I wear heels! (5’7″)

Who is smarter? I always say he is smarter, and he always says that I am. I have a head for business (and a bod for sin…LOL) and math-type stuff. He is the science and history brain in the family.

Who does the laundry? We both do! I like to fold it and iron more than he does, though.

Who does the dishes? We both do!

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Depends on who you ask. I think I do. LOL

Who pays the bills? If this is actually asking “who takes care of paying the bills”, the answer would be me. If it is asking “who makes it possible to pay the bills”, that would be him.

Who mows the lawn? Mostly our kids! Yay us! But actually, I really like mowing the lawn alot (seriously!), so I will give the kids a break pretty often.

Who cooks dinner? We both do!

Who is more stubborn? I think me. Unfortunately.

Who kissed who first? He kissed me first. That I remember.

Who asked who out? He asked me out, after my subliminal hinting.

Who proposed? He did.

Who is more sensitive?
We take turns. Mostly me.

Boring, I know. I guess I have to tag some people. I know that Manic and Joeprah don’t like tags, so they’re out. My sister likes to keep her and Jeremy’s relationship on the D.L., so she’s out. I am going to tag Deanna, Sue, and Kathy. Have fun!

    That was fun. We were married in 1984–it seems like SO LONG AGO! I hope you don’t mind, but I just tagged you for 7 random things. I would love to learn more about you–in a totally non-creepy kind of way! LOL. Anyway, I’m fairly new to blogging, and now sure how people feel about being tagged, but I wanted to continue it on, and you seem like a good sport–that will teach you.

  • Kat

    That was fun indeed. I like how your husband chips in and how you can get the kids to mow the lawn. Lucky you 🙂

    P.S. Can you believe it? I wish Jules would reveal more about her time with Jeremy! I mean the Piv? When are we ever going to get close to a celeb? LOL

  • Michelle

    So umm, your post was useful because I’m the one who pays the bills, etc. I’ve been a little busy, and the online bill paying has allowed me to get really lazy. Seeing that reminded me that I hadn’t set up the payment for one bill yet this month and that it was probably due soon — not until the 10th, I’ve since discovered, but done nonetheless! Thanks! 😉

    Stacey: Ha! At first when I read that I thought you tagged me for SEVEN MEMES. Shew! What a relief! I can say that although they are not my fave thing to do, I totally don’t mind being tagged, as long as my taggers know that I can’t always get to it immediately and, with my failing memory, may eventually forget it entirely! But I haven’t done that one before and I’m looking forward to it…I’ll try it in the next few days!

    Kat: I KNOW! After all this time, she hasn’t even introduced ME to Jeremy, in person! Can you believe it???

    Michelle: Yay! I was “educational” today, AND helpful! You’re welcome! LOL

    Manic: Shoot! Oh well. I’ll getcha again!

    Kathy: You go, girl!

  • Sue

    OK, my first official tag and I have posted it already! Talk about over achieving! I think I would call your husband Mr. Helpful. Mine is more, Mr. Helpless. My mom tells me I didn’t train him right.

  • Jules

    Listen ladies, my husband Jeremy Piven is a busy man; so when we’re together it’s all about private time if you know what I’m sayin’ and I think you do.
