The Big Idea

So welcome to the Cuckoo's Nest!

This is a big year for me. After years of dating and dating and DATING, I finally found the right guy for me--Joe. And he's an awesome guy. I have been assured by many that I feel this way because I'm a newlywed, and being "newly wed" is supposed to be a huge experience. Sometimes I can gain perspective on the magnitude of the situation, but I have to be honest here. Married life feels a whole lot like Living Together Life. Except now he's legally bound to stay with me.

We tied the knot on June 5th, 2010. It was a gorgeous ceremony, but then again, I might be biased.

When I try to imagine what this blog could potentially be, it encompasses a lot more than just marriage. It will most likely cover everything topical to my life, which in turn, will undoubtedly impact my relationship. It could be a ripple effect, or it could very well be a relationship tsunami. Needless to say, Joe and I are ready to "hunker down" throughout it all.

I can't promise ridiculous shenanigans, farces, or fireworks, but I do know that if people are willing to watch "The Housewives of [Name Your City]" and "Bethany Getting Married", I might just stand a chance in hell of finding someone actually willing to follow me.

So tonight is a Thursday. If anyone knows us, you know that Thursday night is Joe's "Scotch Night". It's a very exciting time. He makes himself wait until after some designated time in his head, and then he cracks open the Scotch. He drinks two. Three if he's feeling spunky. I, of course, feel it absolutely necessary to have a glass or two of wine along with him. What can I say? It makes me jovial.

For example, while watching "The Policewomen of Memphis", my hubs makes the astute observation that one of the women "runs like a girl". Duh. Nevertheless, I feel it necessary to bring up the fact that he has ugly things to say about women who "walk like men". Hrmmm.

What an oxymoron.
