A = Acceptance LOL!

A=Acceptance. Okay, not really. But, since I have been married to Rasssbo, I have learned to ACCEPT he isn't prince charming nor a diamond in the rough. He's just... well, a wanna be chauvanist. And I have to live with that and deal with it.

I remember when I first met his family. They all looked at me and asked... "What did you do to him?" I was flabbergasted. "What?" "What do you mean?" I asked. They replied with "Well, he's so... NICE now... what did you do?" I didn't know what they meant. I thought he was a wonderful person... I didn't know he couldn't be nice, respectful or thoughtful. However, looking back, that should have been my first clue. NOT to say he isn't nice, respectful & thoughtful, because he is (or can be)... but we don't always agree. And those who know me, well, you know I am very verbal with what I think. And I guess, to his benefit, he's learned that the hard way.

So... acceptance. I have accepted I accepted him, as-is. And that's okay. I can live with that.

Glad you've accepted him, faults and all - Kudos to you. I've accepted that my brother-in-law is an asshole. You're okay though, so maybe someday there will be some redemption for him.

Congrats on the blog! I will add it to my blogroll. Oh - go to EDIT POSTS and add titles to the first few posts. They kinda get lost on the page without a bold title to separate them.

You'll get the hang of it.

You know how much I love your hubby. His dry sense of humor cracks me up. And when he gets that evil little glint in his eye, I just want to hug him, which I am sure pisses him off (I think he rolls his eyes around me more than anyone) :)
Can't wait to see you guys at Christmas!!

Yes! We actually are flying into Wichita Christmas Eve and going directly to Manhattan (to Dane's uncles house). Then we head back to Pratt the day after and don't fly home until the 30th. Hope to see you when we are there!!
