Are We Alone?

That was the title on the latest National Geographic. It was talking about the vastness of the Universe. And no, I don't think so.

I took an out of town trip with a friend of mine and our 2 boys. We had alot of time to talk. Some how it got around to who is the boss in the marriage. He laughed and said that he didn't know any guy who had any significant control within his marriage. He thought that was even funnier since he and all his friends are Mormon and supposidly in patriarchal marriages. I half jokingly said that once the women figure out we want in their pants then it's all over for us.

I guess we aren't alone!!

A Funny Thing

With all the comments from my last post I thought I should write about something funny.

My wife forgot how to coffee. As my few faithful readers know, I make it and serve it to her daily. It's our "thing." Our connect time and a daily reminder that however much we struggle, it still is a wife-led marriage.

I was out of town and she called me. She was attempting to set it up and have it automatically turn on the next morning. But she hit the auto button twice by mistake and as she was lying in bed she heard it percolating.

How's that for being in a wife led marriage? Certain aspects of our WLM are such an everyday part of our life that it leads to forgetting how to do certain things. I bet she can't remember the last time she cleaned a toilet either.

Forgot how to turn on the coffee pot (or at least the timer.) Very funny and it makes me quite happy actually.
