The Joys of Marriage

I remember in high school I used to be out very late at night on weekends. My nights consisted of grabbing some fast food dinner, hanging out at friends houses, traveling the neighborhood streets, watching movies, more fast food runs to get ice cream and other random things. Then college came and things changed a little bit. A little more studying, less staying out late. Then I got married.....

Here we are on Friday night. Chris has been watching the Jazz game in our bedroom and fell asleep. I was in the living room watching Food Network, made myself some Mac & Cheese and played on the computer all night. What happened to having fun and staying out late doing fun and crazy things? We are the most boring couple ever!

I think that you get married, get jobs, work your butt off all week and then crash come Friday night! I have decided that we need a child to give us some energy and something to do. Until then...anyone want to hang out Friday nights?

A child to GIVE you energy? Are you sure you know what a child is? :)

You crack me up! But what you said is soo true! I find my husband and I in the same situation quite often! Growing old sure changes things! And kids definatley keep you busy...I don't know if they GIVE you energy...rather than you just have to have it to keep up with them. But they sure do make things more fun and exciting!!! So when are you going to make that happen??? :)

Umm, Amber, I hate to break it to you, but as a new mother, a child CERTAINLY does NOT give you energy. I have found my experience to do quite the opposite. I long for the times when Brady is sleeping, so that I too can rest from long days and seemingly even longer nights. Don't get me wrong, I love him more than anything. I'm definately finding myself haveing to muster up the energy to do simple things, like blog. Let me express that babies and having children do not make the world all rosy and wonderful. They are ALOT of work. Children do make the world more joyful and fufilling, I won't deny that, but they are not the fix-it-all solution that some people deem them to be.
