Oh the Selfish Things We Do.

When you get married, you share everything. Am I right? Food, bed, TV, activities, shower time, etc.

WRONG!!

While you do share most things, there are those times where you want to be selfish. I am so selfish. I need to work on it.

Or do I?

My Selfish List:

1.I like when the husband leaves out of town. Not for days and days, but sometimes its nice to have my OLD side of the bed back. And to be able to sprawl out across the whole bed without someone next to you yelling for you to scoot over because your being a bed hog. Also then I can stay up as late as I want and watch all my shows that he doesn't like. Currently its NipTuck. SOO GOOD! He cant stand the "Gore".

2.I like my own shower time. While I love that husband likes to shower with me, sometimes I would like to just stand/ sit in a HOT HOT shower without him telling me its too hot and having to turn it to luke warm for him to come in.

3.I like to drink out of the carton. Is this wrong? Am I the only one? haha, maybe I am because I know its gross, and immature, and I am not ashamed. My grandma would be ashamed of me for sure.
Right Grandma?


4.If there is one bite left of anything, I take it before he can. Rude? Maybe, but ladies first right?

5.I hate cooking. Last week was the first night I have cooked in over 6 months. NO LIE! Aside from the Mac and Cheese, and bagels. I made Mexican burritos in the oven and it was SO good. Its not that I hate cooking, its that I hate having to cook all the time. In the olden days it was the wives job to make sure dinner was on the table and the house was clean, and laundry done by the time husband got home. Who ever the heckdecided on that should be shot. Now days the wife works just as much as the husband, who has time to get all the chores done. So husband has been good about helping around the house-ish. OK. I got off subject there...

6.I like to go to the restroom with the door open. But ever since reading Jessica's Story from Twosmuppies (This is a warning that it gets a little graphic, she will also warn you in the paragraphs before the story, just so you know) I may be a little afraid to leave the door open now.

7.When we go out to dinner, I like to choose where we are going. Sometimes I let him choose.
8.I like to have girls nights. I always tell William that he is not allowed to text or call me while I am out with the girls unless its important. Rude? I don't think so.

There is more that a Wife can be selfish about, but I don't want you all to think I am the worst wife ever. So I'll stop here.


Then there are those things that are OK to be selfish about

1. Like when William has to go out of town for a work trip and I ever so lady like throw a tantrum. Like I am 4 years old.

2. When William has to work until late and I am at home alone, with the fur babies and I text him a million things, and dont stop asking "How much longer" "Do you miss me" "On your way?" "Im bored" "Dont forget to bring me home a popsical"

3. When I have the day off and William asks if I want to help in an event, or at the shop and I say no because I would rather get a tan.

4. When William cant go on a trip because he has work. While I do feel bad about leaving him home, there is no way I am going to miss out on the trip.



What are you selfish about?

XOXO, TERE

  3. Oh how I wish I were you and could do those things. What I do that's selfish is purposefully plan to do things when I know my lover will be working, like errands, because I am SO MUCH MORE DANG EFFICIENT! I need to go to the store alone because taking him is like taking a kid.

  4. HA HA! Just another reason why I love you, Tere.
    We need to have a girls night asap, gosh dang it!
    Save up for a king size bed. Seriously, we bought one when we moved to miserable Cedar and it's the best. I can totally sprawl and not even bother Eric! And it's going to be great when I'm huge with a baby and can sleep with a billion pillows!

    1. William doesn't want a king because he will feel far away from me. But gosh dang it, I need space. Denise is coming, we're planning a date. We tagged you on Facebook with no reply. Rude.

  6. What an honest post, I really enjoyed it. When we pick movies they are usually more geared to my tastes than his. I can't stand an overly gory movie or most with sad endings. I sometimes drink out of the carton too, but so does hubs ;)
