All In The Family

Do you ever look over at your husband and think,

"If this man were any more like my dad he would be my dad!"


Yesterday my husband tried to force me to watch a History Channel documentary on copper. Oh yes-the ever fascinating topic of copper, in all of it's many forms, also demonstrating it's many many uses and (of course) highlighting its effect on and usage in history.


Dont get me wrong-I love history. I'm very pro-history. I'm even pro-documentary. I am just anti-watching-documentaries-about-metals-while-Frasier-re-runs-are-on. Not how I like to spend my 1am hours. (Yes, we're up then. That's Baby Bug's hyper time.)

It is EXACTLY the type of thing my dad would force me to do. And when I informed my husband of this, he didn't even act appropriately shamed. He just looked at me and said "I knew I liked your dad" and went back to watching the dumb metal show.

At least I know we're compatible-despite his affection for all things History Channel. I mean, I've loved my dad my whole life so it goes to figure the man I would choose to spend my adult life with would be just like him. Sometimes irritatingly so.

Still no matter how alike they are there is one huge difference.

My husband is a hottie.

Too funny! My husband and father are very similar, too! Oh, and Husband tries to make me watch the history channel and others like it often - smiles!

I got your comment about my book and appreciate your kinds words and feedback. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I'm glad to hear you liked it; and I'm glad to hear that you and your husband didn't go through some of the common newlywed drama. Reading your blog and your comments, I'm not surprised at all - smiles!

Again, thanks for taking the time to share...
