Not That Any of This is New To Some of You

I don’t have time for all the social networks out there. Actually, I have the time, but I just hate them. Plus, I can only really keep track of one place – this blog. It’s the same for t.v. shows; I really only have space in my life for 2, maybe 3 shows. There are more important things for me to be doing than be tied down to the drama of a t.v. show.

Where did I go wrong? That seems weird?

Anyway, I’ve been reading this couple’s meme on other peoples blogs and I thought “what an easy way to post!” since I’ve been slacking – and I’m sure everyone is sick of me talking about being pregnant.

What are your middle names?
No middle name for me. Rex for Justin – totally awesome I think.

How long have you been together?
About 9 years.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
2 years? But I should really be counting in months because we met while Marching in Phantom Regiment, 3 months out of the year. Then we’d go home to our little lives and sorta talk to each other randomly. (More like, he’d email me when he was single…again.)

This reminds me: One time after we’d been home from tour for about 5 months, I decided to call him up and see how he was doing. I was on the phone with him for about 2 minutes before he said, “I don’t mean to cut you short, but I just realized I leave for London in like 3 hours and I haven’t even packed.” The nice person I was, of course got off the phone with him but I thought, “What kind of guy doesn’t know when he leaves for a trip like London?!?” What a dummy.

And that was the last time I spoke to him until the next summer. See, months, not years.

Who asked whom out?
Well, you don’t really ask anyone out while on tour. You just hang out a lot. After tour, we were both going to the end of season banquet (months later), and since I was flying in and he was driving, I asked if he’d like to pick me up at the airport. So I guess, me?

How old are each of you?
Both 31, but not for long!

Whose siblings do you see the most?
At first, no ones. Now that we’ve moved to MN, his bro moved back too. So we see his brother.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
In my opinion, getting laid off. Not sure what he thinks is the hardest. But I’m sure it’ll be parenting soon enough.

Did you go to the same school?

Are you from the same hometown?
Nope. Me, Texas. Him, Minnesota

Who is smarter?
Some days I know it’s him, but other days I know it’s me. Depends on the topic.

Who is the most sensitive?
When it comes to animals, I’ll cry and he knows it. I once was in a drive-thru line that took FOREVER. But while waiting, I could hear this yelping. Louder and louder. So I got out of the line and drove around until I could find it. In the back of a strip mall was a vets office and they had this caged area (for storage – NOT for dogs). There, caged was this little beagle dog, skinny (SUPER skinny) and howling. I was so upset by it, I drove around to the front of this vets office and barged in and said, “Do you know there’s a sick dog in your storage area behind the office?!?!?!” The receptionist casually said, “Yes, we know. The dog has parvo and we have to quarantine it.” Then the vet came into the lobby to let me know that was the only place for it or else it would have gotten every other animal sick.

Not satisfied by this answer, I left and drove back around and there was another couple out of their car, on the phone. I got out and spoke to them. They were calling the police (he was off duty). The couple called me later in the day to let me know the cops had the vet take the dog inside.

I was so upset by the way the dog looked and sounded, I went home crying like a baby. Justin had to calm me down.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?

No particular place but we do love Mexican food.

Who has the craziest exes?

Who has the worst temper?
A temper to me means throwing stuff and abuse and we definitely don’t have that going on. But we can get angry with each other.

Who does the cooking?
We share it for the most part. Unless he’s found a recipe he wants to try.

Who is the neat-freak?
This is hard because we both have certain ways of doing things and keeping things in order. But as for a “neat-freak”, I’d have to say neither.

Who is more stubborn?
We’re both stubborn. Oh, let there be a little hope for our kid. Just a little. Please?
