OK-I want to know when the definition of Romance changed?
When I was younger I thought that romance was all lovey dovey, kisses and hugs and perfume. I know that last one sounds kind of strange, but remember those Baby Soft commercials?
They were all about smelling good for "that" guy, and then at the end they would kiss.
I was young, what can I say?
I grew up, Jr high and high school were really nothing too exciting for me. My husband tells me that I intimidated all the boys. Do u think that was a nice was of saying that I was bossy.
Then college arrived and my whole idea of romance changed again. I met my husband and we were head over heals for each other. He would shower me with long stemmed roes that smelled like peaches and I would wash his clothes and cook for him. We couldn't get enough of each other, we would write each other love notes and kiss. Go to movies and kiss. We would hand out and kiss. We even went ice fishing and then we kissed. You get the idea. I am sure that all of you did the same thing. Don't roll your eyes at me!!
Then I got married, had some children and carry on with my life. You know how life gets, school, work, all the extra curricular activities that goes along with family! And then of course there is dinner. I hate dinner time. Mostly because I have to think of something that everyone in my little, picky family will eat. So I cook it and then I have to clean it up.
Not to mention the laundry, the bathrooms and every other room in the house.
You know exactly what I am saying.
I am overworked, underpaid and tired.
Then the romance of married life kicks in.
No, it's not what you think or maybe it is.
Maybe your hubby is romantic like this.
"Honey, can I do the dishes for you. I'll switch the laundry too. The girls will clean their room, and I will make sure that they don't fight.
Why don't you go and lay down and read that book that you got. I will take care of everything else.
I am thinking I can hardly wait until the kids go to bed.
Could my husband be anymore romantic?
So, I was just wondering, when along the way did the whole romance idea change?
Now, don't get me wrong-I appreciate flowers and my hubby brings me treats all the time. I do put on perfume and smelly lotion for him.
Let me tell you, when my hubby offers to do the dishes AND vacuum, well........
So am alone in thinking this? If I am, I don't care, I still think that vacuuming is HOT!
