Yep, I'm still talking about the wedding. Actually, it's the aftermath of the wedding, but still.
The eldest is now off on her own with her husband and living the married life. It's been pretty fun gabbing with her about all of the new experiences she's having. Already, though, I can see some common threads of myself in her.
If her husband is reading this, he's probably thinking, "Holy NO, Batman! Please say my wife will be nothing like my mother-in-law!!"
But, BAM, Mr. S., she's practically there.
A few quotes from the new Mrs.:
- "I was making dinner the other night when I realized, "Crap! I have to do this every night for forever?"
- "All of these people are going out to parties and I'm thinking, "Do you know how much gas I could put in my car for the price of that dinner?"
- "I bought an oscillating fan for the bedroom. After one night of using it, I thought, "Where has that been all my life?"
- "I will NOT turn down a free meal."
- "We went to the grocery today. I'm so sorry for eating all of the fruit snacks and chips at home like they were indispensable. We're learning to ration; and I'm not kidding. Things are packaged individually for a reason. One at a time!"
- "I've got a lot of imperfections. He's (The husband) so great. He doesn't even pick them out to me, or put them in alphabetical order like I do with his..."
- To the middle child: "When you've cooked a full dinner for three people using only a toaster oven, THEN you can tell me how hard you have it."
- "I hate it when you don't text me back, mom. All I think is you could be dead or something!"
What can I say? My baby is all grown, and she's doing just fine.
Happy Tuesday, friends :)
