Dating When You're Old As Dirt
Dating in your 30's is very different than dating when you're young.
When you're young, the way to your heart tends to be fancy dinners, flowers, chocolate, or taking you somewhere really cool.
Let me tell you the way to my heart, dating in my 30's. (hey! I am only 39, I can still say I'm in my 30's thankyouverymuch!)
~~ bring me a cold Diet Dr Pepper because I told him one time it's my favorite and he was actually LISTENING and remembered.
(I'm SO low-maintenance. This was better than diamonds - just because of the thought behind it.)
~~ buying mac & cheese for Elayna because he remembered us talking one time about how it's her FAVORITE thing in the world.
~~ walking by the watermelon in the supermarket and dragging me back to get some for Shelbie because he remembered us talking one time about how it's her FAVORITE thing in the world.
~~ mowing my lawn while I'm at work, without being asked, because it was almost knee-high and I don't have a mower and I'm working and trying to balance everything and hellooo, I'm a girl.
~~ telling my son that he doesn't have to worry about his Mama, because he will take care of me. Awwwww!
~~ The only thing that makes a hard day better is knowing he'll be there at the end of the day. He will tell me everything will be okay. He will be lying, because it won't be okay, not right now - but eventually it will. And if he could take all that pain away, he would, in a heartbeat.
