your man

Just thought I’d try to set a record for xanga posts in one day. Three already, and there are still 90 minutes left before midnight. Who knows what could happen?

Hey, it’s Friday night, and I don’t have a date. What can I say?

Your Man…

1. Who is your man? Gabriel Anson
2. How long have you been together? We met in June of 1996 and started dating two months later.
3. How long did you date? We dated for 11 months before we got engaged.
4. How old is your man? 30
5. Who eats more? Definitely Gabe. He’s got me beat by at least three French fries.
6. Who said “I love you” first? Mmm…not sure. Gabe doesn’t remember either. It was probably him.
7. Who is taller? He’s about five inches taller than me. It’s perfect.
8. Who sings better? Oh, my. I’ve never actually heard him sing. So, me.
9. Who is smarter? Not a fair question. Who has more common sense? Gabe. Who knows more about technology (and everything else)? Gabe. Who would do better on a standardized test? Me.
10. Whose temper is worse? This one might be a toss-up. Big weakness for both of us.
11. Who does the laundry? Yours truly.
12. Who takes out the garbage? His truly. (except for one Wednesday a month or so when I get a phone call seconds after he leaves for work—”Uh, I just noticed that everybody else’s trash cans are on the curb… Could you maybe…?”)
13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Me. Closer to the kiddos.
14. Who pays the bills? Me. With his money.
15. Who is better with the computer? Ha! Now that’s a dumb question. That’s like asking, “Who’s better at birthing babies?” Except that the answers are different.
16. Who mows the lawn? Gabey baby.
17. Who cooks dinner? Me. Or he brings it home.
18. Who drives when you are together? Gabe. Always.
19. Who pays when you go out? Mmm…probably Gabe most often.
20. Who is most stubborn? Wow—he would definitely say me. But he’s got a little streak in him as well.
21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Neither. Okay, we’re both getting better at it…
22. Whose parents do you see the most? I’d say it’s pretty even steven.
23. Who kissed who first? Cedar Point. On the train. We both leaned in…
24. Who asked who out? He asked me.
25. Who proposed? Gabe did. It was beautiful. The first time I think I’ve ever been surprised in my life.
26. Who is more sensitive? Me! It doesn’t take much to hurt my feelings.
27. Who has more friends? Me! (thanks to xanga)
28. Who has more siblings? Me! We each have a younger brother, but I also have 2 younger sisters.
29. Who wears the pants in the family? Gabe.

I love you, Gabe!

Can’t wait to hear about your men!

    Hey, I think I’ll have one left and if you want you can make us one for a christmas gift(if you really wanted!) I know how time consuming they are but if you had one of all your kids? i’d looove to have a copy if that’s already a copy you’ve made, and you wouldn’t have to put together another one. I will know for sure later today but it has to be finished before tomorrow. They expire by 9/30. I have 3 left and my sister has 2 more for sure. Call Tug or I later and if she doesn’t need it, I’ll give you my log in info because i’ve already added every coupon to my account. you would just have to share a project if it was one that was already made. The shipping info is on there too. It’ll automatically take off the shipping.

    Btw: I agree that the lady who “read” your book probably didn’t read the whole thing at all.

    ^I was going to ask BE the same question…I was up because my kids were all up by 6:30. But seriously, commenting at that time of a SATURDAY with no kids??? She’s just asking to be taunted!

    i woke up at 7:00 and just wasn’t tired anymore. it felt like a waste to just lay in bed, so i figured i might as well get this day started! i’m one of those irritating morning people.

    how fabulous!  i will fill it out next week, b/c i’m lacking the brains to think of posting material on my own–and the kids aren’t helping me out any either. 

    b.e. why are you up so early?!?

    I feel like I got to be a fly on the wall in your relationship for a brief moment. Thanks for sharing. I will use this as my survey of the week next week.

    Happy Saturday to you!
