I know it’s late but there are some things on my heart I needed to say so that you don’t ever forget.
These things are as important as life and serious as death.
Do you remember a few weeks back when you were walking down the hall in those home-only yoga pants carrying a basket of laundry on one hip and dragging a basket of toys with the other hand? You had your head down when turning the corner and almost ran into a handsome stranger coming down the hallway.
You barely looked at each other because he was late for work.
But…there was something familiar about this man.
After he left, you remembered where you met him sixteen years ago. He fell straight-up in love with you at first sight after four months of you giving him the back-and-forth because you had never met a gentleman before and you were nervous.
It’s just that between work, dishes, three little humans you share and falling asleep on the couch sitting up at 8:00 every night …you’d both been on autopilot for awhile.
So you asked him on a date.
And he was so grateful for you to set it up and take care of the details. Because he gets busy with work sometimes and the whole weight of the world thing?
And even though the days of you two giggly begging the other one to hang up first are frequently interrupted by actual hanging up, there is something no one talks about much:
Dating the boyfriend you’re married to is pretty darn hot.
It’s harder because of complicated loan interests and those aforementioned small humans living with you…
But it’s so much better than those days of mixed tapes and Polo baths.
I just wanted to remind you of a few things that will help you keep strangers out of your home:
Alright, sister. That’s all for now.
Except one thing?
Get some new yoga pants.
