my mac

(grant editing a wedding video he shot on his brother's computer)

I can't seem to leave grant alone when he's on the computer.

I lean on him, put my toes on the keyboard and screen and get impatient if he doesn't "surf" the web fast enough. On the flip side he is absolutely NOT allowed to bug me while I am the computer. no watching over my shoulder, NO touching the touching the cords, plugs or anything that may or may not hook to my computer. my computer is MINE and I am in charge.

I guess life really isn't fair sometimes. (but, grant, wouldn't you really miss my toes all over your screen if something were to happen to me?)

what do you get away with in your marriage that is unacceptable for your spouse to do? just curious....I have a few more... (sorry babe. I know I am a lot of work and I really do love you).

{shooting lovely tess's wedding today in newport beach. things I want to try to do in between shooting: see my babies, eat food with nikki, sit on the beach, possibly buy some new shoes, and stare at the sky on a patch of grass}.

cort is pretty much banned from eating crunchy/loud food in front of me, biting/picking his nails, surfing on the www in front of me (also too slow for me to handle), or changing the channel...all of which i AM permitted to do. ah, the joys of marriage.

grant is lucky. you are the best. xoxo

throw random tantrums, stomp my foot, leave the kids home with him to go shopping for hours... i should stop there. it's embarrassing when i write it out like that.

it is nice being eternally bound to someone, though, isn't it? three cheers for boys who make us feel safe and loved. :)

-puts her toes all over my windshield when her feet are up on the dash--you can never see out on that side of the car.
-leaves clothes/things in the "footpaths."
-I shouldn't even think about moving things around in the fridge.
And I wouldn't change a thing, lovey.

I LOVE that picture. I just love it.

I don't do anything that annoys my husband. Anything.

haaa. i am exactly the same with the computer. he doesn't move the mouse fast enough, when i'm hovering over his shoulder. and he doesn't click fast enough or click the things i want him to click on the screen. so yes, i am exactly the same. (and he's not allowed to hover over me. and reach over and take the mouse away. like i do : )

i get away with too much. i shouldn't even divulge a list like --what if you don't love me unconditionally : ) ??

aud, you know I do! the interweb accepts all of us unconditionally.

lori, can you write a post on your blog on how to be a perfect wife? I think grant could benefit from me making a few tiny adjustments (just a few, I am VERY close to perfection myself).
