Countdown...

Well I was reading another blog this morning and I came across this! For those of you who haven't read the Twilight series, I would highly recommend them.

I am SO looking forward to the movie! November 21st I WILL be at the movies even if I have to drag Batman kicking and screaming! I will be making a paper chain and counting down the days until the premiere! (does that make me a freak?) I can't wait!

Not too much else going on. We have been super busy (we meaning mainly me). Last week I had cheer 4 days instead of the normal 2 and again this week! It's been really crazy, but that is what happens I guess when they all freak out about an upcoming routine (Next Friday is Midnight Madness- which kicks off the basketball seaon for our little school) It's been, well... interesting to say the least. Oh the drama that you deal with when you get 8 girls together multiple times a week! Eek! It will be nice once it's done and over, but then Homecoming is 2 weeks after that so there will be no rest for the weary :( Such is life as a cheer coach I guess...

We've been having some issues, Batman and I, regarding life, TTC, marriage, etc. We just haven't been on the same page and it has really made us distant and argumentative with each other. Other than making love, there has been little we have had in common over the last few months. It has come to blows a couple of times in the last week or so (see Breakdown 1-50) but Tuesday for some reason, things escalated even more, over stupid shit (what else is new). I wasn't an emotional basketcase this time though. And we talked. And talked. And talked. And then we went to bed, got up, went to work, came home and talked some more. It is amazing what happens when you talk, and really communicate without the bull shit, to your spouse. I think Thursday was the first day in a long time that I woke up Happyly Married. It had come to a point of tolerance I think. Was I okay being married? Sure, but it felt like we just weren't in the same place. Well, we weren't in the same place. I think it will take time to *really* be on the same page, but at least now we are reading the same book. And it's been an amazing couple of days (barring my being horribly sick yesterday). I realize this is a constant work in progress, but it's nice knowing that we are both working at it.

Good to know that things are better between you and Batman :). Talking really helps but I think most marriages have a few ups and downs. Hope things get better and better :)

All marriages have their ups and downs..sometimes all you need is a little heart to heart and openess. I'm glad things are progressing for you guys :)
