Marriage Makes You Soft...

... and not just physically (which seems to be true for me but not Adam...darn BC). Adam was gone for 4 days to hunt deer with his dad. I missed him...a lot. I don't remember being quite this lame but it seems I am turning to mush...at least regarding Adam the great. Boy he's cool. To keep myself occupied in his absence, I finally put stuff on our bare walls. It took forever and I'm not quite done but it looks much better. I'm stoked. I'll post some pictures (I need to take some first though). In lieu of his return, I shall do this survey thingy (stollen from Aliese's blog) and talk about the coolest guy ever.

Aw, you little softy. I would attempt to do this, except that I would probably just embarass myself in front of my hubby. You're a braver man than I!

Hmm...Do you realize that by Saturday it will have been a month since you last blogged? I just thought I'd point out the neglect. :)
