it was a dark and stormy night...

Well, a dark and stormy mid-morning. The overcast, heavy-hearted weather seems almost fitting for the first anniversary of my "work mommy" Jan's father's passing. Very sad. She's home today... taking care of a million items that have popped up, but I have flowers waiting for her return tomorrow. Something to hopefully brighten her day just a little.

Something completely unrelated? I stole a meme from Dooce. Its different, and fun... and I thought a fitting one to do with how much I've been appreciating Trav lately. His willingness to sacrifice his mornings for my sleep, just how great he is. A surprise dinner on Tuesday night! In anycase, here is the meme on significant others.

What are your middle names?
Mine is Katiegh, his is James.

How long have you been together?
8 years, 4 months. Married for 2 years, 4 months.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
One day. We met at a party on Oct. 12th... he kissed me goodnight and asked me to come back the next day. I did and we've been together ever since.

Who asked whom out?
He asked me.

How old are each of you?
I'm 26, he's 28.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Mine, definitely. Ethan is only 1.5 hours away and still at home, so I see him about every 6-8 weeks. Trav's brothers are in Pittsburgh and Cleaveland, so we only get to see them once or twice a year, if that.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Hmm... I'm not sure. We had different relaxation styles which caused a little bit of friction in the past, and money right now is a bit concerning. But really, I can't think of one situation that is super hard.

Did you go to the same school?
We both graduated from Lehigh University, two years apart.

Are you from the same home town?
No. I'm from a tiny, country area in eastern PA (Schnecksville) and he's from a big city in western PA (Pittsburgh).

Who is smarter?
I'm not sure... I think we are smart in different ways.

Who is the most sensitive?
Lol, probably me.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
The Pearl... a place that serves both yummy Chinese dishes and lovely, fresh sushi... just a 10 minute ride from our house. It's always near the top of our list.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?

Who has the craziest exes?
Probably him.

Who has the worst temper?
He does... though it is much, much better then when we first moved in together. I'm just a much more "glass half full" person.

Who does the cooking?
We take turns! We actually both really enjoy cooking, and are both pretty damn good at it. He handles the red meat normally, while I'm great at whipping up pasta and chicken dishes. I think he stays more in a certain comfort zone while I experiment and want to try new things... but he might be more consistant in his outcomes. Lol.

Who is the neat-freak?
Err... definitely him.

Who is more stubborn?
We can both be stubborn about certain things... but neither of us tends to be unweilding.

Who hogs the bed?
Ohh, definitely him!! It's less my side and his side, more his side and my edge. Lol.

Who wakes up earlier?
He does. He's always preferred to be very early to work, rather then late or even on time... so he's out the door before I'm even up. And he has the ability to fall back asleep after getting up in the early morning... while once I'm up, I'm up. So this has all worked out with the dog and was less of an adjustment then it might have been.

Where was your first date?
We never really had dates. We hung out and spent time together... but it was watching movies, hanging out with friends, partying (it was college after all). We didn't really do the official, lets go to dinner and a movie thing.

Who is more jealous?
Neither of us are really jealous people.

How long did it take to get serious?
We were always serious. We were exclusively together from the start and knew at 6 months that we wanted to marry each other one day.

Who eats more?
Lol... me most of the time. He says that I'm going to make him fat because he often ends up eating just because I'm eating... which is all the time.

Who does the laundry?
We both do.

Who's better with the computer?
We're both very computer literate. He's better with excel, I'm maybe better with photo editing stuff.

Who drives when you are together?
He does more often, but not all the time. Whoever is in the mood to... or not not wanting to. Thankfully he's not one of those guys who has to be the driver, because I do really enjoy driving. Thankfully also, he doesn't mind doing the city driving.. which I hate!

Your turn!! Let me know if you do this!
And now, off to work.
