One thing that I'm trying to do is for when Laura comes home, I want the house to feel cozy and welcoming. This time of year that means the christmas lights are on (yes, I know that it's January), supper is made or cooking away, the fire is on, the house is a comfortable temp, and I've made at least an half-assed attempt at tidying up. Part of that means that I also try and make supper interesting: either fun dishes, comfort food, or new dishes displayed nicely.
Yes, I know that makes me sound like a house wife. I get that.
But it's effort. I think that I've got to keep on trying so things don't get boring and fall apart. Laura mentioned to me that one of her classmates is breaking up with her husband after like 2 years and that just made me really sad. I would think that when people are together - at the start at least - they think that things will always work out. I have no idea how things break down like that and I have no intention of finding out. If that means making food that looks good, I'm okay with that.Posted by jim at January 16, 2009 03:34 PM
