Marriage

Me - Why do all the pictures keep falling off the walls?

Him - Maybe because you're hanging them with packing tape?

Me - What else would I hang them with?

Him - Nails.

Me - Seriously?

We've been married for close to eighteen years and Greg still believes that at some point I'll start doing things the right way. It's nice to live with someone so hopeful. It's probably the reason I married him. I must have sensed he'd never give up on me.

Ha ha ha! Packing tape? Really? You crack me up!

Yes, it is the ultimate in lazy decorating and the funny thing is that some of the frames stick like glue and others fall continuously, but I still just keep hanging them back up with the tape. The interesting part is when I am laying in bed and can hear one crash onto the floor. I like to try and figure out which one just fell and most of the time I am right.

lol! Love the dialogue! You should do those more often.

That's funny! I have never heard of hanging pictures with packing tape. You are truly unique Ann Marie. Truly.

Terri, maybe I will do more of these. You know what else I am going to do from now on - leave comments on everyone's comments, that way it will look like I got lots of comments.

Tiffany, I know, it's funny isn't it? You know what else is funny -me leaving comments on everyone's comments just to make it look like I got a lot of comments. Oh, and I don't hang ALL of my pictures with tape, just the ones I really think can handle it, although it seems that really none of them can handle it. Currently there are four pictures waiting to go back on the wall. Now it's just become a battle of wills. I must beat the tape.

OMG! I got seven comments and only four of them are from me. I'm getting so popular!Terri, are you enjoying this? I was thinking of you when I did this whole comment thing.

Terri said...

Responding to each and every comment - - I like it! Except you're the only one who comments on my farmergirl blog (you too sometimes Julie) so we'll have to have our conversations over there. Then it'll look like I've got lots of comment. lol

Tiffany and Kirsten, get over there and join in the commenting conversation! lol

I want in on this...I love the tape idea! I have "putting nail holes in the walls" phobia! This could solve ALL of my problems, well, let's be real...maybe not ALL of them! ; )

Heidi L. said...

OH, P.S.
I think you SHOULD do more posts like this...especially coversations with Anthony...I love that kid!

ann marie said...

Heidi, next time I come over I'm bringing tape :)

Julie said...

I think I check your blog for updates just about everyday, and all of a sudden, I see a new post that's been up for almost a week! How did that happen?! Not to mention all this fun comment banter that's going on behind my back!

The funniest part of this whole thing to me is that you lay in bed trying to figure out which picture fell...I love that!!!

ann marie said...

Julie, I was getting worried!
