Oh, the shame

How many of my friends with blogs and websites and photosites have gotten a simple email from me, saying, "update your site"?


All of them.


So, the shame, THE SHAME, to finally get my first "update your blog" message.


The past week has been a rollercoaster. Lots to do, lots to think about, not enough sleep, not enough time. We had enrolled in a marriage preparation course, and were not looking forward to it (because, really, who would?). Unlike every other couple in the course, however, we didn't HAVE to be there (it's a requirement if you're being married in the Catholic church), so maybe that helped a bit. Also, there were lots of snacks.


Either way, it wasn't what we had expected, at all. We have realized that we haven't discussed money, joint accounts, wills, insurance, or anything like that, and there were a few neat communication-y games that I think we did quite well at.


I'm apparently a squirrel, and Chris is a dog. A bit of pop psychology, not really sure what to do with that! All in all, there were no real tools, but we came away feeling good about our relationship, and how we handle things, and confident that the people beside us are going to break up, not us.


The divorce rate is up to 55%, which means that half of the room was doomed.


Bummer.
