Archive for the ‘No One Told Me!’ Category

There are a million things that I wish that someone would have told me before I got married, and many more I am yet to learn, but I thought that I would keep a tag here on the blog full of them for all the poor unsuspecting souls that aren’t married yet, and aren’t going to know what hit them when they finally do tie the knot. Some are funny, some are sad, some are silly, and there may be some I hope my mom doesn’t read, but I promise they are all things that one of us have thought at some time ‘why didn’t someone tell me about that?’

I guess I share these to poke fun at myself for having so many unrealistic expectations, for thinking that marriage would be like the ones that I saw on TV, or the ones that I read about, or the ones that I had seen modeled before me growing up. There can be no comparing, because every marriage is two different people trying to make it work as one. Mine won’t be like anyone elses because no one else is quite like me, and there is certainly none like my Michael.  So laugh as you start to read the things that have caught us by surprise, add your own in the comments, and just remember that your marriage is uniquely yours!

For starters, I give you this (the first one Michael mentioned)

2.  Who the heck knew that there was football on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday?
