I know Andy Griffith died, and that is super sad news. I loved him in the Andy Griffith Show. He was a class act. But the real news these days is that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are getting divorced. Color me shocked.
Who can forget when Tom declared his love for Katie on the Oprah show?
Five years ago, things seemed just awesome in my marriage, but for the extra insurance, I asked Chef to jump on the couch, declaring his love for me.
This was his response:
Personally, I think he should have just done it…we’d probably not be where we are now….
Unable to get Chef to jump on the couch, I decided to investigate Scientology to see if it was the way to go. It wasn’t. It is a religion based on a science fiction story. There was no way Chef or I could take it seriously. He told me he’d rather go Heaven’s Gate.
And Chef’s preference:
Chef decided he didn’t want us to look anything like Tom and Katie. I wonder why….
The happy news about all this is that while Tom and Katie have called it quits, Chef and I have not. We’re doing really good these last few days. I’m making no earth-shattering decisions, and I’m wary, but I think it is fair to say that the attitude around this place has changed, and I, for one, am thankful to the Lord for helping us both out.
Things have felt like this:
I’m really happy right now. I love my job… I love the work that I do. I love that I stay busier than I can barely stand, and I’m happy that Chef thinks he wants his marriage to stay in tact, and is willing to work on it. He’s done pretty great the last couple of days. I’m cautiously optimistic.
Hopefully, I will have time to write a serious post this weekend. I know you guys miss my angst!!!
Happy Fourth of July!!! Don’t blow off any fingers!!
