Still Searching

Monday, August 06, 2007

For the last three hundred and sixty five days I have been trying to figure out where my Seven Year Itch is.

I still have about an hour left to locate it and put it to use.. but what exactly am I looking for?

Is it a disease?
Uncomfortable woolen socks?
Is it by any chance related to yeast and my personal amusement park?

Some people have told me that the seventh year you are married, you start to wonder if this is the person you really want to spend the rest of your life with.

Well bully for them. I did that the first year I was married. Back when all my baby did was scream. Well thats not true. Sometimes my baby would scream and poop. When I could not figure out a way to leave the baby and keep the man, I decided to stick around. (Turns out they cry way less when you feed them!)

During the past year there were definitely times I got itchy. But. Was that the Seven Year Itch?

And now that year seven is gone, Did I just lose all chance to experience it? Does it come around every seven years or just the once? Can I order it off of eBay? Most importantly, can I return it if I am unsatisfied? (I already checked; there is no return address on the kids.)

In any case.

Today is our eighth wedding anniversary.
(pee ess: No I'm not passed out. My eyes are shut in fear. I'm NOT a fan of heights!)

Congratulations! I think that it doesn't necessarily have to be the seventh year. But it also doesn't necessarily have to happen at all. Just remember that marriage is a lot of work and if you stop working at it, it will fall apart. It is more important than your children because without each other, it's more difficult to be good parents.

Whoo-hoo! Congrats on number 8!!!

I think the seven year itch is something about not washing well enough... I don't know for sure. ;)

Turns out they cry way less when you feed them! ... that's true for both man and baby.

Seven year itch... mmmm, dare I say it...? Yes I dare.... Well from what I know of you so far, the man that helps you scratch such an itch will be a lucky man indeed.

Awwww. Actually, that itch seems to happen when the man turns 40... buys some new sports car and starts acting like all the 18 year old girls really do want to go out with him again... causing his wife to use the old Nair-while-asleep strategy. The itch happens as the hair grows back. It has an eeuw-you-scratch-AND-you're-old-so-why-would-I-flirt-with-YOU effect on the 18 year olds.

But HEY... congratulations, even if you do make me feel terribly old for our 21 years. You guys are cute.

Happy Anniversary!

I'll tell you why you haven't felt the itch--because I'm not up there, baby!

Congratulations! I think many people in happy relationships still experience it and it can be very difficult on a marriage. Hopefully you guys won't have any problem until he has his mid-life crisis!

I don't know. We're only looking at six and he's didn't marry me till after the mid-life thing. Maybe we skipped it?

Our seven year itch always had to do with wanting to make babies. :)

Luckily, we had a grandchild for our 21st. :)

Congratulations to JJ and BPR on eight years together!
I have had seven year scratches down my back. They are not fun.

Congrats you two! That is such a cute pic.

And S., I am sorry about the post today. I forgot about your own toothly journey. And you are right...I am better off with what I have. Even if they do hurt.

Shelli Thanks Hon. We do work at it, becuase we have a lot of differing views. However. it seems that the longer we are together, the more similar we start to think, and thats scary!

Sheila see! my nightly bath has betrayed me again! first dry skin, now no itch!

I just can't win, can i?

Angry well.. he is a very good back scratcher. Im sure thats what you meant, right (lol)

Fracas Oh, i am NOT looking forward to his mid life crisis. Wait. Do girls get to have them too?

Mr.Fab well i have been scratching that particular itch with coffee!

Avitable as long as he gets s shiny new RED sports car during his mid-life, I'm sure it will all be ok.

Maryilyn you will have to pay attention during year seven. Just in case!

Not a Granny you know I love your singing! (and that fab masturbates to it...he told me)

Finn Thanks !

Ajooja heh. Thats funny. It made me LOL

Sans Honey. If the back scratches hurt, she is doing it all wrong!

Angel Thanks hon!

One Tall Momma Thanks! as for the teeth. For me, scary as it is, it is the right choice for me. Im just a big baby! gah! its only 2 weeks away!
hide me!

Congratulations! And I love that your husband is tall enough that at shoulder level you can be afraid of the height. =)

OMG!!! My 12 year anniversary was on 8/5! Happy ANNIVERSARY!!!

I didn't find the itch either. Does it come back at 14 years, you think?
