marriage is {a necessary} evil

Posted on: August 30, 2009

i can’t say that i don’t have fantasies about being single; it appeals to me for many different reasons, not the least of which is that i wouldn’t have to compromise. ever. again. also, i could eat when and what and where i wanted, without analyzing every bite that goes into mine & henri’s mouth.  that’s always appealing, for those of us who don’t like to be stressed out.  and we would Most Certainly eat every meal on the bed.  Yeaaaaah…!  also, if i wanted to, say, organize the house and listen to music while henri plays in another room, i wouldn’t have to worry about someone sitting here W-A-T-C-H-I-N-G me like a H-A-W-K.

but–of course–the cons way outweigh the pros.   first of all, i’d have to get a {real} job, which would mean henri would be in {real} daycare, likely resulting in some {real} trouble for both of us. and i wouldn’t have the network of support that comes with a spouse.  i mean, what would life be without those weekends on the cape?  i’d just die!!!  or, imagine, if–when i accidentally took nighttime cold medicine instead of daytime–i couldn’t just sleep the day away because someone had to play video games, i mean, watch henri all day long.  that would s.u.c.k. 4 sure.

usually, i can appreciate the good, the bad, the ugly, the whatever…and accept marriage (aka McKnight) for what it is.  but today.  today, it is difficult.  perhaps i should go back on the magic vitamins.  seems like an easier solution than checking myself into a day program, or jumping off a bridge.  mostly because i hate hospitals. and water.  and being away from my h-man.
