happily ever after?

Naïve little me thought that marriage was as simple as tying the knot and living happily ever after. There’s a reason why they simply leave it at “and they lived happily ever after” in all those childhood fairy tales I filled my head with. Because if they actually carried on with the story, not a single little girl would grow up believing in “happily ever after” or even want to get married let alone spend upwards of $50,000 on their dream wedding. In reality, “happily ever after” isn’t as easy as finding your Prince Charming and marrying him. A whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears go into the seemingly so effortlessly obtained “happily ever after” that we read about in fairy tales. And I’ve found that most of the blood, sweat, and tears that I pour into achieving my “happily ever after” is spent in defining my husband and me as a new family separate from both of our birth families (in reality, just his family because they just simply refuse to let go while mine seems just a tad too happy to be rid of me). So here’s where you’ll find my struggles and triumphs in my quest to achieve “happily ever after.”

  1. have they no manners?So, obviously because of my ankle sprain, I didn't go to lab today. I instead spent the entire day stuck in bed trying not to let the pain get to me. It was quite boring though, so I ended up just sleeping most of the day. And then I find out that not-so-dear brother-in-law, who is in my lab for the summer (long story) had the nerve to take over my desk at the lab today because I wasn't there. Now what exactly made him think that that was in the least bit acceptable?! I mean, would he go so far as to invade and use as his own my major professor's office and desk if he were not in the office? I sure hope not. What's with kids these days, when even as the lowest of the low on the totem pole, they think they're entitled to whatever they want? He did not even ask nor did he even tell me. It was only thanks to his being sloppy and being on AIM all day that tipped me off to the fact that he had to have stolen my desk to have been able to do such a thing. My husband isn't being too understanding of the whole thing, probably because he's too busy defending his brother in his head yet again. And that's annoying me too. Why doesn't he see that it's a personal violation that his brother committed by not so much as even asking if he...
  2. mirror mirror (season 4, espisode 5)Bleh, this whole reality show thing is getting really old. CUDDY: I hired him. HOUSE: Well, I fired him. To infinity. Uh, uh, just in case I need them, where exactly will Dr. Foreman be keeping my balls? My God. Not everything is about you and your little job and your little world. This is about restoring order in the universe. Bling account? Med account didn't cover tattoo removal? Get a raise? Because then you're a whore. Or didn't you? Because then you're a stupid whore. FOREMAN: The mayo is fine. You can stay where you are. I'm a doctor. HOUSE: Mail order. I've seen the diploma. There was two Ns in university. Keep him in the isolation room so he doesn't pick up extreme bitch syndrome from one of the nurses. The goal in life is not to eliminate misery, it's to keep misery to the minimum. Someone's going to be miserable sometime--just accept it--that's how I stay so happy. That was just a courtesy flush.  I'm not actually done. And I know when my Vicodin isn't Vicodin.  Do you know when your birth control pills aren't birth control pills? Do  your own stupid biopsy. People don't learn, they don't change.  But you did.  You're a freak! DISCLAIMER: All copyrighted content is the property of its respective owners....
