I've been found out.
I got my first disapproving look from my dear husband. Caught with my hand in the cookie jar. Me, the more "responsible" one of us. The charge? Late library books. I got a late notice, that usually doesn't happen, usually the are just a few days late and I pay my pittance. So I "support" the library, you know what I mean? This time they were a over a month late, I checked them out before the wedding, read two of them during the honeymoon, and was working on a third. So when I got the notice, I hated to part with them, yet was too busy to try to rush through them in a couple of days. So what do I do? I drop them in the box and run (actually speed off). Add this to the Netflix movies that I have had since before the wedding and a pattern starts to emerge...
So one afternoon this week, I was telling my husband about my day and mention I dropped off my library books, but didn't go into to pay the fine. You would think I burned a book by his reaction! I just looked at him and said What? What's the problem? I'll pay it when I go and have more time to actually check books out! At least I GO to the library! He's been reading the same books since I met him! Granted they are good books with educational information and not fluffy chick lit, but still... he just shook his head..
I get a small kick out of this for some odd reason...

That happens to me all the time, I've likely bought half of the books on the library's shelves with the amount I've spent in overdue fees!

I think it has something to do with just getting married. I just recently got married too and I have never been late on a bill all of sudden I was late once and I am having a chuz of a time remembering about them. I think its because I just want my wife to do it instead but I am not sure.

This used to happen to me, so much so that my fines became too much!! LOL!!

It's called marriage brain, the man takes 1/4 of your brain when you get married,add kids and you loose another 1/4...

Love your blog!!

Uh oh. If marriage causes it, then I'm done for. I didn't have much to start with, everything I do is on my calendar, though lately I've been forgetting to put it on there too! I just love showing up to appointments a day early, or a week early...
