with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I have to admit that my husband and I do not watch a lot of TV, nor do we watch many movies. People often ask me how I manage to get all that I do done and I point to that fact. When the kids are in bed my husband will often putter in the shop and I will typity typity type to get my work (and play) all wrapped up.
Then there are nights where we 1) Need a break, 2) Need a break and 3) Need a break. Sometimes we curl up on the couch and see what our PVR has to offer. Sometimes we will go to a place called a theater and watch something called a movie. It’s neat.
In both situations we will often get into a (non-heated) debate about what we should be spending our time watching. I tend to lean toward romantic comedies (or straight-up comedies) and action films, while my husband is more into the action and adventure genre. Romantic/basic comedies are not his first choice, but lo! The ones I choose always make him laugh and not regret my choice. It is (usually) the same with the shows that he chooses. Shoot ‘em up! BANG-BANG-BANG!
While we lean towards different ends of the spectrum, we tend to enjoy the show that the other chooses. Usually. And if not, there is much fodder with which to tease each other about.
Do you and your other half share the same taste in shows?
