Is this just me?

I still feel lucky to wake up to my wife every morning- even with all of the shit and hurt- she's still my favourite person. I still love her incredible mind and she is still the most beautiful girl in the world.

This morning I woke up to:

Her: "You know how we can see 3 colours and our spectrum is based on these 3... A mantis shrimp can see 8- 8 colours! Imagine that"
Me: "blows my mind!"
Her: "try and think of a new colour"
Me: "aarrrgghhh" haha

Now- who else could do this? Who else would think of those words to wake up to. She has problems and she acted badly but she's trying to resolve it and SHE isn't bad just as I'm not perfect. I feel like we're lucky to have each other. Even with all the shit and sometimes it hurts so much but- I'm still lucky.

Is it just me?

Your post made me smile. I think it's important to treasure those moments. I'm glad to hear she is working on R, too.

aw, I want to cry tears of happiness for you two...YES, I feel the same feelings for WH.

You are an amazing human being. The strength it takes to forgive and take the high road is A LOT harder than bailing with hate in one's heart. You're truly remarkable. She's very lucky to have you!!!

She is lucky to have you

(((hugs)))

(typing your name still makes me laugh)

aww thats so sweet. i wish someday I will have that feeling again and not immediately snuff it out before I relish it because I am angry with WH.

I can understand why you want to stick around....

No one's perfect and I wish I wasn't on this road- I wish there'd been another way BUT I can't do anything about that now and neither can she. Sometimes I feel terrible, sometimes I'm happy but even with all of that- she is awesome.

Conflicted- if my wife thinks I'm thinking about it she just blurts something weird out or gushes with love- she just does something to distract me and it helps 99% of the time.

I love the quote "success is not final, failure is not fatal; it's the strength to continue that counts".

Sisoon- I always say she has the ability to say things I've never thought about and to me that's an amazing quality. I figure- no matter what's happened, that hasn't changed. She's still perfectly weird!!

Yeah thanks Karma -
Anyway we have to stay together- I have her portrait on my arm and tattoo removal is supposedly very painful

I hope she let you wake up a bit first

But yeah, I relish waking up with FWH every morning too. And HE appreciates the fact he still gets to wake up with me too. He tells me often enough

Your post is very encouraging. Gives me hope. Thank you for sharing.

idiot85 posted 4/30/2013 07:07 AM

I just wanted to add... I had a bad couple of days Sunday/Monday but that feeling never left me and this morning was full of smiles and she is awesome!!!

Karma- with the tattoo we were joking about it the other day- I'd just add a beard and monobrow- black teeth, hairy armpits/legs (it's a pin-up style). I'd keep the slogan "my world, my life, my beautiful wife"- people would be like 'poor chap'. ha

I find it so encouraging reading nice things. I can relate to the sad ones which comfort me- in a 'I'm not the only one' way and get great advice but I feel so reassured by the nice stories.

I think infidelity is an ocean and it's easy to get lost in it.

Oh and this morning I woke to:

Her (smiling): "are you the same person you were when I started saying this sentence to you?"
Me: "aarrrgghhh" haha

Socrates, Plato, Aristotle... They have nothing on my wife!!

I am so happy for you today. The good moments are important, they are the fuel that sustains you through the "down swings."

Burning that fuel myself right now.

idiot85 posted 4/30/2013 09:37 AM

I genuinely felt like shit yesterday and had all kinds of thoughts and feelings then today- waking up to that weird question, the sunshine and hearing our kids waking up/giggling- I don't know, I just feel...I feel alright- good in fact!

Today I feel like- what's done is done- I've decided to truly R and she's doing the best she can so I can't be angry for today- if you get me? Today is fine.

Let's see what happens tomorrow!!!

Cheers numb and here have some fuel gggrrrrraaaarrrggghhhh That's the sound of fuel being thrown at you!!!

Edited to say- thrown TO you, not AT you.

I don't know about you but in these shitty times smiling's important so I hope I've raised one for you.
