The Paul To My Julia

Day #3. The blog pressure has returned. What the heck am I going to write about today? I am starting to have a new-found respect for you bloggers out there who write daily posts and are insightful, witty, humorous, thought-provoking, etc.

So, here on Day #3, I will write about CT.  CT is the love of my life. I met CT at age 40 (he was 41), both of us single, never been married and neither of us had kids. We got engaged a couple of months after dating, and were married 11 months later. We will be married five years this November. Anyway, he is truly the best guy with the best heart. (Although I will tell you there are a few things he does that drive me crazy, like yesterday morning - he walked over an entire pile of bed sheets that were sitting at the top of the stairs waiting to be brought down to the laundry room for washing – just because he was finished taking his shower and REALLY REALLY REALLY needed to get to the TV to see what shows he had recorded that he just needed to watch that very minute! So he jumped over the pile to get to the TV.  And when I stood in front of the bed sheets still laying at the top of the stairs and yelled out to him, “YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!” He cluelessly replied, “What?” And then we both just laughed.)

Ok, so I’ve been under the weather these last two days, and truly not in the mood to do anything – no errands, no shopping, no cleaning, no cooking, no yard work, no going out for dinner. Nothing. So, last night, as we became bored with TV, I said to CT, “Just grab any movie from the stash for us to watch.” I was prepared for a STAR WARS, or JAMES BOND, or STAR TREK, or a RAMBO kinda movie (his favorites).  CT then did the most amazing thing. He pulled out a movie and said, “Let’s watch this.” It was not a CT-kinda movie. Rather, it was one of my favorites – “Julie & Julia.” My heart just filled with happiness, because while I knew that CT would rather sit with the TV OFF than to watch a chick-flick, he would do anything to make me feel better. And, after he started the movie, he sat and actually watched the entire movie with me.

 Yes, CT is the Paul to my Julia.  And yes, I felt better.

So, that is my introduction to CT.
