Wow - I've been getting better and better with the updates. I just have a quick post for today. I stumbled upon this fun marriage quiz on Dooce and I thought I'd fill it out on here. Feel free to steal it and post it on your blog - leave me a comment if you do so I can head over and read it!
What are your middle names?My middle name is Anne with an "e" and D's full name is Joseph Phillipe Patrick Denis so I'm not sure if his middle name is considered "Joseph Phillipe Patrick" or "Phillipe Patrick Denis" - funny tidbit - I am usually great with names but for some reason I ALWAYS stumble on his full name - there are so many to remember and I can never remember if the Phillipe comes before the Patrick!
How long have you been together? We've been together six years and married for three.
How long did you know each other before you started dating? We started talking online in early September 2001 and our first date was October 19.
Who asked whom out? It was basically a mutual thing. I FOUND him on the dating site and we kept trying to set up a date but one of us was always busy.
How old are each of you? I'm 33, and he's 34.
Whose siblings do you see the most? Denis is an only child and my sister lives in Winnipeg so she wins by default but we don't see her very often either.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple? I can't say we really have any big ones. Maybe money although now that we've created a budget it has elminated a lot of stress. I think our miscarriage was the hardest thing to get through as a couple but ultimately it brought us closer together. It was a tough time in our lives...
Did you go to the same school? Not even close. Denis went to a French Catholic high school and I went to an all-girls catholic school. I'm glad we didn't go to the same school b/c that would make him a girl!!!
Are you from the same home town? Not even close. He grew up in the National Capital Region (Ottawa, Constance Bay, Quebec side) and I grew up in Winnipeg.
Who is smarter? I think overall he's much smarter. He can learn to do pretty much ANYTHING whether it be electronics or plumbing or woodworking or even sewing. He's VERY handy. I think we are both smarter in different ways. I'm smarter when it comes to language and culture I'd say. It just goes to show you that education isn't everything! I have two university degrees and he's still smarter!
Who is the most sensitive? Yikes - this is a tough question. We're both pretty sensitive in our own ways.
Where do you eat out most as a couple? We have a few favourites - Moxies, Mexicala Rosas, the Works
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple? Spain
Who has the worst temper? Me -- hands down. But even I'm not the crazy shouting throwing type.
Who does the cooking? We both do. Depending on who is home from work first. Some nights we cook together. I believe in an equal opportunity household. We have equal opportunity to get the work done!!!
Who is the neat-freak? That would be me. hands down.
Who is more stubborn? See previous question!!!
Who hogs the bed? I hog the physical space on the bed - I'm a bit of a crazy sleeper. He definitely hogs to "noise space" in the bed.
Who wakes up earlier? Lately it's been D because he's been working the early shift. On the weekends I'm generally the first one up.
Where was your first date? It was at O'Connor's in Kanata. We played pool and had a few drinks.
Who is more jealous? I'm a Scorpio...'nuf said!
How long did it take to get serious? Probably about an hour or two into our first date! I pretty much never left D's house after our second date. We both knew it was right immediately.
Who eats more? I would say D.
Who does the laundry? Once again - equal opportunity household. We both do.
Who's better with the computer? Considering D works in high tech, he is, hands down.
Who drives when you are together? D does. I have a very long commute to work and right now I'm totally sick of driving so I love when he drives.
Well. I think it's time for bed for me. I just got home from Katie's place. I spent the evening with her and her sweet little girls and we had such a wicked time!
Hopefully tomorrow is creativity day!!!
