Weekly Homework Assignment

It's time once again for Mama Kat's Weekly Homework Assignment! This week, I chose the following prompt: What did you compromise when you married? Ooh, this could be the kiss of death here, right?

To be honest, I don't really think I compromised too much. Well, there are two areas I had to compromise that I can think of. The first is sports - I love to watch sports ... and yes, I still do watch a lot of sports. BUT, when it comes to attending sports games, I don't do it nearly as much anymore. That's ok for the most part - I really don't like going to pro football games - I'd rather watch them on TV. I've been pretty much priced out of hockey. Really, the only sport I'd like to watch live more is baseball. The wife really doesn't enjoy it, so I don't go much. I'd like to go more with friends, and I guess I could, but I don't for some reason.

I also LOVE stand up comedy. I love watching it. I love listening to it. I love talking to friends about it. However, the wife isn't a fan. We've gone to one stand-up show, and I don't think she had a good time. When I have it on TV, she loses interest. If I want to listen to it on my Slacker (look it up), she objects. It's not a huge deal, but still.

I guess if those are really the only concessions I've had to make, that's not too bad, is it? My wife probably has had to make more concessions, especially with my finickey eating habits.

"I'm so busy at work, I don't even have time to compromise!"

For everyone else's benefit: that's a real quote, except the last word was different, hopefully something he's done less of since his wedding.

I......didn't compromise ANYTHING. You either take Heff, or leave him, as we all know.

Seriously, let me know if you ever want to watch the Phils, or a minor league team, or road trip to see the O's or Natinals. I'm usually up for a game.

That isn't bad at all. One of the things I gave up (I guess you would call it that) is live music. I LOVE it. Way more than the radio, but my husband doesn't so I just skip. Sometimes I'll find a friend to go with, but it is easier to just ignore it.

Why are hockey games so expensive? Do you think if they were more reasonably priced more people would go?

Comedy shows are my favorite. I just hate when they talk too raunchy.

Have a pretty, chilly day : )

I never understood why hockey games are so expensive either. Hope you and yours get to enjoy some baseball this summer.

They say marriage you have to be willing to give up things. I look at it as gaining things. Every aspect to me was a gain. :)
