Mix Mix

It's the end of the month and I can't believe we only have 5 months to go before Christmas. Eeeeek! I am pretty excited because it will be Arrow's first Christmas and I won't be pregnant over the holidays. I do not enjoy being pregnant during the holidays-- because I always was with my 3 pregnancies.

We plan to have Arrow's dedication in December to celebrate it together with our 6th year wedding anniversary. A lot of people have told me about the 7 year itch. Who believes in that? That if a couple survives 7 years of being together, then the following years won't be as bad anymore and that they will most likely not end up separating.

And since we are on the topic of relationships anyway, I want to ask you about your opinion regarding having secrets. Do you share everything with your husband? Or do you keep certain things from him?

And when you know something about someone close to you but that someone close to you thinks you don't know about that something, do you tell that someone close to you that you know? So that she stops pretending or do you just let it be?

I do not tell my husband everything. The things I keep from him do not have much if anything to do with him (i.e. Friend's confession or problem, something between me and the kids, that type of thing.)

If a friend has asked me to keep a secret, I do. I may encourage her to tell, but ultimately I leave that to the person to decide for herself.

Sorry, I read that last part wrong. I think I would let the person go on pretending, depending on what the thing is. If she's hurting herself or someone else, then I'd tell her I knew so I could help her stop.

The seven-year itch? I think it's fiction...I hardly noticed that it passed by and guess what? We're turning 12 years in October. hehehe.

I think it's also in making sure that your partner knows, as often as you can, how much you love and appreciate them. And no matter how hard it may seem...tell him if he hurt you...don't keep him guessing that way everything is crystal clear. :) God bless!
