I am sitting here absolutely laughing my mid life butt off....
I checked the stats tab today and found the searches at the bottom, apparently someone
found me by searching rambling of an artsy fartsy mama... how hilarious is that!!
I don't know why that's made me laugh so much but it has.
Was it you, mother in law?????
Anydoodle.... what I wanted to blog about today is this? Should your marriage have
an annual review?? I mean, it is like running a partnership or business so shouldn't we
have checks and balances regularly to keep us on the right track and on the same page?
Make sure our goals are still the same and that we haven't deviated from the original plan?
I mean, if you settle into a routine and stick with it for years and years doesn't there
come a point where you become ineffective??
The rating could be the usual... O for outstanding.. E for exceeds expectations..M for
meets expectations and N for needs improvement and finally S for suck it.
Each category of your overall performance should be addressed ....
Quality of work, quantity of work, individual effectiveness, communication, judgement and
decision making, team building, initiative, ongoing skills improvement and dependability.
Of course the measurability of these categories in a marriage is completely left up to
the discretion of the management and will depend greatly upon the deliverance of
such things as flowers, candy and "other goodies" in the weeks prior to the review.
The outcome of this revolutionary new approach to a lifetime of harmonious cohabitation
is also dependent on some relevant outside factors.......
Acceptance of In Laws and friends... Annoying behavior in social settings....
or the refusal to even enter the social arena!!!
So ladies (and gents) lets do this, lets take the reigns, lets evaluate the performance of the
spouse, be honest, be ruthless and if it all ends in tears... don't blame me, y'all probably weren't
right for each other anyway just sayin'!!!!
I believe I will be first to take the plunge and present his gorgeousness with his
annual appraisal this weekend. I'll let you know how it all goes and whether I can
still be referred to as Mrs. following this summit meeting.
Now.... get out there and lets do it!!!!
