Q&A on me and the hubby

I don't do a lot of MEME's (I don't really even know what that means) but Sarah did this one and I think it is fun. That's probably because Sarah is really, really funny. Her blog makes me laugh out loud pretty much every time I read it. So, here it is. Some Q&A on me and the hubby.

What are your middle names?
Eileen and Randolph

How long have you been together?
almost 18 years, married for almost 10

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
It's hard to remember. I knew of him but didn't really know him until his friend finally introduced us. He had a girlfriend at the time so I had to wait until he wised up and broke up with her before we actually started dating.

Who asked whom out?
He asked me out but I made the first call.

How old are each of you?
I am 33. Shaun is 33 but much closer to 34 than I am!

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Mine.

Which situation is hardest on you as a couple?
Probably his long work hours. Either that or him leaving the toilet seat up and me almost falling into the toilet in the middle of the night almost every night!

Did you go to the same school?
We went to the same high school but for college, he went to UC Riverside and I went to APU.

Are you from the same hometown?
I was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA. Shaun moved there when he was about 7 or 8 I think.

Who is smarter?
Uh, he is. He is probably one of the smartest people I have ever met. Sometimes I can't believe how much information is in that brain of his.

Who is more sensitive?
Me.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
We rarely go out to dinner but if we do it will be Italian or Mexican food.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
St. Lucia for our honeymoon

Who has the craziest exes?
Since we have been dating since we were 15, there are not many exes to speak of and it was so long ago that I would not know if they are crazy or not!

Who has the worst temper?
He does, hands down.

Who does the cooking?
I do most of the cooking now. Shaun did most of the cooking while he was in med. school and he is actually quite a good cook. He will cook if he has a day off.

Who is the neat-freak?
Ha-ha! Oh, sorry, I had to laugh for a second at the thought of Shaun being a neat-freak. I am a complete neat-freak and he is.... well, not. He's not messy by any means but let's just say that if I was gone for a week and came home, his house-cleaning would not be up to my standards.

Who is more stubborn?
He is.

Who hogs the bed?
He does. He moves constantly during the night and I'm always having to ask him to scoot over. We've had a Cal King and now have a regular King and neither are big enough! It's almost impossible for me to sleep in a queen or anything smaller with him.

Who wakes up earlier?
We both wake up at the same time because the alarm is on my side and Shaun usually needs a little nudge to wake up. I, for the most part, get up when he does and make his coffee and breakfast. I was not a morning person when we got married....now, I am.

Where was your first date?
We went to a powder-puff football game at BHS followed by dinner at McDonald's. We were young and I knew he didn't have much money so I requested that we go there for chicken nuggets. He takes me there sometimes on our dating anniversary.

Who is more jealous?
Neither one of us are.

How long did it take to get serious?
Well, we were as serious as it gets for two teenagers in high school. I think we started talking marriage in college but wanted to wait until we were done with college. Hence, our 8 year courtship.

Who eats more?
Shaun can eat about 5000 calories a day and never gain weight. It is sickening! He is always eating. We call him the human garbage disposal.

Who does the laundry?
I do. I'm not sure Shaun knows how to do laundry! :)

Who's better with the computer?
Hmmm...we're probably both good with computers but with different things.

Who drives when you are together?
Shaun...always. Apparently there is some rule that women can't drive men around. He is a much better driver with Julianne in the car so I prefer it that way. Otherwise, his driving terrifies me!

OK, your turn!

I just went to the Anita Renfroe show here, and she made us laugh about how for the first 15 years of her marriage, she spent it riding facing backwards in their car dealing with the kids. Now that she doesn't have to face backwards anymore, she has to witness her husband's horrific driving.

So, what does the house look like when you come home from all your trips w/o Shaun??

wow, you started dating when you were 15!! That's amazing! It must be so neat to have known each other so long and have so much history together.

so for some reason, I didn't know you came from here (Bakersfield)... I guess I have a lot to learn about you! :)
