I finally accept it. After almost 9 months of trying to deny it I cannot any longer ... D and I have a mixed marriage. You've seen photos of us and are probably confused. But it's true I tell you. So how is it a mixed marriage? Simple. D likes skim milk whereas I like 1%.
Ok so maybe I used a bit of dramatic flair. But it is still true! For 9 months I have purchased skim milk and allowed my own milk consumption to go by the wayside. I figured since I rarely drink milk and on the rare occasions I have cereal I can stand skim milk, it made more sense to allow D his preference.
But no more. I think I am slowly starting to feel the effects of reduced milk consumption. I used to love drinking milk (it is a great with pretzels ... trust me!). And have missed it. So on Sunday when I went grocery shopping I did what I told D I would do...I purchased a small thing of 1% milk for myself (small since I doubt I'd go through an entire gallon before it went bad!).
And oh how I have enjoyed it. There are other non-traditional ways in which D and I are a mixed marriage. I'll write more about those later. But for now ... I am going to go get a glass of 1% milk!
