#000000;">Getting to Know my Coach!  I found this survey on Jen’s blog and thought it looked kind of fun (not to mention a way to get my man involved). Originally, it was posted as “who is my husband”….but since we are not married (common law we are), I changed it slightly to fit us….  Feel free to copy and paste, and fill out your own survey on your blog.  Leave me a comment, I’d love to come and visit!

#000000;">

#000000;">

#000000;">

#000000;">1. Who is your man?
~Coach is my man. He is 54 years old and loves his work. He coaches high school football…and in Texas that is a big deal! He is a varsity d-line coach, JV assistant head coach, and an assistant soccer coach. He teaches special ed kids to boot! He is a world champion power-lifter too… With all of this, there isn’t much spare time, but when there is he enjoys working with and riding his horse, welding, and of course working on his honey-do’s!

#000000;">

#000000;">2. How long have you been together?
~We’ve been living together for 2 years. We have known each other and been friends for about 15 years. We met while our daughters were playing softball together. I knew right away that this man was the one for me…but circumstances (his & mine) prevented me from pursuing him. Eventually it all worked out and he saw that I was the right one for him! (only took a little prodding from me)

#000000;">

#000000;">3. How long dated?
~See the above answer….  I don’t know that we really dated….when he was getting divorced we got together…we just kind of fell into a romance and it never stopped…lucky for me!

#000000;">

#000000;">4. How old is your man? ~He is 54 years young!
#000000;">

#000000;">5. Who eats more?
#000000;">~Probably me…. he eats all healthy – salad, fruit, protein bars…occassionally I twist his arm and we have pizza or mexican food…sometimes even Whataburger!
#000000;">

#000000;">6. Who said “I love you” first?
~I did, he is not big on vocalizing it but he shows me every day in many, many ways

#000000;">

#000000;">11. Who does the laundry?
~We do it together much of the time. But during the school year, he does most of it. He takes it to the school and washes in the training room. It’s free….we don’t have a washer & dryer in our little RV so we have to use the laundry room…. free is much better!  He washes, he folds, but he doesn’t put away…. I can live with that
