So the priest was right

Mike and I got married over 17 years ago. I still remember the message the priest, Fr. T, gave us in his homily. He said that the key to a successful marriage is "communication, communication, communication."

Well, he said a lot more than that, but it all boiled down to "communication, communication, communication," which he repeated several times. Good strategy because I still remember it after all these years. Remembering it and practicing it, however, are two very different things.

Over the course of our marriage, there have been times when we've been very good about talking to each other. And there have been times when the opposite has been true...including somewhat recently.

I'm pretty sure if we'd followed Fr. T's "communication, communication, communication" admonition, we might have known what the other was doing. And we might not have ended up ordering 20 boxes of Girl Scout cookies!


(This is only about half of our purchases.)

I guess there's WORSE things you could have not communicated about. At least you didn't end up with 20 cars! ;) LOVE Girl Scout Cookies. Unfortunately, they're not Weight Watchers friendly! :(

There are much worse miscommunication mishaps than a deluge of GS Cookies, Amy! :)

I've got dibs on the Thin Mints!

as communication failures go, this one seems to have a tasty silver lining! :)
