100 Promises To You

100 Promises

This is the last entry in this chapter of the book.

I'm finally going home today.

I don't feel any inclination to write down 100 things about myself nobody will remember. So fuck tradition... If you don't know me by now, you haven't been reading.

If you have been with me the past year, you have seen the amazing difference love has made in my life.

You have seen how lucky one girl can be.

You know all about the man who makes my life complete and how difficult it's been for us to be apart.

It seems that everyday I write some of my wedding vows.
However, I will never have enough time to say them all on the day we actually get married.

In fact, I'm quite sure I'll probably be too teary to speak coherently at all.

So this is for you, in case I forget to tell you.

Honey, you should know
that I could never go on
without you.

I can't believe we made it.

I'm on my way...

I love you.

1. I will never make you turn off the TV before the rugby match is over.
2. I will always give you the last bit of wine in the bottle.
3. I will try my hardest not to steal your pillow during the night (but I probably still will!).
4. I will make our house a home.
5. I will hold your hand across the table while we're waiting for whatever we ordered for dinner.
6. I will take care of you even when you swear you don't need me to.
7. I won't tell you the ending if you haven't seen the movie.
8. I will love your children as if they were my own.
9. I might be tempted to beat them as such as well, but I won't.
10. I will never call you an embarrassingly cutesy pet name.
11. I will drink scotch with you and your dad.
12. I will be your permanent picture-frame-hanging, shelf-leveling, Christmas-light-stringing assistant.
13. I will never try on more than 3 things in the fitting room if we go shopping together.
14. I will cook your steaks medium.
15. I think of you first.
16. I will send naughty messages to your mobile to make a boring day go by faster.
17. I will never expect you to take out the garbage, but I'll be thankful when you do.
18. I will never ask you if an outfit makes me look fat.
19. I will kiss you when you say I look beautiful.
20. The first piece that comes out of my studio in NZ will hang on your wall.
21. I will trust your judgment.
22. I will let you do your own thing.
23. I will include you in all my big schemes.
24. I will always make you my first priority.
25. I won't make you talk about something that's bothering you until you are ready.
26. I will always bet on your success.
27. I will never criticize you in front of others.
28. I will, however, embarrass you with compliments at will.
29. I will not take it personally that your memory is fucked; I will remind you of the things I want you to remember.
30. I will never ask you to hold my purse.
31. I will try to make you know everyday that you are loved.
32. I will go along for a ride to the post office or the bank.
33. I will never do anything that I know would hurt you.
34. I will thank you first if I ever win an award that necessitates an acceptance speech.
35. I will not ask you what shoes go with my outfit.
36. I will make sure to tell you just how handsome you are.
37. If you get into trouble, I'll help you get out of it no matter how you got into it.
38. I will ask you for your opinion, and not then dismiss it.
39. I will always wear my wedding ring.
40. I will sign both our names on the card.
41. I won't go to bed angry.
42. I will bring you Panadol and water when you're hung over.
43. I will be honest with you.
44. I will motivate you when you're sick of it all.
45. I will let you correct my spelling as much as you want.
46. I will do my best to be someone you'd be proud to be seen with.
47. I will never make you ask me 13 times "What's wrong?" before I tell you.
48. If we're out, I will make sure that it's quite clear to anyone who might be interested that I adore the man I married, I'm going home with said husband, and that husband is you.
49. I will never say "I told you so".
50. I will always make sure we're together on our anniversary.
51. I will always do my best to make sure your kids know that we love them.
52. If you ever get in a barfight, I will jump on the bastard too and then kick his friend in the balls.
53. When we're on a trip, I'll navigate and I'll drive if you get tired.
54. I'll take care of my health so I can live as long a life with you as possible.
55. I will laugh with you, not at you.
56. I will always save the first and last dance for you.
57. I will try my best not to be jealous or possessive.
58. I will smile with you at your kids' weddings, and mourn with you at your parents' funerals.
59. I will keep the inner workings of our relationship between us.
60. I will never demean you.
61. I will help you achieve your professional goals.
62. I will try not to wake you if I have to get up in the middle of the night.
63. I will notice when you get your hair cut or dress sharp.
64. I will never cheat on you. With anyone.
65. I will warm up dinner for you if you get home late from work.
66. When I'm away from you, I'll always talk to you before I go to sleep.
67. I will keep you warm on cold winter nights.
68. I will never forget your birthday.
69. I will do my best to keep our connection strong on all levels.
70. I will embrace my new home and country without forgetting my old one.
71. I will let you love me.
72. I will talk to you if I'm unhappy with anything that's going on.

74. I will respect you always.
75. I will do the best I can for our family financially.
76. I will not hold grudges.
77. I will master the difference between toast bread and sandwich bread; I will not however, eat spaghetti on either.
78. I will be thankful everyday that you're in my life.
79. I will take lots of pictures that we can look back through when we're old.

"10. I will never call you an embarrassingly cutesy pet name."

Thank God she didn't say your friends wouldn't come up with embarrassing names for you.

You two know you've got a group of friends behind you supporting you anyway we can. Love and best wishes to both of you.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Best wishes on your new life. This is way more exciting than any soap.A real tonic to those of us that are struggling to find love and confirmation that it's out there, we just need to be open to it.
Safe journey.

Standing on the sidelines cheering like crazy...tears rolling down my face. Thank you so much for sharing your dreams, your realities, and your hopes with us. Run girl, run. Much love to you both.

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn
