5 Random facts about us

1-According to a recent study by the Geneva School of Business, my BF and I now have proof that we are the perfect couple.  We had already suspected it, but it's noce to have science go and prove it (we had a good laugh about htis one and it has become our inside joke.)

2-On one side of my family I am the first Canadian, on the other side, my family has been here almost 350 years.  My BF has no idea about his family.

3-Someone recently brought to my attention that the roles of everyone in our household (full-time and part-time) are very clearly defined, routines as well.  This was not in any done or decided on purpose, but evolved on its own based on everyone’s likes/dislikes/pet-peeves.  I do laundry and cat related things because they are my cats and my clothes tend to need more care and my BF does dishes and takes out the garbage because he is the major dish user in the house (he uses a plate for one piece of toast).  The kids have fallen into a routine of video games in the morning, then after lunch the games are turned off until the following day.  The funny thing is that both my BF and I generally tend to be improvisers.

4- Though my BF and I are both French/English bilingual, and watch 90% of TV/Movies in English, we never speak to each other in English, unless we are trying to hide something from the kids.

5-When it comes to the tech and car stuff in our household; I am the one who generally takes care of the maintenance and minor repairs.  I’m not a full-fledged DIYer, but I know way more about cars and technology than the BF and am the one who can usually at least diagnose the problem when there is one.  When it comes to home repairs, we are about 50/50.

  1. We have clearly defined roles, too, although we never actually sat down and said who's going to do what. It just kind of happened.
