This was too cool not to share: 800-year-old rune stick unearthed during excavation of Danish city – – such a great find! I would have loved to have been there when it was uncovered. I love holding history.

In other news, I think the meds I’ve been taking have given me an ulcer. Oh joy. Pain and burning in my stomach. I really don’t want to go back to the doctor, but it looks like I will now have no choice.

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and 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 Monroe (Source: Goodreads).

You go Marilyn! I wouldn’t call her one of my idols or anything, but I do think she was a interesting and colourful person and I love this quote. She’s right – if you can’t deal with me at my worse, than you don’t deserve my best. A person should be loved unconditionally. Everyone deserves that (with few exceptions, I will add). Sometimes we may not get why certain people ever got involved, but it’s not for strangers to decide.

I love my husband. He has seen me at my worse, my bitchiest (illness and fatigue toy with emotions), and he still loves me. He has seen me at my biggest (physically) and he still finds me sexy. He has been my rock and my co-foundation. We are not mutually dependent on each other, but our lives are definitely richer for each other. I do my best to tell him as often as I think to that he is so appreciated. While I wallow in my ill times, he keeps the house going. I find him more and more attractive every day. He is the support I need, my best friend. Even when we are angry at each other, we are still able to talk – sometimes it takes a bit longer than others, but we do it.

Wow, how’s that for a digression. I had no intention of speaking about my husband, but melancholy and an appreciation for all he has done and does brought it out.
