Keeping the romance alive?
Having a one year old and both of us working means that at the moment it’s hard for us to have any type of date time. We haven’t been able to go see a movie together for so long. The other day we finished filming at KBS (for an upcoming TV show) and we realised we still had some time before picking up Yul from daycare, and we couldn’t do any other work at the moment. I was excited that maybe we could try to have a date but Hugh insisted that even just walking together was a date. Now the question is: was he being super lazy OR was he being super romantic because any time together he considered special date time? haha
We did end up going to a cafe and doing some shopping together.
How to be annoying in your marriage. Cold Feet!
We revisit quite an old comic from the blog! Are you the North Korea in your relationship? Do you deliberately provoke? Are you a totalitarian dictatorship? No… wait… that doesn’t sound right.
The real question: Are you the type to put your cold feet on your partner?
Original comic is here.
Hugh also elbows me a lot and does weird things like steals extra pillows and puts them on his stomach, or scrunches covers into a ball and sleeps with it like that on his stomach. Recently he even stole the pillow I had for my back (so much pregnancy back pain at moment) and had it resting on his stomach whole sleeping!
But I am a super light sleeper and I get up in the middle of the night several times. I tend to open and shut windows while half asleep or just move things around. I also will randomly put my hand on Hugh’s arm in the middle of the night, which can make him jump.
As annoying as a partner can be during the night, when you are used to them sleeping next to you, when they aren’t there it can be even harder to sleep.
This video was filmed over a month ago so my pregnancy isn’t showing as much and Hugh isn’t as skinny as he is now. I’ve been really busy with the book finally being released soon. Every day talking with my editor, re-doing things, drawing extra stuff for it. But I’m excited to finally have a book for the Korean market, which will hopefully be the first of many.
We have lots of exciting stuff coming up, so please subscribe to us on YouTube!
Also let us know what comics you’d like us to talk about in future videos!
We chat about what it’s like being an introvert and an extrovert in marriage. (This video was filmed a few weeks ago, you may notice Hugh is not as slim here as he is in recent videos).
After that he did start to list things he was thankful for, but made that joke first and said, “You should make that into a comic”. Almost all comic ideas are genuine things that actually happen, but he is the one that prompts me to actually turn them into comics.
Not surprisingly, it was a little bit difficult mood-wise coming back to the middle of the Korean winter after being in the Australian summer. We felt a shift in our moods so we’ve been working hard on being positive and motivated.
um…. thanks??? Who would be poisoning me? Oh yeah, it’s just an excuse to eat some of mine.
Wonderful married life conversation there…
Sometimes I don’t notice things…
