things husband thinks or husband is a keeper despite all this stuff
today is husband's birthday and our 11th anniversary. husband is thirty-fifteen today. but he just gets better and better with age. and cuter, just when i didn't think that was possible. i thought i'd give you some little-known facts about husband in honor of his birthday...
things husband thinks:
~ that a toothbrush is a toothbrush and doesn't really belong to anyone in particular.
~ that the alarm should be set for an hour before you really want to get up, so you can enjoy the "conscious happiness of sleep" (his words) that is the snooze button.
~ that it's ok to put away the dishes as if he doesn't live here and therefore doesn't know where they belong.
~ that the problems of the world really started when the masses got money.
~ that it's odd that there are murders in midsomer every saturday.
~ that socks should be strategically placed in little sock mountains around the bedroom floor, usually right beside a laundry basket.
~ that dishes shouldn't be stacked in the sink.
~ that the refrigerator should be cleaned once in awhile, but strangely never does it...
~ that he should wait until birds could use his hair as a suitable nest before getting it cut.
~ that it's fun to see how far you can go once the gas tank says empty.
things husband does:
~ snores like the chainsaw i should be buying him for his birthday.
~ eats at least one truly giant ice cream every summer.
~ goes and gets fresh bread and pastry on sunday mornings.
~ he makes me laugh every single day.
~ he admits when he's wrong.
~ he humors me.
~ drinks copious amounts of port, even tho' it is a drink for old ladies.
~ he chops wood, starts fires, opens jars, kills bugs, carries the heavy stuff, digs where i tell him to in the garden (and some places where i don't tell him to), shovels the snow, puts oil in the car and makes sure the child gets to school on time.
in other words, husband is a keeper. and i'm keeping him. and i hope he has a really happy birthday.
