I *heart* my husband!

I had one of "those" days...

ya know...

the...

didn't get enough sleep...

house is oh.so.messy.where.do.i.start...

a back-slidden-potty-trainee...

a not our usual smooth school room adventure...

can't seem to find a way to sneak into the shower...

kinda day!!!

Then the husband come home from a hards day of work...
and his wife has no interest to figure out something for dinner, AND wants to sit on her bum to watch not one, but two episodes of her favorite show. :^/

(nice, huh?... yeah, not so much)

He cleans the kitchen spotless, then fixes dinner, (yes, this is pitiful, I do know this), and strongly directs the older children into pitching in with the rest of the house disaster...

and as I feel like the loser wife of the century, I add to my not.so.lovely.charm.of.the.day by saying "hmmm, couldn't handle my day off eh?" (like why start a war? sheesh, what was i thinking?)

and dear Husband says in his matter-of-fact, plain, simply-stating-a- truth, calm-sorta-way...

"There is too much to do around here for any one (1) person"

ugh!

If he only knew that I LOVE...

doing his laundry so he always has the clothes he needs ready to wear...

keeping the house tidy so that he feels invited in after work...

pulling off a descent dinner to feed his stomach & warm his heart...

to keep finances in order as to be good stewards of his hard efforts of daily work...

schedules that keep our kids eager to learn, especially when dad is home to share with...

friday.night.candle.light.shave.my.legs.bubbly.baths
that helps me feel like a person (aka wife) again.

One of "those" days are rare, and it isn't pretty, but my man loves me anyways...

Thank you God for such a man as this! =)

I love your honesty! its refreshing and its also encouraging to know that I'm not the only mom who struggles from time to time with the daily tasks and duties of life! We are so blessed to have men, Godly men, who love us and care for us unconditionally and who willing to pitch-in and help when we are running on low!

Yay for celebrating husbands! I love doing things for my hubby too. It's amazing the little things that speak love to them. When I was working part time there were occasion when I was behind on laundry and it really bothered him when his clean stuff was running low. Now that I'm home it's such a blessing to make sure he's stocked up! The little things mean so much sometimes!

Tomorrow is Homecoming Day for us...lots to do to 'bless the homecoming' ...which includes shaving legs :)

Then, come Monday morning...he'll be doing what your hubs did, so I can melt in a heap of I NEED YOU HOME WITH ME (and not just to help raise kids and make dinner...the adult conversation gets me...)

Hope you're feeling better, and I agree with Carol Lindsay...give yourself a break (and call me to vent:)

Have a great night Sheri!
Love!
Kathi
