Thursday Thirteen 21?

In honor of Gill's last week of the Month Of Gill: (and also because I spend way too much time telling him how Gretty makes my life better) (which she does...)

Thursday Thirteen Ways My Husband Makes My Life Better.

1. Makes my sandwiches a special way so the condiment ratio is perfect and between the meat and cheese to prevent bread sogginess.
2. Brings me coffee with just the right amount of sweetener and milk.
3. Orders something he knows I will eat when we are out to dinner and I take a culinary risk. In case we need to switch.
4. Sometimes “sets up” my little relaxation area when I come home from a hard day of work with frosty beverages, snacks etc.
5. Calls me from the grocery store when he is not sure. Tries to make the best possible decision when he cant get hold of me and generally has some type of logic for his decisions showing reflection of my interests.
6. Hangs up my clothes or throws them downstairs when I leave them all over the floor.
7. Organizes me on a regular basis.
8. Gates off my section of the hallway when I sleep in so children are not constantly running in and “telling on him”.
9. Before we had a garage, he would scrape off my car in the winter before he would go to work.
10. Is not crabby when I have to wake him up in the middle of the night because I saw a scary movie and I need him to “spot” me while I go to the bathroom.
11. Only gets mildly upset when I make plans and forget to tell him. Ex: Him: “why is your cousin pulling in the driveway?” Me blushing “Oh…um…do you mind if I go out tonight?” or Me: “Go check and see if we need soda for the party tomorrow”. Him “We are having a party tomorrow? And when were you going to tell me?”
12. He is defensive about the step-monster and other infringements on what he refers to as my “personal crseness”. He always makes me feel supported and validated even if I have to cry and say “you are not being supportive or validating” to remind him to do it.
13. He made me some adorable babies if I do say so myself!

Okay, I totally forgot it was Thursday - how sad am I? I thought it was Wed, so my TT will happen tomorrow.

And hey, wanna trade? Hubby's pretty good, but Gill-Smoke rocks!!!! I think I'm in love! (CALLS from the grocery store? I get "they were out" which really means "I couldn't find it and I wouldn't ask anyone"!!)

Very sweet!

My TT13 is up :)

OOOOh, clone him. As soon as it's available.

I'm with Canada, but I'll just have to hold my TT until I can get it posted next week.

Bubba said...

Wow...he must be an awesome hubby. After that list, I'd almost marry him!

Happy TT...and Happy New Year!

PS: You know I'm kidding. Right?

Do you think you can spare gill for a few days, perhaps send him to florida to teach Tom some of these tricks? I promise to feed him.

My hubby almost had the list pulled too. I had dug up for him a memory folder he has of camp and high school, so many years ago. We have been together for 20 years, so I have heard ALL these stories. So he starts again. I couldn't stand it, so I had to threaten him with a revamped list unless he enjoyed these quietly in the corner, while I got some work done.

My husband is in fact for rent. We need the money this year:)
