(Oh, how I wish this was my bathroom!)
I don’t usually do gushy posts about my husband. I’m not sure I ever have actually. But tonight, he deserves more than just a mushy blog post. He made my night!
We don’t always see eye to eye on things. Sometimes we don’t get along so well. We love each other profusely, and would like to be the perfect mate for the other, but sometimes, let’s face it, we stink at being the ‘perfect spouse’.
Recently, we’ve come out of a ‘dry patch’ in our relationship. A time when we were each being selfish and unintentionally hurting the other. I love where we are right now. We’re speaking each other’s love language and filling up our love tanks. (can I be any more gushy about this?)
Anyway, on to tonight. I had a ROTTEN day. It was a day that started out with Jack in Time Out before 7:30 a.m. We did have some nice patches throughout the day, like Story Time at our library, but other than that, it was a day to make me fee like a horrible mommy.
Jack refused to nap, and then he refused to let me get any cooking or cleaning done before Rick was due to be home. I was frustrated, to say the least.
I did manage to get dinner cooked and the house ‘red up’. (That’s my Pittsburg family roots showing) But after dinner, and after several phone calls, and after several attempts at keeping Jack from using the ketchup as finger paint, I gave up.
I walked out of the kitchen and said “I’m off duty.”
I asked Rick if he minded if I take a bath. He wasn’t put off at that at all. I was a little surprised at that. I assumed he would be put off at having to watch Jack while I go enjoy a soak in the bath. When he comes home from work, I like to give him some time to unwind, so this was a first for me – asking if I could leave him with the child when I know he wanted to get a little unwinding time in.
Do you know what my wonderful husband did? He not only didn’t have a problem with me leaving for a long soak in the tub, but he brought a boom-box up all the way from the basement and put my newest favorite CD on for me to relax to!
WHAT A WONDERFUL HUSBAND!!!
When he left the bathroom, I was glowing with the love I felt from him!
I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Except for the dishes to be magically washed and put away while I was soaking. We can’t have it all, right?
Thank you, Rick. I love you!
