Nope....not today. I'll do the "meme" later....can I just say that I read at least 3 of the same MEME....you can tell that we all cruise each other's neighborhood. I'll do it later.
BUT FIRST...I have to share with you how blessed I am to have the hubby I have.
My sweet hubby and I have been married almost 17 years. We do have one of those sickeningly wonderful marriages. He gives us what we need and almost ALWAYS what we want.
Well, just scroll down to read my latest post about the day I had a few days ago. Yesterday, wasn't really too different. Each event was not a problem. But it just kept coming and coming and coming.
I love my children. I love being a mom. I don't really care to get a lot of "me" time....but some days, I'm wound as tight as an 8 day clock. Yesterday was such a day.
I told my hubby that when he got home that I would need a break. I didn't have any plans except to run away for a bit. We aren't made of money. I knew the library would be closed, or closing soon. My option was pretty much to stroll through the aisles of WM...which I totally don't mind doing when I'm alone. I do like to grocery shop and stuff like that.
DH came home. I was sitting on the porch to escape the noise and craziness in the house....2 kids had followed. I was OK...just tired. SO TIRED.
My hubby gave each child some attention. Then, MY MAN gave me a much-needed bear hug. He then whispered some of the sweetest words in my ear. He said, "Go get a manicure and a pedicure. Go to a nice restaurant to eat. Take a book and go to Starbucks to get a chai latte and read. Come home when you're ready."
Couldn't you just kiss him? Well, no...not YOU kiss him, but you know what I mean.
I excitedly got ready to leave. I took about 15 minutes to give a briefing as to what had to happen that night with the kids. I went for my pedi and mani. I went to eat Italian food. I didn't go to Starbucks, but I did go to Walgreens for stuff. THEN, I went to Chick-fil-A for a cookies and cream milkshake. I was gone for a little over 3 hours.
My hubby sent me out for fun and peace and he handled soccer practice, dinner, finished a science project and bedtime.
THEN, to top it all off...he woke up to get the kids ready for school, took everyone who was awake for donuts, dropped off the kidletts and brought me some breakfast to boot!
I'm so blessed.
I LOVE MY MAN!
