Reasons I Heart My Husband
Now, this could get a little sappy, but really, I must brag for a little bit. Oh, and the reasons are included, but not limited to, the items listed here.
10. He lets me sleep on the side of the bed with the air conditioner. And he doesn't even complain (at least not much) about the fish flopping I do when I can't sleep (which is all the time). 9. He loves to sit outside all day with me...sometimes we go to the park, sometimes we go to the bar, sometimes we go to the pool...it doesn't matter. But a gorgeous day means we are outside. However, we did waste one of the most beautiful days of 2007 inside Bed, Bath and Beyond for 4 hours registering for wedding gifts...painful. 8. He bought me Rock Band and lets me play the drums all the time. 7. He is hsyterical. Probably the funniest person I know. Kangaroo Song! Kangaroo Song! 6. He looks super hot in his Six Jeans..and his Sevens. Yes, I fully support the purchase of fancy pants for men...seriously, his butt looks so good! 5. He is such a good friend - to me and to everyone he meets. This is a good thing because I am generally pretty evil...they say opposites attract? 4. He took me to the ballet for my birthday and didn't even make fun of me when I cried through the whole thing. Then at intermission, we bought too much booze, so he smuggled it into the theater in his coat pockets. 3. He has adopted my dog...his name is now Dog Blain. And he taught him how to do the Hog Tie...it's very similar to calves getting roped. 2. He loves to be a redneck. It's funny though, because a guy who wears Seven Jeans can't actually BE a redneck, but he tries...he really does. He drinks crappy beer, shoots bb-guns and fishes. For some reason, this turns me on. It baffles me too. 1. He calls me his angel...and we all know how unangelic I typically am. 0. Mostly though, I love him because when the alarm goes off at 4:30 in the morning, he cuddles me for the first 9 minutes of my day (snooze time)...and it is the best 9 minutes of every day.
Okay, enough sap. But seriously, I am the luckiest woman alive.
I am your average bear. I have a job that I go to every day. I have amazing friends and a wonderful family. I am married to my best friend and we have the best dog in the world..and then we have another dog who we are training to be the second best dog in the world. It's a work in progress. In my spare time I am either sitting on the couch watching some ridiculous trash or training for the next big triathlon...which has morphed into growing a crotch parasite in my belly. It's tough work, but somebody's gotta do it.
