What a Sweetheart

In honor of Valentines day I thought I'd share a couple Adorable Hubby moments. I've picked up some extra shifts in February. We could really use the additional fundage but nine nights of 9PM to 7AM is tough. Almost as tough as trying to fall to sleep all alone and freezing cold in my semi-dark bedroom.

This past week when I got home, all the boys were ready to go to school and our bed was made with my side folded down and a couple of heated corn bags for my feet. What a sweetie.

Adorable Hubby is always doing thoughtful little things like that.

Yesterday at the end of my shower I took down the shower curtain and threw it away, shudder! Disgusting, but not nearly as bad as the toilet.

Adorable Hubby and I ran some errands, including buying a new shower curtain then, as we were headed home, he said, "For your Valentines gift how about if I clean the toilet for you." Ahhh the sweetness.

15 minutes later I walked in the bathroom to see Adorable Hubby, scrubber in hand, up to his elbow in toilet water...ACKKKKK!

I'm pretty sure that he's gonna want me to hold that hand at some point this Valentines weekend. He'll maybe even use that hand to brush a lock of hair out of my eyes then tenderly cup my cheek as he gently kisses me...

That's my kind of Valentines gift. Forget the flowers! Clean my toilet. True LOVE!
Good luck with your nights! or should I say your days? Both are going to be tough with the schedule you have this month.

I love posts like this where you somehow capture the beauty of every day life and drudgery with the tender and good and you bring it together with humor.

Oh-the thought of a turned down bed with warm heating pads sounds lovely! After nine nights of that shift you deserve it!

Sigh. Now I have to go clean the toilet. I will just her AFTER I hold her hand

Now THAT is romantic! Seriously. After a few years of marriage, someone cleaning the toilet is worth far more to me than flowers!

I love a man who isn't afraid to get dirty... as long as he isn't afraid to hit the shower later!!

I made the mistake of telling my husband that I think he's a hotty when he's mowing the lawn. He came inside all gross and sweaty and tried to come near me and I had to break it to him that he's a hotty WHILE he's mowing... all sweaty and gross when he's done is not hot... well, he probably was hot, but not that sort of hot... confused?
