Because it’s your birthday

27 Dec

How do I love Thee?  Let me count the ways:

  1. For almost 12 years you have spent your birthday driving me (and the kids) to see extended family for Christmas get-togethers even though you are most definitely a homebody.
  2. Last year (on your birthday) I had surgery and your birthday got pushed aside.  You never complained.  Your children watched you love and serve your wife completely.
  3. You wrapped every single Christmas present this year and most of the gifts last year.  You are my hero.
  4. You do P90X with me so that I have a partner and accountability even though you really dislike it.
  5. You read C.S. Lewis to the kids before they go to sleep.
  6. You didn’t complain when I brought home the wrong number of candles for your cake/cookies/brownies.  (I promise, I know that you are thirty two, not thirty one.)  And you still blew them out, wrong number and all…
  7. You eat whatever I place in front of you, and you do so happily.
  8. You love babies, even when they are not our own, and you’ve never minded being spit-up on.
  9. For the last week I’ve barely been able to walk and you have taken care of everything around the house…everything. And you did those things while under extreme stress…with a smile. There was always a pillow under my foot and a cup of coffee on hand.  I’m honored to be your wife.
  10. You put up with my picture-taking.  🙂

Happy Birthday.


Just so you know…

6 Sep
  • This is my birthday week.  On Friday my husband (and kids) will make me the best cake ever.  It’s so yummy and makes my house smell like fall.  I wish I could give you a slice.
  • I leave for London in 13 days.  My passport still isn’t here. I know it’s coming but I would feel much better if I were holding it in my hand.
  • While I’m gone, my husband is going to be schooling the kids and working at the same time.  I’m worried he might lose his mind…
  • If you lose your driver’s license and then it expires, you really shouldn’t wait 3 years before having it renewed.  They may make you get a permit and retake your driving test…just so you know
  • Chris and I are still doing P90X.  I may or may not be on speaking terms with Tony Horton. One of us has had to tighten their belt a notch already, the other has lost nary a pound.  I’ll let you guess which one is me.

That’s all I’ve got for now, friends.  I seem to have misplaced my creativity.  It’s probably in the same place I laid my driver’s license…
