Thank You For Not Commenting

No, not my readers. I crave YOUR comments. This is for Tom. When I came home today with two mini-scarecrows to put in the pots in front of our house, but I didn’t have time to get milk for our breakfast tomorrow, you may not have noticed.

If you did notice, thank you for keeping quiet about it. You see, Halloween is 2 days away and I wanted to get a little decorating on. I have priorities. Like coming home and blogging about it.

I tend to think that if you had gone to the store for a big box of my favorite Special K and had come home with-- I don’t know…a baseball card-- I might have had a little something to say about it.

Thanks also for not getting ruffled about that little home improvement “To Do” list on the fridge. You know I like to write jobs down so we can have the satisfaction of crossing them off if we ever get to them. Thanks for not taking this as a personal affront to your manhood.

When you’ve asked me to pick up stamps while I’m out, I’m sorry for those times I’ve acted like you are trying to oppress me and all womankind. I guess sometimes a stamp IS just a stamp, and a #2 coffee filter is just a #2 coffee filter.

While we’re at it, thanks for never once, in the 9 ½ years since I quit teaching, ever uttering the words, “But you’re home all day anyway.” Good decision. Good man.

Good man, indeed.

If my husband lost his cool over my trivial missteps as often as I have EPIC MELTDOWNS over his, we'd be in some trouble.

He's a keeper. What a lovely litte tribute. Sweet but not syrupy.

Hey, it happens, sometimes a scarecrow catches your eye. A sweet post - you really appreciate each other and it shows.

A, a smart man and a lucky one! Sometimes, a lady's got to get her decorating on. It's funny what a difference it makes. I have a little pumpkin candle from Bath and Body works- it's really the only decorating I've done this Fall. At the time, it felt like an exorbitant $12. But you know what? It makes me SO HAPPY! Every time I light it. Hubs does roll his eyes, it's a little frou frou, comments.:)

What a sweet post. It makes me ashamed that I don't tell "Hubby" often enough how much he is appreciated. Thanks for the reminder.
