I think the funniest things happen when I'm with my husband. We're constantly laughing and joking around with one another. I wish I could share these moments with you but out of respect, and consideration I must withhold all that information! Instead, hubby has allowed me to tell you this - he says I'm bossy! Humph! Can you believe that? I beg to differ. Well, maybe just a little. Someone has to take charge around here! You see, hubby is laid-back, happy-go-lucky. Me? I'm shy. No, really I am! I'm clumsy but I'm also a neat freak. I dislike clutter. (Hence so I don't trip or fall) I like to be organized; and I like to be on time. If I ask him to do something for me; I expect him to do it now! Hubby, on the other hand, likes to take his time - sometimes it takes him an hour, a few days, months or even years! He can be impulsive. I watch in fascination as he works on a project then moves on to another in a blink of an eye! When it comes to parenting, he's a wonderful father but he tends to "give in" to the boys, while I stand firm on my "no". I consider myself a planner; he says he doesn't have a plan - he lives in the moment. Is he romantic? No. Sentimental? Yes. Hubby says we're like yin and yang; thatwe complement each other so well. I know our marriage isn't always perfect; we have ups and downs, and have our daily struggles. Hmm...I guess this post is really about him and not being bossy! I write about my boys all the time but I fail to mention that I have such a wonderful husband. He's very funny, smart, generous, sweet and one big "softie". Of course, he'll deny this and state that he's a tough guy!
Now that Valentine's Day is just around the corner, what do you love most about your husband or partner? Do you celebrate it every year?
Honey, are you reading this? You better take notes!
