It is COLD here, seriously. I was all snuggled cozy in bed when Big Daddy left this morning. I don't know how he does it? I had to get up the other morning and he was in bed and I wanted to jump up and down on the bed and wake him up. I'm so understanding!
I just have all the respect in the world for him. He drags out everyday, always has to work for this family. I remember when he was a policeman and he would work 16-18 hour days following the hurricane. He was so exhausted but he kept dragging out there catching the bad guys and helping old ladies. What a man, really.
So he is off slaying the dragons and I am here teaching the kids(obviously not at this exact moment), keeping the fire going (at this moment you better believe) fixing food, keeping house, doing the laundry that never ends, managing the money, running the house and doing what I spend most of days doing...
let the dogs out
let the dogs in
let the dogs out
let the dogs in.
We both have our stresses, they are different no doubt. My job may be more so some days but I know his is worse than mine on others. I am at least with my family everyday which I know he would give his right arm to be able to say. I am comfortable, warm and safe. I can lay down on the couch when I'm tired, I can take a shower. I can chat on the phone or diddle on the computer without fear of reprecussions.
Some other things I have on him because I get to be home-
I always know what's for dinner
I always know what we're doing tonight
I know what we have and what we are out of so I don't stand with fridge open for 10 minutes looking for pineapple salsa.
I don't have to wonder if I'll have clean jeans the next day.
I never run too late to make coffee.
I am there for all the kids firsts, I have all their stories.
I know whether or not I am going to have sex tonight...honey if you are reading this (wink:wink)!
My before and after school child has caught the bus -I am bad I didn't walk her today. It's 13 degrees!!! Sorry but 13 is a shoe size NOT a temperature.
I am going to take this day by the horns I am gonna show it who is boss...I am thinking about going back to bed.
Another cup o' joe, bed's not a viable option, the kids might burn down the house and they certainly wouldn't be studying about Pearl harbor.
