Dearest Husband has a couple super powers. He can anticipate the storyline of any book or movie without fail–every time. He is also a super fantastic gift giver. It’s possible this super power was passed from mother to son. Regardless of how he acquired this unique talent he never fails to amaze me. Yes Honey, the pressure is on! For example this URL was a Mother’s Day gift because he knows I love to write but was never finding the time to finish that novel. Blogging had never occurred to me, but it turns out I love it and it saves my sanity.
DH: Do you remember what you said you would do if we won the lottery?
Jennie: Adopt 2 more Wado Dogs?
DH: Only if you want a divorce.
Jennie: What did I say?
DH: You said you would hire a personal trainer.
Jennie: Oh yea I would totally do that.
DH: Well I don’t think you have to win the lottery. Happy Mother’s Day/Birthday!
I should say that this is not the kind of gift a husband can give to his wife unless she suggests it. It would be analogous to a husband buying a wife a vacuum. But the fact is that I want to get healthy and have lost 2 dress sizes over the last year simply by changing my eating habits. But I’ve hit a plateau and I know I need to add exercise to the mix. Plus we’re taking a long family vacation this summer and I want to go on lots of fun hikes and bike rides without killing myself. So yea this was a perfect gift. Now if anyone has a rockin Father’s Day gift idea I would be completely grateful because in marrying me DH gained a lot of things, but sadly a gift giving super power was not included.
