1: Lately I've been a little *volatile*. I saw a picture in my APOTD of an eruption on the Sun, which I think most aptly portrays me right now:
|you don't know when the explosion will happen, but it will burn your face off when it does.|
- looking at me
- not looking at me
- telling me my hair looks good
- not telling me my hair looks good
- coming up to help me with the girls
- not coming up to help me with the girls
- saying something encouraging
- not saying something encouraging
- him being alive
2: Instead of getting irritated with me, or at least instead of expression any irritation, he went ahead and stayed up until 2 a.m. last night folding all of the laundry to "give me a more encouraging start to my morning". I have married a gem.
3: And he is going to cater to his ultra-paranoid wife who does not want to be left at home alone for any length of over-night time and is taking us with him to Kalamazoo for a conference coming up soon. This means he will be spending most of his spare time hanging out with me and helping me with the girls instead of listening to talks on stuff he loves, having alone time, praying, sleeping, etc... I hope he has already thought all of this through...
(This also means with will get to crash Dwija's pad for an afternoon while he gives his talk, which I hope she does not regret for the rest of her life.)
4: THEN at the end of the month, he is letting me jaunt off to Steubenville for an entire weekend with one- only ONE!!-child so that me and Lucy can be at my little sister's bridal shower. He will be staying at home with the toddler tyrants.
5: He recently blew me out of the water by finishing his dissertation proposal several months early-- it's not due until August. If it were me I would have started working on it some time in mid-July, but then I'm a real go-getter.
6: He worked his behind off to get the above proposal done so that he could apply for more funding for the summer to feed his family because we're a hungry bunch.
7: He's a stand-up guy and an all around gentleman. Also, he's a hottie.
Head over to Jen's for less nauseatingly sappy takes now!
