    We're both incredibly drained-- first week of school, followed by all the emotions of 9/11. I put in a good 3 hours or so yesterday on schoolwork-- mostly NHS, then went in to school for another hour or so today to Xerox. Even mass this morning sang all the hymns we sang at every single one of the funerals we were at last year.

    I've been day teary eyed on and off all day.

    I just have no energy. It's nothing a good night's sleep won't heal, but I'm wiped out.

    That said, we have 3 kids and they need dinner.

    Peter was asleep on the couch when I passed by about half an hour ago.

    He just came downstairs, and told me he was running to KFC to pick up dinner.

    He is the best husband a woman could ask for.

    That's a good man.

    It's even romantic if you think about it, since that's sweeter than a candlelit dinner.

    Aw, that's great. :)

    It has been a tough day...I was watching some 9/11 footage on CNN. It brings back all of those feelings and emotions.

    That's the kind of sweet things my hubby does. Bringing home a couple of subs Friday after a week filled with Hurricane Lee flood emotions, 9/11 coming up, building intensity about school and teaching a new subject and added to that, painful poison ivy! Not a good week but a sub lasts 2 meals for me so that was good.
    Glad you got a good one too Alice!

    But see....

    I had Friday off due to the power outage. My wife did not... I awoke with her, warmed up her shower.. made her breakfest while she showered.

    While she was at work I: Did the laundry, did the grocery shopping, cleaned up the kitchen, made her dinner (I was just putting the garlic bread in the oven when she got home)

    Seeing the smile on her face when she got home after seeing what I had done/was doing made it all worth it for me. I'm sure your husband is the same way... seeing your smile is all he ever wants :)

    Okay, my husband messed up royally last night and we had a huge family argument. He came home today, apologized, had another family meeting and resolved all issues. Then he took over everyone's chores and cooked us dinner. Now THAT is apologizing in style!! I'm a happy camper. Plus he fixed my car today and took me to an appointment.

    Last week I got flowers. I get chocolate a lot. I heart chocolate. All weekend I got omelets. We've been playing games with friends. We were up late so he made pigs and blankets for us. We have our tiffs but the man does spoil me too.

    I prefer Original to the Extra Crispy he got.

    But, hey,beggars can't be choosers. I didn't have to think about dinner and I didn't have to cook it.

    It was delicious!

    That's how I feel when I eat frozen pizza (cooked of course). It's not exactly gourmet but I'm alright with it because I didn't cook it. Now the omelets on the other hand, are seriously the best.

    It makes me happy to see how many of us have great love and support and kindness and selflessness exhibited to us by our husbands. It gives me such hope in a world that has so much that can be disheartening. :love: I'm going to look up and smile at my husband right now and remind him that he really is the best!:love:

    I don't want people to think I am blowing my own horn or saying I am the best husband etc..

    I simply wanted to point out that I don't do it because I am the best husband or want to be.. I do that type of stuff simply to see the joy on my wifes face. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to see her smile :)

    Nope, we didn't.

    It was a celebration of those small kindnesses that make such a big difference. Your posts added to the celebration.
