I Am Thankful

It has been pointed out to me that when I talk about Husband here on the blog I tend to only point out the less stellar of his personality traits. He says that this deters him from reading the blog. In the interest of fair and balanced reporting I give you the following Reasons I Love Husband: He is a good looking, hard working, man who loves his family. He's a great Dad, understands computers and thinks I'm worth keeping. Though he grumbles, he puts up with a lot of yarn, scads of UFOs, and mountains of books. He is a neat freak who complains very little about my lax housekeeping methods. He tells me, "Dinner's good, Honey," nearly every time I cook dinner. He does the dinner dishes and all his own ironing. Though he'd like me to go back to work, he doesn't really expect that I will and he's OK with that. When a cat creates a hairball he cleans it up (if the dog doesn't beat him to it.) He doesn't play golf. He has great taste and did an excellent job redoing the bathrooms and all the woodwork in the house. He lets me keep the Christmas decorations up until January 6th even though it drives him a little nuts. He cleans Dog's ears and trims his nails. All of his dirty clothes make it into the dirty clothes basket. He reads to Daughter nearly every night before she goes to bed. There would be items in the refrigerator capable of colonizing distant planets if he didn't clean it out as frequently as he does. He is going to let me choose my next car all by myself, he will then help me haggle and get the best deal possible even though he hates that part. I am thankful that I found him and snagged him for my very own.

He also mentioned at lunch today that housewives should spend more time cleaning and less time blogging. I told you, Dear, that would make it into the blog.

The stole continues apace. I thought I was almost done, then I looked at the pattern photo and saw that there were 4 repeats, not 3. (If you're a Ravelry member it's here.) I was hoping to deliver this tomorrow, but it looks like it won't be ready until next Tuesday.

He had me up until the more cleaning less blogging thing. But I suppose that even the best husband will have some flaws...even a major one like that!!!! :)

He does the dinner dishes? I'm so jealous.
