|Saturday - 8:00pmish.|
(It's hard to know. I wrote a lot of reports. He fixed a lot of ceiling.)
In the midst of this infatuation phase, I often find myself in awe of my husband's knowledge.
How does he know so much stuff?
Stuff about stuff, you know?
Hubby would be the first one to tell you (proudly) that he
"ain't all that book smarterer or nothin'".
But he's got the smarts.
I am constantly wondering - am I particularly dumb or is Hubby particularly clever - in a real world kind of way?
Recently we were dismantling a trampoline together and a few of the springs were stuck. Super stuck. After much grunting and a few choice words Hubby took off.
He returned a minute later with some tie down straps from his car and created a pulley system to get those suckers loose.
Why didn't I think of that?
You can pick a topic - any topic - and Hubby will know something about it.
A random fact, a statistic, an inappropriate joke.
Or all of the above.
Socially, Hubby can hold a long winded conversation with absolutely anyone.
No matter their profession, interest, hobby, political view or sport - Hubby's got something relevant to say or ask on the subject.
Although I'm fairly independent, when something is seriously broken or seriously gross, I know I have an excellent back up plan in my Hubby.
There's not a job that Hubby won't attempt
(as opposed to complete, you understand?)
Over the course of this weekend alone Hubby has turned his hand or head to:
ceiling fixing and painting,
pool filter repair,
tantrum taming, (without great success unfortunately )
child psychology, (also with limited success)
paddling, (with much success - congratulations hon)
Irish folk music,
set top box retuning,
television shopping. (As in buying a t.v., not stupid infomercials.)
He does listen to talkback and hate on his grey hairs these days - so maybe he's just wise?
Oh - and he's cute.
I get to go to 'Ladies Night' and spend the evening thinking how uncanny it is that one of the 'entertainers' looks just like my husband? True.

No honey, this is not intended to be compensation for the hours I've spent on school reports this week.
Although, your enthusiastic, industrious approach and innovative thinking have made you a pleasure to have in the household this year.
