He sure is swell

I have a great husband. I just thought you should know. After he came home from Japan (completely exhausted and jet lagged) I have been crabby and not nice to him because I don't feel good. Yesterday I looked at him and said something along the lines of "After the kids are in bed you're gonna run to the store and find me something of the chocolate variety." He just smiled. "Ok". I know he hates running errands like this but he did it anyway. No questions asked. And the truth of the matter is he is almost always willing to do stuff like that, even if tired, just to make me happy. What a swell guy.
ALot of my friends say I should demand more time to myself, more things for myself. And in many ways I should try to get away more and have time for me. But when it comes down to it Dan really never says no to me. If I say I need time away, he finds a way to do that for me. If I say I feel fat in my clothes, he finds a way to get me new clothes - even when we don't have money. He's a really good husband who really does put my needs first. So even though I get bitter as he is skiing the slopes of Nagano or surfing the waves of Waikiki, when he gets home I know he'll listen when I need something for ME too. Anything from flying my best friend to see me (even though we can barely pay our bills) to running to the store when he is running on empty to find me a slice of chocolate cake.
Now I have to ask, is that love? Or it just fear of the inner beast that rears its ugly head monthly?

Vert sweet of him! What a nice little tribute!

Ginny said...

It's love, sweet love! Sounds like you got a good one! As for taking time for yourself, it's not that our guys won't let us; it's that we won't let us,

Yes, true love and totally dedicated to his family....but, you knew that already! :)

Catch said...

He sounds like a real Sweety!

Carolyn said...

Definitely love. The fact that he is still that sweet after three kids says that you have a great relationship. (In my experience, most men give up after the kids come.)

BTW, did he bring you home some tinfoil from Japan?

You said you wanted something sparkly!

Oh I know it's love for sure. He's a good guy. Of course I can get a little scary when I am hormonal. Can't we all? :)
Carolyn - Dan brought me back the prettiest tea set from Japan. I'll have to post pics when my camera gets a new battery.

I think the answers to your questions are, in no particular order, "Yes" and "Definitely, Yes".

I totally think that a guy who goes and buys you chocolate whenever you demand it is a keeper! (or one who goes and gets you burritos at midnight; my DH has done that for me too many times to count!)
Great post!!
(But I would be a little bit envious of him going to all those great places!)

You're very lucky. I'm still looking for a guy dumb enough to pop the question! Or is that waiting for my father desperate enough to pay someone to pop the question?
