~ My Husband Rocks! ~ He puts up with me!

Click here to read about why I started MHR Fridays!


Good morning everyone! I hope that you have all had a wonderful week so far! It has been crazy around here (isn't it always?) I'm headed to Women of Faith this weekend - in fact I need to leave my house in like 30 minutes, but I really wanted to get this post in!

This has not exactly been a shining star week for me. I have been moody and emotional and pretty bratty at times. I completely forgot t make supper on Monday, I forgot to return movies to the redbox (also on Monday), so we ended up paying for three of them twice and one of them three times (brilliant, I know), I accidentally sent an e-mail containing a typo to about 5000 people and had to re-send it (for work) - all in all I have basically been a #1 screw up most of the week!

But you know how Austin has responded to it all? With absolute kindness and humor. He has helped me not take myself to seriously, and even when my screw ups have affected him hugely (skipping supper is never fun) he has been sweet and understanding! Not only that, but he is kicking me out of the house this weekend to Women of Faith :) He's such an amazing man!

Gotta keep this short and sweet because I still have a couple little things to do before I feel like I can leave, but I hope you all have a fantabulous weekend!!!


Austin had a super rocking moment last night - in a moment where I was showing off my not-so-rocking side, lol!

We purchased a new snowblower/lawn mower machine (I know that there is a much more technical term for this device, I just cannot think of it at the moment) this winter, so last night, since it is getting nice and the grass is growing, Austin was working outside switching it from the snowblowing functionality to the lawn mower persona. And I was putzing around the kitchen doing some dishes, folding some laundry, you know - girl stuff, lol! (j/k) when I discovered that even though I empty my lint trap out regularly like a good homekeeper, there is still a ton of lint that gets trapped inside the little cagey part of my dryer! Try as I might to get it out of there I could find no device small enough to reach down to the bottom and bring back up with it the offending lint.

My knight in shining armor (actually at that point it was slightly on the dirty side t-shirt - he had been laying on the ground working on the lawn mower) chose that opportune moment to be done working outside and come in to rest for the evening. Me being the always-considerate of his time wifey that I am pounced on him the second he was through the door with "How am I supposed to do this?" (imagine a sightly annoyed - yes - even a little whiny tone). At that point he could have said - "Honey, I'm hot and tired and would rather work on that later." But he didn't. He just got out his little drill, took a couple of screws out of the inside of our dryer and proceeded to vacuum out the inside! Not only did he not put me off, he did the job for me! - Isn't he great! :)

(I wanted really bad to take a pic of him with his head inside the dryer, but I thought he might not appreciate the angle too much :D)
