Austin is so awesome! :) I think I'll keep him forever and always! One of the things that I love the most about Austin is that he is 100% genuinely himself all the time. He does not change who he is depending up on the situation or the group of people he is with. He just is who he is, and he doesn't pretend to be anything that he is not.
(I just felt like wedding pics today :)
This brings up a very important issue for all of us. I fear I have misled some of you, and for that I am truly sorry. My intent for ~ My Husband Rocks! ~ Fridays was never to give anyone the impression that we need to pretend like everything is okay when it is not, or portray a false image of our marriages in order to have a great "MHR post." I completely understand and appreciate that we are all going to have weeks when it is hard to remember something about our husbands that makes them so amazing. This does not mean that we love them any less than we do on the weeks when our lists are overflowing from the computer screens. It just means that they are human, and so are we. MHRF is there to encourage us to choose to focus on the things we love and appreciate about our husbands instead of dwelling upon those aspects of their personalities that make us want to scream. I believe that when we do that, it will lead to harmony in our homes because what we choose to think about and focus upon has the most tremendous impact on our attitudes.
I am not sure that any of that made much sense after it came out of my brain, but it has been bugging me for the last few days, and I wanted to be sure that I cleared it up.
Anyway, back to my rocking awesome husband! :)
It has been pretty cold here this week, so every morning as part of his routine Austin makes sure to go out and turn my car on so it has time to warm up. I did not ask him or expect him to do this, he just did it.
He has also been very tolerant of my projects. I am the kind of person who always has way too many things going on at one time. I know this. I am admitting that I have a problem. Recently it has gotten very crazy. In addition to all of my real responsibilities with the house and food and hubby and dog, I am in the middle of reading at lest three books, writing mine, getting ready for the holidays, and this week I decided that I should make a quilt. Oh, and I think I have a half-crocheted baby blanket somewhere, too. My poor born-organized hubby cannot understand this compulsion, but he has been such a sweetheart this week. I know that having the quilting pieces laying out in the family room is not his desired decorating style (and I do tidy up when I am not working on it) but he has not complained about it at all, and he has even been very encouraging about catching up with my NaNoWriMo novel (I'm about 5,000 words behind at this point, and he is very good at reminding me that that project actually has a deadline).
So, suffice it to say, my husband totally rocks!
