A Grateful Wife.

Posted by Meghan at 9:08 PM
My name is Meghan, and I am the resident slacker wife.

(Hi, Meghan...)

In all seriousness, hello to all of our new readers and thanks for stopping by. It's been awhile since I've visited TWD, and there's a reason for that...

I am a mess. Between the end of the school year (I am a teacher), the mountains of papers to grade, internet troubles, planning several vacations and realizing that I am turning 30 next week - well, things have been a little hectic. And while this might be a little cheesy, I'd like to use this forum to thank my hubby for the fact that he hasn't committed me to the loony bin...yet. I think it's important to acknowledge the little things our loved ones do for us.

So, hubster, thank you for:

* Buying me Skinny Cow ice cream and eating it with me while we watch "24" at a later hour since I didn't get home from work until 9:00.
* Making me a delicious, healthy, vegetarian meal each night AND cleaning up the kitchen because you know I had a long day.
* Getting rid of my old computer (she will be missed) and hooking me up with your Macbook. And being so patient as I adjust to the new intergalactic settings.
* Speaking of technology, thanks for always Photoshopping my nose in pictures. It makes a difference.
* Buying me flowers - just because.
* Buying me cupcakes - just because. Can you tell I am motivated by food?
* Letting me watch "Glee" and "Tori and Dean" even though you can't stand them.
* Getting up at 6:30 am on a Saturday with me to help me clean.
* Standing in the cold and wind for two hours, cheering me on in the half-marathon.
* Going on coffee dates with me each morning and helping me process the day ahead so I don't become overwhelmed.

I could go on and on and get all sappy and wish for rainbows and sparkles, but I'll leave it at that. Thanks for indulging me:) It's just so comforting that when life gets crazy, my hubby is right there to pick up the pieces and make me feel better.

Who are you grateful for these days? What little gestures do you appreciate?

I love this post too!
Reminds me to be grateful of every little things my hubby does for me and just how much he manages to put up with me Ü

Thank you so much!

Considering that I just woke up and had to grit my teeth because hubby didn't do the dishes last night like I asked him, I think I need to make a list like this.

MrsCaptKerk on May 23, 2010 at 6:09 PM said...

I love this!

I love my husband for doing the dishes. I HATE dishes and he always does them and never complains!

You post reminded me to thank my husband (again) for being wonderful. Hope life gets less stressful for you soon.

So sweet! Sounds like you have a great guy there. Definitely nice to know you have someone to help pick up the slack when you're extra busy or stressed!

This is a cool blog!!!

I adore gratitude lists. I keep one in my wallet to pull out when I'm feeling punchy. They can make anything seem that much better :)

Just stumbled across this blog and as a soon-to-be wife, I'm glad I did! Looks like great reading! :)

awwwww :).

great post Meghan!

a little thing that I love is that craig always washes the sheets. we both do our own laundry, but my loads are few and far between so he always does the dishes and makes our bed all cozy like. OH! ....and i like that he always brings me my toothbrush (pre-pasted) at night. yay for husbands!

Sadako on June 1, 2010 at 3:35 PM said...

Aww, these was sweet. The little things do make a difference, don't they.

Hi how are you?

I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought, why not leave you a comment.

I have a blog also obviously, and would like to invite you to become my blog friend.

Maybe you can follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay...

Well, I hope to hear from you soon.

I feel like I'm reading my own blog here! This is SO me sometimes!! I can be mean and push buttons bad! Sometimes once I start I can't stop either, I hate it! I am the type that I need to be alone in order to calm down, otherwise I'm like the energizer bunny and will keep going and going . .

Maybe if you just walk away before you explode you will be able to think more clearly before losing it! We are all different, but hope you find something that will work and help you!

But trust me, you are not alone!!

I just discovered this blog and I have to say I love it already! Great idea!

The Mr. sounds like a great guy--I should be taking notes.

Mary on June 11, 2010 at 4:15 PM said...

Oo, great post and GREAT blog! Happy I found it!

Sometimes I need to just take a breather to fight fair - helps me put all my *craziness* into perspective ;)

First, I think it is awesome and also great for your marriage that you are thinking about this. Fighting fair is hard and takes some serious thought. Seriously, sometimes a "time out" is totally needed and helpful.

I hope you had a great weekend! I am pooped out from all the fun in the sun! By the way, I know I already commented on this post, but sometimes a good tantrum helps get all the frustration out. I remember holding something in for a very long time with my sister. she is older and likes to be another mama to me. All my life I have had this. Anyway, she kept telling me what to do over and over in a particular sistuation and finally I had a tantrum! This was about five years ago. She got the picture. But it only lasted a month or so. She still likes to tell me what to do. Oh, to be a younger sister! Have a great day!

just found your blog - love it!

Sadako on July 16, 2010 at 9:39 PM said...

Me? I'm a lover, not a fighter. And I LOVE that pic!

Ms. Emily Ann on July 20, 2010 at 9:14 AM said...

I can definitely relate to this situation... I try to fight fair, and so does my guy, but sometimes its impossible with so many emotions involved. We find the best thing to do is give each other some space to cool down and think about what happened, when we come back to talk about it we usually realize that we were both being a bit unreasonable it's a lot easier to make peace :) good luck girly!

Lauren on July 20, 2010 at 6:26 PM said...

I'm a horrible fighter. Most of the time, I think that I'm always in the wrong, and when I full on believe that I'm in the right about something - which is rare - I'm too pansy to truly step up and defend myself. This happens a lot when I argue with my parents. If I knew how to be a good fighter, I would give you my tips, but I'm still learning myself.

this picture is hysterical!

Megan on June 10, 2011 at 9:12 AM said...

Great blog post. And great reminder to not just always complain about what hubby HASN'T done, but thank him for the things he HAS done!
