I LOVE MY HUSBAND
Gray is dryer lint, the soft wings of doves, dust bunnies huddled under the bed. Gray is dirty sheets, thunderclouds, tarnished silverware. Gray is granite, statues, concrete. Gray is fading, hard to see, foggy hillsides. Gray is far from blue.

20 Christmas cards are addressed so far and the Christmas newsletter is written. Whew! Progress is being made. A dent in. A bite out of.

I just want to note publicly that I married Superman. He's mine, and you can't have him. Since we got the keys to the new house last July, even before it was finished, this is what Anders has done in 182 square meters of house, 900+ square meters of yard and a garage: spackled and sanded EVERY SINGLE nail hole and seam in every wall and ceiling, painted the ceilings, put up wood trim around the entire house in every room and baseboards too, hung doors, wallpapered every room, tiled the entryway, hallway, kitchen, laundry room and little bathroom, built an entire garage from scratch (with the help of some friends), put up lightswitches, contact covers and lights, hung paintings and pictures, put up shelves, dug ditches, weeded, built a divider wall, paved the driveway, pathways and all the way around the entire house, built a deck, sown grass, held down a full-time job, fixed a motorcycle, changed tires on 2 cars, been a scout leader for 3 seasons, cooked 6 turkeys and numerous other yummy feasts, moved furniture, gotten kids dressed nearly every morning, picked up kids from school nearly every weekday, and that's just the short list.

Wow!

Do you perchance have a rental plan for this man of your's? As you know, I've just moved to the 'House of Dooooom' and it sounds like Superman could DEFINATELY help me put things right.

Maybe we could come to some arrangement?!

:) It's brilliant that you notice these things. :) Alot of women don't appreciate their supermen. It's great that you do! :) YAY!

Re: Wow!

LOL :) no way man, he's booked solid for the rest of his life :)

Must be something about the name "Anders". We have an apartment, not a house, but my Anders built from the ground up the house that his ex-wife and kids now live in, and it's a gorgeous house. He can handle the most intricate flat-packs from IKEA and Jysk, do incredible things to our bikes, manage a full-scale garden on a balcony, iron any shirt or dress one cares to own, clean like nobody's business, cook incredible gourmet meals AND keep me happy and content when I have a work schedule that's killing me. And he's MINE, ALL MINE!

We're so lucky :)

Gee!!! I got exhausted just by reading the list of what he has been doing!!
I think you are really lucky, because he seems to be the right man for you. You are both so active and I don't understand where you get your energy from, but you surely have it.:)

well, remember that list is over the course of a year and a half :) LOL! I don't know where we get our energy from either, frankly!

What a great tribute! did you let him read it? and....Do you need a Superman shirt- or maybe even pajamas for him for Christmas??? Not sure they're available though- but probably somewhere! mom

haha! don't you DARE, Mom!
