Please excuse me while I brag a little...
I am fairly certain that I have one of the best, if not THE best, husband's in the world. Seriously, I know a lot of people say that, and it's great so many of us feel that way, but I think I snagged the best one. (Don't ask me how, I'm still trying to figure that out myself.)
Mark is an absolutely amazing husband. We truly are a complete team. We can clean our entire house in an hour flat when we work together (and usually we do work together). But on days I'm not feeling the best, he 100% picks up the slack. He'll cook for me, AND do all the dishes (which we have to do by hand since our stupid dishwasher doesn't work), AND do all the laundry, AND fold it, AND put it away, and vacuum and scrub the floors and toilets and showers, and he's the official cat box cleaner now that I'm pregnant. And he does all of that without me ever asking him to do anything. I know MANY of my friends husbands don't help out around the house half as much as Mark does, and my own dad never did half the stuff Mark does domestically, which is fine. Different strokes for different folks, but I definitely prefer it this way. Mark goes shopping with me without ever complaining or getting impatient. He'll go grocery shopping, he plans meals, sometimes he buys me romantic cards and leaves them in places I'll find them while he's at work. He's not all that mechanically inclined because he wasn't raise around working on cars, but he'll do all the research online for fixing our cars and then uses the base auto shop to do work on our cars, which saves us a ton of money. He's currently doing the research to build us a really nice desk top computer. He always treats me with respect, and knows exactly how to cheer me up or calm me down. I feel like I know him 100x's better today, than I did the day we got married. Things just seem to keep getting better. I'm so excited to see what our relationship will be like in another two and a half years.
I really don't know what I did to deserve such an amazing man to spend the rest of my life with. And I thank God every day for putting Mark in my life.
Thanks for reading. Just had to "vent" to someone. =)
