“It’s Mothers Day and the wood needs chopping. Gonna buy Sharideth an axe.” – craig’s facebook status yesterday.
and he did just that.
you heard me.
thanks to a thoughtful suggestion by GFresh, he also bought me gloves so i wouldn’t get blisters, but only after a minor disagreement about whether or not allowing gloves would inhibit me from toughening up.
here’s the thing though…not only did i want the axe (and gloves), craig also took me to an amazing Mother’s Day brunch, added some choice items while we were at Home Depot buying the axe and completely decked out our deck with a new umbrella for our table, tiki torches and white christmas lights. he cleaned out our fire pit, washed down the deck and got us all set up to entertain in our back yard. it’s like heaven.
he would never post that on facebook though. he’d rather y’all just think he bought me an axe.
so boys, take a page from craig. know what she wants. know what is going to make her beam like Rainbow Brite and give it to her.
am i still unpacking from our move and tempted to just throw out every box still to be opened and start over with nothing? yes. yes, i am. but my kids are all “we need forks! where are the glasses? mom, we’re hungry! blah blah blah blah…”
so i will keep unpacking. i might not be able to find my clothes, but i can have a cup of coffee and type a blog on my gorgeous deck.
what did you get your wife/mother for mother’s day?
