My Wife Is Awesome

I realized something recently. While I’ve written a lot about the annoying things Sunny does, I don’t think I’ve ever just taken the time to write a post about how awesome she is.

Take this week, for example. My parents are due to arrive in under three days. We’d decided that in the week running up to their visit, we’d absolutely blitz the house and get it sparkling from top to bottom.

It’s not really that either of us are particularly house proud, but my parent’s visit is acting as a ‘motivational excuse’ to finally fix the bits and bobs that have broken in the house over the past year. Those fixes that aren’t really urgent, but just plain annoying, like the dripping faucet in the bathroom.

Plus, considering out entire house stays almost entirely sealed up during the summer, let’s just say we do our Spring Cleaning in the Autumn.

Anyway, as I mentioned in my last post, for most of this week my body decided that all i really felt like doing was coughing, wheezing, shivering and sweating…and while I was out of action, Sunny was an absolute Star.

Not only did she get in from work and make a special trip out to fill our fridge with orange juice, gator aid and all those other things that make you feel better when you get sick…she also went to work on the house single handed. The best part is that she hasn’t actually complained about it once.

In fact, the more I think about it, the more I realize that if I really had to list Sunny’s faults, there’s only one real one I can come up with…and that ‘fault’ is that she does way too much for other people and never really takes any time for herself.

Yup, my wife is Awesome.

Yup, darn tootin' she is!

And by the way, I was not disagreeing with you on the smoking issue. It is most definitely an extremely strong addiction. My dad smoked, my mom smoked, my brother smoked, my sister smoked. Fortunately they no longer do so. Unfortunately, my dad had already had lung problems when he quit. Emphysema took him from us in 1993.

So I second your emotion when you say it is much better never to start. But many times it can be a life saver to quit! So never give up trying.
