Yesterday on Facebook I shared that disappointment was when you think your husband is bringing home pumpkin spice lattes, but instead plops a bag of ground coffee beans on the table.
Pat was coming home from his weekly grocery shopping trip and I was coming home from the mall with the kids and when he texted the word “coffee?” I was all “YES!”
We beat him home and I held off snacking on anything because I wanted to save myself for that Pumpkin Spice I knew was coming.
He came thumping through the door with groceries in hand and I waggled my eyebrows, “you get the coffee??”
And he was all, “ohhhhh you betcha!”
And he plopped a bag of ground coffee beans on the table.
me: What the heck is this??
me: I thought you were stopping at Starbucks!
him: Oh! No, just grabbing a bag.
me: You grabbed a bag LAST week on last week’s shopping trip. We still have a full one right here…HOW COULD YOU FORGET THAT??
him: Well that’s why I texted you…to see if we needed more.
me: How much coffee do you think I drink every week?? Do you even realize what you’ve just done to my emotions??
him: Aw, sorry about that! You wanna run to Starbucks for us?
me: No I don’t want to run to Starbucks!!!
him: Well what do you want to do then?
And so I grabbed a couple of mugs and made us both coffee because he might not pick up Pumpkin Spice lattes when he implied as much by texting the word “coffee?” to me, but my man makes weekly grocery shopping trips for me and I’ll be damned if I’m going to jeopardize THAT situation by complaining about lattes!
Reasons I Love My Husband:
1.)He brings me warm bottles to give to the baby in the middle of the night when I am cussing him out in my head.
2.)He ignores my juvenile behavior and patiently waits for me to get over myself and discuss our finances like an adult.
4.)He sat at the door of the operating room, after I was rushed in following an emergency c-section, waiting for word of my condition…for six hours.
5.)He drives 45 minutes out of his way to go get me sushi on Friday night because I’m hungry and moody and tired and he wants me to be happy.
6.)He says things like, “Kat. Who are the most important people in your life? We are all here. We all love you. We’re not going anywhere. Just remember that.” and makes me feel better when things start getting to me.
7.)He takes time away from HIS job and comes home on a moments notice to help ME with MY job.
8.) When I’ve had a tough day with the kids he lets me talk it out until I run out of gas and then suggests we send them to a different daycare.
13.)He doesn’t take sides when I tell him to whack our son for an entire day of horrid behavior but instead delicately puts his hand on our baby boy’s head and turns to me to say, “My God Kat, he’s burning up!!” and then asks me to fetch the motrin.
17.) He reminds me of our anniversary when our anniversary is nearly over and doesn’t hate me for forgetting even though I kind of hate him a little for not bringing me diamonds when he was the one who remembered.
23.) He takes weekly grocery shopping trips and I’ll be damned if I’m going to jeopardize THAT situation by complaining about lattes!
