My Hubby Has Redeemed Himself

Valentine's Day came and went. My hubby is horrible at giving gifts. I should be use to it by now, but I just always have a little glimmer of hope, it'll change. I guess there was a whole mix up with my flowers, he did actually make an attempt, but they never got delivered. I told him, skip the flowers, I'd rather have him spend the money on something I can enjoy longer then a week.

Yesterday there was a big auction in Mason. My favorite auctioneer was in charge, so of course I wanted to go. Friday night we went to look over what there was. I pointed out the my hubby several things I wanted and things to replenish the shop. I had a feeling I wouldn't be feeling up to spending all day Saturday at an auction. I barely did a few hours outta the house Friday night. About 3 am I woke up in tears. I had woke up at 2, but fell back asleep. I hadn't taken my pain med and was in PAIN! I told my hubby, I wasn't going to be able to go to the auction and that I've got to learn to stop overdoing it! Yesterday morning we spent the morning, all 3 of us, just hanging out. Around noon, Missy Pete had had 1 too many meltdowns and I was ready for a nap. Off hubby went.

He text me asking me what I wanted to pay for things and what I wanted. He bought the one thing I really wanted, and I told him I'd pay 500 for it. He got it for soooo much less then that!! I'm so excited, I told him he had redeemed himself, and I wouldn't razz him about V-Day anymore, hehe!

So what do you think?? He bought several others, but they are still in the car. I'll post 'em when they get pulled out.


  1. I love the crock, it is a very nice one, you just don't come across them anymore. Hey you are not alone when it comes to a husband not really in to gift giving. I actually got my first flowers delivered to me in 32 years of marriage. Their may be hope yet. Hope you feel better. Vicky
