Lineman and I recently celebrated our 16th anniversary. I had picked up a nice western shirt for him when he called me and said, “we’re not doing anything for our anniversary are we, let’s not”. So, I hung that shirt in the closet so at least he would still have something new to wear, even if it wasn’t a gift.
He came home from work and we were visiting when he says “hey hon, can you go grab my slippers for me?” So I head to our bedroom when what should I see on our dresser but this….
That little stinker! He said not to get him anything and then he goes out at gets me a laptop and all the goodies to go with (the hairspray is an inside joke). Can you believe that guy. After 16 years you think I would know all his little tricks!
He gave me a nice little card that sang “Just to see you smile” by Tim McGraw.
Yes, his little surprise gift made me smile. I’ll tell you what else makes me smile. When he laughs, when he plays with the kids, when he laughs, when he smiles, when he laughs, when he is ornery to waitresses, when he laughs. Oh, his laugh is infectious, medicine for my soul, I could never get enough of it!
The laptop is pretty great, it has Windows 7 and so far I’m loving it. I hadn’t realized just how old and slow my desktop was.
And in other news… right now it’s minus 15 feels like minus 29. Phew, this Global Warming is tough to take!
