I am a lucky man

I mentioned early this year that I have the world’s greatest wife. Well, now she’s out-done her latest show of greatness. She’s packed up the kids and went to her parents house for the week. In the process, she’s left me a to-do list that consists of mowing the lawn and playing video games. I’ll only have to do the former once. The latter will be done over and over again. Mostly Guild Wars but I’ll sneak some other stuff in there. Man, this is beyond love. Sure I have to work everyday but she didn’t weigh me down with a to-do list of unattainable magnitudes. Just two things I can actually do

Like I said early, that’s true love defined.

  1. Heh. The work crowd would refer to that as lots of “unsupervised time” – always a precious event. I actually goaded the Girl into playing Lego Star Wars this Sunday, so I’ve learned to count my blessings as well.

  2. That is some noyce! Not sure what I’d do if given a whole week off from the wife and kids; I’d be happy as a pig in you-know-what if I could have a Saturday! Enjoy!

  3. This must be the day for that, Tony. Only, I get a weekend.

    BONUS: I’m a history buff and she even knew what the anniversary of today was.

  4. “Unsupervised Time” — I like that. So far, so good. I forgot to add “go golfing” to my to-do list. I’ll be crossing that off the list this afternoon.

  5. BONUS: Im a history buff and she even knew what the anniversary of today was.

    I plead ignorance here, agentgray… What is the anniversary of today (yesterday now)?

  6. It was the anniversary of the landings in Normandy. D-Day.

  7. I knew that!

    ( because I have a “this day in history” widget ) 🙂

  8. How thoughtful!

    If this was my wife, I’d spend half the week wondering what she really meant by that list.

    You want true love? A wife that gives you the silent treatment for six years…that is true love!

  10. >If this was my wife, Id spend half the week wondering what she really meant by that list.

    Good point! It’s probably just reverse psychology; don’t tell him anything he has to do, in the hopes he’ll do twice as much just to be sure he covers what he should “know” he should get accomplished!

  11. Yah, my wife took a trip to Washington with her mother for a long weekend. She did not leave me a list of things to do, but I knew what to do. I did more gaming in those 4 days than I do in 3 months!

  1. […] Well, it’s strawberry time, which means that the buttonWife packs up the kids and heads to her parents house to help out at the strawberry patch, leaving the buttonMasher with a weekend of free time. It’s not as much time as last year, but it’s cherished alone time nonetheless. […]
