When I'm not being put off by the fact that my husband didn't wipe the counter or was completely oblivious to what I was saying to him, I can sometimes recognize the prince he can really be.
While many of my girlfriends have husbands that come home and ask "what did you do all day?" because they actually want to know what got done, mine asks that question simply to see how my day was. He couldn't care less if the laundry got ignored because I went out to lunch with a friend or decided to read a book.
While I have friends whose husbands expect a hot meal on the table every night, mine just feels lucky to be fed. Seriously, its true.
And on that topic of being fed do you know what he said to me? Something I never ever in a million years thought I would ever hear. He was complaining that there was too much food in the house and that I've been cooking too frequently. He wants a leftover night to catch up on all the meals I already made. What? Am I on candid camera? Nope, he actually said it and meant it. I had planned on making dinner tonight but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth. Leftovers it is. And I'll be sure to remind him of this conversation the next time he complains there is no food in the house.
