Why should he love me so?

I have the best man in the world for my husband!!!(I know there are those of you who would argue that your man is best, but it's just not true :-) ) He took his one day off, Saturday, where he could do anything relaxing and spent it installing a dishwasher for me! The Lord provided the funds for us to buy a built in dishwasher, and I thought it would be simple to install! And for a man like Brent, it was simple, and TIME CONSUMING!!! He spent literally all day Saturday tearing out the cupboard, running electrical lines, redoing plumbing under our sink, and hooking up the machine! When I thanked him, over and over again, he simply said, "Because I love you!" Let me tell you right now, that I have never done one single thing to deserve such love from anyone! Let alone such an amazing man! Again, I just have to say, "Why did he choose me?!?" I don't know, but I do have to say that I am so glad that he did!

Along those same lines, let me say how much I appreciate his careful attention to detail...I was watching him (and I must admit getting a bit perturbed at the care he took) as he cut out the cabinet where the dishwasher was going to be. And I even asked him why he was being so careful about something that was just going to be thrown out (or burned!) He told me he was trying to save the pieces for the trim. I thought he was off his rocker and walked away...but when the day came to a close and he put the pieces that he had so meticulously saved back in place, it looked like a professional job for sure! That's my man! Nothing shoddy about his work! :-) I, on the other hand, have been known to just hack away at things, and come the end of the day, it looks like our 4 year old had been at work!

More happy if having a dishwasher after 2 years without one isn't enough...we're on the second half of my hundred day countdown! Only 48 days till our due date is here!!! The last 50 or so have gone so quickly, I can't wait to see how fast the rest of the days go! Can't wait to see our precious little Sarah...or whatever flavor of the week her delivery happens to fall on!

Flavor of the that ice cream or coffee??? Cute idea!! ;) Kudos to Brent for such a great job!! I have never had a dishwasher [my mom still does not have one] and that is something on the mental "someday" list as well! WOW...time is least from the outsider point of view! Can't believe you're getting so close to D.Day!!! Hope you're feeling well!

Thanks for your email address...if I want to send something through snail mail, do I just use the Northland address???

Thanks for the good laugh this morning...I can totally relate to the his way vs. your way (which also happen to be Bruce's way/my way!) comments!!! I am so happy for you (having a dishwasher now) -- I know the great joy it brings and also the time you will save...and this is a good time in your life to streamline any chores that you possibly can!

I do go to Dr. Ryan now...he seems really nice. I sure do miss Dr. Merrill's office though. He is moving out of the area, and I can't help but compare Ryan to Merrill. Merrill's office was very family-like, and I never waited more than 5-7 minutes for an appointment. Best of all, he really tries to deliver all of his patient's babies - even if he is not "on call" that weekend. Oh well. I know that I will get to know people at Dr. Ryan's office too. It will just take some getting used to.
