Next week is our wedding anniversary, it will be 9 years since my husband and I stood in front of our friends and family and promised to spend the rest of our lives together. So innocently and naive we were when accepted those vows not realizing what would come with them: 3 kids, a mortgage, long nights of my husband snoring, and laundry and dishes that pile up higher than our ceilings. Through it all, I love my husband more now than I did then.However, as amazing as my husband is he doesn’t always get the nice little “clues” I leave him when it comes to gift giving. He means well but I have received a lot of kitchen appliances, miscellaneous sports equipment, and “I Love You Mom” mugs. This year I would really like an iPad. In my previous post I listed six reasons for why he would want me to have one… it made him laugh, and not in a comical way but more of a “no way will I ever buy you one” way. So this will be my last *little* nudge, I will cross my fingers that it works!
Reasons # 7-10 on “Why my Husband should want me to have an iPad”
7. You don’t know how to sew. Eating fast food every night for dinner will eventually lead to your buttons popping off your pants. Your waistline will miss my home cooked meals, and so will you.8. I am annoying. I’m pretty sure that after 9 years of being married to me you have figured this fact out. It may have dawned on you when I decided to make signs and held a sit-in in our living room once over a puppy named “Bob the Bull Dog”. But back then I was very young, I didn’t realize how to bargain effectively. Thank goodness I have matured… and with maturity came a lot more annoying qualities that don’t tend to back down.
9. The sofa is not very comfortable. After driving 3 hours, crashing my car, and dealing with screaming kids we were able to bring home the sofa I found off of Craigslist. Sadly, you hit a pothole on the freeway and broke off a leg. We have yet to replace it, so our sofa tends to tilt to one side. This can make it very awkward to sleep on. Not to mention, I don’t share pillows or blankets to those who sleep on my sofa.
10. Last, but not least. You are my very best friend. You love me more than anyone could ever love me. You enjoy seeing me smile. You enjoy making me happy. Watching me open up my gift will bring complete joy into your life. You will be able to officially day a happy man. It will complete you.
So, dearest husband I leave you with this…The nearest Apple store is in the Irvine Spectrum and they open at 10am and close at 9pm. And use the credit card that gives us miles, we will be needing them next year when we celebrate our 10 year!
