Anyway, we do ask each other what we want for Valentine's Day. Some years I've gotten jewelry and, there is definitely chocolate. I couldn't resist getting B a mug this year that says "A beer for my dear." I told my husband that I wanted a marathon for Valentine's Day. I don't know which one because we don't know when we'll pick up our son, I start PT tomorrow, and things are up in the air. I have my mind on Grandma's or Milwaukee. I'd just like to do one marathon this year.
I work part-time five days a week usually at night. For the last couple days, I've been coming home from work to a cleaner house. The clothes are put away. The dishes done. Everything is tidied. My husband asked me last night if I figured out the gift that he's been working on. I said, "A clean house."
He said "Well, partly. You said you wanted a marathon for Valentine's Day. I'm giving you the gift of time. If I get these things done, you will have more time to workout, train, or get other things done."
This morning I came downstairs, and the more organized house settled me. Things I would do first thing in the morning are done. I already notice more time. Quite a gift.
He is such a keeper.
