Matt at Home, Chapter 6

March 19, 2009

Ten Things I Especially Miss About the Wife

  1. Does most of the meal planning, cleaning, and stupid laundry folding – the WORST chore
  2. The morning combo of oats, coffee, and conversation
  3. Watching The Office together and being surprised how much she laughs at Dwight
  4. A warm body next to me in the bed
  5. Going running/walking/biking together, with as much hand-holding as possible
  6. Eats bread
  7. Being appreciated for giving an exam-stress-relieving massage
  8. Works admirably hard to bring our lives to y’all
  9. Is pretty hot, including that big sexy brain (also the rack and caboose)
  10. Is my perfect match in every other way I can think of

Hurry home!!

47 Carrie H March 19, 2009 at 11:25 pm

I might have sounded harsh in the comments I made on the last post, but I didn’t mean anything negative about Kath. I just meant that Kath is a real person with real opinions and that we might all feel like we know her, but we don’t. She does an awesome job with her blog and we all know it, that is why we read.

My husband had been gone for a week too, on a volunteer trip to an orphange in a third world country. And it reminds me just how lucky I am to have him and what it means to have a real relationship in which we can share things with each other.

Goodnight, and keep up with your awesome work, Kath.
