Sad, but true

My wonderful husband has decided to leave me for the dusty trails of Moab for a weekend. Which is great, becuase he LOVES to bike, and LOVES Moab. However, I do not LOVE being without him. He left last night around 6:30, and after eating a healthy dinner of pizza and kool-aid, I drove around for an hour and a half to keep from being at home by myself. I then played solitare for 2 hours, then finished a book and finally crashed at 1:00 am. Whew. One night down. I know this sounds silly, but I never thought I could miss someone so much, when they are gone for such little tme. He truly is my better half. I realised this morning as I was driving to work just how perfect he is for me. Since he is the only reader of our blog, I will list the (David Letterman)


1. He sings to me. Whether its in the shower, while he is doing dishes, he is singing to me.

2. He is happy when I get to talk to my family or best friends on the phone, even when I talk for hours at a time. :)

3. As much as he loves hard biking, he loves when I come along and we only get about 1/2 mile away before my tush starts to hurt and we go back.

4. He does mornings REALLY WELL. Everyday (mostly) he gets up when I do, sometimes before I do, so that he can make me a smoothie, toast, a yummy lunch, and to warm up my car while I am getting ready. Oh, and he sings to me while doing it all.

5. He is a really nice guy. In the every meaning of the word.

6. He loves nothing more than to make me happy.

7. He was okay with the fact that last night, at 10:30 at night, I bought us two tickets to visit CA next weekend.

8. He tells me everyday how much he loves me and how lucky he is to have me.

9. All of a sudden, the little things in life are really really fun.

10. He is my very best friend, and loves me for who I am and for who we will become together.

I love you Sweetie-Pie!! Come home SOOOOOON! (We are out of ice-cream AND pizza!!! HELP!) :)

The "Fix-It-Up-Chappy"

I have never claimed to be handy, or even knowledgeable when it comes to fixing small repairs. So this weekend, when I hear a powerful gushing of *HOT* water coming from our kitchen sink, I felt fear surge from every part of my body. Seriously. There I was, minding my own business, when the hot water pipe decides to burst and hot water is streaming into our kitchen. LUCKILY, we got an overwhelming supply of towels for our wedding, so I threw those down real fast. The water was faster. I frantically called Christian, demanding him to come home NOW. Like the wonderful, devoted husband he is, he came home. HOWEVER, I still have about a half our to kill before he got there, and our old, funny, incapable landlord above us wasn't home. Not that he would have helped anyways. So what does any newly married girl do? Call their Dad. :) He tells me to go look around the house for the main water shut off. Picture this... this maniac girl, (who decided to work out the other day for the first time in a long time, so she was very sore) running/hobbling all around the exterior of the house in my PJ's turning every nozzle I can find, while talking on my phone. So after about 10 minutes of that, and realizing that, no, I can't fix anything on my own, I decide that I need to move ALL of the furniture in our kitchen, as to keep in away from the massive amounts of water that is now filling up most of our kitchen.
I can't do much, but I can move food. By the time this was done, my hero came home, turned off the water (by this time, it had turned cold), and began to clean it all up. While I watched and just LAUGHED. Because by this point I realised that the whole situation was pretty amusing. Christian then fixed the busted tube as I went shopping. Then he put everything back and cleaned it all up, while I slept in the next morning.

Love that guy.

oh p.s. I had JUST cleaned out house, moment before the geyser. MOMENTS. SCRUBBED.
