Why I Love Skywalker

I haven't been able to do a lot of the stuff I normally do lately. Sundays, the house tends to get messy whether I'm incapacitated or not... I admit I treat Sunday as a true day of "rest," we take it easy after church, get laid-back, I don't nag my kids to clean their messes the way they usually do. SO on Mondays, usually I have a bit of a disaster to clean up after. But, like I said, I haven't been able to do a lot of those things latley... big belly, sciatic nerves, hard to walk, need to lay down after short sessions of activity.

This is what I woke up to this (Monday) morning, traditionally my worst cleaning morning of the week:

Yeah, to some of you neatniks out there, this probably looks messy. But let me say, this is as clean as the house EVER gets. And it's not an easy feat to accomplish, getting it this clean. So kudos to skywalker... a demonstration of love far better than chocolate or roses.

I almost laughed out loud when I saw that picture of the clean sink. I don't know if I've EVER seen that sink empty of dishes. :-)

so where in the world did you get the big belly you talk about, and david l shouldn't tease you about the first time he has ever seen the sink empyty of dishes, that was just plain rude and i can't tolerate rude behaviour in any man>>>.from lonesom,e dove, my favorite show of i think almost all time

This is a great post. A couple of friends and I were talking about what is and what isn't romantic, and we all agreed that the roses and chocolate weren't nearly as impressive as these sometimes small but very significant acts of service. It's easier to buy a box of chocolates than to do what your husband did, AND it demonstrates love, sweet love.
