That's why I said "I do" . ..
So last night, the girls and I decided to head across town to a Kmart that I thought might have some good Halloween costumes in stock (I decided this year NOT to wait until the week before Halloween and not be able to find anything the girls and I want).
We were having an outstanding time looking through all the cute decorations and accessories (and...very good, and surprising, news was that we found all the costumes for our family. Sydney is Kim Possible--she has been VERY adament that she was going to be KP and nothing was wavering her from that so, thank goodness!, we found a costume that will work--Delaney is Lola from "Hannah Montana" complete with a pink wig, McKenna is a retro witch, I am Little Red Riding Hood, and Gary is the Big Bad Wolf. Yes, Gary and I ALWAYS dress up in matching costumes. It's one of our fun traditions!) And, yes, you have a lot of fun photo posts to look forward to with those costumes! (Whether you want to or not! lol)
So, there we were having a good time, with bags in hand after a successful shopping trip. As I walked out to the car and rummaged through my purse, I realized that my fingers were not finding jingling car keys. And, yep, when we got to the car, there were my keys--sitting in the front seat. Feeling extremely frustrated, I really didn't want to call Gary and tell him what I'd done. But, well, what else could I do? I didn't have a spare, I'm not an expert in breaking into cars, and I personally didn't feel comfortable asking a stranger to help us. So, I called Gary.
And Gary was the sweet, sweet husband that I needed him to be. He left our side of town and made it to the store, even though he had to fight traffic and it took him close to 45 minutes. After an hour of help from two friendly strangers in the parking lot, we got the car open. And the entire time, Gary did it with a smile on his face.
Thank you, Gary, for being such a sweet hubby last night. Thank you also for those little moments in the past week.... sharing a bottle of wine with me, staying up late and watching our DVR-ed shows together, calling me "sweetie," and just generally making me feel loved.
All of you married folks can totally relate to me, I'm sure. There are days and weeks when you can just get sorta frustrated with your spouse; there are some days where I feel like we are just going through the motions. But it always comes back around. And I always know that I have someone there who supports me always and loves me no matter what.
So...let's stop the drivel, I guess, and talk about what's going on this weekend. LOL
We have a busy weekend planned, as usual! To start it off, tonight is a BIG game for our high school football team. We are 6-0 and ranked #8 in the state, and we are playing a 6-0 rival that is ranked #4. The team we're playing also happens to be my alma mater from about an hour away. It's always fun when McKenna's team (and now MY team) plays my old team. It's going to be a very difficult game, but out litlte community is so pumped up about it. Our stadium holds 11,000 and I anticipate that every seat will be full!! Go Hueytown!
Tomorrow, Alabama plays Ole Miss at 11:30 and I will be listening to the the second half of the game while I teach a scrapbook class at my local store. Roll Tide!!!!
Tomorrow also, Delaney will be playing in a softball tournament and I will be running around to try and get to all of the games. The tournament is about 45 minutes away from here and, depending on when her games are scheduled and when my class is over, I will definitely try and get to her games. Go Delaney!
Perhaps the best part of the weekend ahead is the GORGEOUS weather we are having! It's actually supposd to only get up to 75 degrees today and it is just heavenly! The football game should be in the 50s tonight; that's what I call some football weather! I just love it when it feels like this! (Except for it's doing disastrous things to my throat and sinuses. I currently sound like Lauren Bacall, or someone whose smoked too many cigs over the years. Very hoarse!)
What is on your schedule for the weekend? I hope it's a GREAT one!!!
As I leave...here's a fave song right now. Kinda how I feel about that husband of mine.
