I know I boast a lot about the KoD, but people, the truth is that he is totally awesome! I tweeted today that he brought me coffee and Aleve and helped with the laundry. @TheJackB tweeted back “tell him to stop making the rest of us look bad. 😉 ” Jack – he does dishes too!
I totally know how blessed and lucky I am, and I do not take him for granted, not one little bit. Not only is he helpful with laundry and bringing me coffee and a whole host of other things, he has great ideas too.
Now this one seems so obvious to me, looking back, but I guess we get so used to doing things a certain way, that change is not seen as necessary or even possible. I guess KoD got a little fed up hearing me complain about folding the laundry, and how Mount Washmore always kept growing, and just when I thought I had finished doing laundry, the pile reproduced. (Four boys in the house means a lot of laundry). He suggested that each child fold their own laundry and put it away themselves. Sounds simple, eh? So why didn’t I think of it first?!!
Today, being the day after the fast of Tisha b’Av, I had 10 loads of laundry to do. We traditionally do not launder clothes for this nine day mourning period, and can recommence after lunchtime on the day after Tisha b’Av. I actually had time to rest my aching back in between loads, because 2/3 of the laundry was being folded by other people. What a concept!! KoD – you are a smart smart man, and not just ‘cause you married me. 😉
Sometimes it takes someone fresh to the scene to have great ideas – keep them coming, my KoD. Thanks for taking such good care of us all. We love you.
