We have been together for 20 years, the Hubs and I, and not once have I pondered about being with another man. Despite his boarding school rigidness and family imperfections, he is the greatest thing in my world. Although he represents the hard decisions in our home, he is also big enough to work for us, fill up my petrol for me every single week, check my tyres and load my Touch & Go whenever he knows I am about to drive a fair bit, tracks my whereabouts with his phone app, and spends ALL his weekends and evenings with us at home. People tease him that he has no friends, no life, but he just chooses to be with us instead because we are his priority. We have so many haters I am sure, but hello, I chose him. People say he must be boring because he seldom talks to others (as he is a people repeller like me) but little do they know what a riot he is with us at home. He is crazy funny with us at home!
During the weekends, he does all the cooking, driving, washing up, basically EVERYTHING so I do not have to lift a finger. He understands that I do everything during the week already with the kids so the weekends and evenings are officially my off days. And now, he is quitting his job to take care of me FULL TIME. How bloody awesome is that. I am so darn lucky.
And I will admit that I really felt his love when his company offered him a double deal to stay on and he declined. They made him the offer to solve all his problems and in a way, we felt bad too because here they were being so kind to us, and here we were, not accommodating them. I was terrified that the Hubs would be drawn back for so much money but so glad he stood his ground. He did it for me and it showed me that he really knew what was important. Our lives are important. All the money in the world was not going to make us happier and happier. We are already happy. It is time together that we want. So in exactly 1 week, we will see my new house husband at home God only knows doing what. It would be weird!
But having him home would be great as it would give me an extra brain to bounce my ideas off with. I would build the greatest company to date because I can. The girls are not happy about him being home because they think that they would have less money to spend without Daddy’s salary and that he would no longer be the boss of his work place. How innocent the eyes of children are. Truth be told, I think they are just worried that he will be home to nag them about their homework and school work and to cut their TV and phone time LOL.
I am so happy I chose my yin to my yang. The guy who is always thinking of my Mom and suggesting that we go visit Nana this weekend and every other weekend. He truly is our everything as we are his everything. He takes such good care of my 2 monkeys, teaching them about science and how things work. Whenever T1 asks me questions, I would just act dumb all the time because I am too lazy to answer her so the Hubs gets all the credit about being the smart one. Do I care? Not one bit. They can think Mommy is the dumb blonde but truly they don’t because they have seen how amazing Mommy can be too. Haha.
We are really blessed. Thank you, Universe.
Updates – He changed his mind!!!!! Blablablabla….. My Mom always told me not to open my big mouth whenever something good happened as I would jinx it and I have done exactly that. Blablablabla……
I am furious but trying to come to acceptance.
