guilty as charged.

So, yes. 

I am shamefully guilty of getting so completely wrapped up in the drama of my life that I sometimes forget that the mister has challenges.  and struggles.  and frustrations.

You see, he has been traveling an awful lot as of late.  I am bone tired at the end of each day and miss having a warm body to cuddle up to during an episode of FNL. (say FNL fast and try not to laugh.)  Feeling as though I am taking on the world and conquering everything (while the mister is lounging at a hotel far away) is a slippery slope.  My man works hard and every once in a while I need to remind myself that without him I would not be able to mother my three boys full time.

And even when I am selfish, he goes and cleans the vacuum.  Who cleans the vacuum?  Wha?  I'm the OCD one here.  And leaves a fun little note on my mirror.  He's a keeper.

P.S. did you make any goals for the new year?

Skip on over to Design Mom where I share my list of 2012 goals.  One being expect less and give more.  Looks like I will have ample opportunities to do that, huh?  What is the universe telling me...


  1. Sweet :) I'm so guilty of the same things with my husband! It's not easy being the one to stay home OR the one to work outside the home. Hope you both get a break from the hectic pace soon!

    1. Glad I am not the only one who falls prey to the selfish monster. And this mama just needs a vacation. Stat!

  2. Molly, I don't even had kids yet and I am probably one of the biggest offenders! Thank you for posting this and reminding me to give my husband a big fat kiss when he comes home tonight!

  3. I swear I say this every time I comment but I cannot believe how similar our lives are. My husband has been traveling a lot lately as well and by the time he gets home, I'm done being Mom and I don't want to be Wife, either. This last time he went out of town I wrote a bunch of quick notes ("I love your strong arms" etc.) and put them in the pockets of his clothes that were packed in his suitcase. I was so excited for him to find them and read them, and I feel like it made a real difference for when he came home. I was more excited to see him and less ready to leave the house to do something (anything) alone.

    1. Such a sweet idea :) I'll have to do that next time!

  4. So adorable! I love this. Now that is a man :)

  5. Cleaning the vaccuum is pretty dang romantic!!!! I love it!

  6. I hear ya! Sometimes it can be so hard to drag yourself out of the hussle and bussle of life to remember the crazy life of loved ones. However, when you do snap back into reality, it can be one of the most amazing feelings. Wishing you and your hubby a wonderful VDay filled with love, cuddling, and relaxation.
