day 12 Nice to my hubby

Pack my hubby lunch.

Action done on 12-8

What you need to know:
My hubby is a wonderful man. There's a reason why I married him. He is always placing me and our daughter above his needs.

We've been together for 8 and half years now.

I don't pack his lunch in the morning.

Here's the thing, I didn't know that was something women did. I assumed, "he's a grown man, he's got a job, and a college degree, he can put his own food in a bag." What I didn't know was every other man at work, had his wife pack him lunch.
Jim brought this to my attention a few years ago.
I made his lunch for about a three days.
Then I stopped.

This was my logic:
1) He gets up at 4 am.
2) I don't know if he's planning on packing lunch or buying it.
3) I'm not sure what he would like.
4) He's a big boy and he can put his own food in a bag.
5) HE GETS UP AT 4 AM!!!!!!

He got up at 4 am.
I was awake. Below was my internal debate:

I don't want to get out of bed. No. I'm not getting up. Ugh, all I have to do is move. I don't want to move. The air is cold and the bed is warm. Nope I'm not leaving. The difference between an A student and a C student is the A student does the work, crap that was what I was going to tell my students today in class. Ok get up. You can't lecture your students if you can't get out of bed and make your husband breakfast. 4:25 CRAP. I spent 25 minutes debating if I should get out of bed. I could have been OUT of bed or sleeping. MMMM sleeping is nice. But really what are the odds of me falling a sleep. Not much.

I got out of bed. I walked down stairs and I made my hubby breakfast, lunch and a snack. now when I say I made him breakfast, lunch and a snack, I mean I went to the freezer pulled out some stuff, placed it on the counter neatly.
I didn't cook anything.
BUT I did leave him a note. "I love you, you're my best friend and best husband." He's my only husband... but there is that guy out in Utah.... Just kidding.


I went back to bed. Hubby was still in the bathroom and was completly unaware I had done this. He kissed me goodbye and went down stairs. He came back up, kissed me again said,"thank you."

Would I do it again?
Sure. He's a good guy and I like him.
How much did it cost me? Nothing
How much time did it take? twenty five minutes of mental debating and five minutes to make it.
How much effort? Not much, but I knew as soon as I did it he would ask, "So are you going to do this for me every day?"
He did by the way... while we were eating dinner.


  1. so you are saying your husband is a stranger?? don't worry I don't pack my hubby lunch. you are good for getting up that early to do that!

  2. Brrr! Getting out of bed at 4AM in the morning? That's true love right there!

  3. Your love for Jim knows no boundaries!! :)
