Keeping the house, the kids and the hubby without breaking the bank, the earth, the people I love, or myself.

Sometimes, Its the Little Things You Do

I try to let my husband know every day that I still adore him. (I do, by the way.) Since he works 12-hour shifts and is gone from home for at least 13 hours a day, I might not get to tell him that he still lights my fire.

Then sometimes, it's just something simple that lets him know I did a little extra just for him. Just 'cause.

When hubby told me that he noticed a lot of the guys at work had the same sandwich bags we do, I knew I had to act. I wouldn't want hubby's lunch getting mixed up with anyone else's. Thus, I let him know that I care that his belly gets filled while he's out there working his fingers to the bone for us.

And how does one do that?

I think a picture tells the story best:


I suppose you want to know his reaction to this. It was a tickle and a "you think you're funny." Ha ha ha haha hahaha! Not he thinks I'm funny. I think I'm funny.

And I do. I giggled all evening.

About Me

I am a happily married woman with four children and various cats and kittens (fosters). I love to read and my favourite authors are George RR Martin, Thomas Hardy, Raymond Carver, PD James, Kurt Vonnegut, J. K. Rowling, and Margaret Atwood. I know there are only three women in that list (and none of them American), so if you'd like to suggest some I'm willing to give them a shot! And yes, I am an American living in Canada. (Hence the nick -- CannedAm.) I like it here. There are things about the states that I miss, but my love is here and this country has things to offer that my own does not. Things that make my quality of life much better than it ever was in Ohio. Guess I'm stuck here. Though there's a nice spot in the Appalachian hills where I'd love to spend my retirement.
