A Little Rave About the Hubby
I wanted to rave a little bit about the hubby today. For the past year, I have not worked (a first, since I have always worked full time since I was 16) and we have been getting by on hubby's pensions. I feel a bit bad about not working, like I am not contributing as I should be and as I always have during our entire marriage, but hubby seems fine with me not working and hasn't mentioned a thing about me getting a job. Anyway, today I really needed to get my gifts bought and sent to Japan but I have very little money and I knew this was going to be an expensive proposition (and I was right, the gifts were $250 and the shipping was $100!) so I told hubby I needed $350 out of our spending money for gifts and he gave it to me, just like that. No questions asked. Although he knew it was for the gifts, he made no comment about how expensive this was going to be, just a "here is the money go get it done". I felt so guilty taking such a big chunk of our spending money and I know we will have very little to spend until the 1st but this was really important to me (mostly because my friends were super generous to me when I was there in Japan this past fall). So in short I am thankful for the hubby's generosity and how supportive he is of what is important to me.
