It is the stereotype that women tend to be stimulated by words and ideas. In my case, it is a valid assessment, which is why my husband has written me love notes saying things like…
“Unwavering and unquestionable, with every fibre it rings true. Both now and forever my Fox, I will love you…” Aaaaahhhhh…
It is also the stereotype (and true of my husband) that men tend to be more visually stimulated, hence (I believe) the reason he keeps telling me to take “pictures of myself” doing “stuff” so he can “use them” when he is out-of-town sitting all alone in a hotel room somewhere. And who am I to not give my husband what he wants?
So here you go dear, Happy Valentine’s Day…
First picture of me doing “stuff”: I had to go to Michael’s today to get a few things to make something as part of this gift. I may have also stopped by Winners to look for some new jeans. What, you want me wearing track pants everywhere I go?
Second picture of me doing “stuff”: Here I am in the car making a cute heart symbol with my fingers. How thoughtful and sweet am I?
Third picture of me doing “stuff”: Here I am – after my little shopping trip – laying on the couch in my housecoat with Cleo on my lap because that’s what I do all day when you are at work. Oh God, did I have a headache. It must’ve been the chocolate pudding I had for lunch. Sugar does that to me sometimes.
Fourth picture of me doing “stuff”: Here I am doing the dishes – what else is new? – while wearing a scarf. I don’t know why you set the thermostat to 18 degrees during the day. It’s almost as cold inside as it is outside.
Fifth picture of me doing “stuff”: Here is the product of all my hard work. Clearly, I’m not naked behind the sign, but you can imagine that I am, right? With how needy our three children are, you have to imagine it most of the time anyway. You are probably pretty good at it by now.
Sixth picture, not of me doing “stuff” but of something: It could be worse. I could be this guy. Source: forum.santabanta.com.
Seventh picture of me doing “stuff”: OK, here I am in my new dress – the one you helped me pick out (along with Madame Seashells) – waiting to go out to dinner to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Now, I’m not saying that it is going to be tonight, because in our house, things never work the way they are supposed to, but it will be soon. Before NEXT Valentine’s Day for sure.
Happy Heart Day! I love you, dear – XO.
