Mike has been gone for the last few days playing in a golf tournament. He arrived home tonight bearing gifts for the girls (see pics below). I mentioned to him that it might have been nice of him to bring ME home say- At least a single flower? He claims that he had every intention to buy me something from a shop that they had passed near the resort where he stayed, but the shop was closed when he left the resort today. Well, if I do believe him then I guess it was the thought that counted. I told him that I thought he missed the girls more than me. He said, "You just wait until we have a child." So, I guess it will be child-#1, girl dogs-#2 and Mommy- last place in the race!! This comes from a man who used to make sure that I had fresh flowers at all times, wrote poems for me and put together gift baskets filled with stuff that he knew I would love. He came up with all of those things all on his own. Please tell me what has happened here??
By the way, when he called to tell me that he was on his way home I asked what he might like for dinner. When he arrived home, I was finishing up the fettucine alfredo (made from scratch) topped with fresh sauteed shrimp and hot crusty french loaf bread. What is wrong with that picture? (Disclaimer: Even though this is words of truth, I'm not actually mad:) I mean he is building me a new house after all.)
