I have embraced the fact that I am spending the weekend before Christmas in Buffalo. I have even embraced the fact that the reason I am going to Buffalo is to see a football game.
However, as of last night, I had not embraced the fact that Mike wants to leave tonight for Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, to meet up with friends before meeting the bus that will take us to Buffalo tomorrow morning.
Mike assured me that he would do whatever needed to be done so that I felt alright in leaving the house tonight.
And thus, this morning I created the 'Honey Do It Now List'.
This is what I left for him on the kitchen counter this morning:
1. Laundry - finish the last load, pseudo fold it, and put it all away
2. Sweep entire house (start at the top and make your way down the stairs)
3. Go to post office and mail Christmas presents to Florida and Massachusetts
5. Buy your wife diamonds
I felt better knowing that he was taking care of these things. And not one bit guilty and demanding all of it be done by the time I got home from work.
I didn't even feel guilty about number 5 on my list.
