The Corvette, a dream of many young folk
Awwwwww, I love you guys and the comments. I got a smile from many about the ‘Unnecessary tasks’. Of course there have been times our bed wasn’t made. BUT the biggest kick was out of Betty’s comment about the sheet washing day, she said, ‘I tell the hubby don’t make the bed I am washing sheets today.’
Sherry tells me the exact thing, and most of the time it is the night before and ‘jack forgets’. Then when she looks back and sees the bed made she says AGAIN, “I told you!” LOL. Sometimes she says I will do it tomorrow and adds, “REMEMBER in the morning…….” Then I usually remember.
I honestly try to share the load, but I must admit, it has not always been so. I once blogged about what I called my ‘Epiphany’. Meaning to me:
..Unusually sudden perception of the real meaning of our marriage.
That time it hit me just how important Sherry is in my life. I thought I had always appreciated her, and I had. But when the full weight of what she is in my life hit me, I was humbled. This was to me. I will not cover it again, but needless to say from that moment on I have tried to make her life as ‘sweet’ as I could, because I realized now that she IS my life. We are not just a team, but one.
We have our favorite meals, She likes my chicken, rice, carrots and peas meal (which is today). Yesterday we about finished her super meal, fish soup. I love it.
We always walk holding hands, earlier today a lady slowed on her bike to comment, ‘How romantic.’ We actually hear that (or similar) often.

I joke with Sherry because she always answers with something like, “I’m just afraid I will fall.” I always chide her, ‘don’t ruin their perception, tell ‘em you love me, they think you do’ and we get a good laugh.
PS: The incident we laugh about happened in Rondout Valley, NY. A guy slowed down in his car rolled down the window and said, “Get a motel room!” then drove off laughing.
