Brett is back to working in the office four days a week, and I’m thinking that’s going to be his excuse for not getting his sperm checked. He’s “cute” like that. 😀

But also, while I’m at it, I should take a minute to brag on him a bit even though what I really want right now is a nap–

My husband is truly incredible. As I mentioned in my last post…all of like five minutes ago- he’s lost 25lbs! And even though I really want to hate him for it, I just can’t. I’m so happy for him! I want to say I’m proud of him because I have a problem with that word. I don’t think I have the right to be proud of other people. Pride is something you take in the things YOU do. I will be proud of my children, but I can’t be proud of my husband. He’s the one making the choices. He is CHOOSING hard boiled eggs and cottage cheese over fast food and chips. He is CHOOSING to be more active; to go places and do things rather than veg on the couch.

He’s pretty awesome, in every sense of the word. I am in awe of his patience, passion, compassion, willingness to try new things, ability to love me even when I’m hardly lovable. He is caring, loving, affectionate and always striving to improve.

After my first marriage I wrote a list of requirements should I ever get married again. The list consisted of 20 traits I thought would make up the person I wanted to be with.

I recently re-read that list and am happy to report that Brett is 18 of the 20. He truly is my perfect match. He is what I knew I wanted and needed years before I ever met him.

Not only do I LOVE him, but I appreciate all of who he is and am so grateful that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.
