The Good and The Not so Good

No, this is not my husband!! But, this post is about my husband.
The good and the bad parts.
First the good:

Last Sunday night my husband took me to see the amazing Harry Connick Jr. in concert for our 21 Anniversary. It was a total surprise, especially with the economy the way it is. But, he was being romantic. How sweet!! This wasn't our first time seeing Harry. Our first time seeing Harry was B.C. (before children) or, 17 years ago. He was at the height of his fame and fabulous. The best concert I'd ever seen. Well, this last Sunday was a special day. First, the super professional Harry delayed the concert 15 minutes because of a football game. Yes, you heard me right. He said he'd never delayed a concert in his life and that he'd been performing since he was 5. It was the New Orleans Saints playing for a spot in the Super Bowl, so it's understandable. Well, lets just say it was probably the best concert I've ever seen. If you ever get the chance to see him live, GO!!!
Now the bad part....
This past weekend, my husband compared me to other women. I don't mean physically.
He said things like: "so and so's husband doesn't have to do this", or
"when I was a kid our house didn't look like this." Ugh!!!
Don't get me wrong, he's usually REALLY supportive and he's the best daddy ever but geez, those were mean things to say!
I thought about what he said and realized why his life wasn't like others.
While I love those women, they don't have any interests except housework. Which is o.k, if that's what you want to do. I'm not judging. Each to his own, I say.
I told him that he loves me because I have hobbies and interests and am outspoken.
He agreed and apologized.
Lucky for him!! LOL
Hope I didn't bore you too much. I've got lots of swap pictures coming and I'm going to be entering the OWOH (One World One Heart) Giveaway tomorrow and will post a picture of my prize. So stay tuned. :-)

Don't feel bad, I am like you. My mother did no crafts or art, just cleaned, how boring. I on the other hand have to slide things down my table in order to eat dinner. Most of the time my husband is very supportive, but sometimes I hear little things to. I have learned to ignore him. Ha Ha. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Cari -

I am just reading this post now. I'm sorry about your hubby sometimes. I do understand, unfortunately. :( I'm happy that you have other interests, though. They are wonderful and special - don't give them up, ever! :)
