As for my Five today, I usually don't have a theme to this post as I use it to get the randoms off my mind, but today is different. Since it is Valentine's Day, I want to share 5 things I love about my Valentine, my sweet, sweet hubby.
1. Danny is one of the hardest workers I know. As a firefighter, he only works 9 or 10 days a month, but they are 24 hour shifts. That comes out to about 1/3 of the month. It is rare that he spends any of the other 2/3 of the month just relaxing. Especially now that he is doing the stay at home dad thing on his days off. Whether he is working at the local feed store, working at his 4th job, taking care of Tucker, or piddling around the house, he is always doing something. I have to practically beg him to sit down and relax. I do it for his sanity, as well as to make me feel like less of a bum :). He also thinks sleeping in means sleeping until 8:30. This was pre-Tucker.
3. He is kind of like a little kid. When we were dating, we always said we would have a monkey bathroom when we moved in together. Well, when he moved into my dads house after he passed away, he wanted a monkey bathroom. I asked him what color he wanted the walls. His response: "Yellow, but not just any yellow, banana yellow" So, at 21 years old, we had a monkey bathroom. He also couldn't open his fire station Lego set quick enough that following Christmas.
|Different Christmas, but I gave him this early. He felt jipped on gifts to open, so I had to wrap the box. He also got a remote control truck that year.|
4. He talks about winning the lottery almost daily. He can tell you how much the winnings are, how much we would get after taxes (because he would OBVIOUSLY take the one time payment), and how much we could spend every year. Then he follows up with how we would spend our millions. Its almost the same list of dreams every single time. House in Michigan for him, house in Orange Beach for me, bigger house here at home, a boat, camper, cabin out in the woods, a mini cow farm, new wheels for both of us, and all kinds of stuff. The best part, he always includes "we would donate a lot of it." He's the best!
5. I can count on him for anything. If something needs fixed or I have a random ass question, he's the first person I go to. If he doesn't have an answer or know how to do it, he will figure out how or tell me who can. When I have a random question about something, 9 times out of 10 I will ask him first rather than Google. Whatever he says, I believe. He could probably tell me the sky is green and grass is really blue and I would believe it. He knows it too, and that's why he only jokingly tells me the wrong answer every once in a while :)
