August 11 was my first official day of work at the new school. I had been up there for several days before that getting my room ready. I spent well over 8 hours a day working on it and so much money buying new things because it had been a while since I had a fresh start. I left work last Friday so exhausted from all my prep work getting ready for the first week of school. When I got home I was surprised with a spotless house. Candied Jansen had taken care of much of the cleaning herself and then hired someone to come do the deep cleaning. She knew I was starting to get busy and she knew it would show love to me. I was so surprised and happy at her thoughtfulness! She had also done some organizing of closets and bought me an amazing shoe rack because she knew I was complaining of having so many of my shoes encroaching on the open floor space in my closet. She’s also given me amazing foot rubs since I’ve been back at work because she sees me limping around from being on my feet all day. AND she even painted my toenails for me one evening! I seriously have the best wife ever!
And speaking of my wife, I mentioned her job was on the line the last time I wrote. Well, we are happy to report that she was given a position on the first day positions were being offered! I was so excited and happy for her! I know she loves the company she works for and is an extremely loyal employee. I was so glad that they saw that part of her as well and knew she would do a good job for them! Hopefully there won’t be any more layoffs any time soon! They are way too stressful!!
And did I mention what an awesome wife I have?? I love that she misses me when I’m gone and shows me that she needs me. I love that we work well together and that we are always laughing. I love that she is inappropriate and irreverent at times. I love that those who are lucky to be called her friends know just how much they mean to her. I love her! We’ve been married for 6 1/2 months and together for 2 1/2 years and I am more in love with her every day!
