Why I Love My Husband (3)
He's the complete opposite of me! ;)
No, really, he is. I am the laziest person I know, but Boomz is driven and determined. For example, this past weekend, we had to transport mattresses to a friend's house 2.5 hours away (long story lol), and after renting the U.Haul trailer didn't work out, having to wait a week, and a mattress flying off the back of the truck we rented, he didn't get that frustrated. I would have just given up or started crying or something. lol But not my husband! :) Once he gets an idea in his head he doesn't give up when things get hard, and I really appreciate that about him. :)
He listens to all of my silly stories. :) While I clean I listen to Catholic things on my laptop (usually Church history stuff), so when he comes home I have SO MUCH to tell him! He listens patiently, even though he probably knows everything I'm telling him.
He pushes me to try new things. I'm a very picky eater (mostly about texture), and if I had my way I'd eat the same three things my whole life. lol Now he has me eating calamari, lamb, and all sorts of Italian things I would've never had in my German-Irish hometown. :) He also believes in me enough to allow me to COOK some of these Italian things, even though I'm convinced I'll ruin it.
I love that he's Italian but loves Irish culture. :) He studied abroad in Ireland for a few months, so he loves all things TRULY Irish. No shamrocks for my man! He also hates Guinne.ss not brewed in Ireland-he's convinced it tastes different. lol
Thank you, Jesus, for giving me such a wonderful husband! :)
P.S. Thank you all so much for the exercise suggestions! I found a beginner Pilates video online, and I've tried that a couple times. I must be in horrible shape, because the video is kicking my butt! lol I mean I only do about 15- 20 minutes, and I am SORE the next day! I can't lose any weight, however (I'm already way under where I should be), so I have to up my calories. Boo! It's really hard to make yourself eat more when you're already full.
