The Husbandfiles: Good days and bad days


There are good days and there are bad days. Some days you may come home from work and the dishes will be dirty and the laundry unfolded. Your wife will grumble a greeting at you as she walks by, still in her pajamas. There will be no dinner cooked and you will have to walk on tiptoes because the bebe, who was a grouchy little teething monster all day, has finally fallen asleep.

Also, no one will be able to find the external hard-drive, which you need for work.

Also, the curtains will fall off the wall, rod and all.

And you, tired from work and tired from sitting in traffic, and hungry from forgetting to take a lunch and sleep deprived from the odd hours the baby has been keeping lately- you will smile and take your wife in your arms and hold her, and tell her it's alright to have a lousy day, and you will tell her to get dressed because it's been a while since we went out for dinner.

And you will joke and make your wife laugh, and tell her to hurry up and NOT iron her clothes, and you will pile everyone into the car, wrinkles and all, and drive to a posh Irani buffet and have a fantastic time putting a massive dent in the barbeque and dessert tables.

And you will drive home and do the dishes as your wife hangs laundry, and you will pray and go to bed. And that will have been a very good day.

I love you HF.

Let's all say "Ahhhhhh" together. Wasn't that precious.
Glad to hear you are all taking care of each other... except that babeface.. what a major slacker and disrupter!!! Threaten to give him a time out, ground him to his bedroom for life and take away the car keys. That should scare him.

as salaamu `alaykum you :)

Sorry I have been so... gone! I've just felt very overwhelmed by the slightest things and am really trying to quit being such a wuss. Anyway, I really miss you, Owlie and Aunt Carole... I hope you are well and I'll try to stay in better touch in shaa Allah.

a mentor once said to me, when you look for a partner, find someone who forgives and forgets. these are two very important qualities if you want a relationship to last a lifetime.
alas ive yet to find that person.
