What can be said about nine years married to this guy? It has had its ups and downs, and I've grown up plenty since 23. In the end, I don't have more fun with anyone else, and I really respect his views on the world. He's also the most decent person I've ever known. If something needs doing, it just gets done. There's no whining, no putting off, no excuses. Our lawns get mowed, our cars get serviced, the Christmas lights come down quickly -- you'll never hear me say, "I can't believe he hasn't (fill in the blank) yet!" If he was a redneck, his motto would be, "Git r done." I appreciate the heck out of that, and I try to tell him often.
Wow, he was just now reading my blog, and was amused by the "he's worth keeping around for his bbq abilities" comment a few posts ago. He so rarely reads me -- nice to know he's caught up.
