We have had a rough couple months 'round here--especially the last two weeks. You may have noticed a lack of big projects here lately. My handyman and the muscles of the operation, Chris, has been working extremely late at his job launching an entirely new website. Last night he strolled home around 2am and he was out the door this morning at 7. I can tell he is tired. Taking care of Greta by my lonesome 24/7 has also been pretty taxing and throw in some health issues that showed up on my part--we are kind of a wreck.
While my health may take a little bit to get back on track, Chris should be wrapping up his company's new website today. Woot. In the meantime, through all the long days away from each other--we happened to both get each other a little something to let the other know--you're on my mind. Cue the "ahhh"s or maybe you are rolling your eyes. Ha! Either way, you should know that Chris has only given me flowers one other time in our relationship and that was back in '08.
These beauties arrived yesterday via delivery boy. I was so shocked and my exhausted, sad tears quickly turned to beyond-delighted tears. There was a little note that said, "Hope your day gets better." And it did.
Having fresh flowers in the house really livens the place up. My just-because-gift for Chris was a little less traditional. A scalp massager:
It was less than $5 on Amazon and one of those things that when I saw it, I thought, "Chris would love that thing." So I ordered it and it came on the perfect day. Have you ever tried it? Ah. Maze. Zing.
The two are kind of a silly pair, but so are we. Anyone else work like a maniac? How do you balance your relationship? Give any romantic or silly just-because gifts?
Psst. I have been working a special project for all of y-o-u behind the scenes. Look forward to the big reveal real soon.
