I am not a wifey. I have opinions and speak my mind. The trick is to speak with great respect. I am always working on that as you all know. We are equals and yet, Jack does have the final say. I am proud to say that I am his starter wife, the one and only wife, the first wife! However, I am not a wifey.
We all enjoyed Rosie's post about how she and her husband make their way in ttwd. I think we bloggers learn from one another. I took something that Rosie said to heart. I am giving it a try. If I am home when Jack comes home, I am now greeting him at the garage door, lipsticked, hair fixed and a smile on my face. He loves it. Now I have done this before, but just not consistently.
This afternoon we had one of those golden spring-like afternoons. Jack played golf and when he had finished his round, he text me this....... " I am headed home to you, the hot tub and cocktails in that order". So I quickly got myself ready and met him as the car entered the garage. He loved it. Tousling my hair, noticing my lipstick, he came in to play and play we did.
He has said this morning that the slate was clean; the score card erased as he had spanked me for being a little too bossy. I loved it. To have a warm bottom to start the day is a ttwd wife's secret. I had a great day working through errands.
I thanked him for taking such good care of me........... and he thanked me for greeting him this afternoon in a loving way.
So this blogger is a learner taking to heart what her guest blogger had to say to her readers. Rosie, I am following your lead. I am greeting Jack each and every time he comes home.
Let's make it a blogland challenge that we each greet our men when they return home with kisses and, of course, lipstick!
Let's report back to see how things are going at that entry point in our homes. Okay?
