Today is a New Day but It’s Still the Same
I’m not going to lie to y’all, or better yet myself. I have completely and totally spoiled my husband.
It‘s now 3:30 in the morning and my 4 o‘clock alarm is due soon. Why do I have an alarm at 4? Because my husband hates his job. You may be asking yourself, “what does that have to do with your alarms?”
Great question! The answer is simple. To make my husband‘s workday easier, I wake up at 4 am, pack him a homemade lunch with lots of snacks, make him a hot breakfast to eat on his first break, make his coffee, fill his water bottle, and warm up the car. All of this gets done before 4:45. Because at that time, I am softly kissing him and waking him up so he can leave for work by 5.
Everyday he goes to work, this is my routine. I can count on one hand the number of times I haven’t done this since we moved in together in January of this year.
Now… you may have asked yourself a couple questions:
1. Why in the world would anyone do all of this?
2. Is she a stay at home wife that doesn’t have a job?
Why in the world would anyone do all of this?
My answer is simple. It makes his morning a little bit easier. I have been at a job that I absolutely hated. It’s a horrible feeling of dread the moment you open your eyes. As a partner and wife, I decided that I would always try to share his burden. And since I can’t/won’t work where he works, I can make sure he is taken care of.
In addition to that, he call and/or FaceTimes me on every break he takes. I love the feeling I get when I see him enjoy something I cook just for him. It’s a wonderful feeling of pride.
Is she a stay at home wife that doesn’t have a job?
No I am not. However, I do have the luxury of being able to work from home since the pandemic forced us to go fully remote. This means I am able to wake up, do my wifey routine, send my hubby off to work, then take my butt back to sleep until it’s time for me to work.
So this is my routine every day that my husband goes to work. Pray for me… I have spoiled my husband.
