Just One More Reason...


Here's one more reason that I love my wife.....

No HONEY DO's..!
A few weeks ago, my lovely, sexy and loving wife, cleaned out our "back room."

We call it our back room because it's in the back of the house. It's all ours..!

In it is our computer, a recliner, a desk, file cabinet, and built-in bookshelves; that hold Mrs. Prag's books, CD's, a growing collection of DVD's, knick-knacks and pictures.

It was the last of the dreaded "end-of-summer-cleaning" projects on her list...and she did her usual fantastic job..!

My stuff...got boxed, bagged, and deposited in our bedroom..!

"I put it in there until you have a chance to go through it all, and see what you want to keep." She said, as she collapsed into the recliner upon completion.

And there it sat...for the past two weekends..!

Even though my back is still "biting" me, a little...but not having any plans for today...and it being a "kid-at-home" weekend...I started on the "pile," as it's become known, just before noon.

I did manage to get through it all and toss out about a half-a-big-garbage-bag of old papers...but not wanting to rush things, it did take me until about 6 pm.

There were work-related items...old photographs, picture frames, and a scrapbook...an electric drill and some bits...a bunch of paperwork from my divorce...a VCR ("why do you need two of them in here?" )...old magazines...unused pads and notebooks...enough phone, Cat5, and audio cables to re-wire 10 computers...and about 50 3 1/2" floppy disks..!

I managed to throw out, pack up, and put away everything...except the floppies.

When we got this new computer about a year and a half ago, I spent a lot of time looking through the floppies...burning CD's of thing's I wanted to keep...and loading it into this computer (it doesn't have a 3 1/2" port).

As there were twice as many floppies as I recall having looked through, I figured I better look at all of them again.

So, out came my lap-top...and my 1/2 Gig memory stick, and I went through them all..!

I only found two disks that had files on them that I wanted to keep, and as long as I was going through all of the trouble to do it again, I erased all of the disks as I was done with them (no telling if I'll even be able to find a computer with a 3 1/2" port in the future).

I don't mind doing "housework" to help out or take care of "my stuff," and I appreciate the fact that the love of my life doesn't use the "Honey Do" sort of mentality to get me to do things.

Just one more reason I love her so.

Thanks, mda..!

We both knew what we wanted in a relationship...it just took us most of our lives to find the right person to have it with...each other..!

Next time you have some free time you can come over here, I'll give you a "honey do" list about as long as your arm!!!

As soon as I get a copy of a 2055 calendar and see what I'm doing, I'll be there..! *I would've been 100 years old, then.*

LOL I have my work cut out for me when our renovations are done! I will end up doing it all alone too!

I'll have a cafe, mocha, vodka, valium latte to go please!

Good girls go to heaven.....bad girls go down!!
