Wives, you might want to call your husbands and let them read this. Then you can all sit down together and feel sorry for me.
Our anniversary is tomorrow. I mentioned earlier that we usually don’t get each other gifts for birthdays, anniversary, Christmas . . we pretty much get what we need when we need it. But, I had gotten Vince the Kindle. He was out of town this week so I figured he would want to take it with him. I was wrong. He left it at home. Did I mention that I doubted he would use it?
I believe he felt bad so he bought me a gift while he was out of town. He even called to tell me he had bought me a surprise but he wouldn’t tell me what it was. He came in yesterday evening with a big box. I ruled out diamonds right off the bat because . . well, the box was big and Vince isn’t the type to put a little box inside a bigger box inside a bigger box. He made me close my eyes while he opened it and then he made the presentation.
A new weed eater! Yep, and it’s lime green. What more could a girl ask for on her anniversary? Want me to make a list?
If any of you husbands out there need help with gift ideas for your wife, do not ask Vince for advice!
Seriously, I’m thrilled with the new weed eater. For some reason, Vince just cannot do a good job edging and I’d rather do it myself. I have an older battery operated weed eater but it uses NiCad batteries and they don’t last very long. The new one has lithium batteries and I think I’ll be able to do my whole back sidewalk with both fully charged batteries. That was about a 6 day job with the old edger because I’d run down the two charged batteries, let them charge 24 hours, run them down . . I have more than 2 batteries but only had 2 chargers.
So, don’t be sad . . I’m really happy about my new lime green edger. What I’m not happy about is that someone put that blasted sidewalk all the way around the side and back of my house. Between that, the front sidewalk, the driveway . . too much edging! Don’t suggest Round-Up! If I’m not happy with the way Vince edges, you know I wouldn’t be happy with Round-Up.
