Vince can aggravate the heck out of me and I’m sure I do the same to him – probably worse. But, he has a softer side that most never see.
I may have mentioned that yesterday I got a flu shot and my second pneumonia vaccine. I knew I would feel bad or a day or two and decided it was better to feel bad in MO where I don’t have so much to get done, than to feel bad in TX where we’re going to be working non-stop for the next few weeks.
Addie was going back home yesterday afternoon so yesterday morning was a good time to get those vaccines, but least night, I felt bad and probably had a bit of fever when I went to bed. I was freezing! We had five quilts on the bed. Vince was covered with only the sheet, I was under all five quilts and still shivering. I knew he wasn’t asleep yet so I asked him if I could put my freezing feet on him. He’s always so warm! He said “You don’t even have to ask! You know you can do it!” I felt like it would be kinda rude to put my ice cold feet on him without him knowing that was coming. I told him thanks . . and then he said “You know I’ll always keep you safe and warm!” As bad as I felt, that was about all I needed to get the tears flowing. I tried to sniffle in silence because Vince would have thought he’d hurt my feelings if he knew there were tears.
I still don’t feel 100% great today but I feel much better than I felt last night. Vince is hanging around with the tree guys this morning. He wants to go to Walmart and get a few things this afternoon but I’ll stay home. Today is the perfect day for knitting. It’s gorgeous outside . . and cool! It was 63 in the house when we woke up this morning. I’ll never complain about that kind of weather.
