Writing About: being a great spouse and an even better human being (my wife, not me)
I am pretty sure blogging, for anyone, is in some way tied to an overinflated view of self.
The whole idea is at least a little bit egotistical.
Like, I have something to say…something you will want to read.
Oh, and by the way a lot of what I have to say will be about me.
In 15 weekly(ish) posts, my wife has probably only been mentioned once.
(The hero of Unlikely Foster Parents Part One )
This is, of course, the most popular post I have made.
In second, the one about Turkey Love, just kidding. No one liked that one.
Anyway. I started a draft about my wife three weeks ago,
and it seems appropriate to finish it it now.
Yeah, I know it’s Christmas, but I have been locked down in a flu Quarantine for 3 days, so whatever.
Don’t Cross Les
That (above) was most of the unpublished draft…
since I wrote that we have had some problems with our insurance policy.
Leslie has been on the phone relentlessly, making it right.
She will not give up.
When we were having so many seemingly interconnected health problems with Mae
But had no good overarching diagnosis.
Leslie trusted her instinct and kept pushing until we had a diagnosis that fit.
That is no exaggeration.
Leslie is responsible for what we know about Mae.
You all thought she was timid.
Last week Les and I went to a Christmas part where we recreated a photo from our past.
We chose to recreate our prom photo.
15 years after the fact, Leslie wore the same dress, and ROCKED IT.
I, on the other hand, turned into a goofy pot bellied version of my dad.
Best Wife Ever.
No go back to pretending to be Santa Clause while I wait for my wife to be done taking care of our girls so we can celebrate together, some other day.
