This is not new news, nor is it a surprise. But sometimes I forget, and then he just really goes out of his way to show me. A couple things have happened in the last few days, and I'm just feeling so loved and supported.
I have always...ALWAYS wanted a ferret. Like, my whole life. I'm really sure why, but they just call to me. They're so smart, and so curious and social...I just love them. They have a certain otter-ness about them that I just find irresistible. Patrick has always been dead-set against NO FERRETS. He made jokes about their pointy faces and sharp teeth, and how they reminded him of the scary guys in "30 Days of Night." So, no ferret for me. We have lots of other pets, so I just loved on them. We recently got our tax refund, and are planning to have the outside of our house painted. Yesterday afternoon, Patrick drove me to Petco, and bought me a ferret!!! At first I wouldn't get out of the car, because I thought he was just teasing me, or wanted to see what I would do. But he was serious!!! So, I'm now the proud of owner of an all-white (albino, actually) ferret, that I've named Noodles!!! I LOVE HIM! And guess what? Patrick loves him too! Too funny.
Today's a really busy day, and I have kind of had a knot in my stomach about getting it all done. Patrick sat down with me, and totally divided my list with me, and is doing a bunch of it for me! I told him I felt weird doing that, because the stuff is my responsibility. He said "Baby, we're partners! This is what partners do!" I still have some guilt about letting some of it go, but gosh it sure takes a load off of me. I'm just so appreciative. I don't know why I have such a hard time delegating...but it's like I totally forget that I can actually ASK FOR HELP sometimes.
And now, I was just sitting here talking to him, and we were talking about our turtle. Squirt is going to live at a school, but I haven't been able to line up meeting with the director of the school and getting her dropped off. Again, Patrick just said "Give me the number, and I'll take care of it while you're at school this week." Hi. Why didn't I think of that before?
