How do you peel a cantaloupe?

It's Friday, I have made breakfast for Doc, cleaned the house, bathed Scooter and Clyde (her daddy's new nickname), given my blog a face lift, made a journal entry for each of the girls, talked to my mom, my brother and my dad. It sounds like I have been very productive, but the truth is I am standing here eating left over cheeseless pizza, listening to Miley Cyrus sing a ridiculous song while still in my pjs. Aaahhhh...the freedom that is the stay at home mom.

I love the weekends, live for them. I know that sounds absolutely ridiculous considering that I am home everyday of the week. I mean honestly, there are days that I wake up wondering if it is Tuesday or Wednesday. But Friday I know! Friday afternoon starts 60 hours with Doc and that my friends makes me very happy! ;)

Doc is what most of you would call a "keeper". A keeper means that there are more goods than bads, pros than cons, ups than downs, positives than negatives...okay yeah you get it, sorry I got a little carried away. He is by far the best man I have ever met which is why I agreed to marry him 6 months after we started dating. I am not stupid.

Now, I know everyone has things that they love about their husband. Maybe yours keeps the grass cut, buys you flowers, vacuums, is handy around the house, makes you laugh, maybe he washes you car, pumps your gas, maybe he knows that right flavor of ice cream to bring you on the worst of days, maybe he writes in his cards rather than just buying a lengthy one, maybe he helps change diapers, gets up with the babies, maybe he's just a really good dad, or maybe, if you are really blessed like I am, he does ALL of that AND since you have been married you have never had to peel your own cantaloupe. I know, I know, it sounds too good to be true, but it is.

I am telling you I am no dummy, I knew what I was doing when I dumped (he who will not be named) for my sweet Doc. The truth is I had already married the wrong guy, so I was really hoping to marry the right one this time. It took me a little longer to find him than I would have like, so I don't think we'll get our football team like we were hoping, but he sure makes pretty little girls!

Mignon McLaughlin, an American Journalists, said it perfectly when she said, "A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person". And she should have followed it with, "a good husband makes this a lot easier".

I am looking forward to my weekend with my chiropractor. I know that whether we are busy or not (which we are this weekend we actually have PLANS with people that live in TN!!) it will be awesome because he makes it so easy to fall in love with him over and over again. In addition to that, I have a ripe cantaloupe in the fridge ;). Can't wait to see you baby!!

Enjoy your weekend friends, I know I will!!
