...to my hardworking man. Thanks to Magnum's incredible work ethic, and constant drive to be successful at his job, I was able to spend an hour working on this today. (yeah, I can't believe I'm letting you see my back fat and big rear end, either!)
And, he's been completely on board ever since. It's not just something he said in passing, he really meant it. He has not once, in the year I've been unemployed, said a single word about me looking for a job. Or, not looking, as the case may be.
I know I haven't been here much lately, and there are LOTS of things that have been going on around here at Casa de ChiTown that I haven't filled you all in on yet. Clearly, one of those things is that Magnum found a job! Woo hoo!! He's been there for two months now, and he LOVES it! He's been working like a madman, and one of the reasons is so that I don't HAVE to go back to work. Well, unless I want to, of course, or I'm ready to, whichever the case may be.
God, I love that man!!! I'm so very lucky, and blessed, that God has chosen this path for us, and our "story." Yeah, I like to tease him, and facetiously tell him that he owes me 18 years of being at home, for the years I should have been home with our son, but most of the time, he agrees with me. How great is that?
I mentioned a few posts ago (wow! was my birthday really almost 6 weeks ago already?!) that things were starting to take an upswing around here, and thankfully, that continues. I've continued to formulate many, many posts in my head, and I take pictures on a daily basis, with the intent of posting about them. I think I'm just about ready to jump back into the Blogosphere.
Some of you will be annoyed to know that naturally that means LOTS of posts and pictures of my Monkey!! Sorry, I can't help it. I just the love the HELL outta that kid!! I'm going to leave you with a quick candid shot I snapped yesterday at the Father's Day picnic where we all celebrated with my Daddy.
