I Love My Wife




Every good woman deserves a good wife and I can unequivocally say that I love my wife. My wife is my cleaning girl, and I refer to her as my wife in the most loving and respectful way possible. She is truly my capable counterpart in this household.

Recently I have begun a new project that hopefully set me on the path of a new career, and it is taking up all of my time. By this time next week I hope to be able to reveal to you my new venture, but for now let's just say I've been busy. Extremely busy. My wife has been filling in for mom quite expertly, as she does it all. She does laundry, makes beds, vacuums, drives the kids if I can't, (which is rare) and takes care of the mutt-ly crew. I do all of the cooking for the family, but yesterday I had an all out, balls to the wall kind of day. I gave my wife a brief tutorial on what I had planned for dinner and what she needed to do, which of course was way too hopeful with what's on my plate right now, and she handled it. Dinner was not only FAB but was on the table, on time.

The thing is, my wife gives me the peace of mind to be able to tackle this new project without guilt. I couldn't focus if I knew that things weren't getting done around the house and the laundry was piling up. THAT would make me crazy and be a sure-fire formula for failure. I have also acquired a new skill that I was never adept in handling before-delegation, and one I will need to master in my future work. It's beginning to work for me, as my wife is a stellar student. She has worked for me for three years, and in those years, I have worked both outside the home and inside the home. I trust her completely and we have a mutual respect for each other and a sixth sense about sensitivity to each other's needs. She was always here for the basics, cleaning and laundry, but in the last few months she has taken on some new tasks and I think she is happier, and busier than she has ever been before.
The same goes for me. I have a calming peace of mind knowing that household chores are something I really don't need to worry about at this time and I can let my creativity blossom with a focus and a direction, because my wife's got it covered.

As I said before, every good woman needs a good wife and I love my wife.

Whoh. I'm kinda new here. I didn't realize you were one of those chicks who likes other chicks.

Wil said...

The burning question though is:

Is she hot and would you like to have carnival knowledge of her?

Oh F you guys! Like you weren't thinking it too!

Is that an actual picture of your cleaning girl? If so, I want to hire her to scrub my naughty parts.

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!

HEY, what the hell? So the good women are taking the good wives? Well, at least it makes sense now. No wonder I'm so f**king frustrated. So just what do you suggest *I* do, Candy? Huh? HUH? ; )

Good luck with the new venture.

I'd have several wives if it were allowed (outside of Utah) because there's always so much to do... then I just noticed John is really cute (and "frustrated" - my favourite combo!) and I totally forgot the rest of my comment.

You can have the wife. I just want a mistress.

Chris @ Maugeritaville said...

Wil, you opened quite the can of worms there, so now the rest of us kinda have to admit to those same thoughts.

That aside, though, Candy this was a very thoughtful and sweet post.

BamaTrav said...

That was the way my ex-wife was, so I know how you feel. Now, she has a wife. Ha

I am so very glad for you that you have a wife to help you out! I have wished for that like you cannot imagine! Yay for you! I hope you are able to do everything you would like to do!
