9 years of Joe Joe

I’ve actually known Joey for nearly 11 years.  I met him on his 19th  birthday, he was a young-en.  We have been married for 9 years as of yesterday and in honor of the 9 years, I thought I’d write 9 things that I love most about Joey:

1-  He has unconditional love for me.  No matter how mad he ever gets, or how badly I might mess something up, or how ugly I might look…..he always loves me, no matter what. 

2-  He doesn’t fight dirty.  He refrains from ever saying mean or hurtful things to me just to hurt my feelings.  He rarely stays mad for very long and he usually can remain the calm one in a “heated” situation. 

3-  Joey is frugal and very good with money.  I know that I can always trust him to take care of the bills, etc.  He loves bargains like I do.  (Although he does get embarrassed of my coupons from time to time)

4-  Joey gives REALLY good massages and he’s always willing to rub my feet, put lotion on them, and he even paints my toe nails. 

5-  He makes me laugh.  Hard.  He is very smart and has witty little comments all the time.  Sometimes, I even steal his jokes and use them at work. 

6-  He keeps me up on politics and the issues.  He’s very patient to explain things to me that I don’t understand.  He knows so much stuff!  He also has a great memory.

7-  He is the BEST gift giver ever!  I don’t know how he does it, but he always manages to get me things that I really wanted but didn’t even know that I wanted.  His gifts are also very thoughtful  (but the cards aren’t).  🙂

8-  He is a very good dad.  He is so helpful to me with the kids.  He almost always does the baths with them and makes sure they take care of their teeth.  He is also good for trimming their nails and he’s a PRO at that little baby boogar sucker thing.  He lays with Tessa each night for at least a half an hour telling her stories.  It’s very apparent how much he loves them.

9-  He does nice little things for me consistently, just because he knows that I like it.  For example, he almost always drives because he knows that I don’t like to.  He also always mows the lawn and takes care of car maintenance; also things that I hate to do. 

Ok, there are many more reasons why I love the Joe Joe…..but we’ll stop with 9 for now.  I’ll come up with the “top ten” next year.

I love you, Joey….Happy Anniversary!
