Friday's Husband

I'm currently reading a book called "Have a New Husband by Friday", by Dr Kevin Leman, upon the recommendation of a few women.  I am on page 122 of 212 and here's a summary of what I've learned so far:

The attributes that my husband could have by Friday?  He already has them.

I don't know why I'm still reading this book instead of writing my own about how wonderful my husband is.  I know, it's got stuff in there for me to do to be a better wife.  The problem is, my hubby is so good to me, it's hard to want to try sometimes.  (Aaron, if you're reading this, please don't take that to mean you need to stop being so swell!)  Don't worry, that doesn't mean I'll stop wanting/trying to be a good wife.  Just that he is honestly so patient with me and my shortcomings that I get complacent about my personal betterment sometimes.

I'm also finding that the generalizations in this book make me mad.  Women are more organized.  Men are not.  Women can think about more than one thing at a time.  Men cannot.  Women see the clutter on the floor.  Men do not.  I'll tell you, in this house, my hubby is more organized than I am, is already thinking ahead to the next thing, and sees the clutter that I do not see.

I think Dr. Leman needs to write a book to help my husband get a new wife by Friday.  That'll be the one that I need to read!

Honey, thank you for being that ama-za-zing, awesome, wonderful husband that you are.  I try to let you know how much I appreciate you, but I know that I still take you for granted far too often.  You are one in a million, a rose among thorns, a Drew Brees among Matt Leinarts.  I love you!


  1. Excellent stuff! Wanda, I know exactly what you're saying!♡ you both!

  2. Simply wonderful! I'm with you on needing the read the book not written -- on how to be the wife my husband needs! Right now I'm looking at piles of paper and my office. Drives him crazy.
