a wife of noble character, who can find?

Get ready. My horn? It's about to be tooted.

I reached ultimate wife status yesterday. As if open lines of communication with the boy weren't enough, let me just tell you about this conversation regarding the care package...
Me: Did you get your package?
Andrew: YES.
Me: Did you like everything in it?
Andrew: Page. I've been sharing with the guys and man, you are a hit.
What is it that Proverbs 31 says? She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar. That's how you keep a group of boys happy, my lady friends. Works every time. Every. Time.

Also, can I take credit for the cake if the recipe isn't mine? I sure think so. If you disagree, maybe wait a few days to tell me. I'm enjoying this too much.

When I talked to Andrew last night, all he wanted to do was list all of his "firsts" for the day:
  • Walked outside, just to look around
  • Ate with his right hand
  • Ate with a fork
  • Wore his khakis (he sent me a picture of himself and WHOA, is he handsome!)
  • Listened to music
  • Watched a baseball game on the TV in the workout room

He also said that at breakfast/lunch, he felt so uncomfortable eating freely that he didn't enjoy it. He said he had this constant feeling of "I'm about to get in trouble." But it wore off by dinner and in addition to the standard meat and potatoes, he enjoyed 4 bananas and 13 pats of peanut butter. Yeah, that sounds about right...

He also said that the guys worked out in the staff gym, which comes equipped with a sterio and TVs. He was adorable: "Page, I got to watch the Red Sox game! And one of the guys put on 50 Cent! I feel like I'm in college."

Needless to say, he's enjoying his newfound freedom. He did say that it kind of feels too good to be true, like he's just waiting for his bubble to burst. I'm sure that's natural, but let's hope the next 3 weeks go smoothly.

And don't worry, he still misses me. I told him that I bet he was having so much fun that he forgot about his poor little wife back home on the farm, to which he so tenderly responded: "yeah right!"

  1. I hope it's ok for one to take compliments on a recipe that isn't original. That cake recipe isn't mine either, and I've been doing it for years! xox!!
