A pretty lucky girl

I don't know how I got so lucky. Not only is Carl handsome and fun to be around, he also finds coaching baseball a stress reliever. I wonder if going from bedroom to bedroom reading to the kids at night (even using different voices) also relieves his stress. Right now he's reading Hank the Cowdog to Grant and Alex, Harry Potter to Jordan and Fablehaven with Katie. I usually fall asleep before he's done. Besides reading, Carl also does the dishes, makes the bed, corrals Grant to bed etc. He works crazy hours, usually no less than 12 a day plus a lot of Saturdays but he never seems to lose all his energy. He's amazingly positive and inspires me to work harder.

You are a lucky lady! He'll probablly be jumping out of his chair when he is 95 and running and tumbling with the great-grandkids. You make a great couple! You're kids are very fortunate to have parents that love eachother and emphasize the positive things in life. Good Job!
