Gift 2 – Another Snow Storm
Living in Wisconsin has a lot of advantages……snow is not one of them.
Don’t get me wrong I like snow as long as I can stay inside and sip hot chocolate and look out the front window. However I do not want to go out in it and I certainly do not want to shovel it.
Early on in our marriage I made it clear I hate shoveling. Luckily for me we had three boys that would always help their dad. Unfortunately those wonderful boys have moved out and it’s just the two of us. I gently remind my husband if he really wants me to shovel and cut the grass then I think we should move to a condo. I would love to move to a condo with underground parking.
Today we got about 4 inches of snow and it was a heavy snow. I knew my husband had a busy night so I tried my best to shovel the driveway as my gift for him. To be honest with my bad back I only made it through half the driveway. I took two breaks but I just couldn’t finish. I was bummed about that. However when my husband came home he seemed pleasantly surprised at my efforts. It only took him a few minutes to finish up and then we had a few minutes to have dinner together before he had to leave again.
