Q is for Queen

And that is exactly how the man made me feel today.

I admit I had a rough day at work. I came home and simply crashed. I wanted nothing to do with anything - only to kick my shoes off and breathe a moment.

He asked me to go see a picture in the guest room because he didn't know where he should hang it.

I said later.

He started playing around, trying to get me off the couch - and the more he pushed and pulled, the more like a marionette I became. Laughing, he pushed the couch to the hallway entrance and announced that's as far as he could get me. Begrudgingly, I finally went to the door and what did my little eyes behold - a new yarn stash organizing shelving unit!!!!!!

Apparently he bought it yesterday - I was not feeling well and napped while he and the kids went shopping. And this morning he put it together and even put my yarn in all the basket cubbies. I was totally surprised!

It's very exciting, to say the least. I was very surprised and felt very special that he would do something like that for me, especially as crabby as I was to him yesterday (again, I didn't feel very well although I acknowledge that is no reason to get crabby with people, especially your loved ones).

Then to top it off, we had to go shopping. He asked if I wanted to go out to dinner and had me believing that we were going to go to our favorite little Mexican restaurant - much to my surprise, he turned early and took me to my favorite Japanese hibatchi grill - a very nice place.

After filling me full of wonderful food, we went shopping for some new shirts for our son and was taken down the basket aisle to get a new, matching basket for my hooks and needles.

What a day... a completely, unexpected wonderful day - one fit for a yarn queen

AHHHHHHHHH. I'm sure you deserved it. Buying the cubbies and putting it together is one thing, but putting your yarn in the cubbies is AMAZING. You've got a good one there!

I would have to agree :) I had to do a little re-orging of the yarn, but nothing like putting it all in. He did a great job. I was so happy :)

How sweet!  You are a lucky lady to have a man so wonderful!

The best "gift" is one in which the giver puts time and effort into; making it special specifically for the recipient.
And he knew just when you needed it the most.
