with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
As I mentioned in my last post, my husband has planned an “early Christmas present” for me, happening this weekend. Well, not the whole weekend as the kids have activities on Saturday and we have church on Sunday (my husband is on staff). I do know that I’ve been excused from a work course on Monday morning but am not sure if that involves an overnight trip somewhere? Maybe? But it would be a quick trip, what with our Sunday and Monday committments.
I really have no idea.
He has also told me that he’s finished Christmas shopping for me, even though I did not even tell him one thing to buy me. He’s always good at paying attention to when I mention things and blows me away pretty much every year for both Christmas and my birthday.
The curiosity drives me a little bit crazy, but not enough to go digging around to see what he’s purchased. I could look at our credit card statement online (we always ban each other from doing so in the month or two before Christmas) or go rooting through closets and such, but I really do like the surprise more than I hate the suspense.
How about you? Do you like surprises? Or are you the type of person who has to have your presents hidden at a distant and secret location?
