93. Sheep at work

So my husband came home from a job for a school district with an interesting story a few months ago: While he was in the main office, a woman walks in with a baby sheep. She checks in with the front office staff, asking if anyone needs help, and the sheep just followed her around […]

83. Weaving Through Thunderstorms

Ever weaved through thunderstorms? One of the nicest things my husband did for me this past year was direct me through oncoming storms. After teaching my night class I was walking to the parking lot and noticed the sky was dark. Angry dark. I called up my husband, who informed me it was headed towards […]

82. Valentine’s Day

What does Valentine’s Day mean to you? For some, it means flowers and chocolate and date night. For others, it is a propaganda holiday, advertising to people to get all the candy; spend all this money on a lavish present; to prove your love to your significant other. It all comes down to this one […]

81. Cooking hamburgers

Yet another cooking misadventure. Lately we’ve been eating a lot of meat—mostly hamburgers and chicken, but we do have a duck in our freezer waiting to be thawed. I’ve seen my husband grill hamburgers a lot. Sometimes we use pre-made patties, sometimes we make our own, but always he turns the propane on, lets it […]

80. Focusing

I like to work in silence. It’s like oil to my thoughts, lubricating them so that they run at full speed in a logical order. Sometimes, though, I can work with noise in the background if it is people talking. I can listen to my students’ conversations and grade papers at the same time. I […]

77. Tire Discount Deal

One time my husband found a deal on tires. He agreed to meet this guy off of Craigslist (when that was popular) after work to make sure the tires were in good condition. He was driving his small VW Jetta that day. When he arrived, he noticed the guy had more than four tires for […]

73. Cooking Duck

My most recent cooking adventure: We picked up some duck breasts on a road trip, and about a week after we got back, I thawed it out and looked up how to cook it. My husband was working on a car, and I was starving, so I decided to try my hand at duck. I […]

66. Appreciate People

When I was single, I would go on a lot of road trips, with friends or most of the time by myself. I have camped in sand dunes, explored caves, hiked through canyons, walked through a meteor crater, and explored many a state park. It made me happy to be able to go out in […]

63. Smurf Towel

Recently my husband’s brother bought a house about 3 hours away from where we live. A lot of his stuff, like outdoor things and his boat, where being stored at our house until he found a permanent place to live. He hauled his boat down while we pulled a trailer of his loose stuff, with […]

57. Hashbrowns

I am not the greatest cook. I can work the microwave like nobody’s business, but when it comes to cooking basics, I used to not be able to do much past heat up the stove. My husband, on the other hand, is a wonderful cook. He’s one of those that can take a pinch of […]
