There are many reasons why I needed to get a job. I've been spending too much money, watching too much tv, and baking too much food. It's also an uncomfortable subject when people ask me what I do and I say in all seriousness, "I'm a stay-at-home wife." And of course the spouts of complete boredom where I sit on the couch and stare at the wall. I start next Monday working as a surgical nurse again so this is my last week of freedom and doing whatever the heck I want!
Today though, i reconfirmed to myself that i really do need to start working. When Ryan comes home today and asks what I did I can say with a BIG SMILE on my face, "honey, while you were working all day, I built us a fort."
I love forts. Ryan and I used to make and watch movies in them while we were dating and newlyweds. I'm bringing them back and making our fort so much classier and mature. I even strung some lights and garland. I know this will be a nice surprise when Ryan gets home from a long day at the office. What grown man wouldn't love crawling into a pimped out fort after being stuck at a cubicle all day? My point precisely. Oh, and today he turns 28 so this is also a birthday gift! Ha :)
