I would show J some beds and he would say, "I can totally make that." The rest of the conversation went something like this:
Me: Okay, then. Do it! That is what I want for my birthday.
Jesse: You want me to make Jigs a bed for YOUR birthday?! That's so unlike you.
Me: I'm turning a new leaf and yes, I want you to make her a raised bed for my birthday. It will be the best gift of all!
Four months later, here we are in May and in the thick of shearing, lambing and irrigation season...there is NO way I'm getting my bed for Jigs. There has been no mention of it; he surely forgot. I did what any girl would do at that point and jumped online and started to shop. Jigs was getting her bed.
I wasn't going to put one more thing on J - he's coming in at 9pm every night, eating dinner, showering (most nights) and jumping in bed. We barely talk during the month of April/May. I'll let him slide. He can make me that bench I wanted instead.
The night before my birthday I went to dinner with some friends and came home to this:
It isn't the cute bow or tutu that made my heart smile, my Jigs is always that cute. It was the card hanging around her neck. What does Jigs have to say? Finally!! She is communicating back to me!
"I has a surprise for you! Lets check my favorite spots 2 find it! -Jigs"
She is a good speller. She gets that from her mama.
So, I excitedly start playing her game and come to her last favorite spot and there it was...
A raised bed.
So, today I am borrowing my dear friend, Tara's "My Husband Rocks" post idea because on this day my hubby TOTALLY rocked it! Turns out he was working on the bed during his "lunch break" and for those of you that don't know...Ranchers don't get a lunch break. ;)
