Wine or Chocolate?

I love my boyfriend because when I’m having an off day, he just says, “Wine or Chocolate?”

He will do anything to put a smile on my face, put me in better spirits and make me feel loved. He gets me. And I love him for that. 

Balance in Our Relationship

T (my boyfriend, we’ve been dating/living together for about 3 years) saw yesterday’s post and did an amazing thing for me today.

Briefly, the post was about my productivity being abysmally low when I have a completely open day with nothing on the calendar and how I need to start scheduling things in, even if it’s just working out, or setting time aside to write in the blog.  Because when I have something on a schedule already, I add more things and get more things done. 

ANYWAYS–> He left a note for me this morning with things to do today! Aptly titled, “RENEE’S BIG OLE LIST OF STUFF TO DO!”.  It included mostly housework, but also, coming up with ideas to rearrange some of the furniture in various rooms in our apartment, working out and being sexy (lol). 

Productive, Productivity, To-do list, list

Now I know what you’re thinking, “He left you a list of chores. What a dick.”  What you DON”T KNOW is that he does more day-to-day cleaning/tidying than I do and he works 40+ hours a week.  That’s right, I’m the dick. And I think this is one of the sweetest things ever!  This is just one tiny way that we have great balance in this relationship.  He KNOWS I need a to-do list, he KNOWS I need things on my schedule.  So without even asking, he gives me a list of things to do so that I am more productive on yet another empty day.  

It’s a win-win-win scenario. He gets to come home to a clean house, it gets the ball rolling on what will become a super productive day, I don’t feel like a lazy person AND he gets super brownie points for reading yesterday’s post and making it all happen.

He gets me. And that’s just an inkling of why I love this man, oh-so-gosh-darn much.
