As I discussed last week, winter has arrived! We are getting even more snow as I type this. For a visual, this is what my car was like last week when I left work:
Steve and I discussed getting a snow plow service, and aside from the initial hesitation, Steve agreed to the idea. Of course the inner frugality had to come out with the initial mention of spending money on something. The service has been by twice, and I can already tell it is money well spent! Hearing that plow this morning at 5:50am was a welcome way to rise!
I take a lot of pride in doing a lot of things by myself. But, I also know where my limitations are. I can't do it all. I can do what I can, and I know when to ask for help when needed.
If Steve resisted this, I would have pushed back hard on this. And good for him to realize what my capacity is. I appreciate that.
Steve's job gives us different challenges than other couples. If Steve had a normal 9-5 job, you bet he would have been out there at 6am this morning getting the drive all cleared...and he would be preparing to spend the evening getting the drive cleared again with the additional snow that fell during the day. But, he doesn't have a normal 9-5 job. So, we have to do what we have to do, so that I don't lose my mind when he is gone.
If any pilots, that live in a snowy climate, are looking for a Christmas gift for their wife, give the gift of a snow plow service. She will love and adore you each and every time the plow makes its appearance...believe me!
Next to work on...getting a housekeeper. Although I know that is wishful thinking...until they sign a contract :)
