My Husband Rocks Friday

I decided it was time to get back into the "MHR Fridays." So, here goes.

Brandon can be a very lazy person. (Good way to start out a positive blog, right? I promise I'm getting to it). And by lazy, I mean if you looked up lazy in the dictionary, you'd see his picture. (Ok, so that phrase is way overused, but it's true! And apparently my sidenotes in paretheses are overused as well.) Anyway, when Brandon wants to lay on the couch, there is pretty much nothing you can do to change his mind. On Wednesday, we had our church's annual Fall Fest (Halloween alternative). I had signed up to go, but Brandon did not. He had worked the previous 10 days in a row without a break, and decided he wanted to rest. As it turns out, I used a sick day that day since I wasn't feeling that well, so we were both home all day. I was feeling better by that afternoon, so I decided to go on and stick to my commitment. I asked Brandon if he wanted to go, and gave him the puppy eyes told him that he didn't have to if he didn't want to. Even though he didn't want to, he went with me. While we were setting up, he sat in a classroom playing Solitaire. I was pretty annoyed that he wasn't helping. I understood. But, much to my surprise, once the festivities started, not only did he come down and stand with me for 2 whole hours while I worked the Puzzle Walk, he even jumped in and had some fun and stole a bunch of the candy helped. Thanks for your help, hun. I know you didn't want to, but I appreciate it :)

I happen to know a thing or two about having a lazy husband. So glad that Brandon stepped in and helped you at the Fall Fest!

That is so funny. Did he enjoy his stolen candy?
