Hard Working Husband

I just have to write about how much I absolutely ADORE my hard working husband. He truly puts his heart and soul into his job, yet, he makes sure that he always has time for me. I know that I am his top priority and that means more than I can express.

A few weeks ago, he went on a business trip to Japan to help close a big deal. It was only for a week and I was so sad that I couldn't go with him due to my "real job" where I need to be in an office. I am truly so happy that it was not for longer- it had appeared earlier that it might be for nearly a month. I am so happy that it was not for that long. I historically have never been a needy person- I valued my alone time, but I then met William. I absolutely love being with him- it is when I truly feel complete. I am one of those nerdy wives who cannot WAIT for her husband to get home every day. So, a week was fairly tough. I at least was able to talk with him on video chat by Skype everyday (and sometimes multiple times a day :-) I tried to either keep myself super busy going to cultural events or else I didn't feel like doing anything- my productivity totally decreased with him gone. William worked INCREDIBLY long hours on this trip to help close the deal. I remember talking with him one night before I went to bed and he said that he was about ready to go to a meeting. When I woke up over 7 hours later, he had JUST GOTTEN OUT OF THE MEETING. And this was over a weekend while in Japan.

William's hard work previously has allowed him to work on this big, exciting project. You can read all about the project for which he is manager here in the New York Times (although he is not specifically mentioned). He has been working even longer hours with this project and I just want him to know how much I appreciate him. I feel so bad that I am such a complainer about my sitting at a desk job for at the most 8 hours a day with my 30 hour a week job while he generally averages at least twice that every week. Yet he continues to work late hours into the night to provide for us and our future. I am beyond proud of him and just want the world to know that everyday I consider myself to be the lucky one to have him come home to me. I love you William!!

That's amazing! You definitely have a hard working husband! At the same time I can see that he makes you very happy. I'm sure that he also feels very lucky to have you as his wife. Tell me more about your job. Are you guys staying in NY for good? I envy all your choices for entertainment. Here in Vegas is only fun for the gambler. Anyway, I'm glad to see you're doing great. =)
