My Husband

Well now that I have been on the guilt trip for not blogging on his site I will explain why. Even tho I am a Leo I don't do a lot of roaring. Only when it counts like protecting my family or friends. For the most part I am a real pussycat. So you wonder how in the world I managed to survive 30 years with this man. So am I. He is a tyrant when it comes to having things his way. Always has been and probably will be till the end. But he is also a very loyal and loving friend. He is my best friend. He would fight for me. Since we have started this trip with his medical problems it has not been easy. Lately he is stubborn, mean, forgetful and just not with the rest of us. I have asked him questions and then he walks away without answering them. Or he will say something about me nagging him and getting rid of wives that nag him. Nagging consists of asking him what he wants to do on any given day.
So those of you out there taking care of a spouse or loved one just remember that we do it for love because who else is going to do it. Me, I tell him I am in it for the money now. So he should probably go back to work and earn some.
It is not easy and it will only get harder. But we are in it for the long haul. For those who can't stand up to the pressure do not feel bad. This world is not for everybody and the quality of care is more important than who gives it.
Take care
