The Signifcant Other Blogfest



**Head over to DL's Blog if you want to participate, or just read the other entries!

The following three questions were answered by my husband, Greg. See that cute boy down there, holding that other chubby-cheeked cute boy? Yep, that's him!

1. What food or drink is guaranteed to return your wife to a good mood, even after a bad day writing? Depending on the day, either a nice glass of dry red wine, dark chocolate, or a Popsicle!


2. What one thing would you change about your wife's writing habits? The blank, glossy stare that tell me she hasn't heard a word I've said, and then a mad dash to the computer.

3. How hard is it to sit by and watch someone you care for struggle to attain a dream...knowing there's very little you can do to help? First, let me say how hard I am rooting for her. She has so many 'jobs'-mother, wife, writer, newspaper columnist, and hand-stamped jewelry entrepreneur- and she somehow juggles them all.

But because of all of that, she doesn't get nearly the time she needs or wants to write fiction, the thing she truly adores. But she's driven, and I believe in her one-hundred percent. I can only help by supporting her, and letting her talk through rough patches. And I'm glad to do it!


I love you, honey!
(*sniffle, sniffle*)

The one thing that sucks about this BF is that a lot of people forget to mention the person's name. NOT YOU!

Melissa said...

Your husband sounds awesome (and is also cute! Your son is freaking adorable! How can you deal with all the awesome in your house?)

I love how you have the side of you that wants red wine and the other side that craves a popsicle. LOVE IT
