The hubby gets big bonus points for this Xmas

Gift-giving is not always my hubby's strong suit, and I've become okay with that since he is so supportive and delightful in most other areas. But this year he really outdid himself, even by talented gift-giver standards. First, he got me the wacom bamboo fun tablet, so I can really push my digital art much further than I have been able to do when trying to draw with a mouse (note to self: if I ever want to create art that looks like it was drawn by children, pull out the mouse again. Otherwise just stick with my tablet).

Then (and just the tablet would have been enough, believe me!) he got me this super cool ring I've had my eye on from Catherinette's shop--isn't it just chock full of funky fun goodness?

To top it all off, the poor guy had to then spend most of Christmas day at the emergency animal hospital with our cat Allie Mae. She's okay now, and for the sake of delicacy I won't tell you all what was wrong with her just in case anyone is eating while they're reading this.

Suffice it to say he has earned a plenty big stockpile of brownie points this holiday season and thus will probably be coasting on those for months. That is, unless I keep stepping on the small parts of power tools that have been recently appearing just as I put all my weight on a bare foot...if they keep "I don't know how that got there, I swear, sorry honey"ing under my delicate little toesies for much longer then that stockpile of points might be gone in a week or two ;)


P.s.--after Ms. Mae got sick and then got treated my soulmate-in-cat-form, Zorro, also got sick and is still not fully recovered yet, so we appreciate all thoughts and purrayers anyone might care to send their way.

7 bits of commenty goodness:

Thanks, I was eating breakfast when I read this. Glad you got some nice things from your hubby. Sometimes us guys get it right :-)
