Let's Talk about Romance . . .

Let me hear it, ladies. I KNOW you love getting some pedicure action on. Okay - there may be a few of you out there that don't want anyone touching your feet. But, alas, I am not one of those women. I would be one happy woman if I could just have my feet rubbed every night.


I've asked Ivan like 1,000,000 3 times in the past week or so if he could rub my feet. Actually, I asked if he could "do" my feet. When I ask that, I'm leaving it up to him as to how much or how little he does . . . beggars can't be choosers, right?

Let me just say this. I'm a blessed woman. My man can paint toenails as good, if not better, than I do. And I went to beauty school. So, I was hoping I'd get a new paint job, after some lotion and maybe a little foot massage. But, again, I didn't ask for specifics.


Two nights ago, 10:00 rolls around, and I've all but given up. I'm laying in bed, telling myself that I WON'T ask again. It's just not quite so enjoyable when I've had to ask numerous times. To tell the truth, in a perfect world? I wouldn't have to ask at all. He'd be asking me, "Honey, can I do your feet?"

But I digress.

So. Ivan had spent the day reorganizing his workshop. Getting his tools and bags just how he wanted them. He was so excited. He pulled me back there and showed me a big, empty bag. "This is my project bag. When I've got a project to do, I'll just put everything I need in here, and it's all together. When the project's over, I put everything back and the bag is empty again. Isn't that cool?"

I was so glad to see him excited about organization!


Back to 10:00 - I've given up. I'm laying in the bed working on some Sudoku puzzles. Lo and behold, I hear him rustling around in the hall closet - he's getting my nail stuff! Yay!!


He gets started. I've got numerous foot filing thingies. You know, the glorified nail files, for your heels? He starts there. Yay! I'll have pretty feet again!



Where are you going, Ivan?

He's gone like - 5 minutes.


Here he comes.

With this.

Yeah. That there on the left? His project bag.

That there on the right? What was in it.

Let's look a little closer, hmmm?

Yeah. That would be a sanding block, a wood shaver, and yeah. His drill.

Even closer.

Yeah. That would be the sanding bit. FOR MY FEET!
Be still my heart.
You think maybe that's why I had to ask 3 times?
No wonder he's not asking me if he can pamper me this way! :) Methinks a professional pedicure should be on my Christmas list.
P.S. Guess what? They didn't work. None of them. That 'ole foot filer did the job, as always.
P.S.S. I love my husband! I'm sure if this were our first year of marriage, I would have been just a little offended. Now I'm just. . . tickled. You know somebody loves you if they're not afraid to put a drill to your feet!
And my feet may still not look good (no polish), but they sure are soft!
What a fairy-tale, romantic life I live!
What's the most romantic, or misguided romantic thing your husband's ever done for you?


  1. ROFL! I have to say, that was the BEST post I have red in a long time, anywhere. And too sweet! I, myself, am one of those women who can't stand for my feet to be rubbed. But a back rub on the other hand..LoL.
    BTW-what color did he paint your nails, if he did? hehehe.

    P.S.-I get all my fonts from
    Her tutorials are super, duper easy and straightfoward. Honey, if I can do it--you can do it!!

    Love ya!
    ((hugs & blessings))

  2. What a cute blog! I pictured it all in my mind as I read it. Thanks for sharing this experience and making me smile this morning.


It makes my day when I hear from you. Sad, but true - so make a girl feel good, eh? :)
