Ok then. Guess I'm off to return the rubber gloves and mop I just bought for you.

My favorite thing is to find little yellow sticky notes everywhere with a little short message on them. Jim places them wherever he knows I'll be that day....makes the fun last all day long as I keep finding them throughout the day. (We'll be married 7 years next month.) Congratulations!

Wouldn't be the first time you gave me rubber gloves as a gift...

As for the suggestions...I LOVE Alix's suggestion! What a great thing! 7 of everything! OH and I like the idea of dedicating the whole day to just her! Plan the day in accordane to what she likes and loves....even if you hate the things....this would get me going...oh and the sticky notes really aint a bad idea either!!! I hope you have a good day no matter what you do, but dont forget to tell us what happened!!

Oh, I get called wife, Ol' Lady, ect.....I dont mind it, atleast I aint getting called a few choice words!

Paul and I leave notes for each other all the time..

Kind of like the "new game" we're playing here.

I start a note and then a few days later
I'll find it with an added message on my desk.
I'll wait a few days and give it back to him. Back and forth it goes. Kind of silly but it's always so nice.

He just told me that he's kept every note and card that I've ever given him! Locked up in the file cabnet. I thought he threw them all away. I knew I kept every thing from him in my memory box, finding out that he's keeping everything too really made my heart smile. When he goes hunting next time he's going to give them all to me so I can re-read them. I'll have a blast remembering all the good times.

I like it when my husband introduces me as "my wife," but being called "the" wife was a pet peeve when I was married to my first husband. Every time he would introduce me as "the" wife, I would say, "The wife, the car, the dog." It sounds too much like a possession to me!

Getting back to anniversary gifts--I got my daughter and son-in-law something that I thought was really cute for their first anniversary. The first anniversary is paper and clocks. I found a jigsaw puzzle clock that really worked. I don't think they ever put it together, so I guess they would have rather had something else, but I thought it was neat, since it was both paper and a clock.

[QUOTE=Maidrite]ANd Never ever REFER to her As "THE WIFE" Women hate that. [/QUOTE]

LOL! It could be worse, I could introduce her as "My First Wife"

Actually I really got lucky when I found her. She's not a really romantic type, she hates both roses and Diamonds, never wears jewelry, would rather have a living plant than cut flowers and Valentines Day is when all the candy goes on sale

That's great cause I rarely remember Valenties Day (I know It's in February but other than that...) and am terriable at romance . She's been talking about a candy store in a small town in Northern California that makes the best divinity fudge in the world (and she's travelled the world). I'm going to see if I can get ahold of them and have a couple of pounds of it flown in for her

God Bless
