You know that song by the Talking Heads, the one that goes "And you may tell yourself, This is not my beautiful wife!" - that's where I am lately (only it's my husband). Somehow my husband has been stolen and replaced with a new and improved model - and it's kind of freaking me out.

A few examples:
- On the way home Scott called and said "hey, I know you've had a long day - why don't you stop and pick up pizza so that you don't have to cook. That way you can relax when you get home."

- Yesterday he cleared all the snow off the deck for me without asking.

- As part of the new and improved post-flood basement we added a wall between the "family" room and the laundry room. But he actually took the time to add a light switch for the laundry room so that I wouldn't have to walk into the dark room to get to the old switch.

- When I got home tonight, instead of finding him with his feet up reading the paper, I found him tiling the basement floor and mudding the new wall - and doing the laundry (I swear I am not lying).

- Saturday we got through all of the carpet buying and installing and furniture moving without a single fight.

Yeah - so either aliens have come to earth and stolen my hubs or he's about to do something really bad, not sure which one just yet.

That sounds like some definite good stuff. Good luck getting your basement all fixed up!

Sounds like someone made some pretty nice New Year's resolutions! I suggest giving him lots of hugs and thanks for what he's doing and the good stuff is likely to keep on going!

Sounds great, but scary! I wonder what is he up to?

Anyway, you should enjoy it for the time being. Let's think that aliens came. (:

Take it while you can get it ... because you know eventually he'll end up with his feet back on the coffee table!!! =)
