I was in the kitchen the other day working with Jeff. There was a Cubs game going on and of course it was coming out of his radio. A thought crossed my mind, morbid I know, but it got me thinking. The thought was....when Jeff dies I will probably LOVE listening to the Cubs, because it would so remind me of him. I would somehow feel close to him listening to the Cubs. A little later, I had another thought.....what other things or words would remind me of Jeff.

For those of you who care, here is my list.

  1. Ragu spaghetti sauce (Traditional Flavor) and toast
  2. New Balance sneakers
  3. Cubs ANYTHING
  4. cream of wheat and vanilla ice cream (yes, together)
  5. soccer
  6. NPR radio
  7. Whoppers (the candy)
  8. rain (he loves to take long walks in it)
  9. Columbo (the old TV series)
  10. coach's whistle (he's a basketball coach)
  11. chopping wood
  12. gum and chips (he hates the sound people make with these two things)
  13. 66 (the year he was born....according to him THE GREATEST NUMBER)
  14. Vaseline (the man uses it for everything)
  15. water bottles (he often has one with him whenever out of the house)
  16. chess
  17. a Bic pen (he always has one of these in his pocket/ very resourceful kind of guy)
  18. ear plugs (because of issues like #12)
  19. opera music (he enjoys this stuff....I HATE IT!)
  20. Greenville, SC (birthplace and where we would LOVE to live someday)
  21. tennis balls
  22. Wrangler jeans (the ONLY kind he wears)
  23. mashed potatoes
  24. cream of chicken soup and LOTS of crackers (his comfort food)
  25. our daughter Lauren (she looks and thinks just like him)
  26. my wedding ring

I am sure I am missing a bunch of stuff, but I should stop for now.

I think that is one of the sweetest things I have ever read! It's good to remember what we love about our husbands like that and to cherish each little memory. Thanks for sharing!

How sweet! I got all nostalgic for a bit.
