When a man loves a woman...

No sooner than I walked in the door, son of a preacher’s wife handed me a long list of things to do. I thought, how insensitive can anyone be? It was then she told me that she needed a vacation from all the dog, house, and plumber problems. So the next day she got online and booked a flight to Kentucky to see an old girlfriend. I thought to myself, I am going to get a five day reprieve, whatever will I do with all that free time. Well, she wasn’t gone 24 hours before I became like our dog Bo who mopes around the house looking for her in every room. Here I sit pining away counting the days until she returns. How can anyone be so madly in love with a woman after 37 years of marriage. I can’t promise what I will say or write tomorrow, but for now, I wish I had a list of things to do for her.

I'll just bet that son of a preacher's wife's friends could help you put together a list of things to do...call the bean counter's wife or the farmer's wife. They'd enjoy the opportunity to help son of a preacher's wife out!
