For the last couple of weeks my husband has said yes to all my ideas (or most of my ideas). He is sort of reminding me of Jim Carey in “Yes Man” without all the Jim Carey goofiness. Maybe he finally figured out I am always right (ok, maybe not always) or he has given up on arguing with me. I haven’t figured it out yet. All I know is he agreed to a trip that isn’t in his M.O. (Modus operandi or also known as Method of Operation).
It all started about two weeks ago. I came to my husband and told him that I had this great idea for spring break. I said, “Let’s take the girls to Victoria, BC and visit our friends, Curtis and Michelle, on the way.” (Curtis and Michelle live on Whidbey Island).
I knew the visit to Whidbey Island with Curtis and Michelle would be ok, but I wasn’t sure about the Victoria, BC. After all, it’s not the usual high adventure, active vacation of skiing, golfing or scuba diving. He tends to like vacations with exercise in the mix.
But…… my husband said yes. I found a great deal on a hotel room on www.Kayak.com and we were off and running.
When we got to Whidbey Island, Michelle and I asked Stephen if he wanted to come with us and the kids to the tulip fields. Stephen said, “Yes!”
The tulips were lovely.
After we left Whidbey Island, we headed to Victoria, BC. It was a three hour ferry ride through the beautiful San Juan islands.
So, we arrived in Victoria, and the girls wanted to shop. They said, “Dad, can we go shopping?”
Stephen said, “Yes.”
“Dad, do you want to come with us?”
Stephen said, “Yes.”
Grace bought a moose pillow and Isabel bought a blanket with a Canadian flag on it. I bought a tea set. Stephen didn’t buy anything.
(OK…now my english accent is coming out so just imagine).
The next day I suggested a carriage ride and Stephen said, “Yes.”
Maybe it was all ok because of the princesses he was with! Then we rode the carriage to the palace (The Empress Hotel) where Stephen agreed to have……..high tea……. and when we got the bill…..Stephen agreed to pay it…… (just sayin…)
Ok…maybe four reasons. I think I am in that mix too.
He is good man…not just because he said yes, but because he loves his girls….and he loves me too!
