Appreciative for Supportive Partners

I accused my partner of sabotaging my efforts when he threw bacon into the pot of rice and when he threw italian sausage into some other meal.  Acusations are not a good foundation for marriage and luckily he took my attacks in stride because today I got to see what it was like when my partner really supported my efforts.

I did not want to exercise and I certainly did not want to do my elephantine-thudding and grunting around my partner, but ultimately I was pretty happy just hanging out on the sofa playing with the kids.

And then he said, "Well, I'll go work on a project outside so you can do your exercises."  I groaned and said I wasn't ready so he putzed around for twenty more minutes, by which time I had changed my clothes and put on my shoes.  He left and I did my routine.

And afterwards, I felt better.  And sleeker.  And sweatier.  It was nice.  And I very much appreciated the support in making it happen.
