Love the husband

I was absolutely FLOORED when we were moving into our house and Richael surprised me with this gem.  An antique player piano!! I NEVER in million years woulda ever thought I would EVER own one of my own!! It was such a surprise and so sweet of the boy. He always surprises me when I least expect it. 

The coolest part is that he did all the restoration on it.  It was just an old beatup piano to begin with . It is dated back to around 1910 and it actually was in the original salt city theatre from what I hear. I should take pictures of the antique and detailed.  I love that I will be able to tell my kids that their Dad fixed it up for me and did all the restoration.  A family hierloom it will be.

The funny part is that I had NO idea what he was doing. All he did was tell me that he was "working on something" and then disappear day after day after day for hours and hours and it was a good month or so long that he was doing it.  If I didn't know he was working on something I woulda  thought for sure he was having an affair, with as much time as he was gone.  The good thing is that he always came home smelling like sweat and covered in dirt and dust so it reassured me that no woman in the right mind was messing around with him. lol .
If people would have just told me that I would get amazing surprises like this if I got married I woulda done it a LONG time ago. Instead they gotta beat around the bush and talk about how fullfilling and loving it is and yadda yadda yadda. jokes. I Love the husband.

o course he got the reward JO...he still has me. lol
And yes...someone else can have Mas piano. I don't really see a reason for two of them...not to mention I would never want to have a house big enough for 2 of them.
