My Wife sends a meeting request...

My wife sent me meeting request. She, after 20+ years, has finally learned how to get a commitment out of me.

The meeting is for Saturday night and the subject is finances. I have done the family finances for at least fifteen years. We have both been in the same jobs during that whole time and have, until the most recent stock market calamity and my health prognosis, been on pace for a comfortable retirement. Now we, after our 401K's have been reduced to 201K's and the assumed fact that my earning years have been shortened, have to go to plan B.

I have until Saturday night to define plan B.

I kid her about how comfortable I'm leaving things for her next husband. She says there will NEVER be another husband. She says it with such a degree of enthusiasm that I wonder if I should be insulted. I would like to think I was so much fun she couldn't wait to do it again.

There is no accounting for taste.


  1. 4 teaspoons of medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil and 3 teaspoons of coconut oil 3 times per day. 1/2 teaspoon or 1000mg capsules of cinnamon two times per day. Give it 45 days to see if you are one of the 3 out of 4 people it helps.

  2. Sorry I have no magic recipe including coconut oil. But if you try it, I hope it helps.
    I hope your plan B works too.

    (If you arrange things so comfortable for suitors, she will have to beat them off with her umbrella). I would react the same as she did.

  3. Philippians 4:6 will take care of it too!

  4. Swarf: Prominent doctor Andrew Weil notes coconut oil's potentially damaging effects on blood cholesterol and opines that, unless more research can demonstrate its good health effects, you shouldn't use it [source: Weil]

  5. L.Q.: She has a bunch of umbrellas! Some, quite large.

    Anne: Thanks. I have lots of people praying for me.
