By Sherry Greer
In past posts I have talked about the relationship that my wife and I have had when dealing with me being Sherry. It obviously hasn’t been easy with us going to counseling, the arguments, the not trusting, etc. As time has gone on and being quarantined situations have come up where I (we) have had the opportunity to discuss Sherry. Through those talks I have regained her trust and she has realized that I am still the same person (her loving husband).
Recently we were talking about me going out and at the end of the discussion she said that she wanted to take me shopping, my jaw dropped!! I was amazed on how she could go from just about hating to look at me in the beginning to saying that, WOW. I truly don’t know if I could do that.
So…my wife received a 30% off coupon from Kohl’s and the weekend of August 7-9 there was a no sales tax in Ohio. I figured this was a great opportunity to remind her of what she said! On that Friday we went to Kohl’s. We first went to a jewelry store where I bought her some jewelry for our 30th wedding anniversary. She wanted to exchange what I bought her for an addition to her wedding ring.
After leaving it was my turn! We walked into the local Kohl’s and went to the clearance section. We took about an hour looking through the racks picking out multiple tops, cropped pants and even a cute romper. As we were pulling things to potentially buy she would make comments like “this would look cute on you” or “this is beautiful”! She also said that when she’s shopping for herself in the future she’s going to want to get something for Sherry. After picking out the clothes we moved over to the jewelry section to look for a wedding ring that I could wear when out but couldn’t find one in my size.
We also looked in the “Intimates” section for a waist cincher but couldn’t find one that I wanted. Upon getting home my wife asked me if I was going to try my new purchases on! She was genuinely excited to see the clothes on me. As I tried each article on my wife made positive comments about each and everything fit except one black top. We decided to take that back on Sunday.
After breakfast we went to another Kohl’s to exchange the top. We couldn’t find one but she picked out the rust colored top and beautiful LBD! We had to do some grocery shopping so we went to the nearby Walmart to do that and we found a ring there as well. Obviously the ring is fake and was only $10 but in reality it’s priceless because she not only picked it out but it’s a symbol of our love and her willingness to be open to Sherry.
After getting home I again tried on the new purchases and when modeling the LBD she asked me to turn around and jokingly said “you bia…” because it looked really good on me! When we were walking out of Kohl’s on Sunday she asked me if I was happy and my response was “no, I’m astonished”. My outing with my friend Lori and dinner with Kandi to follow soon.
