such a selfless act - secretive giving is the best thing evah!
well, I decided that one thing I could do without buttons was sort through some of the still-unpacked mess that has been haunting our bedroom for months.
In that mess, I somehow ended up going through old memories and eventually finding my way to the journals my wife wrote, but instructed me not to read. Well, I read them anyways and ended up learning quite a bit about her and our relationship. I discussed this with her when she got home and I think we are closer because of it.
Some practical things with buttons needed to be done, and so instead of tip-toeing around the logistics of them, I just decided that my biggest lesson was learned already and it was time to move ahead with life.

This was incredibly successful by my standards:
