There I said it, and I won't take it back

I don't blog much about my sweet hubby, him and I, I and him. Us. (Our little quote off of Pirates of the Caribbean, the second one. "You and me, me and you. Us") He's just not much on me proclaiming to the world my warm, fuzzy feelings for him. Never has been a fan of PDA-Public Displays of Affection. He gives me some lame excuse about being disgusted as a young child, by seeing PDA from his older brothers. He since has convinced me that PDA is not a measure of our love. He has gone so far as to say, it is immature and shows insecurity about ones relationship. It is a need to reassure others of the strength of a relationship.
That's just the way he sees it. I came to grips with the fact, that living life with Joe and no PDA, is better than no Joe. So, I am not bitter or anything about that. Sarcasm No, really...after 7 years I get it, and his argument does make since.
My point in saying all that, is to explain why I try to refrain from going on and on about what an awesome husband I have. Because he knows I can do it. How many times has he opened a card I wrote for him and rolled his eyes. His usual wording is, "You wrote a book!!" When he finishes reading it, 5 minutes later, he lets out a big sigh and says, "Thanks."
Sometimes I just can't help myself. I have been really good about not getting all mushy about him on here. But it's 1 am, my thyroid medicine isn't working on helping me sleep yet. I am trying not to think about the fact that I am weaning my 8 month old, against my will. It's really sad... And, I found my mind wondering to my wonderful husband. I just rolled out of my warm bed to come blog in a cold freezing basement, because I couldn't help myself.
I am trying to keep this short, just for you!!
When you kiss me good-bye in the morning, and I'm more asleep than awake.
When you are at work tomorrow, and I'm still in bed.
When you check my blog on your plan, and I'm still in bed.
Just know that I love you and thanks for loving me. You Rock!!!

I am not really sure what the word "ROCKS" means in todays terms. Could you define that for me? However, Joe, your in-laws sure love you a lot. We are sure glad God brought you into our family. We think you are TERRIFIC! Is that anything like ROCKS?
