|Evan said, "I'm going to go over and stand by the plant." Okay...............?|
|I'll never tell them that these were meant for a grave.|
|They even got their sister Leia to work on it with them!|
And I'm so thankful for my little family who treat me so well!
This week, I learned again how important relationships and communication are. For me it's the difference between crazy and sane. We need our husbands, parents, sisters and brothers, friends...
I feel that my momentary lapses in sanity have to do with hormones too, since they happen like clockwork each month. The same time each month, I picture myself leaving with my kids and walking over the mountain like in the Sound of Music when the family escaped from the Nazis at the end. Why it is that we can't drive, I don't know. Why it is that Pat is not allowed to come? Because he watches too much baseball, and it drives me crazy. Then on top of everything, I get sick, and ALSO really stressed out about my callings, and can't sleep all night, and finally at 4:30am I'm tired of staring at him while he's sleeping, and I wake him up just to cry and yell at him, and what does he do? Behaves perfectly calm, and massages my hands and feet with lotion, and brushes my hair and lets me talk to him about everything that was stressing me out (which was what I needed in the first place, but there was too much baseball), and I can finally sleep.
The lesson in me telling you this is that I'm not crazy, and baseball is the devil. Oh, and I am wonderfully blessed with an awesome husband.
