Boo on failed fertility treatments. Boo on cramps. Boo on mood swings.
But, looking on the bright side:
Christmas is in less than a month! And we’re going to Califo! We have the tree set up, our stockings are hung, we’ve even begun wrapping presents! (And by we, I mean Spencer).
We had an awesome Thanksgiving which we spent with awesome friends! So much fun! So much good food! The sweet potatoes… ahhhhhhhh…the sweet potatoes. Don’t even get me started on the pie.
Lizzy is sleeping in my lap. Little lamb.
I have awesome friends. Some near, and some far away, but I am so grateful to have so many wonderful people in my life.
My husband is THE BEST!
Exhibit A: Even though I ALWAYS pick “As Sisters in Zion” as the opening hymn for family home evening, he is happy to oblige. He even knows all the words.It’s going to be a good week. I have big plans to make some Christmas ornaments and do some baking.
Exhibit B: He watches “Confessions of a Shopaholic” with me when I get to select the movie. Even if that is the same movie I picked last time and the time before that and possibly the time before that.
Exhibit C: He sends me funny text messages during the day that say things like “You are the nectarine of my eye.” (Boo on apples, ew.)
Exhibit D: He is very forgiving. Even though I told Spencer, this morning while we were eating waffles, that I hoped his fork handle would slide into a puddle of syrup on his plate (which everyone knows you shouldn’t wish on your worst enemy), he didn’t get mad. I took it back by the way. I was just joking, but I know I crossed a line that should never be crossed. It will never happen again.
Exhibit E: He insists that I take a nap while he makes dinner on Sundays. I feel so spoiled when he does that, but I really do appreciate the break!
We’ll talk soon!
