Our weekend was really fun- it included spending a day with my Aunt Vera learning to sew curtains, a trip to Pittsburg (& down memory lane) to hang with my brother, & lots of family, fun, & good laughs. What it did not include, was- sleep. To make a long story short- Jett did not sleep at all on Saturday night. We were up with him literally ALL night. I am not sure what went wrong, but he hasn't slept that terrible since we brought the kid home from the hospital. Needless to say, I was not a happy mama. In fact, I remember saying around 4:40 a.m. "I don't think I'm cut out for this." I regretted feeling that way as soon as the words left my mouth- but man, oh, man...it was a rough night. Needless to say, I was exhausted on Sunday. When I don't get enough sleep (or any sleep in this case), I get physically ill- dizzy, naseous, terrible headaches, earaches, sore throat- weird.bad.stuff. Top that with a heavy dose of crabby & cranky, & it ain't pretty, lol. My poor husband...I hope he gets a special crown in Heaven for putting up with me!
On our way home on Sunday, Jared informed me that he would be taking a PTO day on Monday so he could give me a break & let me catch up on some rest. Bless his heart! So yesterday, I got an hour & a half nap, spent the entire day in my jammies, spent too much time on facebook, ordered Chinese take-out for dinner, & barely left the couch! Jared & Jett ran some "guy" errands, played outside, & enjoyed the day together. I am telling you- it was AMAZING! I feel so refreshed today, & so thankful for a husband that loves me so much! I am spoiled rotten & blessed beyond measure.
So Jared, when you read this-
Thank you so much for my day of rest & relaxation! It was exactly what I needed! I am so thankful & blessed to have a husband who takes such good care of me! You have the kindest, most giving heart of anyone I have ever known, & I couldn't go through this life without you. I love you so much! You are the best husband a gal could dream of (& it doesn't hurt that you're pretty cute, too ;) !!!!
