Sorry, He's Taken


I am all in a state of twitterpation (if that's a state anyway). On Friday morning I woke up determined to be positive. Weekends have been a little hard since we started building the house because adorable hubby spends them all at the house. So Friday has sort of become like a Monday to me. I was giving myself the pep talk in my head, "come on Heather, your husband is off building you a brand new house, face the laundry with courage." Then I realize someone is looking at me. Turns out is my husband. Now usually the man is way gone before I realize that morning has hit (he is an insanely early riser). But, there he was. Then he says to me, "ask me again how I would spend my last day." I asked him a week ago and he said, "don't ask me today." I didn't know what he was talking about, just thought he was being weird. So I say, "how would you spend your last day?" He says, "me and you, nobody else and we are doing that today." After trying to figure out what he is talking about I finally realize that he has a room in Salt Lake, babysitters for ALL of our kids and that in just a couple hours we would be off for 27 hours all alone. Sigh...he is the best. We had the best time! We shopped for furniutre and had long talks, we laughed ourself silly when we couldn't figure out how to get out of IKEA and then when we did get out we were in fog so thick that we were making up horror story scenarios that were hillarious....anyway...let's just say that 27 hours is going to keep me smiling for a long time to come!

You are not the first ones to get lost - stuck in Ikea. I love it!! (that you got trapped, not Ikea). Wasn't Friday's fog bizarre? We were out in it as well. Could have been anywhere as you could see nothing. I liked to think it was London. Call me because I need more fun details. :)

wow.... Lyndon deserved a big award.
I got all excited the other day because Rick called me from work and asked if I wanted to have a date night. I couldn't believe it! I got all worked up to realize he was wanting to go night fishing. : )

Very sweet. It is nice to know that they do have a slight bit of romance in there somewhere isn't it. Kudos to him.

Some kids in our ward are doing a Valentine's day fundraiser for a scout thing...guess who signed their husband up to get her flowers and candy?...Yup! Too bad he didn't learn from yours!

That's SO great.
How neat that you are building.
If you need somebody to get excited about floor plans and little wall niches you just come on over!

Your story made me think, "You know, there is love after marriage, and five kids, and a small rental, and all the trials that lead up to those things." Reading your blog reminds me of the simple joys in life, and that they are REAL. For anyone who dares complain about their husband I say, "You picked him!" The truth is, they all show they care differently. Thanks for your example..
