I had a post all ready and planned for today. It's Caden's 3rd birthday, you know. However, I can't find my camera to show you some of the pictures, and that is a definite picture post. I was going to write about Christmas, oh, and New Year's too. Then I thought, boy, it's late and I was going to go to bed at 8:30 because I was so tired. I decided the laundry needed to be finished first though. And while folding laundry I watched some movies on Hulu. Anyway, because I'm addicted and have a hard time turning off the computer I checked blogs again before I went to bed, and my sister-in-laws blog inspired me. So, you don't get Christmas or New Years, you get instead happy feelings about my husband.
Tonight my dear husband is probably freezing cold and not getting much sleep. Well, I take that back, he can fall asleep so fast and so easy it really is one of my pet peeves (just because I'm jealous, I sure wish that happened to me). He's on a Klondike with the scouts. I'm excited for him because he loves stuff like this. It would probably be better if he wasn't sick, but hey, what can you do.
One of my brothers loves scouts. He lives and breaths it. It probably drives his wife crazy with how much he gets into it. When I lived with them for a summer I remember her saying that he was always buys certain things "in the name of scouts". I can now understand her frustration. Hehehe. And I admit that I've not been the happiest of souls in the last week or so. Not sure why, but I've not been a happy camper (choices, it's all about choices). Anyway, as I sit here alone and I think about Dan I just have to smile. When I was doing the dishes earlier I just had to smile (amazing during dishes, I know) because Dan had brought me home flowers to say sorry (for what, he isn't sure, and neither am I, but like I said, I wasn't happy). I haven't been nice to him, but he's still trying, even with all he has one his plate with work, his calling, family demands, and being sick on top of everything else. He's just a happy guy. And I love him. So here's to hoping that when he gets back I've made better choices to be happier (can I blame it on being a girl?) and that I'll start treating him better. Did I mention he even ran to the store for me last night at ten o'clock so I could make Caden's birthday cake. Eggs...needed 'em, didn't have 'em. He's a good guy. So, even though Elder Bednar has sort of discouraged this kind of stuff (I realize it's not a sacrament meeting, and I do tell Dan I love him, but you really can never hear it enough...even if it is on a public blog), I just wanted every one to know that I love my husband, and that he is a great guy. Thanks Nanc for "shouting it to the world" and inspiring me to do the same.
