Oh, what a wonderful birthday I had yesterday! All of Josh’s kind words and all of your well-wishes just made me smile. Thank you, thank you!
I enjoyed time alone in the morning at Starbucks. Josh stayed home with Mack (sort of) and Molly while I went to Ruby’s school Easter Party, which was so fun. Then, Josh stayed home while I went to The Melting Pot with two fabulous friends. We even got to roam THE CONTAINER STORE, and I just can’t tell you how that refreshes the core of who I am.
HOWEVER, YOU MUST HEAR THIS…. Nothing that I did yesterday compared to what Josh handled and the way he handled it. Our washing machine quit on us Monday afternoon. Not a fun thought for a family of five. Not a fun thought at all. I told him I felt like I was having anxiety about all the dirty clothes piling up around here. What is a mom to do? Load up three kids and go to the Laundry Mat? Oh, please don’t make me do it. Well, Josh found a place that took all of our dirty clothes, sorted them, washed, dried and folded them and had them ready yesterday at 5:00. AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this man more because of this act of service. I didn’t know I could love him more…..but, oh baby, I do.
So today I get to focus on cleaning, straightening, making up beds and enjoying this beautiful day instead of laundry! Yipee.
I hope to post some pictures from our week and Mack’s birthday a little later today. Time is flying by!
