I have a GREAT husband!!!

I know I don’t do enough to praise him and if I am not careful I cut him down, especially in front of family and close friends with things I get frustrated about.

BUT>>>>

He has been awesome!!!!

Yesterday I had to take my grandma to a doctors appointment because my sister is out of town.  The appointment was in the early afternoon.  I got back about 4 and promptly went and laid down because I knew I had a short time to rest before I went to work.  Even though he was tired, he got up with the boys since they were waking up from their naps so I could rest.  As I was getting ready to head out the door I made a comment, for him to pray for me since I was going to work all night with very little sleep.  I had only slept about 30 minutes and rested for an hour more, but couldn’t fall asleep.  Normally before working a night shift, I take a 2-3 hour nap.  He offered to take me to work, though it meant that he would get little sleep between his sleep issues and having to get up at 6:30 to come get me from work.  So we quickly got everyone ready to go out the door, since we had to leave within less than 5 minutes to get to work on time.

He was great this morning.  He put up with taking my grandma to get her labs done (that was planned yesterday since it was easier to do it after I got out of work), going to pick up her prescriptions, me finally changing out of my work clothes at my grandmas (he brought me a change of clothes), going to the post office to mail some papers to my dad for my grandma, then to William’s physical therapy.  When we got home from PT, I promptly went to bed 11:30ish am (27 hours awake, with the fore mentioned nap).  He kept the boys quiet and put them down for their naps do I could sleep.  He has even taken care of all the meals today (a job we usually share when I am home).

I am still tired, but very thankful for a kind and thoughtful husband who was so good today taking care of all of us.  I love you, Russ!!

    What a doll! For all we complain, when the chips are down they always seem to step up, don’t they? 🙂
