I can’t believe all the stuff that happened this past month, from a 10 day vacation where we made a triangle (although someone told William we made a square and grandma made a line, and now I’m confused, because maybe we DID do a square but I’m too lazy to figure it out), because we went to Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa and then back home.
My job has picked up a little bit, my boss is trusting me with a little more responsibility, which I’m really happy about. We’ve picked our Halloween costumes — we’re the Scooby Doo family this year. And William wants a Scooby Doo birthday party for his birthday.
I was just getting through the day yesterday at work with a headache, not enjoying myself, really, except when my coworker left early unexpectedly, but my headache was just getting worse and worse. I think the weather must be changing or something, or allergies are flaring, I’m not sure, but it’s all in my sinuses… and the last couple of weeks I’ve noticed that I have a high-pitched whine in my ears like an old tube TV got left on somewhere … all allergy related, I’m sure. I can’t believe I’m old enough to have tinnitus.
Anyway, the headache I was fighting yesterday flared into a disabling migraine overnight and I just wanted to cry when I woke up this morning. Instead of crying, I took an allergy pill and pain meds and laid back down in bed, leaving William to his father. They woke me at 11 AM to tell me they were going to Ruby’s to get some lunch… because this month, if kids dress in their Halloween costumes, they eat for free.
I just have to say, this man I’m married to blew me away with his love when we were dating. As a husband, he is so intuitive and he cares so much about me. He always seems to know just what I need without me ever having to say a word. And while I’m so sad to be missing out on this fun outing today with my boys, I’m just so grateful for the love he shows to me, for letting me recover in quiet. As a father, I adore watching them together, because the love they have for each other is so evident, and that they’re doing something special together just the two of them and I just know they’ll come home with some fun and silly stories that I’ can’t wait to hear all about from both of them.
So, I kissed them goodbye and sent them on their way in their “mystery van.” Well, William licked me goodbye, because that’s what doggies do, you know. There’s a part of me that’s wondering if they’ll let Tony eat for free, too, because he’s just such an awesome person.
