"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

My Sweet Husband

Even though he doesn't read this blog, I thought I'd give a shout out to my good husband. He's not at all perfect, but sometimes I'm reminded of how great he is and I should tell people about it more often.

Yesterday was a really hard day for me. Kids and the stomach flu will make any mommy tired, but by about 4:00 yesterday I was in tears from exhaustion. This pregnancy alone is been sooooooo tiring and I've been so sick. Add a day of nothing but catching vomit, being vomited on, and cleaning it up- well it would make anyone cry. But especially a pregnant lady.

My friend Katie came by yesterday and after venting to her for a while she suggested we go to a late movie after kids were in bed. This is something I NEVER do. Ever. The last movie I saw in a theatre was in April 2008. The one before that was in April 2007. It really is a once a year thing for me to do. I'm always so hesitant to leave Cody at home with kids because it makes me crazy with guilt. But yesterday when he got home and saw the condition that I was in, he didn't think twice when I said I wanted to get away. He was so sweet and even asked if I needed him to run up to the ATM to get cash for me. I love him. So we ordered a pizza, put kids to bed, I got myself cleaned up and I left.

What a fun night we had. The movie didn't start until almost 10:00 so that is really late for me to be out. We saw "He's Just Not That Into You" and I have to say it is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. So full of twists and turns and irony. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good chick flick.

I worry that Cody gets annoyed at what a bum I am on Saturday mornings. After feeling so bad Monday through Friday but having to fight through nausea to get kids taken care of, fed, dressed, entertained, etc...come Saturday I don't have much more to give. So lately on Saturday mornings Cody has done everything for the kids. I feel bad because Saturday is supposed to be HIS morning to take it easy, after having gotten up at 5:00 each morning. I really hope he doesn't think I'm a bum just lying around during the morning. It won't be like this forever. In about one month I'll have my energy back and the nausea will have subsided. I can't wait for that day, and I'm sure he can't wait either. Thanks Cody, for being so good to me.

Hey, taking care of the kids is definitely a full time job so you shouldn't feel guilty for taking it easy on Sat's. Sat morning is actually Jake's day to get up with Lyd's and he let's me sleep in because he knows how stressful it is taking care of kids all day. And I'm sure Cody feels the same way. So take advantage :)

Glad you got a night out with a friend. So I am going to have to disagree with you on the movie. Miles and I went and saw it and did not like it at all. But I am glad you like it.

I am glad you got to go out and watch a movie. You deserve to get away once in a while and I am sure your hubby knows that. I hope the kids feel better soon :)
