Well, things haven’t been easy lately. I might have mentioned it before, but Wade and I seem to be having trouble adjusting to our new “dating” status. I think it’s been more difficult than either of us expected. I don’t think I understood how awkward things are for him because I was too busy dealing with how awkward it was for me.
I truly believe that we’ve been through worst of this. I mean we were together for how long trying to keep it quiet??? That was absolutely miserable, but this new stage is definitely throwing some new and different challenges our way. Surely, as people get used to the idea of us being together, things will be easier. We just have to be supportive of each other and work through these growing pains as a team.
When Wade and I are on the same page, we are unstoppable. It’s not always easy to be on the same page when we’re running in 800 different directions with work, finishing school, trips and friends. So, yes, we could improve the communication a bit, but there is absolutely no question that we want only the best for one another. That’s one of the things I absolutely love about Wade. I’ve never felt so supported by someone not in family. It’s a great feeling.
Okay, now for the everyday life stuff…
We went to the Rangers’ game last night. The weather could not have been better. We hung out with great people and drank beer on the balcony. It was really fun while it lasted, but when we left I came to the realization that I never should have been there. Rarely, in my 4 years with the Rangers did I see a spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend hanging out on the balcony with the Rangers employees. Not to say it never happened, but those occasions were few and far between. Neither one of us thought about it beforehand, but I can see how it would have been awkward for Wade and it certainly was a little strange for me. We decided that if we go to a game, we’ll get seats and sit in them, unless there is a party where other “guests” are there. That was an easy solution.
After a long time talking, a few tears and lots of hugs, we went to sleep. Archie and Mack nuzzled their way under the covers as they usually do. Early this morning, the covers were wrapped so tight around my legs, I couldn’t move. Mack was laying on top of the cover on the right side of my legs and Archie was under the covers on my left side. Wade had thrown one leg on top of the covers, creating the perfect “unmovable” storm. I felt Archie’s belly to make sure he was breathing and…nothing. I said his name a few times…nothing. I ripped the blankets up, waking Wade and Mack, to shake Archie…nothing. Finally, Wade started yelling at him and he woke up. I was so scared by that, I was shaking. I couldn’t go back to sleep because my mind was racing. I don’t know about puppies under the covers any more…
I finally got out of bed at 7 and found puke on the landing outside our bedroom. I pre-treated and went downstairs to feed the dogs. As they ate, I tried to go back to sleep in the hammock, but that was impossible because they were constantly barking and jumping on and off the hammock. Wade woke up around 8 and we talked a little more. He got ready to go to his golf lesson, I thoroughly cleaned the puke and we both left the house. He went to the golf course and I went to the grocery store. When I got home, I started laundry, did poop patrol and watered my plants…
|Look how big they are!!! The other morning,
I had the divine pleasure of watching a
hummingbird hum around my basil. It was awesome!
Wade’s got a ton of school to get done and I’m going to relax a bit. With my lack of sleep last night, I see a nap in my future. I’ll probably do a bit of cardio and take the dogs for walk before church this afternoon.
On a final note, I wanted to include a picture of Archie and Mack’s new favorite hobby. They look out the window and watch the neighbors, birds, and whatever else happens on Springmere Drive…
|Aren’t they the cutest?!?!|
I hope everyone has a great day.
Blessings and Happy Early Easter!!! HE is risen!!!
