Happy Valentines Day, folks!
Chad and I have celebrated this holiday a few ways in the past. Our second Valentine’s day, I was helping at a youth retreat so I decided to postpone our Valentine’s activities to February 27th. And that just to happened to be the day we got engaged! So, if it’s convenient, which it hardly ever is with all of the fan fair, we’ve celebrated on the 14th, but this year, we’ve decided to just celebrate on the 27th. As we should, right? Two birds, one stone.
I can’t tell you how crazy it’s been around here. You wouldn’t know it even if you’re a fly on the wall. Because really, I’ve just been crazy. I have had an aircast on since my surgery and it’s really been taken a told on me mentally. At first, I was really joyful because I knew that I was on the mend. But this Aircast has slowly started to become a pain. I wake up in the morning frustrated because I have to pee, but that means I have to swing my legs around and strap my foot into a boot. Then, there’s this dilemma – do I ice it now? Or later? Or both? Icing it takes me actually preparing ice. Which, surprise, has sort of become a nuisance. Then there has been the snow. Aircasts and snow? Not really a good idea. So, there is no playing in the snow. Also, I have been struggling to keep up with housework because if I’m on my feet to long, my foot starts to swell.
Right when I need a good slap for complaining, my husband does something differently. He goes up and fills my ice. He gets me something to drink. He carries my burden in a way that completely relieved the inner tension I’ve had. He even sent me shopping. Little did he know that I was feeling exceptionally dumpy, and a new dress was just the ticket. It’s a little hard to be served sometimes – it’s a humbling experience. But at the same time, feeling loved is the best.
