Love him.

Things have been so crazy/busy/hectic/stressful.

Just a little background… Mike and I have both been doubling up our classes for the last couple of months. I’ve been working 2 hrs each night and Mike has been working his normal 8 hour days. All of this along with making sure Max is happy and well taken care of has been really exhausting.

We’ve forgotten about dinner about 3 times in the past couple of weeks and even went to bed without it once. Our clean laundry has been sitting in a huge pile in our room for I don’t know how long.

I think sometimes I forget why we are doing all of this and I get frustrated and I feel like I just want to give up. Mike can always tell when I’m feeling this way and he will always almost immediately begin telling me how nice the apartment looks when he gets home (even when it’s a total mess),  and how beautiful I look (even when I hadn’t even had time to shower that day), and how delicious our top ramen dinner was.

Then I remember that I’m married to the most wonderful man in the world.

I had an interview on Thursday for a job as a transcriptionist. A few hours later, I got a phone call with an offer for the position. After a really long and busy day, I came home to these:

It just made it all worth it. How did he know that these would mean the world to me that day? I’m not even a big flower person, but somehow these almost brought me to tears.
