Since I began my new job, I've been working crazy hours. Because of this, I haven't had time to mow the lawn. Anne-Marie thought she'd help me out by doing it for me, but stepped in a hole and severely twisted her ankle in the process.
She drug herself to the kitchen floor where she used her phone to get a hold of me. I had to leave the insanity at work so I could take care of her and our confused kids.
I took care of them until bedtime, then drove back to work to finish what I was doing. I left there at 2 AM and got to bed at 3.
I'm home today because Anne-Marie can't drive herself to Seattle Cancer Care. She can barely walk, even today. And I'll probably go back to work tonight.
It's times like this that make you realize that living apart from family and friends can make life really difficult.
But at the same time, I'm learning to embrace difficult. Ease is for novices and children. So, really, there's no time for a pity party here. I got too much to do.
In the timeless words of B.J. Thomas:
Show me that smile again
Don't waste another minute on your cryin'
We're nowhere near the end
The best is ready to begin (oohoohoohOOHoooooh)
As long as we got each other...
We can take anything that comes our way
Baby, rain or shine
All the time
We got each other
Sharing the laughter and love
