My Hero

Today I woke up sick- the barely get out of bed kind of sick. Inevitably we were slow getting out the door and I watched the bus go by our stop. I sped up to catch it a the next stop and took the corner too sharp and my back tire hit the curb. We made the stop but as I drove back up the hill I knew I had blown my tire. We made it home but I was worried I would be too sick to walk to and from the stop that afternoon in the 90 degree heat. Then Biddy threw up her breakfast and was running a temp. That was the final straw. I was stranded without a car and too sick to take care of my poor baby. I called Burke and despite his hectic work schedule and having no car since he drove in with the carpool- managed to make it home to rescue me. He fixed the tire, ran my errands for me, took care of Biddy and then took the other girls to the church for activities so I could go to bed early. He is my hero and I don't know what I would do without him. He makes everything better and is very patient with me when I am sick. I am so grateful for him today.

What a wonderful hubby! I wanted to let you know that I do read your blog. I get your emails every time you post and I love reading them even though I don't comment. I am so excited for your move. It sounds like it is going to be wonderful. I am sad that we never came and visited you in MA. It is our own fault. Hopefully we will be better about Texas. :) I need you to send me an email with your schedule while you are here in Utah in June. My June is already booked up like crazy and I can't remember when you are coming. I HAVE to see you so I need to know when you will be here and will be free. I hope you are feeling better. There is nothing worse than a sick baby and mommy. Love you!!
