I've been meaning to write about the Women of Faith conference.
I've been meaning to post the cruise pictures.
I need to post a picture for this week.
I need to do about a million things.
I'm behind in things I want to be done.
But, as I told John the other day (as he is feeling very, very much the same way), there's really nothing that can't be put off for a hair longer and if it means that putting it off gives him a few minutes of sanity, he needs to do so.
Of course, putting it off just gives me so much more anxiety (and it does him too) that that's not really feasible for either of us to actually do happily (put stuff off) but at least saying it makes us feel like it's an option.
*An aside bonus was that I was telling this to John the other day in counseling...that he needed to just let things sit a bit if he needed them to so that he could relax and take care of himself and my counselor said she couldn't believe that those words were coming out of my GAD/OCD mouth. Then again, do as I say, not as I do mentality could certainly explain that!*
So anyway, as a compromise, I am going to post the Bermuda pictures so that's one thing off my list (though not in the order I wanted things done!) and I can move on to others that are more tangible in the house. Like make vacuum lines. Yesterday the kitchen got the 'toothbrush and baking soda' deep cleaning treatment and today is swapping out summer/winter clothes. Oh, and eating chocolate-covered strawberries. John secretly (or not so) thinks this is Luke telling me he likes chocolate like his brother. I don't want to burst his bubble, but even though I've never liked chocolate much, I have always liked chocolate-covered strawberries because I like strawberries so much.
But this is when Matthew started to really let me know he loved chocolate, so who knows?
First, me at 22w1d (and of course, Dixie!):
The obligatory 1st (of many) self-portraits as we waited!
John playing at Horseshoe Bay with his camera!
One of us doesn't like to put on sunscreen. Can you tell which one?
Water's a bit too cold for me (and Luke) still!
This water was WAY warmer, but still chilly just getting in!
We got a rainstorm, but it was ok because we just covered our stuff and hung out in the water. It was like being in a big, beautiful hot tub!
It started to *really* rain while John was dorkeling and he came back to me hiding out under the umbrella...Thankfully he angled it better so I didn't have to keep holding it!
John was supposed to *warn* me about waves because I was wearing my contacts. This is how he warned me. He'd take a picture like this, and then he'd say, "Big one." Thanks.
Always, always, always in our hearts and on our minds.
As we were leaving the port at St. George's....cute, cute little town and check out the rain we missed!
