Wow! I can't believe it has been an entire week since I last posted. I don't know what happened...I guess I was just too busy living life. I'm wrapping up a huge project at work, which I have to have finalized and submitted by this Friday or I can't go with my family to Maine, so that has taken up a lot of my time. Plus, fun family stuff...and insanity. Seriously, this six day program is tough! It requires a major commitment, and I'm loving it. I'm REALLY seeing and feeling results! I'll give my Week 3 update tomorrow, so that's all I'll say for today.
We had a nice week, which we capped off with Father's Day today. I'm so lucky to have the partner that I have. He's an incredible man and an amazing father and I couldn't imagine my life without him. I know I'm sounding pretty sappy here, which typically isn't my style, but I think sometimes these things need to be said. My kids are REALLY lucky to have the father that they have, and I don't ever take that for granted. Here's a perfect example. Today was Father's Day (as if you didn't already know that), and I told Paul to choose something fun to do. I told him we would do anything he wanted. So, for the entire week he didn't say anything about what he wanted to do, even though I kept bugging him. Finally, yesterday afternoon he told me that we all had to be in the car at 7:30 this morning so that we could go do something for Father's Day. But, he wouldn't tell us where we were going. We ended up in the car at 7:45 this morning, and Paul proceeded to drive about 15 minutes south to a U Pick Strawberry Farm. We spent about an hour and a half picking 16 quarts of strawberries. Sounds like a great way to spend the morning, right? I think so. But, you know what, it's not Paul's favorite thing to do. The kids and I get excited for strawberry picking every year, but Paul doesn't care either way about it. He comes with us most years because he enjoys family time, but it's not his ideal activity. So, why did he choose to do it today? Because I mentioned yesterday that I was afraid the kids were going to miss strawberry picking this year because we are leaving for Maine next weekend and won't be back for a week. So, rather than choose an activity that he really enjoys, he took us strawberry picking so that the kids would get to go. I'm telling you, it's the small things that matter the most.
