Let me tell you about a boy I know...

You may have been able to tell from my last few posts that my life has been a little busy and crazy the past week. I have been so stressed out that I'm sure I haven't been the most pleasant person to be around. But Doc, even though he's had his own stress to deal with too, has been so good to me in so many different ways that he's made it all bearable and easier to get through. I'm too tired to write coherent paragraphs so here, in semi-bullet form, are a few ways my wonderful husband has shown me he loves me. He...

...washed and dried multiple loads of laundry over the weekend.

...folded the clean laundry (his least favorite chore).

...drove to my parents' house when I ran out of time to pick up our house guest for the week.

...made me lunch and brought it upstairs to me while I got ready to attend a wedding shower.

...cooked dinner for me every night while I sat at the sewing machine or smocked or worked on diaper cakes.

...fixed the hot water in our shower.

...took both dogs out several times without me.

...sat through dvr'ed episodes of The Bachelorette with me so I could get caught up.

...unloaded the dishwasher.

...made the bed both Saturday and Sunday.

...washed the kids' sheets and remade the bunk beds when I mentioned that we might have company.

And then, as if he hadn't done enough already, today he...

...showed up at my office while I was working late with some of these:

...and some of these!

He knows how much colorful flowers make me happy and that I have another crazy week ahead of me. These flowers sitting on my desk are exactly what I need to make it all better. I have a feeling they'll make me smile every time I look at them.

So, question for you, dear readers: can I plant these when I finally bring them home? They're gerber daisies potted in a small planter. I've never tried to grow them before. Do they like sun? Shade? Heat? Or should I just keep them in a pot inside? Will they be dead in a couple of days?

Thanks for all you do for me, Doc.  It definitely does not go unnoticed. I love you tons. You're my favorite!
