"When you are sick, it all falls apart." - The Engineer
I take that as a compliment. I take it to mean that when I am not sick, I am the stitch that holds the whole quilt together and keeps us all comfy, cozy, well fed and dressed in clean clothes. O.k. so I am one of the stitches, an integral one to be sure but, were it not for The Engineer...well, it just wouldn't work.
When I say I am just going to lie down for a moment, he knows that I am a very sick mama. He knows this because I never just lie down for a moment at 6 PM, or any other time that is not my normal bed time, unless I am indeed unwell.
He brings me a glass of water and some aspirin without me asking. He wants to know if he can pick up anything from the store for me. He lets me sleep until morning.
He does the dishes...
...sometimes the laundry.
He gets our girl in the bath and ready for bed.
So you see...it doesn't all fall apart, it just gets a little fuzzy 'round here.
...and I will return the favor when you get sick.
Thank you my love.
