Cookies make Haylee Cry
The other day I was feeling a little down. I didn't really say anything, and I tried not to show it, but I was feeling "bummed." The house hunt has been a long unsuccessful process. It seems like every time we find a house we like it is either on a busy street, too small, too expensive, or in an area we don't like. I thought we had finally found "the house" but Darin (bless his heart) noticed that it had a poor roof. Turns out it would be very expensive to fix, and with that cost added to what they were asking, put it out of our price range again. A few other things happened throughout the day, slowly raising my blood pressure/stress level.
I went out to go do some things, which took longer than I was planning, which made me more stressed--but then I came home to my favorite things!!! My first favorite thing--I came home to my wonderful husband. Second, I came home to a clean home, which Darin had done while I was away. Third, I came home to some beautiful flowers. So, at this point, I was feeling pretty emotional, but I was holding it together until he said, “I also got you these because I know you like them” and he brought them out--those pink and white Animal Cookies. I lost it! I started bawling (not usually like me) I thought that was so nice! I felt silly that something like that would make me so emotional! I am just glad that I have Darin! He didn't even make me feel dumb that I cried! He always seems to do the right things at the right times! What a guy!
