... this is what I left as I traveled to my aerobics convention this weekend...
... and when I came home, it had been transformed into this...
... and after a week of not sleeping in my own bed, I came upon this...
... all thanks to this...
... aka the best hubby in the world!!
(WAY better than the 'wiggle the nose powers'!!)
As I was enjoying a weekend of workouts and girl talk, Jerry did the following:
-- gave a presentation in Arizona
-- jumped on a plane (that was delayed, so called our amazing neighbor to arrange to pick up the kiddos later than planned - as in 2:30 in the morning when his plane finally came in!!)
-- got the kids home and in bed, only to get up 5 hours later to:
-- take the kids to karate
-- go from there to swimming lessons
-- came back home for general conference (and even somehow got the twins to take notes during the first session!)
-- hauled the big furniture back up stairs, enlisting the help of all of the kids, and managing Joshy at the same time
-- fixed a broken part on the washing machine and kept up on the laundry
-- re-assembled all of the beds and dressers that had been taken apart
-- took Sarah to ballet
-- came back for the 2nd session of conference
-- took the kids to McDonalds for some fun times
-- with ALL kids in tow, went shopping and picked out:
-- this darling room rug for the boys room...
... cute coordinating rugs for the kitchen...
... a bouquet of flowers to welcome me home...
... and even my favorite type of senty candle to be burning in the kitchen when I got home...
-- and stayed up until 12:30 getting all of the arranging of the furniture finalized and bedding put back on the beds
-- put the kiddos down
-- got up on Sunday, cooked eggs benedict for the kiddos
-- did the conference thing again
-- made a full-fledged Sunday dinner (complete with pork loin roast and mashed potatoes)
-- all the while finishing up his own preparations for flying out to Germany today to give yet another presentation...
All I can say is right now I am feeling like the luckiest woman alive! Thank you so much, honey, for all that you did this weekend. You are truly one AMAZING man!!
