So I tend to be the type of person that lets circumstances dictate my mood. Afterwards I think why did I let that ruin me but in the midst of it I just don’t see it. So last night Marty got home early from work (yeah!) and he had some time with the kids and then said he wanted to take us out to dinner. Of course I agreed, this meant not having to figure out dinner. We go out to the car and it is really cloudy outside but no rain. Well, the second we pull the van out of the driveway it starts to sprinkle. In the next two minutes it goes from sprinkle to downpour and extremely high winds. Then when we get to the next light, the power is out! Well, it was really storming so we decided instead of trying to gets the kids inside a restaurant in pouring rain and winds, we should probably just go back home. So needless to say I was frustrated and letting circumstances dictate my mood. Marty decided he would go by himself and pick us up some food. Before he left he wanted to help me feel better so he asked Graham and Abbie to do one thing that would make me smile.
As soon as Marty left Graham immediately ran upstairs. I thought maybe he just wanted to watch Marty leave from the upstairs window, but then he stayed upstairs. A few minutes later he came down stairs and said he wanted to show me something and to close my eyes. I went to the stairs and he had cleaned off all the toys! (Molly’s new thing is to take her toys and throw them over the gate at the top of the stairs) Then he asked me to come upstairs. He had cleaned up the hallway AND also his room! I have to say this was one of the most thoughtful things Graham has done for me. He was so incredibly sweet about it and definitely did make me smile .
