Well, we have had quite the week. Owen with the flu, and me with "pregnancy sickness" as a daily "activity" and then myself getting the flu. Not fun for any of us, but Nate has been a real trooper. I am so grateful that I have him as my husband and Valentine. Here are just some of the things he did this week.
- Woke up and cleaned up the vomit Owen had got all over me, the floor and Owen
- Bisselled Owen's room the next day
- Took out all the furniture in our room and Bisselled our room after Owen left some more yummies all over our floor
- He rearranged the room by himself
- Went and picked up dinner when I was too sick to cook, and it tasted so good (and it stayed down :)).
- He got me out of the house on a short date to get ice cream, even though I was feeling awful. I sure felt better after :) I can always use a little ice cream
- He went grocery shopping even though it is one of his least favorite things to do
- He has let me rest basically from 1pm yesterday, until now.. taking care of Owen, asking if I need anything, and not complaining that I have been in our bed or on the coach for the last 24 hours.
- Went and got a redbox and brought me home a treat- Peanut M and M's one of my favorites
- Brought me some flowers for an early Valentine's gift
- Gave me a blessing last night and fulfills his other priesthood duties.
- Took Owen to church without even making a sound
- Recently he applied for and accepted a new job at his work as a Junior Project Manager- This is the third job he has moved to within the company and the third job he has accepted. That says a lot. He is a hard worker, quick learner, and gets along with others. I have full confidence that he will do a great job at his new position
Thanks Nate for being the best husband and Valentine's ever!
I hope that all of you have a great Valentine's Day! I am also grateful for a wonderful family (both Hayes and Peterson) and friends and neighbors... Love you all lots!
P.S. something cute Owen did this week. He was next to me by the toilet when I happened to have a vomit attack.. He said, "EWE." and then a few moments later said, "I love you." It was so sweet. He is such a good and loving boy. We are excited for little miss Lydia to come anytime :) but we are trying to be patient.
