So, I've been working on redoing my blog for a while and finally finished. Almost. I wanted something a little simpler so I spent hours taking what was perfectly fine and changing it.
Obviously, the VERY BEST use of my time.
Anyway, because I had to actually do life in the process, lots of information was lost. Ok. Not actually a lot - except by blogroll. It vanished. I've been trying to piece it back together but - if you were on it, and now are not, and you care - be patient, I'll get you back on it ASAP.
Actually, one of the things I've been taking care of instead of actually finishing the blog re-do, is having a conversation with Trey. It's one I never thought we'd need to have but, after headlines this past week, I felt the need to sit down with him and have a heart to heart.
It went something like this.
"Baby, could you pause the Ranger playoff game for a sec. so we can talk?"
"Yes. It's very important and can't wait."
"Seriously? Do you know this is the first time in Ranger history that we're even in the Playoffs?"
"Yes, baby, I do - but this is big and I need you to listen...to hear me. Hear my heart."
Sometimes, I insert drama. Sometimes it works. Most of the time, not so much.
Deep sigh. "Ok." Pause exciting Playoff game. "What's up."
"Baby, this is about us. About our marriage. About our future."
"Oh, o.k. What's on your mind?"
"Well, you know those Chilean miners? How they were rescued this week? What a triumph it was that they all survived and made it out safely? A celebration of a world coming together to help? Well, I would think this goes without saying, but, apparently not because, well, it happened. So, here goes... (deep breath)
If you are ever trapped in a Chilean mine, trapped beneath the surface of the earth - fearing for your life - and are given the opportunity to invite three people to the site to be near you, to pray for you, and to be a strong presence for you above ground, please invite me but, for the love of all things good, don't also invite your mistress if you have one because, if you do, you'd be better off staying underground. Seriously. Stay there. You'll be safer."
