I feel like some of us make alot of choices in life that are just like that. The idea of it, the cosmetics of it, the uniqueness of it is the attraction. But the structure, the framing, the very core of its foundation is not steady and will crumble if you live there too long. I think people who begin relationships, careers, or choose a new religion often get sucked in by the wood floors and granite countertops. But they are not looking at the cracks in the brick or the bad wiring in the walls. It will be "pretty" for awhile but eventually it is not going to be able to protect you and sustain you.
Thanks for letting me explore that metaphor. :)
Meanwhile, Grant is still sick in bed. This morning was the 3rd morning in a row that he has woken up with a fever over 101 degrees. He told me this morning that he is beginning to feel like he is in the movie "Groundhog Day". Poor thing. I've got him powered up with Gatorade, Tylenol, his prescription meds, ice packs, blankets, golf magazines and the xbox. Also, for dinner last night I made a BIG dinner that will provide lots of leftovers for the rest of the week. Hopefully he will be able to eat something of substance now besides just soup. I am so ready for him to get better. It makes me sad... plus I haven't hugged or kissed him since Sunday and that is really starting to get old. He is getting pretty behind at work though and that is stressing him out.
He has been on the internet a little bit starting the house hunt again. I just can't do it yet. I'm just tired and not in the mood to dive back in to house hunting. I think after this weekend I will be able to look again.
In other news: Jim and Pam get married tomorrow. I have been waiting for this day for a long time. I am SO excited. Because they are not television characters. They are real people.
