I can't recall if I mentioned that Alex is doing graduate school right now? Well, he is. His school is probably a large contributor to my less frequent posting and my grumpy tone.
The other day I was having a rare moment of sympathy for him, and I said, "Well, you are either worrying about school, worrying about work, worrying about church business, or in a good mood. And if you are in a good mood, I realize that it is a good time for me to vent all of my frustration to you, so you pretty much have only stress right now." This was a momentous revelation to me, even as it came out of my mouth. I realized that it is time for me to quit complaining.
So we are doing it together. And we have had the happiest few days in a long time.
