What Technology am I grateful for?
Thinking only of the present I am truly grateful for my mobile phone today.
Generally I would hate to be so vapid and shallow, but my husband is in Melbourne (which means I don’t get to spend Valentines with my Valentine) so it’s the only way I can communicate with him today. We have been sending each other cheesy lovey-dovey text messages all morning. And I will get to talk to him tonight which I will be looking forward to all day.
Afternoons are always hard when you have kids. The boys and myself are getting tired and grumpy, I have to organise dinner for the three of us, do the dishes, clean up the house, do baths, get them to brush their teeth, give the baby a bottle and then put them both to bed. It’s a tiring process that I have come to dread every day as my toddler is a fussy eater and extremely strong-willed. He will go out of his way to make my life difficult if he is over tired.
With my husband away it makes my afternoons even more stressful but I just do what I have to do and then sit on the couch in a stupor when it’s all over and done. So having a phone call from my husband to look forward to makes it all a bit more bearable.
Happy Valentine’s Lovers.
