My Hero

Today Aaron gets the hero award. He totally saved my day and all he had to do is tell me to take a nap.

The whole thing started when I got up this morning. I was kinda tired but we had a few things to do, including finishing shopping, wrapping, etc. Then my Mom called and got under my skin (totally related to the holidays. Too long a story to get into). He asked me what was wrong. Rather than explode I told him that there was nothing wrong. Then a few more things happened and I really started to lose it. Picture if you will, a cracked window, but rather than leaving it be, imagine several people throwing pebbles at it. Yeah. Plink, plink, crash!

I blew up and he got to hear it all. He understood that I wasn't yelling at him but rather yelling my problems to him. So he didn't react negatively at all, he just listened and offered the appropriate consolatory comments. He's good like that. He offered to make me a cup of tea. Then suggested I sit and relax on the couch for a little while and brought me my new magazines. He also offered to answer all phone calls for a while so that no one disturbs me. He then suggested I take a nap. I told him I wasn't sleepy. He didn't say a word when I turned on the news for a while (he usually rolls his eyes and grumbles a bit). Still, I was out pretty quickly.

When I woke up, two hours later, all was right in the world. Huzzah!
