show me some mercy....

There are many, many, many reasons why I love my husband. However, two of the main reasons are that he is verrrrry forgiving and he shows mercy. And yesterday, he found out that I made a terrible mistake. A huge, terrible mistake. I have honestly never felt so bad about anything in a long time.

I was the one, that was there when the movers were packing our house. I was the one, who signed the paper proclaiming that they " had picked everything up." In my defense, I can say that I had Ivan and Connor with me that day also but...the blame is all mine. All mine people. Ben went to work on the house yesterday and not to long after, he came back to the hotel. He had just a huge look of dissapointment on his face. He wasn't say anything...just upset. I finally told him that he had to tell me what was going on...I couldn't just guess. And then he said, " Marie, you didn't have the movers pack my shed." I looked at him and realized that yes I had completely forgotten. His tools, his table saw, all of that, would not be able to come with us to Guam.

I tried calling the movers, but they said we had to re-schedule a move through the Navy. We explained that we couldn't do that because as of midnight tonight, our lease is over. Anything left will be thrown away. We can't go get a power of attorney right now because there is not enough time. We are going to have to pack it all in our cars and take it home.

If Ben had come and told me, that he forgot to pack my camera and my scrapbook stuff, I don't know what I would have done. Gone through the roof probably. Instead he just hugged me and told me it was just a mistake and we would figure it out. He also told me not to worry, that he would just go by more. Always looking on the bright side! :) I love that man. He is so wonderful. I have to get off, I am going to send an email out tonight and try to make one more post before we start out! happy Friday!

Hey! I've been missing your posts. Looks like it's brain lapse week for the Kennedy girls. Did you see my post from the other day? About leaving the heater on in the pool? Toby did it, but I should have checked to make sure it was off. Good thing we have patient men in our lives!

I just noticed that it says I'm posting as 1zeezrom, so I thought I'd see if I can post.
It was fun to talk to you. We're going to be gone most of today. We're going to a very fancy wedding. We're invited to the sealing, the luncheon afterwards in the Hyatt-Regency Hotel, and a reception in the evening at a fancy reception center. Dad's muttering about it, but.....
Love You, Mom
