So…a common question is: What does your husband think about you going to Africa?
Well, my dear, sweet Boo is a man of few words. Sometimes I need to collect a thought in my mind that could be swimming around in his mind and ask him..”So, (thought)___________” and he’ll agree, look at me like I’m crazy or…a plethora of outcomes could happen! I did this one day a little while ago – I already asked him if I could go to Africa back in April – “yeah, sure, whatever.” Then, I asked him again – TWICE – before I bought my ticket – “Now, you’re SURE you’re ok with this.” His reply “YES, I already said yes. GO!” So…I was formulating one day..”Did you say yes to me going to Africa because you didn’t really think I would do it?” Well, I even surprised myself, so it’s no wonder he didn’t think this trip would happen.
Poor boy, he stopped asking me questions after I kept saying “I don’t know” to everything he’d ask:
- Where will you stay?
- What will you be doing?
- What will you eat?
- Who will pick you up?
- How much will this cost?
Well…in the beginning, I didn’t have those answers. I’ve since inquired of him why he hadn’t asked me anything further – we’ve started talking a bit more about it. He’s a doll for agreeing to ship his wife off to a far away land – though, he’s rather excited about having a month to himself – I’m sure, after those 6 long weeks, I’ll have missed him more than I can fathom at this particular moment.
The nerves are starting to set in a little bit – after all, in 2 weeks I should have
- and this completed!
Figuring out what all of those are…well 😉 I know one is schedule a meeting with the bishop to get a current temple recommend – why I put this off so long, I haven’t a clue – I hope the Stake President has a day coming up! The second is, get another copy of that darned yellow card!
Other than that – a few items from the store, pack..and I’m gone.
You nervous with me, dear reader?
