"Before the Parade Passes By"

"Hailey, I gotta go.  Can you take the baby?"

I heard that statement far too many times last week as my exhausted body could barely open its eyes. My "morning arms"  (when you can't grip a dang thing) would grab Myra and lay with her in my bed for a few minutes while I mustered up every once of energy I possibly could to get up and take the day on.  

It was a test week... (the worst weeks.)  
Jordan was gone bright and early, home late and then studying in his office till midnight every night and every moment I was with him, it was helping him study or hearing him talk about how stressed he was about said test. 

Med school has been fairly easy for him, up until that test.  And it made for an exhausting week.  

I did all I could to ensure my sanity and got my self out of the house a lot.  We took on Disney a few times and hung out with friends.  And finally FRIDAY came.  

Jordan finished pretty quickly that morning and had no homework the rest of the weekend so he hurried home and we ALL together went to Disney.  It was killing him to study while I was there with  Myra earlier in the week so he was ALL OVER getting some time in there.  

We watched the parade.  It was magical and Myra LOVED it... but it was SO blasted HOT!!! SO darn hot that I was in the worst mood ever.  I had been looking forward to this day ALL week and couldn't wait to have a good time with Jordan.  And of course i let me mood take over and shove MY fun out of the way.  Sometimes it is too hot to be happy.  (Unless you're Jordan, who can pretty much smile through anything.  I seriously don't know how he is so upbeat and positive all the time.  He should become a therapist too because he is on the phone with at least two different people a day talking them through their emotions and guiding them through lives troubles. How did I convince him to marry me?  ME?  He is seriously the most amazing person!)

ANYWAYS.. we then headed over to Pirates, which has THE best air conditioner in the park.  I quickly apologized for my grumpiness and we laughed about how much of a bum I was.  And the rest of the night went swimmingly well!

I am glad that I got those grumps out quickly because I am trying SO hard lately to be happier and enjoy life "Before the Parade Passes By".  All those years of musical theatre songs are teaching me lessons even still!!! :)
