Mrs. Drowning, and Mr. Dying of Thirst.

I once heard something about a mom's predicament being that she often feels like she is drowning and a Father's is that he can feel like he is going to die of thirst. I loved it because it's funny and yet so true. So this weekend Adam got a tall glass of water and took the kids up to Bear Lake and stayed at his family's cabin with his brothers and their kids. (that's right, no women which in this case would be known as the cook, cleaner and "babysitter J/k) The best part is not only did they survive, they had a great time. I on the other hand got on a "float tube" with a bunch of my friends and went up to Park City to stay over night. We went to dinner, watched a movie, stayed up talking until 4, slept in until 10, went to lunch and then shopped for hours. We finally closed the day and came in to Salt Lake for CPK. It was such a short trip but enough to make me thirsty and remind me how much I love to swim (not literally of course because if you've followed my blog you would know that it scares me)

That was quite the update! Congratulations on the heartbeat. What a wonderful blessing and such a sweet post. I am jealous you got to go to Wicked! I so want to see that. Sounds like you guys are having a good summer.

I love the "drowning vs. dying of thirst" concept - I'd never heard of that before, but it can be so true. It's fun to switch places once in a while and then realize that you want to get right back into it. You can't help but miss the drowning when that's what you're used to, I guess.
