Should this make me happy?

Today my husband came home around lunch time because he is not feeling well.
He has Chrones disease and appears to be having one of his flare ups.
It is really annoying for him, he feels horrible and he can't work.
I do feel really really really sorry for him!

But guess what????

I got to go grocery shopping all by myself!!!!
This should not make me happy. I should not be happy that my husband is home on the couch sick, sad, tired, and can't eat...and yet I got to go grocery shopping by myself!!!

I know you all understand. I had to go to Wal-mart to pick out paint for the school room, and get a few other things, then I had to go to Aldi for the rest.
It was such a nice little treat. This should not make me happy.
I am a horrible wife.

I do have to say though that the kids did school while I was gone and then got themselves something to eat for lunch, so really it did not affect my husband in the least.
Except that he is sick, sad, tired, and can't eat, and his wife left him with the children to go grocery shopping by herself!!!

Missy,
Gary Rush's niece was diagnosed with Chrone's at a very young age ~ around 7, i think. Anyway, her mom was determined to treat her with natural meausures...and she was very successful with juicing. Robbi or Gary can give you the details. She has a flare-up every now and then and when she does they go back to juicing for a while and give her "system" a rest. We are praying for you Stacy ~ hope you are feeling better soon!

Love you guys!

We know that you were not happy because Stacy was sick and sad. You weren't even happy that you left him at home, alone, sick, and sad. No, that made you very, very sad.

But you were only just happy that you could get out and go grocery shopping alone. That, and that alone, made you very happy.

The problem is that it took the sad part to bring about the happy part. It was just a little confusing.

That will be $150.00, please.

You gotta take 'em when you can get 'em...but I'm sorry Stacy feels bad.

Give him a clean towel and wash cloth every time he baths!!

I really don't understand the reusing the wash cloth thing. How do you remember what part of the wash cloth washed your butt the next time you go to wash your face with it? That's just down right gross!

Stacy, I'm really sorry you don't feel well. Your friends are right about the juicing. You've don't that before and it helped. Hang in there, SIL.

Missy, you're not a bad person for going to the store by yourself. The children were left behind to tend to their Daddy. They were servant helpers. Good training.

You really are so selfish. How can you live with yourself? Just kidding. I am glad you got a little time to yourself and the children feed themselves. It is so nice when they become helpful. I hope Stacy gets to feeling better soon.

I pray Stacy feels better soon. The children sound like good little helpers.

And yes, use a new wash cloth every time! Even I do that! And yes, I will start using a clean towel every time I bathe as well. Heather is such a blabber mouth! lol.... I hope you enjoyed your little outing by yourself.

Love, Aunt Michele
