although mine and camden's marriage is very good, just like everything else it is not perfect and takes a bit of work. we had been fighting a bit this week, mostly about money and bills and communicating (meaning listening. .), it was driving both of us a bit crazy. we seem too often have our fights at night, when we are both extremely tired and irritable. this however, works out in camden's favor seeing as he can go to sleep mad just like that. boom, he closes his eyes and he is out. i on the other hand, will toss and turn all night letting my rage keep me from sleeping.
it doesn't take much to keep me awake. i have always had trouble sleeping and find it irritating when others seem to fall into that sweet slumber so quickly. it is hard for me to turn my mind off at night, i can't stop making to-do lists and scenarios and thinking of ideas. i'm always asking myself why i can't have this sort of brain activity when i am trying to get things done during the day. that is just how it works i guess.
that night, laying in my rage, listening to the soft snoring of camden and kramer, everything seeming so much worse than it was i thought to myself 'ok, fine! we will see about that, you don't want to talk now so you have gone to sleep. well tomorrow when you call me wanting to talk maybe i just wont answer the phone.' silly i know. well the next day came and of course, i answered the phone. i was tired of being mad and camden was too. we talked and both apologized for our dramatic behavior and moved on thinking that was that.
i got home that afternoon around the same time i always do, said hello to an excited kramer, put my hair in a pony, grabbed a cup of v8 juice and slumped down, tired from a long day with a previous night of not much sleep. a few minutes later the jolting of the front door handle startled both kramer and i seeing as we were not expecting camden home for a few hours or so. in walked camden, his motorcycle jacket in one hand and a pretty little silver box topped with a bow in the other. i started thinking great, whose party/birthday have i forgotten, and asked "hey who is the present for?" camden said matter of fact with a face like, really sara? "you of course". i opened that sweet little present to find "that" watch that i had been wanting for some time. so he had been listening all this time after all. thank you camden i love the new watch, it's perfect!
also that night, it was about time we washed kramer. we have been on so many walks lately since it has been warming up, that he was getting a bit unrecognizable. we took our walk a bit later than usual so we were a bit tired when it came to bath time. although kramer hates taking baths, he likes snuggling with camden in his towel afterwards. i took these pictures as they were both trying to stay awake very late at night.
happy weekend everyone, check back in later today for april's last giveaway!
