yesterday we set out for the long awaited, much anticipated, journey to a pumpkin patch. at our old house on the complete opposite side of town, i would have known exactly where to go, but being that we moved just a month ago (so crazy it's been a month!) i had no clue where to even start. we set out at the worst time of day, that time when everyone seems to get just a little on edge as they make that treacherous trek through stop and go traffic home. as habit would have it, our first stop was a complete bust. actually, we didn't even stop because as we approached the supposed pumpkin garden, it was clear no pumpkin anything had ever existed there, none the less a garden. our second stop looked a lot more promising, however, as we searched for where those glorious soon to be jack-o'lanterns should be, we came upon a sign letting us know all the jack-o'lanterns had already found homes with people that didn't procrastinate buying them in the first place. at this point i was completely over the whole pumpkin patch thing, who needed them anyway. long story short, about two hours and three grocery stores later, we finally made it back with three pumpkins in hand and one sorely defeated attitude. once home i turned to camden with that sullen face i do so well just ready to fall apart. it was then he gave me that reality check i find myself needing more than i know i should. how lucky was i that the biggest problem of my day was that my pumpkin patch tradition hadn't gone exactly as planned. i wasn't searching for shelter or starving from hunger. i was perfectly healthy with a warm house welcoming me home and a happy healthy family resting inside. this put my pumpkin problem to some serious shame. it's times like these i'm glad to have someone to pull me back down and remind me just how lucky i truly am.
