You WISH you had a husband like mine...

I almost cried today right in the middle of Costco. Actually, let's be honest here, tears literally filled my eyes. But I didn't let them fall. Much.

I've been pretty depressed lately. I'm not sure why, but it's been rough... but that's not the point of the story. I convinced Brit to go on a Costco run, not because we actually needed anything, just because I tend to enjoy browsing through Costco (and eating samples). We passed through the electronics first, and Brit convinced me to get another external hard drive. La la la, browsing through the rest of the store, until right at the end we pass by the little floral stand. "Aw, I want some flowers," I mention in passing. But the cheap ($9) bouquets were all... less than desirable. And the really good ones were $20, and that's more than I thought we could spend, especially considering I had updated Quicken just that morning and was still depressed over the results. After a few moments, Brit took his fancy 2 TB hard drive out of the cart, picked my favorite bouquet, and said "There- now we're saving money!"

And that's when I teared up. I love my husband.

So good Jen! That Brit is quite the guy! And I LOVE going to Costco. Sometimes when I'm stressed out I will go there and just look at everything and I always feel better :)

Don't be too rough on yourself about feeling down. Technically, you can experience the baby blues any time during the year after giving birth.

Of course, the winter doldrums are quite common as well.

Either way, someone seems to think you're pretty special, enough to give up a computer accessory for a bouquet of flowers.
