Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing—Benjamin Franklin

"If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic." - Lewis Carroll

I had an epiphany the other day; and this time it wasn't one of those I've-lost-my-mind-isn't-it-laughable ones, it was a real, legitimate epiphany for me. It started because I had a moment of divine intervention about something that has been on my mind a lot lately and in reporting it to Bryce later realized that the reason I pegged it as revelation was because it was a logical/reasonable thought process. It made perfect sense in my head, so it must be revelation from heaven. Now, this may simply mean that I have crossed the line from quirky to completely insane, but I'd like to think that it just means I have some mental work to do. 
Bryce is always the logical one, this is no mystery to anyone, but because of this I've let what small amount of logic I have slip out the window. With every time I've spent three hours trying to figure something out in the only way I can think to do it and Bryce has come home and showed me a much faster/easier way to do the same thing in 5 seconds or less, I find myself doing those things less and less. I don't tax my brain anymore or even bother to try to figure it out because I know if I wait for Bryce to come home, he will do it better. There are 2 major problems I see with this, a: Sometimes Bryce isn't around much/doesn't have the time and b: I am quickly losing the ability to use the logical part of my brain. Not to mention the fact that it is placing a large handicap on my confidence level. It sounds silly, but I am absolutely serious and slightly dreading the fact that I am going to have to put my logical mind to use despite how much it grunts and groans about it after so long of sitting generally dormant.

In other more exciting news, we've almost survived finals. There have been quite a few sleep-related incidents, and being woken up in the middle of the night to Bryce spouting law reviews or Latin terminologies explaining that he's just finishing the conversation we were having (a conversation that never existed as it is 3 AM and I was sound asleep), but other than that we are unscathed. We also found out the other day that we are going to spend part of the summer in Utah. And though packing our stuff and getting us all ready to leave in 2 weeks is not my idea of fun, it will be a good experience. 
Little britches is still running around and I swear he gets faster everyday. I took him to a petting farm the other day and that was one of the funniest things that has ever happened. (Pictures to follow as soon as I get the real computer back from Bryce)

Oh, Haley girl, if not for the fact that it was so well-written, it could have been ME writing that first paragraph! I know EXACTLY what you mean!!! Being married to such a sensible guy, wonderful blessing that it is, has truly handicapped me! I,too, have suffered the frustration of endless hours of pondering and writhing over a dilemma just to have him come home and pop out with the perfect solution. I recognize it as a superb blessing....AND as a handicapping curse. I wouldn't trade it, though, since as long as one of us is privy to rational thought and exquisite decision making skills, it benefits our entire family unit. I just wish it were me. Every once in a while. :) :) :) Wish I were there to chase the little man while you pack! SO glad you get to spend some time in Utah this summer!!! And we're praying hard for those finals to be a stunning success. LOVE YOU!
