Exhaustion

Poor Ross didn't get much sleep on our trip, and then he had to drive home, and then he chose to help me unpack everything instead of taking a nap. He pretty much rocks! I kept asking him if he needed me to take Emma out for a walk or a drive so he could get some sleep- but he insisted that he was fine and not even that tired. Well, when he was saying our family prayer, he closed with, "please bless that all the members who couldn't be here tonight will be able to come next time, and bless that we can all travel home safely. . ." At least he didn't bless the food! Now I could be wrong in assuming that this subconscious pull from memorized benedictions came from exhaustion. Maybe he was being metaphorical. Perhaps he was referring to the other members in a way that meant he wants us all to be unified. "If ye are not one, ye are not mine." He could have meant our trip home to heaven and was praying that our trip would be absent of detours. However, knowing Ross's metaphorical abilities- I am going to doubt that. :)

That's hilarious Amanda! When I worked in customer service, one time I ended a phone call with a customer by saying, "In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

at least he ended the prayer, half of the time Brian falls alseep and when I elbow him awake he starts over, or he will startle awake well after we are done with the prayer and say "amen".

I don't work anymore, love! Well, that's not true- but I would happily interrupt my cleaning and diapering work for you any time!
