Daniel and I and our "herd" of kids went to a friends house for dinner tonight. We had a great time visiting, playing games and eating. So as we are talking our friends mention that they heard a rumor. Rumor is that Daniel and I are having problems in our marriage and that we are getting divorced. WHAT THE FLIP? First off- let me say if you have heard this rumor- NO WE ARE MOST CERTAINLY NOT!!! In all honesty, I consider my marriage one of the greatest blessings in my life. Daniel is my best friend, my eternal companion, the love of my life. Of all the things that could ever be wrong in my life,  my marriage will never be on that list. EVER. I'll let you in on a little secret: Daniel and I are and have been and forever will be blissfully happy in our marriage. We may occasionally get into disagreements but they are always very minor and we work it out.
Ok- so I want to know who in their right mind would have started that rumor and why. Daniel thinks that maybe it was a fellow ward member who gave me and 2 of my kids a ride home from church like 9 months ago, but the only reason I was walking home was cuz one of the younger boys puked and Daniel took them home to clean them up and take care of them.I told him I would find a ride with someone, but then felt silly asking for a ride so we started walking- it isnt that far of a walk anyway, but why would that start that kind of rumor? That cant be it.
Just to be clear,  I'm not offended, but am really curious and shocked that this rumor is out there. so in case any of our fellow Yumians have or will hear such a thing, its simply NOT TRUE!!! ;)

Apparently whoever started the rumor does not read your blog. Otherwise they would know how sickenly, mushy in-love you and Daniel are. Haha! Just kidding.

But really, there are so many people in our neighborhood who ARE having problems. Someone might have just gotten you guys confused with another couple who is on the brink of divorce. When I see you tomorrow, I'll tell you a fun story about Jeremy & I and this kind of talk. :)

You asked "who in their right mind would have started that rumor and why."

Whoever originated the rumor is obviously not "in their right mind."

Oh wow. That would drive me crazy. I would be going out of my mind wondering where that started. Maybe words were twisted around through several people. Makes you realize how you should be careful what you say and never talk about others.

Once Ian and I got in an argument at a Christmas party at church and I sent him home for being a stick in the mud grumpy pants. It was great for him because he got to go home and be alone for a little while and I got to have fun with the kids. When he came to pick us up everyone was happy and the night was fine. We have a great marriage too, but I can't help but wonder if the people at our table were uncomfortable or wondering what our deal was. We just look back and laugh.
