My husband and younger son are in California so this is a post about all of the things I have learned while they are gone. First, a warning to any internet lurkers who may be looking: my older son is here still. He is a grown man who knows Taekwondo.
When my husband is gone, I get to sleep in the middle of the bed. If he goes away on a plane, I get all of his pillows. This almost balances the fact that I don’t really sleep that well unless someone is snoring loudly next to me.
If I have a bad dream in the middle of the night, and I go downstairs and tell my adult son it makes I seem a little crazy. Luckily, he already knows this about me.
I get to eat anything I want for dinner. The same thing every night if I want. If I make the same thing, I become a surprisingly good cook. Especially if I get a five dollar frozen dinner.
The house makes quite a few random noises. My curtains make surprisingly creepy human shapes. I have a remarkably vivid imagination.
I also now know who leaves all the cups all around and who leaves pens, socks and pencils on the floor (actually that last one was more of a confirmation than an epiphany).
I have a lot of free time especially if a storm knocks out my satellite TV. So here’s what’s up:
My husband took the camera to take pictures of his trip. So I have no pictures, but I have three main things going on. I am bringing this blog down to my computer to work on as a book. Second, my friend, Veronica, came over and helped me to gain control over the next block in our tropical friendship quilt. I wish I had a picture of that work in process because it is so pretty. Lastly, I am working on my strip quilt. I finished the black squares and I am moving on to green. I had enough of black and also I need to put green thread on my sewing machine.
This has certainly been a disjointed post, and to continue that theme I will add:
I miss you both, Steve and Paul. Have a great Father’s Day! (Hopefully, you will remember that I post on Sunday. Otherwise, I hope you had a great trip.)
I also want to send salutations to my own father: Have a great day! I’m glad you are taking better care of yourself so we can all have you around for a long time. Your willpower this year has been fabulous. I love you and I’m glad you are my dad.
