A shout out to my fellow night owls!
I paused for a moment, last night, before pouring coffee from the “highly caffeinated” thermos at Rutters. Only a pause though! Dee and I were starting a 2-hour trip home from some friends’ house, at 9:00pm. I know this just sounds like an excuse from a coffee junkie, but ,we needed to stay awake, right? Our kids’ lives were at stake. Back country roads, in the dark, with my man, Selah on my iPod, kids sleeping in the backseat, that “highly caffeinated” coffee warming my hands, and 2 hours of talking. It was wonderful!
We tucked the kids right in bed when we got home, since they were already prepped. I learned the jammies/teeth brushed trick from my friend Michele. So smart!
We unloaded the car. I did, mostly, since Dee’s incision was hurting. My car always, without fail, takes twice as long to unload than to load! The junk unpacks and multiplies itself in the car. Creepy, really.
I stoked the fire.
I Googled “who won the Superbowl?” and found out that the Giants won. Don’t hate me! Just invite me to a Superbowl party next year!
At 12:15am I started cleaning my kitchen. I never have time to clean up before church, and I was gone all day, so all my Saturday messes (including pie baking) were still lurking in my kitchen.
Dee watched some “Jurassic Park” and then went to bed. He felt bad letting me work all by myself, but I gave him plenty of kisses and danced around the kitchen to show him that I was WIDE awake! I sang along to Pandora, hung up jackets, and returned food items to their proper places. I still wasn’t tired, so I thought I’d sit and read my Bible. Try to get sleepy. I know, that sounds bad, right?
I wrapped up the
night morning by cleaning my bathroom at 2:00am. Toilet, shower, and floor. When I finally crawled in bed, Dee murmured, “Do I smell the orangey aroma of cleaning products?” I think he found it romantic, actually, and was a little in awe of my crazy, super-mom powers.
Tonight though? I going to brew some coffee, prop up my feet, and veg with Dee for two hours in front of “The Voice!”
