This morning I slept sinfully late. Even though I knew I had quite a bit to do today, I decided that I would get up whenever I woke up and not worry with the alarm. It was wonderful. Marcel worked all night, so didn't come to bed until a little after six this morning, and it was great to fall asleep for several more hours with him there beside me.
Before I went to sleep, I turned on the electric blanket for him, so that his side of the bed would be toasty when he crawled in it this morning. It's one of those little things that I like to do for him, that make his day a little easier. Since I only grunted and turned over in the bed when he crawled in this morning, he thanked me for it later when he got up.
It has been one of those run, run, run kind of days. I worked out this morning, then jumped in the bath, got ready, ran to the store (not literally) to pick up a plant for his mom. She'd specifically requested a plant for her birthday, so we found one to go along with her birthday gift.
We spent the afternoon and early evening there- and came home in time for Marcel to catch two hours of snooze time before he has to get up (15 minutes from now) and head out the door for his last night shift. Since he only works two of each shift, it makes it much easier for him.
Desere is also home alone this evening, so she's invited me to come over and spend a few hours with her. So, when Marcel goes to work, he'll drop me off there, and Hein will bring me home later.
I do have so much I want to talk about, but it does seem that every time I sit here and begin to write, it's when my time is limited- just like now- I need to get the coffee brewing and Marcel's lunch made, plus change out of the clothes I have on and put on something more comfy to wear to Desere's.
Tomorrow morning Bobbi is coming over for a visit and staying for lunch, but tomorrow afternoon, I hope to find some time to write.
I watched the movie Fireproof a week or so ago, and I'd really like to talk about it. Have any of you seen it? If not, and you can get your hands on a copy (it's out on DVD now), I highly suggest you watch it.
More on that later...
In the meantime, before I head off-
