Morning Thoughts

Ahhhhhh, it's amazing what a good night's sleep, sprawled out in the middle of the bed will do for a girl's disposition! I'm off and running today! For some reason, I woke up thinking of projects for the house this morning. So, after dropping Emma off at school, George and I headed off for Lowe's! We only got a couple of things, but I have a couple little projects I want to get done before Jason gets home. I'm going to save them for next week, so Emma can help me and we have extra things to do as we transition into summer.

I didn't get woken up by any phone calls last night, so I'm assuming Jason made it to Denmark and he's currently sleeping off jet lag. Hopefully he'll call later today and send pictures of our new nephew.

The first thing Emma said to me this morning was that she missed Daddy, but then she brightened up and said, "You know what we can do, Mommy? We can have a party when he gets home!" That's my party girl! Any excuse for cake and balloons! Not that I'm going to deny her those things. (I didn't deny her a trip to the store last night to get ice cream either. Shhhh. That will be our little secret, okay?)

So, thank you to my blog pals for virtual hugs and comments that made me laugh (Zephanee, I like the way you think!), I plan on keeping busy, doing the minimum amount of cooking necessary to keep us alive, and reading in bed till all hours of the night without worrying that the light is bothering anyone. Oh, and sleeping in the middle of the bed!

I do the same when my dh is out of town--we eat frozen pizzas and I fall asleep reading in bed, so if I wake up in the middle of the night my book is just waiting for me! Have fun!

I stay up late when my dh is gone too, watching tv or playing on the computer and then PRAY the kids sleep in!

Hope you have heard from your honey soon. I think you should have 2 parties: one for "Daddy's gone" and one for "Daddy's back"! with LOTS of ice cream!

Sounds like you've got enough lined up to keep you busy :o) I never sleep in the middle of the bed, even a king size, even alone. Most mornings I wake up perched perilously close to the edge!

Now is the time to rent "Steel Magnolias", "Beaches", "The Princess Bride", and every other girl flick that you can't watch when your DH is there. I've been wanting to watch those again for a while, but I know the ribbing I'll get if I bring those home from the rental place.

You know, I kind of miss those days when DH was off for a while and I could curl up in bed with a good book. But I was always glad to have him back.
