Well. Things happened yesterday.
On a day when my to-do-list included: five loads of The Boy’s laundry in preparation for his move back to school, trips to Costco and the grocery store for many items that needed refrigerating, and paying bills online…guess what? The power was out for three hours.
It came back on literally 15 seconds after we’d gone to all the trouble to put our vital refrigerated items on ice.
So that happened.
The Boy and his girlfriend spent the entire day packing, labeling, and loading his stuff. My van and his Jeep were completely ready to go before dinner.
After dinner The Boy gave his sister and me an inservice on checking the fluids and tire pressure in our vehicles. I was forced to learn all that stuff many years ago before I was allowed to drive my first car, but that was…many years ago. With the husband traveling and son away at school I have to deal with these things again. Bleh.
And The Husband called from his overnight-in-a-truck-sleeper-cab location and we had our first good, long, phone visit in over a week. Boy, would I hate, hate, hate, the over the road life. But he’s having a ball, and it was great to hear all about it.
So yeah, that stuff happened, too.
This morning I was wide awake at 4:00 am. I’ll get up in a few minutes to shower and make a nice breakfast for the three of us – my last hurrah of mom-cooking.
We’ll hit the highway about 7:00 for what promises to be a hot, sticky, physically/emotionally exhausting day.
Here we go…
