Dear Husband,

While you were working hard in sunny Phoenix, here's what we've been up to...

  • I slept corner to corner on the bed and my feet MIGHT have ended up on your pillow. MIGHT have.
  • I watched a chick flick... It's called U-Carmen; a South African version of the opera Carmen. You would have hated it ~ it was wonderful.
  • I watched it while I lied in bed, after your bed time. The volume was on pretty loud, the fan was off, and the light was on. It was wonderful.
  • Sorry, I may pay for this when you come home but I ate popcorn in bed. You hate that and yet it's oh-so-convenient.
  • This morning I dropped the stuff from our closet-clean-out and this lady was working there and her and I ended up chatting for a while. I couldn't peg her accent but it turns out that she's Japanese by decent but was raised in France. Anyways, she had breast cancer surgery on Monday and is already working today... She was elated that they didn't remove her whole breast. I SO wanted to hug her and tell that I loved her. But that would've been creepy so I just commended her on her bravery. She smelled like Grandma used to and I wonder if that's why I cared for her immediately. I told her that I would be praying for her. You would've liked her.
  • I broke the blinds in our room. Officially. I know that they were getting close but they're toast now. Oh well, it's just an excuse to give curtains another shot!
  • The kids ate dinner in front of the television and I ate mine while playing The Big Kahuna. hehehe.
  • There were these really cute t-shirts at Costco, two for $20 and I got them. They're 100% cotton and CA-UTE. And remember how I whined about needing some long sleeves?
  • Little O found some condoms in our room and waved them in Miss B's face while bragging, "I found some tickets!"
  • I talked to Anne from IBSEN and she asked if you wanted to come to the auction too! Who should I ask to babysit? For the dinner you can pick between salmon, chicken, or vegetarian.
  • It's hailing right now with some thunder and lightening. Mr. P said that it sounds like God is playing the drums.
  • Little O wishes that you were home to serve him some juice. I do too so that he would stop bugging me about it. He keeps saying that water makes him thirstier.
  • The girls were supposed to be cleaning their room and Miss Z tried getting out of it by telling me how much that she misses you. You totally would've fallen for her huggy-manipulation-techniques.
  • Kahuna was a little lost without you last night. Even though he loves me more, you are much warmer in-between the legs ;)
  • The girls' teacher came up to the van when I was picking them up and thanked me for signing their readers every night. I asked her if she was kidding (I admit that I was expecting bad news since she came over to the van) and she said that I would be surprised at how many parents don't enable their kids to do their homework. Then, the vice principal told me to keep the line moving and the girls' teacher rolled her eyes at him and HE LAUGHED. The unmovable vice principal laughed. I'm liking both of them more and more.
  • Miss F asked me if my heart really says "I love Husband" every time that it beats. What are you telling our kids when I'm out of earshot? I think that it might...
  • Oh and both Batman AND Superman stopped by for lunch today...

Oooh, you ate popcorn in bed, you are going to get it. My hubby eats popcorn in bed and I hate it, yes I said hate. :) My bloglines showed another post by you re: cars and I wanted to share that I am not snobbish just because I drive a Honday Odyssey. Well, sometimes, I am not...LOL!

I was afraid that you people, whom I adore, (I'm totally crackin' up) might drive one of these vehicles...

(and did you happen to notice that I said that I wanted one??
