yesterday ... mid-day ...
i talked to the husband ... (remember ... winter break is OVER. i'm back at work. sucky.)
who happened to be at home ...
ahhh ... the life of a pilot.
apparently he ... the one who slept through children puking on two separate over-night affairs ... is the one who got the sicky germs (that'll learn ya.)
but anyways ... this post is already off in random thought land ... sorry about that.
so i call him.
and say ... oops. silly me. i completely forgot that in september i agreed to attend tonight's ptsa meeting. so i'm gonna grab dinner with two friends and then go to that and i'll be home around 7.
he didn't sound pleased.
and in my head ... i was thinking ... what? i should be allowed to run out for a good dinner with friends and you can take care of the children for a few hours. i'll get home sometime, for goodness sakes (note ... this was BEFORE we knew he was ill ... i'm not that awful.)
when i found out (a few hours later) that he wasn't feeling well ... i asked him if he needed me to change my plans. he said they would be fine. so i proceeded with my plans and got home about 7:30.
and find my husband (looking slightly more green in the face) and my girly-girls ... singing happy (early) birthday with a lit candle aboard a mini cheesecake (with fruit on top ... ).
and a wii.
and a wii fit.
my husband (although i won't kiss him ... for at least 5 days) is the best man ever.
and not just because he got me something that i've really been wanting ... but, because he got it knowing that it would make me happy. and he is always wanting me to be happy.
and i am.
because i have a terrific husband and two amazingly wonderful little girls.
(and also a little sore ... because i hula hooped until 11:30 last night ... he was sick and in bed and the girly-girls were sleeping ... it was quiet ... and damn! that is too much fun!)
also ... note ... my wii fit might verge into my blogging time. i'm sure gonna miss you guys.
kidding. but tomorrow ... on my real birthday? look for a guest post. 'cause i'm probably gonna be on the wii.
