Slow morning

I don’t know if it’s the rain but I can’t get myself moving fast enough this morning.  Look at me posting at 7:40 AM when I should be hitting the showers soon.  (Okay, giving myself three minutes to post here.)

It should be a relatively quiet day.  Boss is out of state again, being busy.  It doesn’t mean I won’t be, but he’s off my back until the end of the day when we talk for a recap of what has happened on my end.

Meanwhile, I’m thinking if I will finally make that trip to Woodside to bring the package I’m sending home.  Maybe.  A friend had requested me to receive some of the things she had ordered and it’s been waiting to be sent here, just that the book I wanted to give her son is still in transit from old reliable Barnes and Noble.  So I think I’ll just send my stuff off, book or no book.

Walking up to my welcome party of one

It was raining on my way home.  It wasn’t pouring but it was a steady rain.  I stopped by the grocery to pick up some steaks for dinner and made it home by 7PM.  Angel was already running to the top of the stairs even before I could open our front door.  The boy can “smell” us coming in.. =)  He knows even without anybody saying anything.  Even my Mom has marvelled at his apparent sixth sense when it comes to us walking through the door.

Nothing beats hearing him practically squealing out “Mommy!”.. by the time I get up to the living room, he is all excited to give me a kiss.  It truly energizes me and lifts all my cares away.  Add to that the tight hug that always follows..

So we had steaks, penne with pesto, a seafood salad by my mother-in-law plus some macadamia nut chocolates that Alan brought home.  I’m not feeling too productive tonight.. might as well turn in.
