Yesterday morning when the alarm went off I was more than ready to jump out of bed. I started “A Husband’s Secret” by Liane Moriarty on Sunday and I was dying to read the last few pages. I fed Santo, grabbed my cup of coffee, and headed out onto the porch to finish it up.
It’s a quick read, instantly engages you, and never gets overly corny with the intrigue. I would also highly suggest her other novels, and if you haven’t watched “Big Little Lies” on HBO you’re missing out!!!
Around noon David and I headed to the gym. I’ve been doing Pilates every day for a few weeks now and I decided to try out the elliptical. My body did NOT like that right now…good to know! Once we left the gym I had to go get my fingerprints done for my OSBN CNA exam, and then we grabbed some groceries and headed home!
David looooves my insatiable quest for selfies. Later in the afternoon I grabbed my car keys and drove to the boys’ camp to pick them up for the day. When Kai saw me he ran over, gave me a huge hug, and then handed me a dandelion. He held it out and said, “I’m always so happy to see you.” and hugged me again. My heart swelled.
He then proceeded to be extremely difficult for the rest of the car ride but, you know, kids. Steven, Kai, and I spent the afternoon playing superheroes. I was the tech support and whenever they needed their super- gear upgraded they’d run over to me and I’d download new software for them using my super-advanced-hydrogen particle- computer (an old calculator). 6pm came around way too fast and it was time to go.
I plopped down on the couch with some ice and my old man while David studied and cooked dinner. I started watching “The Sinner” on USA with Jessica Biel, about a housewife who goes nuts on the beach and stabs someone but nobody knows why.
Santo was not impressed.
For dinner David cooked salmon filets and a southwest-style salad. It was delicious! I’d been struggling not to feel down all day, and David could tell. We had a long talk and I shed some much-needed tears. Then he went into the bathroom and called me in a few minutes later.
He’d run me a eucalyptus bubble bath, lit my favorite candle, and grabbed my new book! I read for a while and then jumped in bed around 8pm to keep reading. It was exactly what I needed last night.
Then, all of the excitement happened! We heard a “pop” and the power went out! We thought we’d blown a fuse, but we were confused because we barely had anything running. David reset the breaker and then a few minutes later all the power went out again! My mom texted me to see if we were in the dark too, and online it said that almost 3,000 people had lost power. I wonder what happened! Luckily, David is always prepared and he grabbed himself a headlamp and me a battery-powered reading light and the evening proceeded as usual. I slept for almost 10 hours and I feel pretty good this morning! 🙂
Today includes an appointment, David’s law exam (wish him luck!!!!!!!) nannying my little superheroes, and dinner with my parents! Yay!
