J and the girls like to make me breakfast in bed on occasion and although I have a hard time not intervening and having some control over what they do at times, I find that it’s better if they do it on their own and surprise me.
Breakfast tends to come with something on the side, along with big grins from the girls, ecstatic of their choices.
As you can see, this week’s was cereal with a side of chocolate chips.
The previous week, toast with some Lifesavers.
And before that, a stick of gum.
The problem with that is the next morning, we woke up and on my 1000 count WHITE sheets, were melted chocolate chips. We’d slept on a few strays, unknowingly.
New rule: no chocolate in bed.
The girls left last night for a ten day vacation with their dad before school starts and although I miss them already, I am glad for the time to sleep, clean out junk (again), switch up their old mattresses and box springs for new ones, and clean.
The piano bar was not so lively last night, but it was intimate and fun and nice to see local friends.
Tonight hopefully promises to be better, it being Saturday and slightly cooler from the 9o degree temps we’ve been having.
Some bad news, that has freaked out our city a bit, is a boil water order.
Something went down at the treatment plant and reservoir, so we have to boil water to drink or drink bottled water. I for one, am worried about rations, so I bought 8 gallons and three 24 pack cases of those smaller bottles you see everywhere. It’s disconcerting, seeing the entire population kind of freak out and race to the store, but what I found interesting is how little people were buying. I bought $20 worth of water for just me and J (since the girls are gone) and most folks were buying a gallon or two.
I bought it right after J went to work and when we got home late last night, he walked in and saw the huge pile of water sitting in the living room and goes, “you’re not kidding!”
Yeah. I’m not kidding.
I ain’t gonna run out of water.
I can do without canned foods and toast, but as long as we’ve got some wine and water, I’m good.
