I couldn’t sleep this morning so I decided to go blog and do some reading. I quietly get out of bed ( my husband says I’m never quiet) and slowly leave the room, only after feeling around my table for my phone. Oh crap…I need my glasses. ..I slowly and quietly go back and in the dark feel around for my glasses. ..yeah I found them and I didn’t make any noise.
I settle down in my nice, warm chair and start to blog a little when I get a message – phone needs to be charged. .. are you frigging kidding me? Ok… I take and use my phone as a flashlight, go back into my bedroom and get the cord to charge it… I plugged in the phone before I went to bed so not sure why it didn’t charge. As I get the cord I realized I plugged my phone in, I just never plugged it in to the wall. I guess I will call that a senior moment.
Ok, so now I head back to the living room, plug the phone into the charger and yes I made sure the charger is plugged into the wall… so now I can’t sit in my warm chair because the plug doesn’t reach to it. I sit in my husband’s chair. ..His cold, leather lazy boy and I shiver. .. at least it will only be for a short time, leather warms nicely.
I begin to blog and in the darkness I swear I see something. .. what the hell? I squint and as my pulse starts going crazy and I feel like I am going to have an anxiety attack… A voice…”what are you doing up at 5 am?” Squeeking… I reply “I’m blogging, I couldn’t sleep”. So I read him some of the blog and he laughs… He says he loves reading them and says I’m a good writer. ..I say he loves me and after 28 years has no choice but to say that…and…”yes dear”. Some of you out there can relate!
Anyway… I sit here and he makes me a cup of coffee and he sits in my chair and plays games on his phone.
I look up at the clock and realize it was around 5. Hmm… I forgot to change time from Eastern Time to Mountain Time, then with the fall back time…blah blah blah. So after all this what time was it really? I have no idea because my husband of 28 marvelous years is saying. ..hmm did I set the time back or forward..God I love this man!
The beauty of being up so early? We both looked out and from our deck… saw this…
We smiled and as we drank our coffee… said “beautiful”.
Thank you Lord… for my wonderful life!
