I’m sitting in my recliner, typing away, and there is the most fantastic thunderstorm going on outside. Only there is no rain. Lightning, rumbling, heavy claps of thunder, and not a drop of water anywhere. Still kind of cool, though! Plus it made the temperature drop by several degrees, which I always like! The thunder and lightning got heavy enough that I even had to get out of the hammock and come inside for the night.
So today I had to work up north at one of our satellite locations and lord almighty I was tired by 1pm. Getting up at 6 just doesn’t agree with me. Plus, I haven’t waited tables in about 3 years, and I have lost my legs! I ran my rear off, trying to make sure that I was able to help as much as possible without getting in the way. When things slowed down for a few minutes I realized exactly how much I hurt. We had a good time, though, and L and I yapped the whole way home so that I wouldn’t fall asleep we were so tired! I got home at 3, and thought I was going to pass out from exhaustion but I knew I was meeting H and the kids for dinner at that gastronomic delight, Cici’s Pizza.
We actually had a great time. We were there for almost 2 hours, and each of the kids gave me a plant for my birthday. I can’t wait to plant the lily in the front yard, but have no idea where to plant S’s zinnia that I won’t kill it. And H gave me Othello, that great game from our childhood (and one I surprisingly don’t have). The kids wanted to play, so I sat at the restaurant and played a game with each of them, to teach them the game. Like I said, we had a great time. Plus, hey, cheap date!
And if I don’t eat pizza for another six months, I think that would be just fine by me.
