Thunder, Lightning, and no Rain

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.
