*blows cobwebs off microphone* This thing still worK?
Lordy, but I’ve been busy. Head down, typing away, formatting, writing, and not on my book, either. I forgot where I even left that thing! No, work is intense, and I have no time at all for anything other than that and family, at least until the next deadline passed, on the seventeenth. St. Paddy’s Day, when the Chicago River turns green and people drink green beer and wake up hung over with green mustaches. Man, I miss living there sometimes.
Have to get back to work but wanted to apologize for all the dry toast. Y’all keep coming back to check but I am just not serving it up this week!
However, I do want to wish my sweetie a happy anniversary. One year ago today we were introduced on eHarmony.com and took a chance. I know why I took the leap, but still don’t know why Phil did; I mean honestly, I was holding children and wearing a big ole wedding ring in my photo. How many guys would still try to get to know me after that and after listening to my laugh? For Pete’s sake. Also? It turned out that we worked in the same town, had lunch at the same places, and lived only ten miles apart. And we still needed help finding each other! *bumps into wall*
Thank you, baby, for being here and for still making me
dinner laugh so hard. It’s been so much fun. And just last night? Daphne was tasting the soup I made in an effort to reproduce the soup Phil made for us last week.
“I like it, Mama.”
“I do , too. Phil made it for me last week.”
“Yes, he loves me.”
“And he loves us, too.”
“He sure does.”
“And we love him.”
“I know you do.”
“Except when he gets mad.”
“Well, honey, you were slamming your brother’s head on the wall.”
