Today is Saturday, December 26, 2009. The weather has gotten cooler with sunshine. Needless to say the fireplace has been working over time.

Hubby came into town early Wednesday morning as a "surprise". Anyone that knows me, knows I don't like surprises. I had talked to him Tuesday evening and he was getting ready to eat and load the truck for Wednesday afternoon departure. I got a call from his mom upset that she wasn't able to contact him. Told her his was probably loading the truck and the phone was laying down somewhere, not to worry. She talked for over and hour and a half.

So after that I tried to call him to let him know that she would like him to call her, no answer, tried to IM him, no response, e-mailed him, no response. OK will try again in thirty minutes. He called me and said that he had fallen asleep and the phone was still on vibrate from work, the noise from the IM woke him up. No mention of leaving soon....

The next morning I roll over to see him standing over me, this is not cool. You see I got him a Laptop and it was sitting on the floor in the bedroom. I was going to set up his Outlook e-mail that morning and then to wrap. If I had set it up before he had shut down his computer up there, it would have downloaded his e-mail to the laptop. He didn't even notice it sitting there on the floor. OK on to plan B, I didn't have a plan B!

So I crawled out of bed and asked him if he had put the coffee on, I really needed a cup and fast to get my mind moving. As he walked out of the room I pushed it up under the desk. OK out of sight. We sit at the kitchen table having coffee and let me tell you I am not at all thrilled to see him early. He is tired and needs to take a nap now, wonderful. Now how am I going to get it out from under the desk with him lying in the bed? I need more coffee......

So off to bed he goes, when he wakes up he is going to take a shower. YES! Now I quickly grab the laptop and head into my room grab a tote of fabric and bury it. Later that night he goes to see son #1, perfect. By the time he gets back the laptop is setup and wrapped.

After all is said and done, I let him know that I love him and would like nothing better than no more surprises.

Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live today. ~Brightest Blessings~
