This morning my sister called at a few minutes before 7:00 to tell me she was taking her cat to the vet (the cat will be fine – don’t worry.) Surprisingly, I wasn’t annoyed. Normally I would be but I wasn’t for some reason this morning. Why would I normally be annoyed? Well, because my alarm clock doesn’t go off until about 7:45 and I don’t like to get up any earlier than I have to, that’s why. Apparently I got enough sleep that I didn’t need anymore so when she called I stayed awake. Guess what’s on the TV at 7:00 in the morning. Golden Girls! So, I layed there for an hour and watched that instead. I know what you’re thinking, what a lovely way to start the day – you would be right! 🙂 Alas, it gets even better…
I start getting dressed as Hubby is getting out of the bed. He turns and says to me, “I’d like some hotcakes this morning.” I know – who really calls pancakes hotcakes? Well, my Hubby does and I think it’s cute. I say to him, “I’m supposed to be at work in 9 minutes”. [Aside – You may be wondering why I was running late when I got up 45 minutes early. I was watching Golden Girls, remember! Try to keep up. End aside.] Hubby responds, “You never let that stop you before.” Well, that would be mostly true and who can really resist hotcakes anyway?
So, I finish getting ready and I walk into the den and Hubby announces the hotcakes will be ready in about 1 minute. Oh – did I mention that Hubby is the only hotcake maker in our house? Yep – I’ve never ever made a single solitary hotcake in my entire life. Hubby has probably made thousands. He’s good at it too. And he usually makes the dog one as well. He calls that one a “Tater Cake”. Actually, I may have done a blog post about Hubby making a hotcake for the dog one morning and none for me. I try to forget the bad stuff so now I can’t really remember.
Anyway, I sit down and prepare myself for the golden delisciousness that is my Hubby’s hotcakes when he gets bacon out of the microwave too! Delightful! Could this morning get any better? I eat, kiss cute Hubby who is standing at the sink washing dishes (see why I ADORE this man?!?!?) goodbye and off I go to work.
Uh-Oh: Hubby just called and water is dripping out of the light fixtures and down the wall of the basement. Gggrrrrr – it was going to be such a lovely day!
