My 22 year-old son called to wish me well, and my wife let me sleep in (I got myself up at 9:50 AM after having pushed the limit till 2 AM this morning), made me coffee and a great cheese and veggie omlette, and she did ALL the dishes (normally, that’s my job).
Then she went for a bike ride to leave me stress-free for the day. I have two Eddie Bauer t-shirts and a golf shirt coming by mail, and we got each other really nice patio furniture for our 28th (!) anniversary Friday.
This afternoon I worked on my business web site, got some beer and peanuts, and now I’m going to read of few pages of my latest thriller. 🙂
This evening we’ll celebrate our anniversary, Father’s Day, and my Mom’s birthday (she’ll be 83 Tuesday and still goes to the real estate office and sells homes!).
I love my family. Life is good. Today’s for smelling the roses.
PS: Back home now… at my Mom’s house, my sis (who is another teacher) served champagne before dinner, then steak, broccoli, carrots, baked potato, French and garlic bread, a great red wine that had no sulfite, and a salad that included my favorite healthy greens, avocados, and fresh local tomatoes, with choice of dressings. My wife hand-cranked vanilla bean soft ice cream and we had it with her home-baked bundt cake and local strawberries for desert, with Kona coffee. Cards and presents all around. I’m not lying.
Like I said, I’m spoiled.
