It has been a rather shockingly low-energy day for me. I finally got it together to get off the couch and went and took a nap.
That kind of day.
But I feel some better now and have spaghetti sauce simmering on the stove. Owen likes spaghetti but WITH NO MEATBALLS! He's never had meatballs so we're a bit mystified about that one. He does like meat in the sauce though, so I thawed out some Tennessee grass fed ground beef from the freezer in the garage and used that. I hope he likes it.
Gibson, of course, likes everything.
I am a little nervous, and I know that's silly, to be having both boys overnight. We have no patterns and rituals established here for a sleepover. I'm sure it'll be fine. I'm an over-worrier and that's all there is to that.
Mr. Moon's had a fabulous day. The bow kit (don't ask me) that he needs for gator hunting (don't ask me) has finally arrived just in time for next week's night-time river prowls in search for the elusive monster gator. He managed to sell two trade-ins and not lose money on them. And the railroad company has promised to have someone here on Tuesday to deal with this giant oak tree which fell on our property some weeks ago. Remember that? It's just been laying there dying ever since. We expected no help from them at all, to be truthful, but explored the option before we hired someone to do the job so this is good news. And tomorrow he's heading up to the Georgia hunting camp so he's out in the garage getting things ready for that. Don't ask me.
The boys will be here soon and things will get jiggy real quick. And after they leave tomorrow, I will have at least 24 hours of solitude. I might even go to a movie.
Or I might not.
We shall see. I swear to you- I can't even start to predict a damn thing around here and I've quit trying.
I'll let you know how it goes.
And I sent the letter. If I did nothing else today (and that's pretty much the deal), I sent the damn letter.
Thank you, all of you, for having our back on this one. I could feel your universal aghastness and somehow, that helped a whole lot.
I love you.
