Oh dear god and good morning. It's almost noon. The man and I stayed up too late last night and slept until 9:30. This is unheard of, especially for Mr. Moon.
We must have been worn out.
He's already on his way into town to help Jessie and Vergil put up cabinets in the kitchen. I, being the lazy slut of a woman I am, am not driving into town to help Jessie and Vergil put up cabinets.
Nor do I want to get out in the garden and pull weeds although I should but please- no.
All right. Plans are forming AS WE SPEAK! Lily wants to know if I want to go do a little Father's Day shopping and I guess I will.
Mr. Moon, of course, says he has everything he needs, especially if we drive to Tulsa, Oklahoma to buy a car he wants. Not tomorrow. But sometime.
I'm like...Tulsa, Oklahoma? He says it's a twelve hour drive.
I told him that's like at least three days. Four if I had my way.
Sometimes I really wonder why in the world we are so happily married. We're as much alike as chalk and cheese. Maybe that's why. I used to have a friend who took up biking. She loved it. She rode her bike everywhere and went on those day's-long bike tours. She was happy. Then her husband decided that he, too, would take up biking so that they could share this thing she loved so much. Suddenly, the whole thing became about HIM. His bike, his training, his flat tires.
She was not so happy. But what could she do? She didn't OWN biking.
I'm not sure how that turned out.
Anyway, la-di-dah and we meet in the middle, I suppose, this man and I. He brings me bales of hay and I clean out the hen house. He tills the garden and I weed it. I cook the food and he eats it. He supports me and I like it.
But I tell you this- sometimes we joke that Match.com would never in a billion years have tried to match the two of us. Good thing we got together the old fashioned way- in a bar.
Happy Saturday, y'all.
Trust your heart, not algorithms. I don't even know what algorithms are. Which, in reality is not a good reason not to trust them but I do know what hearts are and I do trust those.
