So much joy, so little time!
Today I will go in chronological order:
What to you may be just an innocent bottle of concentrated orange drink is, in fact, one of my least favorite beverages. Sure, it has undertones of the McDonald’s orange drink I remember from my youth, but unfortunately they do not serve it with chicken nuggets and french fries that I would prefer. I will know in a few days if I passed or failed the dreaded gestational diabetes test. But, I count it as a joy because we made it to 24 1/2 weeks with the twins and I get to take the test.
I am not the world’s best story teller. I think ALL of the facts are important and sometimes I forget the order in which things occur. So I often find myself backtracking mid-story to share what I think might be an important part of the story so that the punchline makes sense. Frank is often victim of my long, winding, nonsensical stories. He tries really hard to stay with me when I’m telling the story, but then, after about 5 minutes of meandering, he finally can’t take it any more. He nods, gestures and generally tries to cue me to wrap it up. Unfortunately, that only derails the story further as I cannot multi-task while story telling. The result is that I eventually slow down the story and forget where I am at while I’m trying to read his physical cues. The result? A great many Emily stories that end with, “So, uh, yeah, I just thought you’d want to know or something.”
joys #60 & 61:
Mr. Al and Ms. Rosie went with us to church tonight. It was a wonderful service and it was great to go with friends. It’s awesome to see how much they love each other and I really enjoy seeing their marriage in action. They are truly a sweet couple!
