Decided to take a break from my Daily December album pages and make a different kind of LOAD entry for today.
I had wanted to use this photo of the lighthouse I took last year while we were vacationing in KK. I have also been wanting to use a photo of my hubby in the yacht, simply because I love the look on his face: absolute contentment, totally relaxed, free! Precious. Wish the bay was closer to the city if only for this reason.
Got to get both of my “wants” onto a single layout with this. That makes me happy. 😀 Also, I realize that the number of LOs I make featuring my hubby pale in comparison to the amount of LOs that my kids star in… but aside from the fact that he’s one and they’re five (and that fact automatically ups the scale in their favor–imagine the proportion: 1 is to 5), I also have a hard time journaling on LOs for him because that part of me is very private, treasured, even sacred if I may say so… but for this one, funnily enough, the journaling spilled out all in one go, like it was just waiting for me to put it down in the letters of the alphabet. Guess it was really meant to be made, huh?
you are my harbor,
my lifeboat, my anchor,
my shelter in any storm.
you are my north star,
the wind in my sails,
my lighthouse, my safe shore.
you are my ocean of adventure,
my blue skies, my gentle waves.
you are my horizon
where heaven and earth meet
in a long, tight embrace.
you are my one, my only,
my forever, my always.

Somefin funny happened…
My 5-year-old J and I had just come home from school and I commented how I had a terrible headache. (Not sure if it was caused by the extra-bright glare of the sun or the sunglasses I wore to shield my eyes… all I know is that it certainly had something to do with my “new” eyes).
My son said to me, “Mom, you should go to the doctor maybe.”
I said, “Yeah. Maybe.”
He said, “Don’t worry, I’ll go with you.”
Then: “Maybe I’ll just stay home and wait for you. I don’t like the prickin’ they do at the doctor.”
Over dinner last Saturday, hubby and I were talking about having lunch the next day at the new restaurant we opened. My 2nd son, who loves all things food and who can whip up real yummy stuff in the kitchen from nothing, opened his eyes wide in excitement. He asked, “Oh! Are we all having lunch there tomorrow?”
Naughty parents that we are, we decided to tease him.
Hubby said, “No, not we. Just your mom and me.”
I said, “That’s right. We’re having a daaaaaate!”
My son grew quiet, then said to everyone at table, “Just one little second, may I be excused?” and left before any of us could answer. We could hear him moving around in his room, and then he came back with some money, which he gave to me.
I said, “What’s this?”
He said, “Uh, that’s the change for the pizza I ordered for my friends when they came over yesterday. That way you can give me the amount that I paid and you already have the change.” (I had asked him to pay for it first, and told him I would pay him back).
I said, “Oh. Okay. But you didn’t have to give it me right now. What do you need the money for right now?” and gave him that questioning look that parents give their kids when they know something more lies behind the surface.
He looked sheepishly at us, and said: “Table for one?”
What he meant was that he would go to the restaurant and pay for his own dinner, since we weren’t taking him. 😆 That guy cracks me up. Of course hubby and I broke out in loud laughter and told him we were just teasing him. Just as he was teasing us with his “table for one” line. That was really funny to me.
Yeah. We are certified crazies in our home.
Alrighty then! More work to do! Catch you later!
PS. Sssh. I’m trying not to remind you that you should be getting freebs soon, but that’s exactly what I’m about to work on! 😉
