I liked this one found on Facebook.
I bet they had a big screen TV for the Superbowl!
It was a nice weekend all the way around.
The weather was beautiful for this time of year.
I found little flowers on my vinca.
It looked like spring and felt like spring.
I knew the man was hoping to get Sunday off.
He gets off of his Saturday shift at 7:30 AM Saturday morning.
That meant he would be in the house all weekend...
until 11:15 PM Sunday night.
I decided to plan a surprise for him.
I'd gone grocery shopping for the week the day before
and found halibut steaks at a decent price.
So I made his favorite meal:
halibut parmesan, pilaf and flash frozen corn.
I made nanner puddin with Nilla Wafers.
He came home, walked in the door and began sniffing.
He was very pleased.
As I was dishing it up,
he told me that I had to stay in the kitchen until
he said it was okay to come out with the plates.
He had a surprise for me too.
My surprise turned out to be a movie I wanted to see.
I like to call it "Ronan the Conan".
Its a SG-1 thing.
So we sat in the family room and ate our meal
while we watched my movie.
But the poor man fell asleep halfway through it.
At least it saved him from having to watch me drool over Ronan/Conan.
The graveyard shift still feels weird.
Kind of like living alone and having the man visit.
I spend a lot of time talking to Roxy
and as long as she doesn't begin to talk back...
I'm good and the town is safe.
(Remember Son of Sam?)
He's been working so much lately.
I woke him up and sent him off to bed.
He got up later and spent some time with me
before it was my turn to crash...
and his to talk to the dog.
But its harder on the man, I think.
All these long hours day after day.
But it does sound like the overtime is going to slow down.
He didn't have to ask for Sunday off...
everyone else did and the boss gave it to them.
I taped the Superbowl so that the man and I can watch it
when he returns from work tomorrow morning.
I didn't want to peek,
but I was compelled.
I was rooting for the Patriots.
That was kind of a tough choice for me.
I really like Eli.
But the Pats have our Patrick Chung!
(A much liked former Duck.)
Sorry Eli... Ducks win out for me every time.
I just wish the Pats had won.
So close and so far.
What did you do this weekend?
Were you glued to the game...
or avoided it?
Happy new week to you all!
