Late - plan - laugh

Friday, February 14, 2020

I slept late this morning but unfortunately so did my son. When I saw it was light outside I was afraid it was late and that if I didn't wake when son went to bathroom (right next to my bedroom), he probably didn't go yet. I was right and it was 7:18 and school starts at 7:20 and he was still asleep. So I wake him, get dressed and fix him a sandwich while he gets ready and able to get him to school about 7:35. So by the time that I get back home and make a much needed cup of coffee plus take care of Pebbles in was getting close to 9. My plan to go exercise at 9 just wasn't happening and I looked to see what classes were in afternoon but there are no classes after noon on Friday for strength so much for my plan. "Man plans and God laughs" seems so true as most proverbs are. So thought of different ideas but ended up taking as rest day and will plan on walking in pool Sunday.
So when I got home from taking son to school, I found a Valentine that my son had made for me and left on the table. He drew a Tweety Bird and wrote Happy Valentine's Day. I put it on the frig to enjoy for the week. I am really happy as I think this is the first time since maybe elementary when they did that stuff in school. I had a coupon for free item from Bed & Bath Works so I got a nice little bottle of lotion that I gave my son to give to his girlfriend today. He had made a card/drawing for her and she really seemed to love them both. I went to lunch and it was nice. We got a heart cookie and rose plus a great meal of our choosing. I got my favorite Eggplant Parmesan with salad and broccoli. It was all very good and had some nice conversation with the other ladies. I gave my cookie to my son which he really enjoyed and I let him give the rose and a small vase that I had gotten a while back from I think the dollar store to girlfriend. So we took that over to Angel and she was surprised. She got grounded so no movie date for them tonight. I think he was very happy with what he was able to give her.
My son was also very happy with his replacement phone that he got today. All in all I guess the insurance was worth it but I do hope that he can keep this one safe.
So some plans work and some not so much still the best thing to do is laugh too...

How do you get down from an elephant?
You don't get down from an elephant, you get down from a goose.

Why can't you have two elephants in your swimming pool at the same time?
Because they'd only have one pair of trunks.

Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon?
The food is terrific, but there's no atmosphere.

A man walks up to a blind man and hands him a piece of matzo. The blind man says, "Who wrote this nonsense?"

Much love to all and a Happy Valentine's Day!
