Just finished writing up my to do list.  I’ve got so many things to do I figured I should start trying to plan my attack early.

Josh is still snoozing.  I’m listening to him snore quietly and every now and then Evie gets in on the action.  It’s pretty peaceful actually.

He did get some laundry done for me yesterday and we got the line drawing of the rose scanned.  I’m still not entirely sure I can help him do what he’s wanting with it, but I’ll try.  He also made killer chili for dinner last night.  That boy might not know how to cook much, but he makes the best chili I’ve ever had.  If I thought I could get him to nail down the recipe I’d share it, but it’s never the same twice.

I didn’t really get much done last night.  I had one of those times where I had all of these great ideas but none of them sounded worthwhile.  I actually got everything out of my project bag and looked at it and promptly rejected everything.  Hopefully today that’s not the case.

Josh and I actually spent several hours just sitting in the garage smoking and talking last night.  I know, real exciting.  It was actually a really nice time.  We talked about all kinds of things and, since there were no electronic distractions, it was real conversation.  Awesome in a way I don’t think I can adequately describe.

A lot of what we talked about was his daughter.  I told him again that I’m positive I made the right decision not to have kids of my own.  On the weekends we get her I’m usually all excited Saturday morning to see her and start doing things, but by 4pm on Sunday I’m ready to kick her ass out the door.  I just know in my heart that I could NOT do the kid thing on a daily basis.  He admitted that he couldn’t either.  He also told me, several times, what a great job he thinks I do with her.  That was really nice to hear.  And he told me countless times how happy he is being with me and how glad he is that I continued to pursue him when we were dating.  He was just as much of a challenge back then as he is now sometimes.  I’ve always told him that when I look into his eyes I see all of this potential just waiting to be tapped.  It’s totally true.

Anyway, the weekend is off to a pretty decent start.  I’m just waiting until 9 to try to wake him.  I’ve been enjoying some home made mocha and getting my list together.  I’m also trying to figure out how best to start the Photoshop lessons.  If we manage to get something interesting done I’ll try to share it with y’all.

The mood right now is holding pretty steady.  I actually slept pretty well last night and feel pretty good right now.  I know that being productive this weekend will only serve to boost that.  I’d say I feel normal right now, and normal is not a bad thing on a Saturday morning.  As long as my motivation comes back, there’s no reason this shouldn’t be a truly awesome weekend.  Here’s hoping.
