this morning at 7:34 the front door opened
& my husband
(who's school starts at 7:45)
walked through the door with this
little cup of yum...

last night at 5:15 he still wasn't home
& i was starting to get worried
t-ball practice starts at 5:30
& he takes Q & helps out...
(does that sound like the poster
for suburban living or what?)
so i called & he was just leaving school
working on a project,
he said
so we met him at the field...
later i asked him what project he was working on
& he told me something that i have forgotten by now
(i probably forgot 4 minutes later, actually)
okie doke...

back at 7:34am
& he says
that last night the project he was
working on was writing sub notes
so that he could take the morning off
& he was going to take the kids to school
& i should go take a shower
without my ear open to listen for someone to wake up
or for a fight to break out
(ever break up a fight while soaking wet
with a towel wrapped around you?
it's a joy)
then as he was leaving to take the kids
he said
so i'll take miss m & then meet you for breakfast

i wonder what will happen at breakfast...
will jennifer garner & reece witherspoon
join us for some mommy talk?
will i be shipped off to a weekend of crafting
& shoulder massages?
will the table be filled with $2.99 shoes?

or will there be a handsome man there
ready to talk & laugh & discuss
our funny, crazy, busy, confusing,
wonderful life?
yes, i think i'll take that one...
