Last night, I decided to take the kiddo to B&N to get more Magic Tree House books. I also had to return my library book. So we did all that and walked through the new B&N and had a nice time. He picked out three Magic Tree House books and I got a book for my niece – a belated birthday present.
The kiddo wanted something from the cafe, so I was weak and stopped. He wanted a cappuccino (decaf) and I got a green tea iced tea. The gal behind the counter was super nice and she made the cappuccino just warm enough for him to drink. He had a HUGE smile on his face carrying that Starbucks cup around. It was darn cute. Oh, and, I also bought him chocolate. Yeah, I spoiled my kid for sure.
We got home and about 10 minutes later, the bottom fell out of the sky! The wind picked up super gusty and it poured for just over an hour. Lost satellite. The kid was freaking out. He went and got his “friends” (stuffed animals) and hid in the bathroom. hehe I told him I was proud of him for knowing where to go when we had a storm. I hope he remembers that if we ever DO have a bad tornado.
The rain was nice, though. We needed it. I shut everything down and unplugged the computers. After the storm let up some, we settled down to read our Magic Tree House #17 and then it was off to bed. He must have been exhausted because he didn’t make a peep.
I didn’t get any writing done last night since it stormed and I was away from the keyboard so much. I did get my computer back on, but answered a ton of email and sorted out bills (ew). I know, I could have used pen and paper, but I needed to see where I left off and well, that was all on my thumbdrive. I didn’t have a print out. So, I will definitely get back to it tonight. It’s still in my head, after all.
Had a super busy – but productive! – day at work. I’m guessing today will be more of the same. I love that, though. Makes the day go really fast. Plus, I’m really looking forward to the weekend!
