So how sad it this?
I'm riding around today after a satisfying a busy week of volunteer obligations. In the last 48 hours, I hosted a teacher luncheon at the elementary school, sent an email out for a church group, and held a brownie meeting. Today, for some reason, was free.
I went to a parent's coffee at the pre-school, then free from the responsibility of caring for kids, I drove to get a new pair of Cowboy boots -- before the gift card I got for Christmas last year expires!
Around 10:30 I was driving from the boot store toward the house and all of a sudden I started craving bar-b-q. A strong craving -- I hope I'm not pregnant! So I called a friend to see if she wanted to meet me for an early lunch (10:45!), and didn't reach her. I pulled into the parking lot of Green Mesquite, and I was the only car there. There were people moving around inside, so I knew I could get in... I went in and asked if they were open. Yes, but the meat for the day isn't quite finished yet and the kitchen is just getting pulled together. They asked if I could wait 10 minutes. I said yes.
So I sat. I guess pre-11:00 is when the work gets done and as bus boys carried cups to the drink station, they would glance my way. Waitresses were reporting to work, and they glanced at me waiting for my meat-brunch. Anyway, if finally came out, and I scurried out the door. I drove as fast as I could to the house and by 11:15 I was chowing down.
Now it is almost 2 and I am sleepy, knowing that the kids are due home in 30 minutes. I need a nap.
