Sushi, Lemon Cake & Hugs

January 5

Well, good morning. I am surprisingly chipper, despite having a bit of a rough night last night. We took the kids out for dinner last night to a sushi/Chinese place. Hubby and I had sushi, J had basil chicken, M has avocado sushi and E had orange chicken. E’s dish cost more than any of the others!

It is a bummer now that she needs to order full adult meals. Ouch. Dinner cost us about $75 with the tip. Then we went and got a Redbox movie – How To Train Your Dragon 2 – and got lactose free chocolate ice cream, grain free chocolate chip meringue cookies, madeleine cookies and lemon cake.

Yep, we know how to show a hundred dollar bill a good time.

Ohhh, my. I brought two pieces of my sushi home, because I was full. Still managed to eat cookies and cake though. When I ate the lemon cake, my nose started to run and I was sneezing and blowing my nose all night. I had to take two doses of Tums as well. Gosh, the things we do to ourselves.

Then I dreamed about an old boyfriend I had in my early days and what an ass he was over the years. Did not make for restful sleep.

When I got up this morning, hubby was already on the couch, doing his morning reading and drinking coffee. I saw that half the lemon cake was left and one madeleine cookie. I suggested that we cut one piece of cake for E and toss the rest. Hubby agreed. So I did, making sure to run water over the remaining cake before tossing it in the garbage.

I am embarrassed to admit that I have been known to pull something back out of the garbage to eat (if it was still wrapped, of course.) But still. Is that pathetic or what. No addiction problems here ladies.

I am sitting on the couch in my pjs, and hubby is waiting for me to finish this so that we can take the two poodles out for their morning constitutional. It is sunny and warmer than it has been recently. I think it will be a good day.

I should work at my job today, but the child in me is saying no way. I think I will head to the adult lodge and write instead. I should be able to get a lot done.

If I can slip out before my littlest is up, that would be good. She likes to sit on my lap and snuggle in the morning, which I enjoy. She also really likes to snuggle when she is supposed to be in bed at night. At bedtime she suddenly gets this intense desire to give me lots of hugs. Which is just so sweet and kinda funny. But then she doesn’t want me to get up or go anywhere. She also doesn’t like it when I am up at my desk working.

Sometimes, it is just easier to sneak out before she gets up. Yes, is that lame or what.
