Thursday Thirteen #13

Today was one of those days that started out rotten and somewhere along the line (well, at about 6:45 this evening, actually) turned out just great.

So I humbly offer: Thirteen steps on the road from bad to good.

Adam woke me up half an hour after I'd fallen back asleep this morning because he couldn't find his belt.

He woke me up again a few minutes later to tell me he needed a resume printed for his job interview this afternoon and could I help him find the paper?

Our daughter woke up about 45 minutes after he left for work, and three hours before she was supposed to.

Have you ever seen the silliness they put on TV at that hour of the morning?

Thankfully, we were able to get a morning nap in that lasted until lunch time.

Lunch was rotini and romano cheese (nothing like a little R&R).

The short one in the house agreed to an unheard of second nap this afternoon.

Meanwhile, I was able to get some work done on the website I design in my "spare time" (hah!).

I wasn't expecting Adam to call after work because he had his interview right away, but he did anyway.

I wished him luck and told him I loved him.

He said he loved me, and he'd call on his way home.

He called two hours later to say he got the job.

And they offered him a nearly 30% increase in salary! :)

    Those skewed days can really throw curveballs, with schedules messed up and people a bit more stressed than usual - but it sounds like yours ended well. Yay for that!
