Interestingly enough, the one day that I was unable to make a post, Xanga was down.
Yesterday was a lovely day. I don’t say that just because the weather was beautiful, and the sun was shining. I’m also not referring to the fact that we were out on the boat for most of the day, enjoying the breeze. I’m speaking about the joy of having Brock take a day off on one of the days when I’m already home. There is really nothing I love more.
On the surface, it doesn’t seem like this would be a very big deal. But I have been working the weekend shift since November, and Brock works regular hours during the week. So when you consider it a little more closely, the only time we have to spend together is from 6pm to 10pm, Monday through Thursday. We actually get up early and go work out together just to have more time to see each other.
Yesterday, however, was wonderful. Brock took a vacation day so we could have a mini-holiday in the middle of the week. We woke up early and went to the gym. We stopped at Linen’s n’ Things to check out some linens (but left without a purchase.) Brock casually remarked that there were “a whole lot more of things here.” The linen selection was rather small and uninteresting.
Brock made breakfast for us, and then we started to pack up a cooler. Josh (one of Brock’s buddies from high school) showed up and said his girlfriend Amanda was on her way. We loaded up the boat, gave Amanda directions from where she was desperately lost, and ventured out.
I don’t remember looking at a clock, but I would guess that we took off around one o’clock. Brock and Josh took turns wakeboarding behind the boat, and every now and then when it got a little too warm, we’d all jump in the water to cool off. Josh and Amanda had a dinner date, and the next thing we knew, it was 5 o’clock – time to dock. They jetted for their meeting, and we ordered Joel’s (which is a fantastic sushi/japanese cuisine restaurant in Mooresville) then packed up for home. I was relaxed, happy, and totally satisfied.
My killer sunburn is just a reminder of how wonderful yesterday really was.
