A Moment of Clarity

Yay, I got all my wrapping done! We're in California now (after a long night of flying on Wednesday night: snowstorm in Las Vegas --> re-routed to Phoenix --> missed connection to Ontario --> flew to LAX --> long drive home.) The wrapping station is upstairs and I have several things to wrap because we actually thought about Christmas all year long and picked up little things for people throughout the year. DH is downstairs doing "work" on the computer (found out later he was fiddling with the webservers and creating problems that wouldn't've existed if he hadn't messed with them, lol) and DS was wide awake. DH ended up being primarily in charge of keeping Little Bug (DS) out of trouble, which meant he didn't get as much "work" done. When I was finally all done wrapping everything, one of us said something about being so productive, followed by a comment about how unproductive DH was in the same amount of time. He explained that it was because he was chasing Little Bug around. I paused for a moment and looked at him, then asked if maybe he could see now why I don't get as much work done during the day at home. I think maybe something dawned on him in that moment. Whether he remembers it, I don't know, but at least I got through for a moment!!

Oh, Jennifer, I used to live in Sacramento, CA! I envy you being in CA right now. I'm buried waist deep in snow! UGH!

I saw the storm on the news in Las Vegas.

Glad you made it to your destination safely.
