My husband's away on business and it's the typical 'Kennedy zoo' around here, but this morning my son's surprised me by remembering that it's my birthday (possibly prompted by the 7 a.m. phone call their dad made from some airport to remind them?)
Here's the best part: Over breakfast, my boys informed me they're taking me for dinner tonight. Their dad left money in an envelope and after a heated discussion behind a closed bedroom door this morning they've decided they're taking me to (drum roll) ... Joey's Seafood, where, as my 9 year old said with a proud grin, "We want you to order whatever you want!"
So I have a seafood date tonight and I get to spend the entire day writing a scene I woke up thinking about this morning, a scene I can't wait to work on. Who could ask for more?
