Ugh, It’s Adrienne Day and I am on a business trip. I woke up early with the intention of making breakfast before I left for the airport, but I realized 2 things:
- Adrienne was not going to think it was a treat to be woken up to eat breakfast at 6am.
- If I tried to make breakfast I was going to miss my flight.
I have to be honest, this Adrienne day snuck up on me. Things have been a little bit absolutely insane lately and I didn’t plan for this like I should have. She should have woken up to breakfast in bed and had flowers delivered, and found a present waiting for her that I had bought weeks ago. None of that happened. Instead I got on a plane. I got on the same plane twice actually because they found a “suspicious object” and had to take us all off, do a full security sweep of the plane, and then re-board us. My bet is they found a spork on the floor and TSA swooped in to handle the situation. So I got on a plane on Adrienne day, flew a couple states away and worked all day. In fact, I am still sitting at my desk.
Adrienne, I am sure, woke up and made breakfast for the kids. Made lunch for Reese, helped him get ready for his early morning Spanish class, and dropped him off. I bet she came home and read with the girls a bit, did some chores around the house, made them lunch, got them ready for and took them to gymnastics. She probably ran some errands, did some more things around the house, made dinner for kids and is getting them ready for bed soon. A pretty normal boring day.
I wish I had made the day special for her. We will have a raincheck and I promise I’ll make it up to her.
Now, all that said, I really like our not too exciting days. Last night I was walking towards the dining room for dinner and there was this perfect image, framed through the doorway, lit warmly from above. My wonderful wife and 3 kids sitting around the table set with gold flatware, talking and smiling, and I felt as happy as I have felt about anything. I couldn’t be more in love with Adrienne and more happy that I get to spend my days with her, boring or not.
Also, she is hot.
Take a second and wish Adrienne a Happy Adrienne Day!
