I was feeling a little down today- not sure why- we have every reason to be happy and excited, but every now and then I go through this feeling of longing for our child that really gets to me. Today was one of those days. So, after I got home and was trying to have a moment alone (the dogs seem to know when I'm upset and want to 'help' by getting in my face and trying to give me kisses- it's a nice sentiment, but it's not the most pleasant thing in the world), my sweet husband noticed I wasn't having the best day. He offered to take me out for Ethiopian food and that sounded like the only thing that would make me feel better. Maybe it makes me feel closer to our child(ren), I'm not sure, but it definitely has made me feel better.
Or... maybe it is just that the Ethiopian coffee has made me crazy. We ordered Ethiopian coffee after we finished our yummy dinner of avocado & tomato appetizer, doro wat and a vegetarian sampler. About 45 minutes later (I'm serious) our coffee was served. We were laughing throughout the whole 45 minutes - wondering about our coffee and what on earth they were doing to it. Anyway, it was very good- and very, very strong - even Kevin added sugar to his. We left the restaurant, came home, and then cleaned the entire house. Not just straightened - I mean I cleaned bathrooms, Kevin straightened his closet, and vacuumed. And now I am furiously typing away. :) In the end, the coffee was definitely worth the wait. I'll probably post again later tonight- say around 2 a.m. when I'm still wide awake. Now I'm going to go check on Kevin - I think he might still be cleaning. :)
Addendum - I checked - Kevin is actually making cookies right now!
