Yesterday, I had my youngest home from school with me. He's sick. Again. We REALLY should have gotten him a flu shot like we did last year.
It made for a long day. I love getting to spend the extra time with him, but sick kids are just needy.
So, evening comes along. It's 11:30 PM and I'm showered and ready to call it a night. Suddenly, I decide to do LAUNDRY. This is SO ME. Middle of the night cleaning frenzy. I work a bit then sit down to play some online Scrabble. I just need some alone time, you know?
I chat online.
Play more Scrabble.
Comment on some blogs.
You know how it goes.
Suddenly, it is 4 AM! HOW did that HAPPEN?
I dash upstairs and try to get some sleep asap.
This morning I'm drinking my tea (and yawning), when my NEIGHBOR (and best friend) calls.
"WHAT were you DOING last night? Are you OKAY?" she wants to know.
"What do you mean?" I ask.
Well, it turns out she came downstairs in her OWN home last night and said that MY house was lit up like a BEACON in the night to the point were she DIDN'T NEED TO USE A LIGHT TO GET DOWN HER OWN STAIRS (yeah, our houses aren't that far apart).
And the funniest part of it all is that SHE'S ILL and she wants to know if I'M okay. Heck, I was just cleaning a bit and goofing around on the computer. I'm feeling a tad guilty that I worried her to such a degree that she'd call to check on me feeling like she does!
Plus, a bit disconcerted that THE NEIGHBORHOOD is aware of WHAT I'M UP TO AT NIGHT. EEKS! :)
