Last night was the worst night of sleep ever…how many times can I say the word night. Here’s how it went – last night:
11:45pm – went to bed after watching the Olympics (go Phelps, Franklin, and the American Gymnastics team!!)
2:30am – woke up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across…haha.. Apologies to the Beatles. No. Woke up, had some water, checked my messages – realized no one I know writes me after 10pm. Went back to bed.
4:45am – jerked awake from some sort of falling dream. What does it all mean? I’m nervous? I’m afraid? Or was it the tomato sauce at dinner? Went to the bathroom – my husband grumbled and asked if I was OK, then promptly fell asleep – I tried to talk to him and he put his head under the covers. I had important stuff to say.
5:35am – his alarm goes off – it sounds like a fog horn by my face. I grumble because it feels like an hour before he leisurely turns it off. I am convinced he hates me.
5:46am – he walks around like an elephant, stomping in and out of the room, slamming drawers, clearing his throat and putting on his socks – loudly. (I think he would have a different story but it’s my blog).
6:00am – he leaves for work. I’m up. Must. Have. Coffee.

Look at these idyllic photos. This is the mighty Delaware, with its beautiful lush greenery and birds and bugs living in harmony. This is why I love our town. It’s old, historic, and has bits of natural beauty all over the place.
You’d think we were miles and miles from civilization. In reality, we are a hop, skip and a jump from…..
I know this drives some people crazy. Big bad developments killing small, quaint towns etc. I don’t even particularly like Starbucks coffee – I’m more of a Dunkin Donuts kinda gal. But I love the fact that it’s there. I like knowing I can get a ridiculously priced coffee drink with enough caloric intake for my whole day and go see the mighty Delaware and pretend I’m George Washington. What. Like you don’t pretend. Whatever.
I just like my amenities. I love the view, the nature, the majestic beauty of places – but I also love amenities. I need amenities.
You know what makes nature even more enjoyable? A cup of overpriced iced coffee and some bug spray you bought at the corner drugstore.
