We had to spend a few pieces of eight for breakfast this morning, but it’s always worth it for the BDBIT (Best Darn Breakfast in Town–for those keeping score at home: eggs scrambled, cranberry coffeecake). The smiley faces were free, both the one on the plate, made from bananas, strawberries, grapes and whipped cream–one more reason to love Hobee’s–and the smiley face on 3B as he devoured the one on the plate.
So, that’s one thing that we don’t usually get…actually three things at once: a meal out, a meal out with 3B, and a meal with Sister #1. Not only that, but the baby boy didn’t cry, scream, or throw anything, and neither did 3B. It helps that they kept my coffee cup full.
Another thing that we don’t usually get is the chance for a hot date, but tonight Sisters #1 and 2 bathed 3B and put him in bed, so Mama and I went out to a movie. OK, so perhaps Love in the Time of Cholera isn’t exactly a hot date, but still, it was a movie, and for a couple of hours, we were transported away, with each other.
That means that we can cross those two events off our list of things to do before we die, but here are eight other unfinished tasks to continue this week’s meme.
Eight Things I Want to Do Before I Die:
- Develop patience for others and myself.
- Maintain a regular Buddhist practice.
- Travel again with Mama and 3B, and not just home for the holidays, but trips like the one we fell in love on, which took us throughout Spain and Morocco.
- See 3B grow up to be happy.
- Speak Spanish fluently.
- Follow le Tour through France.
- Remember how to relax.
- Become immortal.
