We were going to get home from work, have dinner (soup and chicken quesadillas) and just hang out...
We don't get to do that too much, so we really enjoy it when we can.
Cass had already made dinner,
got into her sweatshirt and sweatpants,
and dinner was on the table when I came in from doing a couple things outside.
I get a phone call from my dad.
He had shot a deer.
Well that's great news.
Bad news is, he's gonna have a hard time cleaning it and pulling it out of the woods.
My dad about a year ago had hip replacement surgery and is scheduled to have it again in January.
My dad also lives about 30 minutes away.
And this is how you know you have a fun marriage....
When your wife packs up the chicken quesadillas,
pours the hot soup in a cool, old school thermos,
blows out the candles, cuts the fire off (gas logs...haha), grabs some hot chocolate
and says "let's go."
Taking life as it comes. Making moments with what is given to you.
You have to make the best with where you are and what you are given!
We had the whole night planned,
but life happened and instead of letting life live us--we lived life.
It was a fun night. My dad and I cleaned the deer, drug it out of the woods, loaded it in the truck and took it to get processed.
We came back to the house and had hot chocolate that my barista wife made,
(no really! she is a barista---Coyote Coffee) and had some popcorn!
Sounds simple and maybe not that much fun--
But life is often times lived in the simple, seemingly insignificant times.
Don't let it live you!
Make memories! Enjoy it!
Don't let little things get you down--don't let little things ruin well laid plans.
Roll with it!
