Our hope for a “night of deep, uninterrupted sleep” did not come true. We both woke up around 1 AM and I know I slept fitfully until I gave up trying at around 5:45 AM. I exchanged text messages with my mom until 6:15 AM and then got up to cook breakfast. Coffee, eggs, and oatmeal later, husband showered and left for work for a half day. I spent my morning sitting on the couch reading. When husband arrived home in the early afternoon, we ate leftovers and departed for an expensive trip to Costco and Big W to stock up on household items. While on the way home in a full car, we saw our first ‘roos while driving near wineries and fields of sheep and cows. Yay kangaroos! We’re spending the evening watching Blade Trinity and reading, once again hoping to stay up until after 8:30 PM.
