why being wrong is sometimes okay

this morning i woke up to the sound of the vacuum going. even though my thoughts were fuzzy due to my lack of sleep, my brain began reasoning the sound of the hum of the vacuum. and this is what it came up with.

1) ben has decided to spontaneously clean, just for the heck of it.

2) something drastic has been spilled and needs immediate hoover attention.

either way, i was at peace with the fact that there was cleaning going on inside the apartment, and it didn't involve me. i closed my eyes again and smiled.

a few minutes later caleb came in to get me up. i walked out of the bedroom and was surprised to see that i was wrong. the same crumbs that graced our carpets last night were still there this morning.

i slowly came to the realization that it had been our upstairs neighbors who were vacuuming during the wee hours. for a second i was disappointed. but then i decided that it was okay that it wasn't our floors being cleaned. because just the thought of it had put a smile on my face and i had woken up in a good mood.

and after getting about 5 hours of sleep, waking up in a good mood wasn't short of a miracle.

***answers to the mini DMV test:

1) b. 15 ft from a fire hydrant
2) a. 3 ft from a bicyclist
3) divided highway ends

the winner is...it's a 3 way tie between


who all got 1 out of 3 right. (though amy was the closest with almost getting 2 out of 3)

thanks for playing!

You know what? In my mind I was going to say Divided Highway ends, but then I figured I wasn't sure either way. Oh well, I came close.
