So I'm awake early...no great surprise there. However my phone, which as Val mentioned earlier, didn't change with the time zone so it's telling me that I'm awake at 4:45 AM. Ew.
Something happened in the wee hours last night - I don't remember what - that woke up just Val & I. When we realized nothing was wrong I decided to get up to pee, as I really, really needed to go. As I was mentally preparing myself to get up - anyone with back pain knows what I mean - Val mutters, "It's like he *planned* this..."
I wasn't entirely sure she was still awake, so I asked quietly, "Like who planned what?" She sighed. Deeply. I got up & peered over at her bed, and having terrible night vision all I saw was heads & covers. Bella was also in the middle of the bed, with Bubba & Val squished into whatever was left.
I sort of woke up Bella & had her scoot over, then told Val she could move Bubba - I couldn't tell how he was lying there, so I thought I'd leave that up to her.
Again, she sighed deeply, & started to roll over, only to stop & say, "Is this his foot?!" Now remember, this is late, late at night, and we've been on the road. A lot. I wasn't entirely sure what she meant by her question. It seems relatively obvious, but I needed more context. I asked for clarification: "Huh?!"
She the holds up what is, indeed, a Bubba foot. The good part? It had been resting on her chest, and she was lying with her back to Bubba. He was lying sideways with 1 leg over Val's neck.
I lost it. I laughed until I cried, and Val finished dismantling her Bubba necklace without me and promptly went back to sleep. I was tickled, tho, & keep getting the giggles to the point that I woke Cam up. He glowered at me and then rolled over in a "hrmph" sort of way.
I eventually calmed down enough to go back to sleep, but damn.
So Val & I are up, showered, & dressed. We're gonna do as much packing as possible with the kids asleep, then get them up & outta PJs. More later!
