But if I had to narrow it down (why would I though?) I'd pick lunch time as my favorite time of day.
Angela and Holly are finally waking up (at six, it's not like they're lazing around all day, it just feels like that to me) and somehow they take the time to talk to me. They don't realize it, but I'm so eternally grateful for this. It's gotta be the busiest time of day for them- Holly's got eight kids to get ready and Angela has an actual job- and I've usually sent about fifty nonsense texts by now, but they make time to acknowledge me. It makes me feel all squishy inside. It makes me think maybe I'd break my no touching rule and hug them. If we were on the same continent.
So I fix my lunch, either a salad (to cancel out the two bags of raisenettes I had for a morning snack, duh) or a chicken and gravy pie or (most likely) leftover pizza from the weekend. (We're creatures of habit, we Engelbrechts, and there are very few weekends where we do not order pizza.)
When I sew upstairs, I watch Netflix or YouTube, but during lunch, I get to watch cable downstairs. Best. Thing. Ever. Doctor Who, Call the Midwife, Prey, War&Peace, current (ish) American tv like Blacklist and Elementary the Americans and soon Game of Thrones- man I love tv. Netflix is amazing, but I could never be one of those people who don't have cable.
And the best part? Ever since Nick got healthy and lost a billion pounds and stopped ever getting sick, I've cut down to one Diet Coke a day. ONE. ONE DIET COKE A DAY. Ugh. And I drink it at lunch.
I'm like one of Pavlov's dogs, as soon as I hear myself pop that top, my mouth fills with saliva and I shiver in anticipation of those chemicals sliding down my throat.
So. Food, TV, Diet Coke, and texting with the besties. How could it be ANY better?!?!
