Some of you who read my blog regularly know Kelvin & I went away this weekend to check out Grande Prairie where he was applying for a job.  Still don’t know if he got the job, but I’m glad to be home.  This morning we had an appointment with the furniture repair guy to come in & fix a defect on our couch.  This is the 2nd time we have had the same bolt break – I am so glad I talked Kelvin into the extended warranty when we bought it.

As I was busy putting things away from our trip, I started a load of laundry & asked Kelvin to remove his suspenders from his jeans as I would be doing a dark load of laundry next (yes, Kelvin wears suspenders).  While Kelvin was removing his suspenders, the furniture repairman arrived & Kelvin got involved with helping him turn the couch over & explain the repair needed.  When the repairman went down to his truck to get his staple gun, Kelvin vacuumed under the parts of the couch we generally can’t reach.  About half an hour later the repairman left.

“Baby, have you seen my coffee cup?” Kelvin asked.

“No, when was the last time you had it?”

“I don’t remember.  I’m pretty sure I made myself a cup of coffee, but I can’t find it.”

“Check the Keurig to make sure you actually made yourself a cup.”

After checking the Keurig, “Yep, it’s my brand in the machine & it’s still warm so I must have a cup somewhere around here.”

“You went into the office to check the couch batteries, did you leave it in there?”

After searching the office, “Nope.”

“Check around your briefcase on the table.  It’s kind of hard to see with it open there.”

After searching the table, “No, it’s not there.”

“What else have you done today?”

“I was only on my laptop before the repair guy arrived.”

“Well, I don’t know honey, I haven’t seen it.”

Kelvin walks around the apartment, looking in every room.  “Found it!  I must have put it on my dresser when I was removing the suspenders from my jeans.” (eye roll)

Don’t worry, his coffee was still warm – he drinks from a travel mug all the time because he doesn’t like cold coffee.
