There was this one day I got engaged, Part Three: The Food Poisoning Part



Chris and I stayed home last Tuesday with food poisoning. We had had a few bites of salmon on Sunday night that hadn’t quite been cooked all the way, and that’s what we blamed it on. So we spent a miserable little vacation day watching Veronica Mars and eating Saltines.


Chris recovered just fine, but for some reason I stayed semi-sick Wednesday and Thursday, then had a complete relapse on Friday. This was problematic, because Chris had made reservations for us to go whale watching on Saturday, as his “new thing of the month.” I texted him at lunch on Friday to ask if he’d lose money if we couldn’t go. He texted back that he cancelled the reservations. My co-workers at lunch gave me suggestions about how to get better. I headed home early and slept the rest of the day.


The next morning, Saturday, (yes, the Saturday!) I woke up early. And this is where the first miracle happened. Because I don’t get up early on Saturdays. If, on the rare chance, I happen to wake up early, I simply roll over and fall asleep again. On this particular Saturday, however, I lay in bed, awake at 7:45am, and thought, “Hey, why not get some homework done right now?”


I know, right? Totally a God thing.


Chris asked if we could go do something outside if I finished my work early enough, since it was such a beautiful day and I was feeling better and we were missing out on whale watching and all that. I suggested geocaching, and he got to work writing down coordinates for geocaches around La Jolla Coves.


At 12:30, we were in the car, free from homework for the weekend, and headed into the rest of our beautiful day.

    I'll have to keep in mind that God will have me do crazy stuff, like get up early the day of my engagement. Good to know. 😉
    That is awesome that it worked out that way.
