Nate caught me...

Well, it finally happened, Nate caught me. It's been going on for a little while and now it's out in the open. There are no more secrets. Last night, the truth came out...

Nate works at night so naturally I get lonely in the evenings by myself. My sister, Logan, usually stops by for dinner and a visit before class on Tuesdays and Thursdays but the other days I have no one to keep me company. It started out innocently enough. First a little Jim Croce playing in the background, next lighting a candle to make the place smell good, turning off the lights while eating chocolate truffles.

Sounds romantic, eh? What is Haley talking about? What juicy gossip is she confessing too?

Actually, the truth is this:

Last night I was alone so I called my folks to see how they were doing now that they had an empty nest. I was also getting ready to jump in the shower but first I lit one of my favorite apple cinnamon candles (because I do want the house to smell good) and turned on the radio (I like to have a little music while I shower). I turned off all the lights but the ones in the bathroom (trying to save money and electricity) and started stripping down to my nothingness (you can't shower properly if you have clothes on).

It was about 10:45 and Nate doesn't get home until 1:00 or 2:00.

Imagine my surprise and delight when the door knob started turning and all of a sudden my husband comes home early.

Imagine Nate's surprise to walk into his house early and find the lights out, a candle lit, empty truffle wrappers laying on the ground next to a blanket, a little Phil Collins playing softly in the background and his wife standing naked in the middle of the kitchen (still on the phone with my folks, by the way).

"Who were you expecting?" he asked me.

I had been caught "Baby," I said "It's not what you think. I can explain." I quickly hung up the phone "I was just getting ready to jump in the shower and..."

He interrupted "Maybe I need to check the shower..."

And that my blogging friends, is a lesson to you all. If you want a quiet evening alone and set a relaxing atmosphere, think about how it will look to your husband if he walks in unexpectedly.

I hate standing there talking on the phone naked as a jay bird. I always wonder what that person would think if they knew I was naked as a jay bird. I've never been caught, though...

Are you kidding?? Harry would strip and get in the shower with me!! He would have thought I planned it just for him!

Haley, as usual you have me rolling on the floor with laughter!!!
But I'm sure Nate was quite happy to find you like that....!!! ;-)

Recaro wouldn't be complaining!

Nothing like a little jelousy to keep the sauce simmering. I remember the first time Joey caught me with one of my many boy toys. It was so romantic.
I feel so guilty for not calling you guys on your birthdays. Especially since yours is the day after mine. I am the one sibling who is a HORRIBLE long distance correspondant. Forgive me!

If Nate knows anything, he's not worried. The chocolates are your alibi. There's no way you would share your chocolate truffles with someone, so it's obvious you were alone!

If Grant caught me like that, I would scream. One time, he came home from work early and reached a hand into the shower to gently touch my arm and let me know it was just him-- to try to prevent me from screaming when I got out of the shower and found someone in my house. I didn't scream because Eleanor was napping, but I jumped out of my skin and possibly even cried a little.
