Night

The night is one of those things that plays tricks on you. But before we get to night a bit of back story. I am the father to a boy. (if you regularly read my blog you know that.) He is one of the cutest most awesome boy in the world. Most little boys have tons of crap (toys not literal crap) and we tend to find his stuff all over the place. He also tends to put random stuff no where near where it should go. So I walked out the front door to take out Rosie and there in the grass was one of my little mans basketballs.

I took the ball and did what most guys would do, I took the ball and shot pretend shots into the air. One other fun fact about me is that I live in the country. I live in a neighborhood but still have 2 acres of land. I see more stars in the average night than I would in an entire year in Marietta. (I have more lights here but they have SO many more restaurants). Anyway, I shot the ball into the air, and got kind of dizzy. That may sound strange but everytime that ball went high up in the ball it seemed to stand still and the sky seemed to move/spin. I held the ball and looked at the sky. It made me think “there is something that I just love about night” here are my reasons.
1) I like dark. I tend to turn all the lights off in the house. Right now there is just a TV and 1 light on in the room. I just prefer dark.
2) its cooler. The day is SO FREAKING HOTTTT right now. And its killing me.
3) I like to walk at night, we don’t really get to do that since L usually is asleep by the time we could walk.
4) I am a night owl. I just like the night.

So why share this…I am not sure. I just think I saw the sky kind of spin and I was a bit overwhelmed at how huge the universe is. Pretty nuts. There ya go for tonight.
