Apologies for my lengthy absence all week. I wanted to check in really quick before I start watching the movie I rented for tonight. I picked up a pile of mail from our box at the end of the driveway and in it, I spied the familiar Netflix red envelope. When I opened it later on, I smiled to see that it was Just Like Heaven, one of my favorite little romantic comedies. I say little because it’s light and sweet and Reese Witherspoon is in it, as well as my favorite guy, Mark Ruffalo. I didn’t know that it was next in my queue so it was a nice surprise.
I am doing well. Thank you so much for your comments and concerns, and for your support and kindness. I returned to work this Tuesday and today was the first day that I felt like everything was right. I knew where everything was and could answer questions again, I fixed things that were wrong, got an generous load of work done, and felt good. Every other day I felt like I was pretending to be ok. Maybe when you pretend enough, it becomes real, right?
But I have plans for the weekend. I am actually going on a small trip and meeting a friend in real life that I’ve known for years through blogging. I’ll tell you all about it when I get home. We both live in Maryland, but three hours away from each other. It should be good!
Sometimes when I see these fences, I think of my husband and all the work he did fixing them when we first moved here. Then he got so tired, he just couldn’t take care of them anymore. And this is one of the good sections . . .
And speaking of good ~
Between me and my son, we’ve been keeping George walked and happy playing. But I work all day, and my son works the night shift so he’s asleep much of the day which leaves George alone and lonely. So I’ve hired a dog walker, a woman I’ve known since she was just a girl. She graduated from our school with my eldest son, Matt, and came over last night to meet George and he loves her.
I am so glad.
And George is glad because a box of goodies came in the mail this week from one of my readers. I can’t believe how kind people are sometimes, and JC – we all thank you!
I snapped this coming up the driveway after running some errands last weekend with George. I’m sure he wishes he was coming with me this weekend but maybe next time, little fella.
Hope you all have a good one. Thanks for coming by ~
