20 March 2014 – WTG (way to go)
Sigh, yesterday, in my excitement to get ready to go home for a visit, I inadvertently made someone cry. I just finished packing up and Irene came into work…I was telling her that I was getting ready to go and the next thing I knew, she was crying! Oh god, how shitty did I feel?? VERY! It never even occurred to me that she held me in such high regard and that it would affect her that much to see me go, even for a short while. I don’t even want to think what it will be like when I leave for good. 😦
Before she left for the day though, she had composed herself and told me that she was okay…what a sweetheart.
It was a bit of a boring day yesterday…paced around trying to find things to do to occupy my time.
Once Beth got back from work, it was SPA night! We raided the boys fridge for beer, put on a Matthew Mcconaughy movie in the hopes of seeing him shirtless and then commenced the pampering!
Foot scrubs, exfoliating and balm, then 2 different face masks and finally, a deep conditioning hair treatment! Sweet! Just what the doctor ordered (LL!!)…now if we had just had the Magic Mike movie instead of the one we chose, it would have been perfect! LOL
So I went to bed smelling all girlie for the first time in months…soft feet, hands and hair, and settled in for a good night’s sleep; which I got until the dynamic duo in the tree below me started their rowdy rendition of “Cock-a-doodle-do”! I won’t miss them…and yes, they perch in the TREE all night..I have yet to get a picture of THAT!
That’s it for today.
