i drove for the second time in 6 months today… coincidentally, it was also the day my boss came in to town. i picked him up from the airport, after a day of meetings and meals… all i can say is by dinner i was walking with my cane. after dinner walking back to the car my legs froze up and the pain was quickly moving up my arms to take a rest on the left side of my chest. nice. NOT! soooo…. i suck it up, drive to the hotel and drop off my boss… promptly ask my lovely friend to drive and i jump into the passenger seat. no tears today folks!
yeah well, i was not happy. in fact, i was really going into quite the mood. i had to call my husband and tell him we were on the way home. he needed to get in the car and drive my girlfriend home because i was in over my head with the whole “thought i was independent” thing. (please bust out the violins and start playing now)
it all gets worse… while we are driving i find out my baby girl (she’s eleven) is home alone for the first time at night while we are out on this driving escapade. an escapade that we wouldn’t have to be on if i would just get my shit together and win the lottery, so i could have a flippin driver instead of having to “phone a friend” every time i need to go somewhere. (the sarcasm is really heavy at this point… argh!)
i get home and i’m not happy (if you haven’t figured that out by now)… but as i walk up to the back door i see a red ribbon on the door… a little smile on my face. what the…. i go in the house and my girl is in the kitchen and gives me a hug, my smile is growing. i go in the house and walk further and i hear christmas music… and i’m wondering what is going on… and i go check out where the music is coming from… and this is what i see:
BEST DAY EVER!!!!!!! BEST FAMILY EVER!!!!!!!
