The first thing Bill and I did when we got on post Sunday night was to drive past our old house to see if the tulips were still there. They were, to my joy.
After class today, I suggested we walk down the street to see an old neighbor. I might stop by our old house to see if the residents are enjoying their blooms.
This school is keeping us busy, but the information is great. I’m glad I have come. But, of all the best laid plans, the girl I lined up to watch my younger children while my mom took the boys to baseball blew me off. I’m trying not to be really angry.
I owe my mom big time, too. I’ll have to send her for a facial or a pedicure or something. She’ll probably be happy just to go home.
Somewhat guiltily I confessed to my husband that I don’t miss the kids. Not yet. Maybe it’s because I’m so busy. If I were sitting on a beach with nothing to do, I might pine for them. But for now, I’m just enjoying going for a run (walk) with my husband and having periods of quiet. No interruptions. No crying. No bottoms that need to be wiped.
Today we’re doing Myers-Briggs personality tests. Guess my type and the person who gets closest will win some Godiva chocolate. Since I’m not home, I’ll keep this offer open until Sunday the 18th. If there are multiple people who get it right, I’ll do a drawing.
