I blasted out of bed this morning, put the bed back together and opted for a shower before breakfast and why? Probably because I pampered myself yesterday. As I left Hoboken on Friday night,(without my phone) my bouts of sneezing were more intense than usual and just as I reached the city limits, just before I moved onto the first highway to return home, I knew I had to turn around for my phone. Ugh… another 45 minutes before I could be home and sleeping.
Yes, my phone was sitting right across from Leora and they had yet to discover it. Back in the car, back on the roads, back home and feeling miserable and just one week before a journey. A day on the couch was in my sights.
Yes, I needed the couch for the whole day and yes, if you had been with me that wouldn’t have happened. Whenever I needed a day or so to recharge- those were hard days for you. Sure, by the evening I was coming back to myself and sure, I would have put myself together for a dinner out with you but honestly, I was happy to end the day where it began, right on the couch as the fire burned out. A day for napping with support from tylenol, soup, leftovers, movies, even a good cry watching one of the last episodes of Downton Abbey- Mary’s wedding.
And it’s a new day-a good Monday ahead, my love. The sun is shining bright, I get to work with Jonathan and my guitar with a clearer head, I get to make sense of my progress with Sandie this afternoon, maybe a visit to gym to play with weights and machines, and maybe today I’ll push myself to prepare my taxes… and for dessert, maybe I’ll start to fill my suitcases.
I know, you’re smiling, grinning, maybe even laughing right now. I feel your warmth.
Miss you Tuv R,
