Hurray! After work today, just as soon as I get home, we are going to Brookfield for the weekend. “R’s” home town. Where we bought the house. Where we bought his house back!
R in typical man-fashion (he is the most heterosexual gay man on the planet) mentions a day or so ago that he’s going to Brookfield for the weekend.
I was startled. Huh?
“I told you I was going back in a couple weeks when I got back last time.”
But he hadn’t mentioned it even once since then and what he actually said was that he was going back some time before July overtime begins!
I was happy for him but also a bit annoyed. If he had made that clear I might have gotten Saturday off and been able to go with him. And I am liking Brookfield more and more–which is a good thing.
I was casually mentioned it to my boss (read: bitching) and she says, “Maybe I can give it to you….”
I was startled again!
Then she comes to me and says that yes, she can. So I am going! Not only that, but this wonderful lady I work with is going to cover the shift for me. I get to spend the weekend with R.
And it looks like the hot tub works!
*does the Snoopy Dance*
I love a hot tub.
I love not having to work Saturday.
I love going away for the weekend.
I love the fact that there will be peace and quite and maybe I can get another 12K words done on my book (this past week has been very productive!).
I love the fact that I will be with R for full two days!
That’s a lot to love.
And that’s a lot of blessings.
Thank You Universe!
