Ricky, I'm home!
This is one of those sweet moments where I feel completely peaceful and happy. I worked the weekend and went off the clock fifteen minutes ago, at 8:00p.m. Yay! The Mr. and I have been working on our Ricardo room pretty much constantly for two weeks and it's more or less done, just a few little details to tend to. Now we can sit back and enjoy how fabulous it looks!
Add to that the fact that Dean has a vacation day tomorrow and I am off, no major house chores demanding our attention means a really truly day off day off. I am going to wake up to my wonderful home and what is sure to be a cool morning in Connecticut, Michigan. Best of all, we'll wake up together and have a whole day to ourselves. A movie? Stay home and relax? Who knows? I just know that on Monday there is no alarm clock, no kissing good-bye for the next twelve hours and a cup of coffee waiting for me and my favorite guy. I'm thinking of it as a twenty four hour date.
The memories (and aggravation) of working the weekend are already getting fuzzier. My real life is back in focus.
Believe it or not, I can't wait for Monday!
Danny: His arm has not been amputated, the doctors continue to attempt other means to fight the infection. None of the skin grafts (live or cadaver) have been successful. Today he is scheduled for surgery and we will hear this evening what the update is. His prognosis has not changed.
Small grace: Windows. Seriously!
