Today is a Foggy Day (in Laura Town).
Guess I will just do a quick runthrough of the past couple of days. Nothing too fascinating, but you know how I do like to recount my boring life!
On the last day of 2008, Wednesday, I can in to work for four hours. It was even a bit fun, as Milly and I had our own New Year's dance party. We even got handsome DD to join us for part of one song. There is no photographic evidence that I'm aware of and everyone should be mightily thankful. Later, I went home and ran Handsome Lad and Girlie Girl around a bit. Handsome Lad went to his dad's for the night, Girlie Girl went with her friends, and I went out to meet another personals guy. We went out to dinner. He's a very nice guy and I liked his looks even more in person than from his photos. I felt comfortable with him and we had a nice talk over dinner. He hasn't really dated in a long time and I didn't get the feeling he was so into me. We left it with a little cheek kiss after dinner and he went off to his party...and no word since, so...well, it was a nice dinner out anyway. I was back at the house by 8:30 and by then sort of regretting my decision not to make plans. I admit to feeling rather pathetic, but that probably had less to do with it being NYE than it just being my somewhat constant state. haha!
On the first day of 2009, Thursday, I spent a nice afternoon at the park with Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad, and the Kick Back Dude family. It was a really pretty day, almost perfect weather. We had lunch at the park and let the kids run around. I wouldn't have minded calling it a day after it started getting time to leave, but they decided to come over to my place to hang for a bit. Somehow I got left in charge of Love Bug and Little Prince while the rest of them went off shopping. Two tired babies after a day at the park were still more appealing than shopping though. :-) We had dinner together and watched an episode of House we hadn't gotten to yet and then they finally decided to take the kids home. Whew. Handsome Lad was going to his dad's again, so Girlie Girl and I decided to go to a movie. We saw Doubt. A very powerful film. I truly enjoyed and recommend it if you don't mind your movies more about feelings and ideas than high pitched action. All of the acting was, of course, amazing.
And this brings us to today. Back at work. It is pretty quiet and the day is dragging a bit. As you can see from the picture it was rather foggy this morning and the day has remained a bit gloomy. I suppose other people are out enjoying their last bit of time before returning to school and regular work schedules. As for me, I am pushing through the stupid ache which plagues me like some cheap version of genuine pain. I am determined to be thankful for what I do have. There is so much! Why does my stubborn self tend to focus on what I am lacking? It isn't necessary or useful. Life. Is. Good. Believe it.
