Aww cj, that's wonderful!

I'm smiling because of an email I got today. Do you remember me mentioning the cute young couple from Germany that we met on the boat tour in Manhattan? Our camera battery had died, and we pointed out the moon over the Brooklyn Bridge--it was beautiful. They took a picture of it, and we asked them to send us a copy. I got an email from them today. They had computer problems and weren't able to write before, but they sent us that picture, as well as some others of New York, and of their village in Germany. I invited them to check out DC (we told everyone on our trip about it), so hopefully they will join us.

Barbara

Don't feel guilty about that Trish..I know that feeling so well..Those half hours or even a weekend alone are our way of rebuilding so we can share our lives with love not resentment..We treasure a hot bubble bath alone no kids banging on the door..That luch with a girl friend..I find when they are over I'm looking forward to seeing DH and getting a hug and kiss and one of his constant questions..They might irritate me, but by golly they are mine!!! Enjoy and rest Trish you will feel so good later

I have three smiles now!

I was happy spending the whole morning (smile number 1) with Tony going to doctors, shopping, making lunch together and then working out a plan to get ready for our carpets FINALLY being installed on Thursday (yay, smile number two). But when he left it was really nice to just sit down and regroup to figure out how I will do my stuff in my own way . Then he called me 7 times in the next twenty minutes just to ask if he should wait for the prescriptions as he had time before going to work, then to tell me he WAS waiting, then did we need anything at Costco, next "they have such and such", he was leaving Costco, then did I want to pick out hardwood samples for him to look at tomorrow and finally that he was at work and got everything.

My last smile is that Trish was happy to be alone and was sure in 20 minutes she would miss Paul. Tony never gives me a chance to miss him ....but that's okay too!
