Jesse said this picture was "nice" but not "exciting". That happens sometimes. I did another painting this week, but sometimes, things just don't turn out like you want them at all.
Whoo-ee! Ride me high
Tomorrow's the day my man's gonna come
Oh, oh, are we gonna fly
Down in the easy chair!
Lyrics by Bob Dylan
Actually, Toby is coming home tonight! I pick him up at the airport in OKC this evening - yeha or as GBN1 says - Heehaw! Thirty years of marriage and he still makes me happy. This morning I was reminded how precious and fragile marriage can be when I read Sean’s recent posts at Docinthebox. My heart goes out to him, but I am not sure any words can be comforting.
Last night, Jesse and I grabbed a bite to eat with the Faughts (Lindsay’s family) and then went to see “Ratatouille” at the cheap show. It was very well done and lots of fun. If you have not seen this movie and you like animation, you will like this.
Girls Just Want to Have Fun!
At dinner, I got more of the scoop on Jesse’s latest adventure. The girls started off slow at dinner - probably because they had just had a long day at work. But before dinner was over, they were wound up and telling stories. Their trip to NY was not as exciting as they would have liked. They had lots of plans that fell through, and they did not get to do all that they wanted to do. Their host disappeared for most of Saturday without explanation after promising to take them to Canada for the day. So they sat around and waited on their host to come home only to be told that the Canada plan was not happening - no reason given. Later that evening they went to a drive-in movie. When you have high expectations, and those expectations get dashed, it can be hard. I was proud that they put on their big-girl panties and dealt with it well. These girls are just pretty good at making their own fun - no matter what. They made friends where ever they went. I am sure they made others happy with their mere presence.
