Things actually turned out quite well tonight. We took Clementine to K.'s house around 6:30 and went to dinner at 7:00. We shared a great Pinot Noir with dinner....so I probably had 2 glasses. Dinner was excellent. We even drove back into the city and drove down our old block where we lived for 14 years. It was our first house... and the home we brought Clementine home to as a newborn...so it has special meaning in our hearts. Then we drove and picked up Clementine around 9:30. She was still up and playing Connect 4 with K. I did break our contract with each other- (meaning that we did pick up Clem and drove home after Clark had nearly 2 glasses of wine. Thankfully, we only had to drive a little over a block from our neighbors that were watching her. Dinner was calm and we did have a great time. Thank you those of you that commented. I'm better now and plan to have a sweet day tomorrow. Clark did tell me as we were driving tonight that "you are really beautiful..." Wow, just as I blogged about how I felt down and under appreciated....I received those nice words. God is in control and I will focus on this tonight.
On a sad note....I just saw on TV that John Travolta's son was found dead....It brings you back to living in the here-and-now and in the moment. One just never knows. What a heartache for the family. I cannot imagine. I am also sending out love to JeNN at What Now? Her daughter Annie would have turned 27 tomorrow as we share the same birthday. What an awesome girl with a special mom with unlimited love. I pray that she will have a peaceful day.
Take Care and Have a Great Day everyone. Thank you for letting me rant earlier. Sometimes a girl's just gotta get things out. Goodnight.
