Yesterday was a good day. I only woke up a couple of times overnight, Dad came out for the day, and J got home last night.
I was a little anxious when I got up this morning. I know Dad is family but we don’t often have guests and I wanted to make sure things went well. I did a bit more tidying and took some PRNs just to be on the safe side.
Dad got here around noon. He brought along a biofeedback headband that he wasn’t using anymore and wondered if it would be helpful for me. We spent some time setting it up and played around with it for a while. It looks very interesting – I am looking forward to trying it out.
We talked for a while and then walked to the grocery store to pick up some stuff for lunch (I’d used up the last of my ham on the mini pizzas the night before). Lunch was sandwiches (with homemade buns – thanks Mom!) and Doritos, with blueberry muffins for dessert (thanks again Mom!).
After lunch we kept on talking. We talked about all kinds of things. Some serious, some interesting, some funny… all kinds of stuff, then took a look at his phone and downloaded the albums that he’d bought but weren’t showing up for some reason.
We ordered a pizza for supper, devoured it, and went back to talking and poking at his phone, trying to get everything where it should be. We talked through the whole thing, too.
Before we knew it, it was 7:30PM and Dad had to hit the road. I was shocked at the time and sad that he had to leave, but I had a good time and I think he did too. I waved and watched him drive out of sight and then went back inside.
Dad, if you read this – thanks for coming out! I had a good time and I hope we can do it again soon! Mom, if you read this – thanks for the buns and muffins and I hope you come out sometime soon too!
It turned out that I didn’t need any more PRNs throughout the day, and now that I think about it some more, I feel kind of silly for taking the ones in the morning. There were no plans, no bad news or anything, just a good time where we talked the roof off and enjoyed hanging out.
After Dad left, I kept the phones near so I could hear any updates from J on her trip home. Once again, everything went really well, and she got home around 1AM.
IT WAS SO GOOD TO SEE HER AGAIN!
I was happy and relieved when she came in the door. I gave her a big hug and after she got sorted out we sat down and she told me about her trip. We didn’t talk for too long – my eyelids started to droop after a while and she had been up for something like 19 hours – but it was wonderful being able to chat face to face. I know I said a couple of posts ago that the video chats are fantastic, but nothing beats being there in person!
So… yesterday went pretty well. Everything went perfectly, I had a great time with Dad, and my sweetie got home! Doesn’t get much better than that.
