There most certainly have been many ups, downs, hills and valleys in our past 18 years together. I have never once regretted marrying my "soul mate" in the least little bit ever. There still are, and still will be, many more trials and tribulations ahead of us, with the knowledge we will always have each other as they unfold before us .... through all the "good times and the bad times" we will see them through together.
This day I was not to drive alone on my way up "North of the Checkerboard" to my weekly Doctor's appointment. This day I had Rob to go along with me for Company as he was scheduled to get his Flu Shot today too.
Rob had not gotten home until 3:30 am, so had not much sleep by the time I had woken him to go as our scheduled Doctor's appointment was at 9:00 am. Off we went just after 8:30 am, arriving 5 minutes earlier then our appointed time (he drives obviously a bit faster then I). The Doctor had not been in yet, so the girls were kind enough to provide Rob with a much needed cup of coffee ... thank goodness ! We waited as long as we possibly could, but by the time the clock at struck 10 o'clock the Doctor had not yet shown. We had to leave as Rob had to work this day from morning until evening. We rescheduled another appointment for the upcoming Tuesday.
By the time we had gotten back home it was just after 10:30 am (he must have gone a bit slower on our return...ha!), with 2 hours of our day already behind us and nothing accomplished. I really hate when my day starts like this. What a waste of time and energy is about how I feel about it all. Regardless the day was not going to wait any longer for me, so "on board" I got.
Lots of dust bunnies to be rounded up, along with a brand new Bandit I collected from off the floors (and carpets). I am happy to say I might not have gotten any "deep" cleaning done, but I did give a couple rooms a good "Lick and A Promise" ....
How many paragraphs back had I raved about the wonders of 18 years of togetherness? Upon going into to begin the "lick and promise" in our back spare bedroom I had the pleasure of coming across some unfinished business that I believe had begun days ago ....
Oh my "shattered" nerves .... !"
That could have been another "little" downside to my day, but on the flip side ....
I also had lots of "Happy Mail" today. Two in my Mailbox via Post Crossings and one in my Email Inbox.
"What does your "pickle jar" look like?"
I don't know about anyone else, but I want LOTS of golf balls and pebbles in my life, and I don't even golf !
Almost 7:30 pm already here, with four "Checkerboard Aussies" soon needing my undivided attention, lots of little things yet to be done, and a phone call to my "Soul Mate" of the past 18 Years to be made before I call it a day, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
