My daughter and her doggie have gone to spend the night with her former b.f. I really dislike this man, he has been so bad to my daughter. But here’s the deal: She is 34 years old. She can make her own decisions, good or bad. She knows how I feel about him – I don’t need to reiterate it. God bless her.
Here’s the other truth, I have the house to myself for a few hours or a day or a week, I do not know. But I know that I am alone in my house right now. And I like that a lot. I will rejoice on the day that I wash all the walls, clean the windows, take down the curtains and wash them, scrub all the floors, beat all the rugs, and vacuum up every strand of dog hair. I want my clean house back!
She knows that I need her to find a place by mid-September.
I am off to work now. I am liking my job a little bit more each day. Today I will go to my major meeting of the month, with my new graphs and presentations. No more black and white single-spaced lists of numbers. I will talk with the docs about using the current version of the DSM instead of the shiny new one (which our computer system does not understand). We will talk about forms and information management systems. What fun! And I am not even being slightly sarcastic. I liked this field well enough to get a bachelor’s degree in it. It is so good to be back in it!
