The little girl has gone home with Mommy and Daddy and I am having a touch of empty nest syndrome! I had so much fun with her. Everynight at 8 pm I laid her down in her crib and she would sleep all through the night. And what an appetite, she eats like a little truck driver! I truly enjoyed having her. They had a good time at the beach but they missed the baby. When they first got here today she would have nothing to do with them.....lol...I had bought her a swing and hooked it up on my deck and she was swinging away....and she didnt want to be disturbed. lol. Then when they tried to get her out of the swing she wanted me...lol. They werent laughing, but I was....I told them, shes just mad b/c you left her...lol. Eventually she came around.
Tonight I am going to work midnight just to get away! My best friend and I are staying at one of the ladies I take care of all night. We never get to talk or just chill together and since she works for Elva too ( the 96 yr old I take care of) we are both going tonight and having a pj party with Elva! She will stay up with us till 1:30 or 2:00 and we will order pizza and just gab. Sounds like a nice relaxing evening to me. I havent seen Elva for a couple months so it will be nice to spend some time with her. When Elva goes to bed Janice and I will go out on the porch and gab half the night.Then in the morning I am meeting another good friend for breakfast.
I hope you all have a fun weekend....hard to believe summer is almost over isnt it? It went by so quickly! As much as I look forward to Fall I hate to see summer end. Flip flops and shorts are so much easier to deal with than all the coats and boots.
For all of you who wonder what my Ex husband was thinking, I am still giggling about it. I cant imagine what in the world he is thinking! A couple of you asked me if I had any feelings about it...to be perfectly honest, no I have no feelings about it other than I sincerely wish him well. Men are different than women. Not all men, but most men need someone, someone to kind of cater to them and someone to take care of them. ( Dont get upset with me guys.....I mean no harm) Women are different, we have always taken care of things so its nothing new to us. We tend to make a life with our families and children and friends. I enjoy the time with family and friends but I also enjoy solitude. They always say a woman is looking for a husband, but I do believe times have changed, women are much more independant today, they dont really need someone to look after them or support them. I dont feel less of a woman without a husband. I feel very free for the first time in many many years, I like making my own decisions and being responsible for me. I think if you ask most women if they would remarry if something happened to their husband most of them would say no. My Ex always talked about how lonely he was, but he really didnt do anything to make it better. I have never felt the lonliness ( sp) that he talks about, probably because I am a much more outgoing person than him, I tend to take friendships seriously and I think to have a friend you must also be a friend and there may be times you do have to put yourself out for someone else, just as you may have to put yourself out for your family once in a while. Anyone else have an opinion on this besides me?? Id love to hear it!
I will visit all your blogs this weekend. :))......take care.
