Just Love

Ever since last night I have been in a funk. Something happened last night where my feeling were really hurt. I went to bed feeling sad and lonely. I felt even worse when I woke up and debated about calling the person that had upset me. By 9am this person called me and we talked things out a little. I don't think this person realizes how much of my heart she really has.

Today's weather has been perfect. I had lunch with 2 former co-workers and it was fun catching up. It's been two years since I worked with them and it's amazes me at how my life has completely changed since then.

After lunch I did something I haven't done in a long time: I went shopping and bought a couple things I have been wanting for a while. I spent entirely too much money, but that's OK. I even bought some special treats for Sophie and the cats. We were all pampered today.

This is the face I get to see each night,
and I am reminded:
if in doubt, love.

Actually the occasional splurge is even better than splurging all the time, because it's special and you really enjoy it! What all did you get yourself?

I finally splurged on a truly decent new phone this week, because the called id on my old one hardly ever worked and I got sick of answering telemarketers! The new one is screening those annoying people out nicely!!
