And I wept. I wept and sobbed like I haven't cried in years. I didn't even know what I was crying about. Sweetness or sorrow. But I just could not seem to stop and yes, it did feel like release and it's probably been overdue for awhile and I haven't let myself get to that place while I'm alone because that would just be too scary.
Both Mr. Moon and Maurice were concerned, of course, and both offered me the best comfort they could. I think I scared them both.
Out of the blue...
And I still feel weepy this morning. Like one of those faucets that you need to use a pair of pliers on to completely shut off and I can't find my pliers.
Ah well. These things happen.
It is a beautiful day and I've been to town to get that little cap screwed back in and it was painless and easy and they are just SO kind in that dentist's office. So very, very kind. After that I went and stayed with the boys for a little while so that Lily could go get blood drawn for a physical and while I was there, Owen had me make a list of things I needed to get at the store before they come over this afternoon. The list was:
1. Extra chocolate to make chocolate milk
2. Chex Mix
And so I did and now I'm home and they'll be here in a few hours. They are both still coughing and glassy-eyed but in pretty good spirits and with no more fever.
One of our little green anoles has found a new home in my pony-tail palm where she is almost perfectly camouflaged but this morning, she made her way onto the chair beside it.
She posed for the picture and then ran back for the safety of the little palm.
I know how she feels.
