Last night turned out to be pretty fantastic. I got Röbert’s favorite dinner (Osso Buco) from a local restaurant and a growler of IPA from his favorite microbrewery while I allowed my new mother’s helper to be alone and in charge for just a few minutes. Don’t worry, I got her to promise not to tell her Mom that I had left her all alone with my littles.
I put the children to bed in record time. They all had a case of the sniffles so I had to administer Benadryl all around. They were out like lights by 6:30.
Röbert was home early, as promised and he brought me the most beautiful flowers. It was so romantic, just like when we first met.
We ate dinner and talked. He seems to feel like we are at a new beginning. He has some regrets about stuff that I couldn’t really follow. Maybe he spends too much time away? The main thing is that we are still so very in love and love our family and will work hard to be in love and not distracted etc.
The rest of the evening was also very beautiful and romantic.
I just can’t believe that Röbert felt like we were disconnected in any way.
This morning, before I went to the gym, I decided I needed to stop by Karen’s house. I know she has been a bad friend to me, but that doesn’t mean I should sink to her level. Also, one of my friends had told me yesterday that Mitch actually left her, so I wanted to make sure that she was okay and also get the whole story.
I brought her some flowers that I had sitting around. I know she never gets special gifts, and I made sure that she knows that I had a beautiful arrangement from Röbert, so she should have some flowers too.
She seemed kind of silent and sad, but no matter how I asked she didn’t say a word about Mitch. I am sure she appreciated the flowers and enjoyed hearing about my romantic evening. I also told her about the Senior Water Aerobics at the gym. I am sure she would enjoy splashing around with a foam noodle and a bunch of her peers.
Speaking of the gym, Hummus was crying again when i picked him up today. Enough is enough. I marched right down to the membership office and demanded they get rid of that crazy lady who is making my baby so unhappy. They agreed that maybe they could reassign her to another job somewhere else, I hope she enjoys cleaning toilets. LOL.
