Almost ready for bed here, worn out from grandparenting today, being on vacation and therefore available to do all kinds of helpful things. It’s a good kind of tired though, and nice to know that the boxes needing to be unpacked is getting smaller and smaller.
Sir has run out to get batteries for our thermostat, so the air conditioner will work and we won’t have a heat stroke over night. Needless to say, i appreciate that a lot.
But sitting here waiting for him to get back, I had a sudden memory of how it feels to have someone stroke my hair, gently pushing it back from my face. I had such an urge to feel that again, it was almost overwhelming. And for just a moment, i felt my “little girl” deep inside me. (There ya go, Jade. Not “good girl” energy, but “little girl” energy. That’s close, right?)
Date night is Friday night, maybe i’ll mention it.
