Count Down Two Days…

I guess I’m getting ready for East Coast Time… I’ve been waking up at 4 AM for the past two days, thinking about all that needs to be done before I leave, and just too excited to sleep. I guess that’s OK ‘cause in two days 4 AM will be 7 AM. I just have to remember that on the other end. I hit the wall last night around 9 but kept going anyway. Not good.

Anyway, sad to say, Eileen couldn’t make it this time. Eileen is this amazing beautiful woman (I think I keep using that phrase about my friends, but I can’t help it). She’s a writer, specifically a screen writer, though she has co-authored several books as well. She gets passionate about her subjects and throws herself into her work with an energy that I envy. More importantly, to me anyway, is that she is a faithful, honest, true friend who looks me in the eyes and speaks the truth with such depth and insight that makes me become a better person and believe that I really can move mountains and change the world.

Our home is her home away from home, and when she visits she gets me out of my rut and takes me, and our dog Wallace, for walks around the Spring Lake. She always seems to come when the stress of my Day Job begins to feel overwhelming. When she’s here, I can breathe more deeply and see the horizon. And it’s going to be OK.

Wallace, our Golden Retriever, thinks she is his Personal Love Slave. When she is here, I become nothing to him.

I’m sorry she couldn’t come this time, but just as well…. I’m a maniac right now, with preparations… endless preparations….

Gotta go… last day at the Day Job….

    Oh my. How kind. Did Wallace have a hand in this…a wee bit of bribery to get his LS back sooner? 🙂

    Yes. Wallace sat next to me, with his head in my lap, and his deep brown eyes looking up at me. He was telling me how he really felt about our Eileen, and how sad he was that she didn’t come to see him. He promised to be really good and to stop shedding for a whole month if I said really nice things so that she would just come back! I took him up on his offer. 🙂
