I am delighted that it is finally Friday because this past week has been a struggle, both physically and emotionally. With my leg finally healing and after being cleared yesterday for limited prosthetic use, I'm looking forward to the weekend!
I rarely have plans that do
not revolve around my family or work, but this weekend is a rare
exception. On Sunday I'm going to get to see my friend Tammy whom I
haven't seen in over two years. Not only were Tammy and I roommates in
college (just a few years ago) but we also shared an apartment for a few
years after we graduated. Although we are still close, I'm looking
forward to some one-on-one time with my dear friend.
years Tammy has indulged my wacky ideas, most notably the time I
convinced her that Karate lessons would be a great way to meet men. We
didn't meet any suitors, but she did break a toe and I suffered a
humiliation when my uniform split in the middle of class revealing my
Donald Duck underpants to the entire dojo. Perhaps the first benefit of
my foot injury presented when we were finally able to quit the lessons
because of my inability to participate.
Scott and Robby are
going to have a "boys day" while I am gone. Normally I would feel a
tinge of guilt about leaving for the entire day. This time I feel
nothing but excitement. It's been a long time since I've done something
just for me. I wonder what trouble we'll find this time!
