Cards on the Table

You know how some days, you wake up and you have to go to work (on a weekend)? You're sitting in front of hours of work with reports to write and edit, with workouts to get done, a sore back, and the clients you just spent your Saturday seeing won't even cover the almost $600 in cell phone bills you have paid in the last 10 days.

And then there's the parties to attend that you have been so excited about but are so overwhelmed with work you think - Gosh I just want to crawl back in bed?

Then you open your mailbox to find simple but loving cards, just to let you know that someone, thousands of miles away, is thinking about and loving you?

Somehow you get that energy back.

You put on those shoes and go to the gym.

You pound out some edits.

You take a shower and put on your new hot boots and get your ass to that party and laugh your head off with your friends.

But before you walk out that door, you look at the growing collection of cards displayed on the table, and you smile.

Yeah, today's one of those days.

Here's to love.

I think I just puked in my mouth.

Nolan Mommy,
And that is why you don't get any cards...

Yey! The Big Cheese really is a big cheese, eh? In a good way of course. :D
