I go back to work next week Tuesday. If you want to see how I feel about this, here are a couple of posts from a year ago, when I was a silent tree falling in the forest.
This summer, I spent the first five weeks of summer break mostly staying home. Decluttering, computer projects, house and yard projects. Lots of reading, writing, and quiet time. Long walks with Border Collie.
I’ve hardly been home the last few days.
Last Hoo Rahs.
The other day I had a Town day with Daughter. Lunch. Movie. Mall. Daughter also had a dentist appointment.
While she was at the dentist, I cruised the Mall.
I was walking past a women’s dress shop. Beautiful dresses here. They specialize in evening gowns and this store is the scene of my daughter’s senior prom dress purchase.
The store also has flowing, breezy, fancy, schmancy dresses. The type I could picture wealthy women wearing at pool parties.
Personally, I have never bought a dress for myself at this store.
As I walk past this store, a man stands outside, his back to the store window, watching his toddler daughter.
She is performing gymnastic type maneuvers in front of him. As I pass her she begins to add in a slightly loud song/chant to her antics.
I smile. I guess since I am not the one accountable for her, I think she’s pretty darn cute.
After I pass I hear her father tell her, “We never should have let Mommy go in this store.”
