|'I took B out w/my lucky visor'|
I had been so engrossed with my chores, cleaning out the DVR, napping and playing Scramble w/my roomies' pops - I know right - that I hadn't heard the garage door. But back to the surprise and you know I love surprises (Day 21), my Roomdog (Day 2) had stopped by. Now, I talk to her everyday, several times a day but hadn't seen her in about a week and we hadn't spent any what I like to call 'roomdog time' in a minute. 'Roomdog time' is essentially when we get together and do absolutely nothing but enjoy each others company. And generally, it looks a lot like conversation ;-) with snacks.
Now, what's pertinent isn't that she stopped by, she stopped by for absolutely nothing. She didn't need to borrow sugar, eggs or milk. No, she didn't owe me any money and she wasn't even certain I was home until she opened the garage door. But now this mundane day, that I had lamented about became magical. I know right, do we even use words like magical?
And I say magical because within a split second the day no longer felt wasted. Gone was my wondering about how to make the day incredible - it was now chock full of incredible possibilities. We talked about Scandal, upcoming spa days, the mechanic, our costco rebate check, and my much needed pedicure (boot camp is hard on a sista's feet). Basically, I don't know what we talked about but those 60 minutes or so turned the day into an all out 'roomdog party'. Laughing like children, hanging on to each others every word -- we talked about everything and nothing, just like we've done a gazillion times before and I pray that we're blessed enough to do a gazillion more.
