Meanderings From Tuesday

My last post was not my best post.  I think it was borne out of my desire to be more consistent in writing my blog.  I'm not really sure anyone is really reading this, but I have always had this deep inner desire to be a writer of sorts.  I'm thinking that if I truly want to be a writer that I need to spend more time practicing my craft.  It has been said to "write what you know," but I have always thought what if you don't know anything.  I may have used that before but as I get older I'm finding it harder to remember my way to work.

I spoke last time about the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, and now I want to share about Wednesday.  Katie was home with Janet, and I had to go to work.  When I left Katie was still asleep and because she hadn't been feeling well, I was glad.  About 7:30 I got a call at work, I was greeted with "Hi Daddy."  I can't tell you how excited I was.  It was the first time that she had called me at work and I really love these moments.  We talked for a while about things that a man my age can share with a four year old.  She appeared very excited to be able talk to me.  After a while the call of nature hit me so strongly that I had to get off the phone, at least for a short while.  She began to cry.  Of course.  That's my weakness, but I had to go or there would have been a great mess where I was sitting.  I told here I would call her back when I had answered the call.  By the time I called back she was okay because her best friend, Victoria was there to visit for the day.  She did come back to the phone and at one point asked Victoria if she wanted to talk, so I talked to her for a second.  Literally.  But they went off to play and I was forgotten.  Until later.

I had locked my keys in my car so Janet had to drive all the way out my job to let me in.  I won't be doing that again anytime soon, either that or I need to find another way into my car.  Seriously Janet is such a good sport about things like that, sometimes I think she wonders what she got into when she married me.  If she only knew.
