The other night I got an earful from one of the night nurses. She is a divorced mother of five. We had talked about the kids – I always talk about my kids. Then she asked about my husband – well, I see him in passing as we change shifts at the hospital. So I got a lecture about keeping a marriage alive. Something she said must have gotten through to me because I asked Jason out on a date to an exclusive location with fabulous entertainment and company.
You guessed it! He came to the fabulous suite of TCH, West Tower, 15th floor, room 5. We enjoyed take out Chinese food. We had the complete view of Fannin Street from our window. We watched TV. But we were together. Yes, we did some strategic planning for our family, but mostly we ate, talked politics, and enjoyed seeing each other again. I have to admit that my heart skipped a beat when he walked into the room – was it love or just a familiar and safe face? Maybe both. :)
In case you are curious, our fortune cookie said, “Your present plans are going to succeed.”
I’m sure it was a long night for him. He still had to go to the grocery store after visiting with me last night. Thanks Jas – I love you! And thank you Marissa for staying with the kids! I appreciate it!
