Well, after today I am ready to go sit in one of those chairs in the picture above. However, the paperchase has thickened. I see a couple of reams of paper in my future!
The visit went well. Our SW is great and said she was looking forward to working with us. Rhea leaves in 2 weeks for Colorado, so I need to make sure a few things get completed before he leaves. First, we have a date! just he & I. We finally get a day away to be a couple. I have it all planned out. It is going to be a romantic excursion. Here are my plans:
First, we are going to take a drive into the city to visit the Sheriff’s Dept. We’ll request some papers and pay some money and then holding hands walk out to the parking lot, and talk about where we’ll eat lunch. First though, we need to make one more stop. Yes, the Social Security Office. I know you are jealous. Yes, Yes, we will take a number, enjoy the decor, and wait to be served. When our table, uh counter, is ready we will order off the SS menu. We want the his and her special please. However, the price doesn’t seem so special. Well, no time for dessert, our date has only just begun!
Next, Rhea whisks me off to the doctor’s office where we agree to get matching tattoos, uh TB tests. We pay our money there and drive on to our next date stop. You are super jealous now aren’t ya?
As we drive back to our side of town, we stop for a photo session. This is great b/c we don’t have a current professional photo of just the two of us. Oh, wait, you just want one of us at a time? That’s it, one picture? Oh that’s right, it’s only our Passport photos.
What a beautiful date we are having thus far. I am sorry it is coming to an end. The cell phone rings. It’s our eldest telling us the vet called and we can pick up the cats(who had to get updated vaccinations for the HS)from the vet on our way home. What a wonderful way to finish our date.
We pick up the cats and as we approach Starbucks, Rhea suggests we stop for some coffee. I have to pass as my physical is tomorrow and I want to be off caffeine.
We arrive at the house, let the cats out, and before collapsing in the family room we remember we must photograph it for the paperchase!
Thank you everyone for the support, e-mails, phone calls (you know who you are CA girl), and prayers. If you want the details on how you can have a date like mine, let me know. ha.
