"Helloooo? Anyone there? Have you forgotten me?" This is what I heard when I got up this morning. I opened the dining room curtain and this is what I saw. Errabundus S. Bus was peering through the window. "I've been rather lonely" she admitted. "Sorry Skoolie"(our pet name for her) I whispered "The boys went hunting, and I had loads of nothing to do while they were gone. You know, a laundry mountain to whittle away at, football to watch, organizing, deep cleaning all while NOT preparing meals three times a day. Whatever was in the fridge is what we ate.....all weekend! You know....nothing." If she could given me a thumbs up, she would have. I just know it. It's funny how just not having to prepare meals and having two less people to attend to makes one feel a little like they're on vacation. I assured her she'd have a floor by the end of next weekend, the salvage yard will receive a visit to retrieve the swivel mechanisms and maybe we can find more seats. I closed the curtain certain she felt less lonely.
