I’ve returned from my “Mama’s Me-Time Getaway.” It was wonderful. Meaningful conversations, exotic animals, southern fried food (ever tried “garlic knots”?), historical landmarks, a sandy beach, and OH THE SUNSHINE! All the pleasure of the four days was almost worth having Tisha move away. NOT REALLY. But we’re making the best of it.
Fortunately Miriam was only mad at me for about 20 minutes upon my arrival home. She refused to make eye-contact for a while, but then finally relented and melted my heart with an unsolicited kiss on my nose.
