I got home only a few minutes ago from a day of sailing. It was a nice day with a good breeze, but I am tired after being on the water. I decided to catch up on my journal after taking a much needed shower. I like to write about what happens at a more personal level than what I write about on my blog. It's something that I have been doing for years and have found particularly helpful in my recovery.
Anyway, I was going to write about the great sail, the fabulous spaghetti dinner that I fixed last night, the book that I am reading, the long walk on the beach this morning. But as I sat down on the couch to begin, I saw an Apple box sitting there. In it was the new iPad. And it was a gift from C. for my retirement. I heard her laugh with glee as I found the box and then walked over and asked innocently "What's this?". She takes great delight in getting me those things that I would not get for myself. She has a great knack for these surprises.
I'm going to go snuggle next to C. and let her know that once again she got me good. And she has me for good as well. Good night all.
