Things are beginning to get back to normal. (as normal as it can be) I am just afraid that he is going to start feeling even more comfortable with the drinking since Frank let it go the other night. It is really difficult because of my feelings for Sissie.
Shelby had a dr's appt this morning and according to the dr. the rate of the heartbeat (139 ) indicates that it will probably be a boy. We won't know for sure for 4 more weeks when she goes back for the ultrasound.
Frank is fighting a sinus infection. On antibiotics and feeling miserable.
Today's fun item is:
As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone, "Happy Birthday". I thought....well, that's marriage for you, but maybe the kids will remember. My kids came down for breakfast and didn't say a word.
So, when I left for the office, I was feeling pretty low and somewhat angry. As I walked into my office, my secretary Jane said, "Good morning, Boss, Happy Birthday". It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.
I worked until one o'clock and then Jane knocked on my door and said, "You know, it's such a beautiful day outside, and it's your birthday, let's go out to lunch, just you and me". I said, "Thanks, Jane, that's the greatest thing I've heard all day. Let's go".
We went to lunch. but we didn't go where we normally would go. We dined instead at a little place with a private table. We had two martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.
On the way back to the office Jane said, "You know, it's such a beautiful day....we don't need to go back to the office, do we?"
I responded, "I guess not. What do you have in mind?"
She said, "Let's go to my apartment".
After arriving at her apartment Jane turned to me and said, "Boss, if you don't mind, I'm going to step into the bedroom for a moment. I'll be right back."
"OK", I nervously replied.
She went into the bedroom and after a couple of minutes, she came out carrying a huge birthday cake......followed by my wife, kids and dozens of my friends and co-workers, all singing "Happy Birthday".
And I just sat there........
on the couch.......
