Today was a day off for me, and I took it. Not always easy for me to do. It's not that I work so hard (I really don't think I do) but my line of work involves a lot of "emotional labor." It can really weigh you down, drain you, suck the life out of you. Well, out of me, anyway.
So, some walks. There is a very large home, complete with very large gardens, in our small city. It's a really big house, and they invite tourists, for a small fee. So, I renewed my yearly pass (a dent in my budget) and went for part pf the day. Nice.
Lots of tourists, couples, etc. One couple looked as if they just might be family. And they were. I offered to take a picture of them together. They had just gotten married (in DC) and were on their honeymoon! After 28 years together, they were finally able to tie the knot in their city. It was really sweet!
They discovered some connections I have to the District of Columbia, and my "company." We played "do you know" and sure enough, they knew a few folk in my company in that area! Small world!
I'm still pondering my Tuesday evening experience, over-analyzing it, over-worrying. I'll get over it. But I hope I don't have to wait too long for another date. With him. Or anyone. I'm available, you know.
