For those of you who did not know this already, In addition to my current job as an Administrative Assistant, I recently began a second job a few nights a week working in a group home for people with developmental disabilities. This is something I did for a few years in Utah and loved, so I was excited to find this new job.

A couple days a week I work 6-3 at my first job and then go straight to the group home where I work 4-10. Yesterday was one of these days. In addition to my busy work schedule for the day, my back has been KILLING me the past few days. And on top of that, some other things popped up yesterday that helped to add unwelcome stress to a normally stress-free gal... therefore transforming me into a miserable, whining loser of a woman. My night job, as I knew from past experience, does well to help me forget any issues I may be having in my own life. It's just that kind of work. But I was exhausted yesterday.

After my 16 hour work day I headed back to my aunts to spend the night with my cousin & braid her hair. On my way I called B to say goodnight...No answer...hmmm...Very rarey does that happen. His son was at Grandmas for the night, so I figured B had fallen into a deep slumber already...Which is exactly what I was planning to do very soon.

Once I got to my aunts, I walked through the front door armed with Cheetos & soda and ready to braid. As I yelled out to my cousin "WHY IS THE DOOR UNLOCKED!?" ...my sweet B came around the corner. After I screamed from the shock of a man being there... I realized it was my man:) My man who planned with my cousin earlier that day to be there when I got there, parking
his car around the corner so I would not know he was inside. To surprise me with flowers on my stressful day. And hold me and give me a kiss that I desperately needed. It was so sweet and totally made my day, and all it's stresses melt away. I love you Brett!

Life is good.
