A better night last night, I slept as well as I ever can. It's amazing how much a little sleep can help, eh?
The Daytona 500 today. YES! And the racing season begins...Oh how I love my NASCAR.
The most adorable baby was in the dealership with his parents yesterday. I knew this was bound to happen, and I was NOT looking forward to it. I was surprised at all the feelings I had, because my concern was of course, for Janelle, as she was working the F and I office for me yesterday. He was the kind of baby that you can't help but fall in love with, all smiles and eyes. When I saw him, my heart leapt into my throat and all the emotions of the past weeks came crushing in on me. I had to go to the back to cry - and I was surprised at the strength of my own feelings. Of course, it was only worse for Janelle, although I have to admit she managed to make it through all the paperwork of selling the young family the car before she came to me to cry. It was a necessary moment for the both of us, and frankly - if it had to happen, I am glad it happened with that kind of "I can't help but love you baby" and not with a "please do something to shut that kid up" kind of baby, although that might have been easier to handle, because when you want to drop kick a baby's parents then you aren't focusing on sadness. So anyway, that showdown is now over, and we both made it. That prompted a little conversation, and I am proud of my daughter for getting better. She still cries, at times she doesn't even know she is going to, but it comes and goes quickly, and then she returns to the reality of all of it, and knows that someday....SOMEDAY.
Have a really good Sunday. If you aren't snowed in where you are, think of me when you leave your house today. Keep smiling. :)
