See that expression on my face? I was on a cruise here and you can tell I was missing my email. Denise is on a cruise. A sad state of affairs that she left us to go spend a blissful week at sea with her husband. I mean, come on, why would she even want to do that? She won't get to cook or clean or work on kids' homework. Okay, maybe I could do without those too, but she's without her email buddies after telling us just a few days ago how important we are. Somehow I don't think Denise is feeling my pain.
I realized after she left that I am a creature of habit in the worst way. I fix my coffee at 9 am. My shower lasts eight minutes. I have oatmeal with flaxseed and blueberries in it every morning. But before all these things I check my email! Just knowing one of my chicks had flown the coop left me restless yesterday. I think I'm like a dog with a pack instinct. I'm the alpha dog and must make sure all my puppies are okay. And Denise is off frolicking in the sun without a care in the world. It doesn't matter to her that I woke up at 4 this morning and couldn't sleep. I know some would say it was the Mexican food I had for dinner, but I'm sure it was worry. She just might fun herself to death, you know? And I couldn't live with myself. I might just have to go break up that party. Protect her, you know? After all, what are friends for?
