Back Home

We arrived home again at 8:15 last night. All-in-all the Christmas visit had gone well. Kate seems to have enjoyed herself.

I spent about an hour checking email, unpacking and taking a shower before settling in to watch a Cowboys game on TV. I hadn’t seen Kate seen we got back and went to look for her. I found her in bed in the middle guest room working puzzles on her iPad. I asked if she were planning to come to bed. She said, “I thought you wanted me in here.” I may not have mentioned it before, but this is not the first time this has happened. This was the first time in a long time though.

On the trip home after a stop for lunch, Kate said, “I know I’ve said this before, but I am really excited about moving to Texas.” I said, “Yes, you have mentioned that before, and I know you are excited even though it will be a long time.” Neither of us said anything more. Jesse told me that she had mentioned moving to Texas in addition to the time she said something on a previous trip to Memphis. I moved behind Kate and shook my head to indicate this wasn’t so. They didn’t dispute or feed this conversation.

This morning was our monthly Y breakfast. I didn’t wake up until 7:06. I got up right away and reminded Kate. She initially said she wanted to go and got up to go to the bathroom. She came back into the bedroom and got in the bed. Then she told me to go on ahead without her which I did.

Sometime after getting home from the breakfast, I checked to see if she were up. She was. I noticed two pair of her black slacks thrown on my side of the bed. Then I found another pair on the floor beside the toilet in the middle bathroom. When I found her, she was wearing a pair of black slacks. I just hung up the slacks I found.
