A gorgeous summer day….

Today was one of those beautiful summer days. It was not too hot. It was not too humid. The sun was bright with no clouds. It was the perfect convertible day!

So we went out today. Mostly it was for errands, but Mark managed to make it into a nice… and fun day! We went to the post office to pick up a letter that had postage due. Just a postcard notification from the RWJ Transplant Center letting us know of their new location. Mark actually knew that they had moved.

Then we went to the Mailbox to pick up the business mail. Nothing too exciting. I did get a check from a client, but it is certainly nothing to write home about! The rest of the mail was just the usual junk advertising!

After that, we went to Dunkin’ Donuts for iced coffee…. and brunch. I had a veggie egg white flat bread sandwich. Mark had a sausage, egg, and cheese on a Croissant. Both of us had a glazed donut!! Yum!! Then Mark got a surge of energy which is rare for him. He wanted to take a walk along the waterfront and then out to the jetty. It was so pretty and relaxing. We just stood out there and we talked for a while. It was good to do something different. It may not have been a day at the beach or a cruise to Bermuda, but I am happy to take the little gifts in my life.

After we left the waterfront, we went to finish up our errands. We went to BJs and stopped at KFC for tonight’s dinner. We just got home a little while ago…. i am a bit sleepy, so if he should suggest a nap, I would not complain!!

It’s nice when Mark feels “pretty good”. It means that he will be funny. It means that he will be in a good mood! And it means that we can enjoy our life together… with whatever it is that we decide to do. The good days have been rare lately.

It does make me sad that our plans are on hold. Now that Mark is at the “good end of the salary guide”, we had such great plans.

Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.

John Lennon – “Beautiful Boy”

And how true that quote is, huh? The plans are on hold right now. No boat. No vacations. All of it. Pretty much we take things one day at a time….. in the hopes of a successful kidney transplant…..
