I just couldn't do it.
And, once again, I had to say no.
I seem to be experiencing this more and more.
It is Cherry Blossom time in Washington, DC and it is our tradition to take the kids downtown every year to see them. There is a small time frame to see them in full bloom each year so this isn't a trip we could put off until I feel better.
I am not sad actually, just really frustrated that I wanted to go, my family wanted me to go and I had to beg off.

Very cold and overcast day
Today is a beautiful, sunshiney day with temperatures in the 70's, and here I sit. Same place. With the dogs. Pooldad and Wallene left a few hours ago to see the blossoms. It feels as tho' they are off at school and work. Seems like any other day of the week. [yawn]
Don't get me wrong - there are a lot of bonuses in this scenario - I am lucky to have Pooldad, who loves his kids and spending time with them, even when I can't - I will be getting amazing pictures and funny stories from him and Wallene when they arrive home - our girl gets to do something she loves! going to Washington, DC! - the weather is gorgeous and I can enjoy it from here. Heck, I have internet, cable and phone too! The list could be endless.
It's easy to count the blessings Tadpoles and I do try.
It's just life's little disappointments that I am finding hard to take.
[And dangit - I want my DC street cart hot dog. Then again, I always want a street cart hot dog.]
:D Hope you all are having a beautiful Sunday.
I think I need to go text Pooldad and ask him to bring me that hot dog. hee
