Tempe Heat, Denver Cold

He left last Saturday for Tempe, AZ. That wasn't a great day for me, I'm woman enough to admit it.

I was a bit pissy, kind of off that day.

But as the week went along, I got better... why? I am not sure. Perhaps because I accepted it for what it was. A week to remember for him. Soon, the aches and pains he is feeling will be a fleeting memory. He will remember the good times, the laughs, and the hours in the hot tub. He will remember his desperation he felt in wanting to get home, and willingness to throw the game just to be out of the tournament. He will scoff at himself for being a wuss (I'd place money on him using this exact terminology!)

However, I did get selfish this morning. I put my foot down... it's cold in Colorado. I'm freezing my buttocks off.. I need someone to either freeze with me, or heat me up. I don't care, but I'm not going at this along. My closest friend I spend most of my time with is Brad. He's a skinny guy, even if he and I clung together, we would still be cold! If I have to... Brad's coming with me... we will freeze together! Either that or D gets his butt home!

I know.. I put my foot down, it was more a joke. I figured he would come home early anyhow, it's about all he talked about this week. It was just fun to have that bit of self-inflicted importance.

He will be home within 24 hours.

.....................Yep.. I am *THAT* good.
