A Day in Town

On Tuesday I rode the bus into town to take care of some errands. I had to go to the office of immigration and to the dentist. I knew ahead of time that I would be doing a lot of waiting; I stayed up late to finish the book I was reading so I could take the next on in the series with me. I didn't want to have to lug two gigantic books around town with me!

Everything went very smoothly. I walked in and out of immigration with no surprises! Hallelujah!!  I went to Pizza Hut for lunch - they have free internet and good specials. I even had enough time to walk over to the mall and pick up a few new movies, before I caught a cab to the dentist. I spent an hour in the dental chair...going to my happy place...and then scheduled another appointment to take care of my remaining cavities. :-( Then I headed over to the bus station for another few hours of waiting. I selected a shady spot on the curb and continued reading until the bus arrived. We left the terminal at 4pm and pulled up to my gate almost 2 hours later, just as it started to rain.

All-in-all, it was a great day, but there was one thing missing...my husband. Mark stayed back at the ranch to help the crew finish out the last week of work on the volunteer housing. I missed his jokes at lunch time, and his protective presence while running errands.

I am so blessed to have such a great husband. I am at a loss for words to describe him, but just know that he is really cool.
