As my daughter prepares to fly out with her dad and grandparents on this Black Wednesday (that's what the airline people call it) I realize that I will miss her this year for the Thanksgiving holiday. I mean I knew I was going to miss her but saying bye this morning was more of a reality that I felt deep inside that I will not see her during this time, as she will be back on Monday. I have been in her life and her in mine for the last 5 years and seeing her grow up and come into age of a young teenage women is such a wonderful thing to be Thankful for this year!
She has her whole life ahead of her and it's nice to be a part of it and help in her grown process.
I went to court this morning for my 1st traffic citation, yes, I got another about 2 weeks after the first one. So I hired an attorney and went to court this morning where a really nice lady from the law firm named Patty spoke with me and informed me of my options. As I choose to wait it out, which was totally boring for 2 1/2 hours, Patty came back around and told me that the officer was going to dismiss the case but it would have to be reset for another court date, Sounds great to me and beats paying the $195 for 3 months probation. So next court date is April 30, 2007! WTF!... No hurry, huh?
As I get back to the office I see some patients, close out some files and then it's all quite for lunch. My Chinese fortune says "The smart thing is to prepare for the unexpected" Very true.
