Yesterday I was at a very, VERY low ebb. I was feeling sad and lonely all day. I was seriously missing fanboy_of_zeus
, who'd been busy Friday and Saturday with preparations for her birthday dinner last night plus feeling isolated because all my friends are elsewhere in the world. And Travis, dear, sweet Travis, needs to sleep SOMETIMES and on his schedule that usually means he's asleep when I'm awake and vice versa, with some overlap in between.
So I was alone and feeling pretty worthless to boot. When he woke, I almost didn't want to let Travis go. And when Damian was free after her party, we were able to video chat for a little while. If I can't be with her in Boston, at least we have Skype to help us connect face to face. So I was feeling a bit better.
After dinner we walked up to Rite-Aid so I could look at canes. I've been having a lot of heel pain lately and sometimes it's hard to walk. And because I'm so often limping because of the heel pain in my left foot, my left knee has started to act up again. Whee. So, a cane. It might help a bit. Makes me feel an old fool for letting myself get into this state, but what can I do? While we were at the store, we saw cake mix on sale and thought it would be a nice treat, but there was a huge queue at the register (and only one checker), so we decided to leave it, and walked back home.
I thought nothing more of cake and went to sleep. This morning after I woke, Travis surprised me with a cake he'd baked from scratch! It's a layer cake, too, with homemade chocolate buttercream frosting! <3 He made a Mexican Chocolate cake, and it's very yummy. If you'd like to make it too, click here for the recipe
. I highly recommend it. I'm tempted to go have another piece now, but I should probably eat something more substantial. :)
It was so sweet and thoughtful! <3 I love him so much!
