It has been a very long day of not giving a fuck, of longing for J, but knowing her return will be nothing more than going upstairs to recover from working, and having a very good reason for not giving me the time of day.

I have a brisket in the slow cooker, her favorite, will sauté Brussels sprouts with carrots in olive oil and garlic, maybe a potato, but maybe not. Strawberries and whipped cream for dessert

We shall see what happens.
