J totally surprised me this afternoon, and made me really happy :)
We were supposed to go to a picnic and fishing tournament for his office; most of the guys in his group are newer hires, only a few are married and I doubt there are any other kids besides JJ...so not really a lot of fun for me at the playground by myself. The picnic was cancelled because the river is high and the current is too swift for good fishing (or something like that). J called to tell me that and I was disappointed because his other option for the day was to go golfing with one of his friends, and then to a cook out. Here's the convo we had:
J: The picnic is canceled.
AR: So you're abandoning us for the day? :(
J: I thought we could go to the zoo.
:) :) :) :) :) :)
So tomorrow we are headed to the zoo, and J has earned himself some bonus points :)
