Monday, after I dropped Kid off at school I went grocery shopping.
I was walking through Walmart, minding my own business when an older (60's) man drove up behind me in one of those motorized carts.
"I just wanted to tell you you're beautiful."
"Has anyone ever told you you're beautiful?"
Me: *Mouth Hanging Open* Uh, rarely.
About now I'm thinking that he must just be telling me this because he's one of those people that think everyone is beautiful, no matter what and that they should all be told.
"Well, you are. You're one of the most beautiful ladies I've seen around here."
After he said that my previous theory didn't really hold. So there I was with my mouth hanging open. Then, it occurred to me that he drove up from behind me. So I said (And now that I think about it, it probably sounded sort of cocky but I promise I didn't intend for it to sound that way.) "You got that from the back of my head?"
Then he explained that he saw me in the other aisle and made it a point to drive around and tell me.
Now, I was standing in the middle of Walmart crying. Then, I was trying to laugh to cover up the crying. Haha. It was ridiculous. I'm so glad no one else was in that aisle. lol
He quickly assured me that he hadn't intend to embarrass me, he just wanted to tell me. He asked if I lived here. I said yes. Then, being who I am, I had to add that I didn't live in Walmart but I did live in town. He got a kick out of that and asked if I was from here originally. I told him no, I was from PA. He said he noticed I didn't have a "twang" when I spoke. Haha (Thank goodness!! lol)
He asked me if I was married and I told him yes. He told me I should go home and tell my Husband that I'm beautiful and if he didn't see that there were others who would. Haha.
It was such a strange experience, but I have to be honest, it was nice. Also, he wasn't hitting on me or anything like that he was just trying to be nice.
I didn't cry at all. Of course, J and my Mother-in-Law were also in the car so I didn't want to cry in front of them. Haha. I held it together.
After I dropped him off I came home, made a shopping list and went to Walmart. Alone. As I wandered through the isles of Walmart, in the middle of the morning, Alone, I began to think. Think about my BABY off at school. Think about how he wouldn't be home with me during the day all the time anymore. I missed him.
I started to feel some anxiety and also a little panicky. I had to slow down and take some deep breaths. A panic attack in the middle of Walmart, not really what I needed.
I managed to make it through just fine though. I came home and made Kid a cake. Green inside and out. Green is his Favorite color! I had intended to make it in the shape of a crayon but I ran out of time.
He had a blast! The first thing he said to me when I picked him up was "I painted!" :)
I heard all about the rest of the day. Kids and playing outside, swinging on the swings, eating lunch, Ms. Hanna (Teacher), painting, reading books. I'm so glad he had a great time!
Now, we just have to do this for nine more months! I'll be used to getting up early by then, right?
