3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It may be that five years of debt-free living is coming to an end as we pay out for Son's audition fees and expenses as he bids to get into a Conservatoire for September 2014 - there was never any question that we wouldn't do so of course. Sacrificing for your child is automatic and instinctive to loving parents.
Son's impromptu sleepover with a friend tonight will be good for him - and Missus, who is looking forward to the conjugal opportunity offered. I was slightly disturbed by a "failure to launch" solo yesterday morning, but early afternoon, despite being sleepy, proved successful. I have been pondering these two occasions, and can only come up with that the fact that I had a full stomach on the latter occasion. Therefore, to maximise the likelihood of a satisfying experience for Missus tonight, as well as the magic blue tablet, I will be suitably fed, hydrated and "warmed up" in advance.
