“Janeen asked me if I wanted to go to California at the end of March for 6 days.  $379 round trip and stay with her sister! And then she also is going to Ireland in April and she’s going to Punta Cana in August. “

 “So you told her I’m a wife and a mother and cannot go, duh.”

I slowly unzipped my brown boots.  I dropped one over the side of the bed with a thud.

I grabbed the left boot by the heel and toe and pulled it off,  studied the stitching on the sole while letting my fingers run over the leather, and then threw the second off the side of the bed.

“No, actually that is not what I said.”   And then I got up and walked out of the room. 

It was a very large house with a very small bed.
