Yesterday was a fantastic day. Seriously, I don't think I could have enjoyed it more. Seeing my father was so very enjoyable for my girlfriend and me. He has always been very receptive to my girlfriends in the past, never one to disapprove, but I feel like he knows there is something special about this one. I can tell by the way he asks about her when we talk on the phone and the way he interacts with her that he loves her just as much as I do. That means a lot to me.
Lunch was fantastic and although I burned through several more points than I normally would at a single meal, I left myself with enough to have a salad in the evening and a few drinks later that night when a few of the guys hit up a pool hall. In addition to my friend's wife being on leave from overseas, another friend who works as a military contractor was back from the sandbox. It was fun to sit down with all my friends and just talk for a couple of hours.
The pool? Well, lets just say I'm a better shot once a get a couple drinks in me. The later the night went the better I played (although I never won, I ended up having two games where I had a nice run of shots, one of which culminated with a scratch on the 8-ball).
So here I am, just sitting around and reminiscing on what a nice day yesterday was, with the little lady napping on the couch and the dog doing the same on the floor. I can't help but think what a great place I am in my life right now.
