Pampering Dianne

Roger here.... I am actually having fun pampering Dianne when she gets home from work. It makes us both smile, and at least I am doing something to help Dianne as she brings home a little bit of the cash that will help us pay expenses for the rest of the year. I thought it would be fun to document the new daily "welcome home" routine.

The process begins during each afternoon with the preparation of supper, snacks, and a hot epsom salt foot bath (hot water added every day at 4:40 p.m.)

When Dianne arrives at around 4:45 p.m. I greet her at the door with a glass of wine. Followed by a few short steps to the foot bath. Jasper usually nuzzles Dianne at this point while Charlie the Cat determines that the foot bath water is not drinkable. Snacks are then served, humus today, (Dianne here: Ha!! I pointed out to Roger that I would NOT eat humus, but I love hummus!! That's what happens when your proofreader is at work....) followed by pillow fluffing and then dinner.

We need to eat early because we only have about an hour to watch any of our recorded TV programs (Friday Night Lights, Survivor, The Amazing Race, Grey's Anatomy, Saturday Night Live, Two and a Half Men, 30 Rock, The Office, and any Purdue or Colts games) before Dianne reads in bed for a half hour and dozes off at 7:30 p.m. She gets up every morning at 3:30 a.m. to get ready for work. A side note... Dianne does not actually watch the Purdue and Colts games, but she will watch the last two minutes if they win.

Speaking of Colts games, after Peyton and Company pulled off that amazing finish last Sunday, I dug out our Colts banner from one of the bays. We don't have one of those outdoor flag holders so I figured out a way to display it through the front windshield. It is back lit with one of the adjustable motorhome lights. It looks pretty cool from the street.

Roger, I am worried, very worried, after reading this post. I foresee a major problem with this routine. Diane is never going to quit working because she has become a Pampered Princess and you'll never get on the road to begin your travels! But, wait, maybe it is Roger who is enjoying this the most - not going to work, probably sitting around all day with his feet soaking, watching soap operas and Oprah, and sipping wine! Loved the post and photos!
