So, even though part of the day didn't go exactly the way I'd wanted it to go, it still turned out to be a good and productive day and that to me is what matters in the end.
And, for anyone who's curious, the other part of my gift from Bruce was a sweatshirt featuring, proud and center, a logo from Corner Gas. It's going to be a great thing to wear on those days when I'm really super cold. I love it!!
