After a weekend of milestones including: celebrating his mom’s retirement,
aging to an adult, getting engaged, getting married and enjoying an
incredible wedding night with his new bride, Spencer is not surprised to
find that he is running late for his first day of work.
Although the Pratt family has a house keeper, the perfectionist in
Rena cannot stand the idea of leaving the bed unmade. Besides
that, she believes that everyone should clean up after themselves.
Rena has always been interested in music. In fact, her lifetime
wish is to someday become a Hit Movie Composer. She is thrilled
to see a grand piano in the Pratt’s sitting room.
Spencer doesn’t know how he is going to make it through the day.
He has to survive his first day of work on a few hours sleep.
He prays that a strong espresso will see him through the day. The
lively aroma alone gives him a brief burst of energy.
After drinking down his steaming hot espresso as quickly as he
could, scalding his lips and tongue in the process, Spencer runs to
make it to his car pool in time.
Candy wakes up feeling excited about what the next few months
will bring. Her son has married a woman that Candy is proud to
call daughter-in-law. Now she hopes to have a grandchild to dote
Spencer makes it halfway through the work day, before he is tapped out.
He feels lucky that his mother owns the company, because he cannot
make it another minute. He slips out shortly after his lunch period where
he found himself dosing off and drooling all over his lunch.
On top of that, he has a killer headache. Maybe his espresso was
a bit too strong.
Spencer’s head is still pounding when he finally gets home. He would love
to find Rena and give her a big kiss, because he’s missed not seeing her
today, but he fears that he would fall asleep before their lips even touched.
Candy has never felt so content and free. It’s like she’s beginning
to see herself for the very first time.
Rena still finds it hard to believe that she became engaged and
married all in the same day.
She has time on her hands, so she grabs the electric guitar and
practices on it. She feels fortunate to live in a house with so many
different ways to occupy her time.
Spencer’s brother Seneca comes home with Gwen to congratulate
his brother on his marriage. When he finds that Spencer is resting,
he returns home to complete his school work.
Candy, hearing the school bus pull up, quickly hops out of the hot
tub and puts on her clothes.
The thrill of almost being caught in the nude amuses her. She finds
that being a bit daring is fun.
Gwen arrives home thinking about getting a part-time job. She can either
work at the supermarket, the book store, the salon or the cemetery. The
only option that even remotely fits her personality is the cemetery. Gwen
goes upstairs to check the internet and see if there are any positions
Candy receives an invitation to a party at the home of Garret
Tubbs. Candy, still revelling at the thought of being daring, picks
out a dress that follows that theme.
Candy tries something new with her hair and picks a bold red for
her makeup. She’s ready to party.
The party does not begin for a few hours, so Candy has time to
take care of some business before she leaves for Garret’s party.
She calls up the accountants at her three investment properties to
see if her checks are available for pickup.
Candy arrives at the Doo Peas Tower to pick up her first check. Now that
she is seeing the tower through retired eyes, she just can’t understand why
she found it so important to put so much time and energy into her job. She
wishes she would have spent more time stopping and smelling the roses
during her youth.
Meanwhile, Spencer has gotten some much needed rest and gets
a opportunity to find out just how talented his new bride is…
…while Gwen sits in the hot tub looking forward to beginning her
first day of work as a Graveyard Clerk.
