Nancy Johnson can’t find the kind of curtains she wants for Robert Redford’s bedroom. She’s been working on the decoration of his house for over five months now, and despite die problem with the curtains, she’s never felt better in her life. She works non-stop from Wednesday through Sunday in Aspen, studying the house, drawing designs, calling her client, Mr. Redford, and dealing with all kinds of suppliers of materials and furniture. Lately she’s been seeing Robert Redford more often. He’s not involved right now in the filming of a movie and he has a bit more time to fly out to Colorado to supervise the progress on the house. This week, she hasn’t gone back as usual to Nebraska because Robert is there to help her choose the right colors for his bedroom. Phillip sounded a bit irritated on the phone when she told him she would be staying in Aspen, but as always, he thought about all the money they were earning on the project and decided it was worth it. Nancy didn’t really care about the money. She was having the time of her life. Last night, Robert invited her out to dinner in Aspen and they talked for at least two hours about their lives. At the end of the dinner, he told her he wasn’t convinced about the color of the curtains she had installed in his bedroom and they went back to look at them. When Nancy returned to her apartment at 2:00 in the morning, there was a message from Phillip. He sounded somewhat sad on the phone. He said it was 1:00 o’clock in the morning and that he was wondering where she was. She thought about Phillip for a few seconds and then wondered how the kids were getting along at school. She decided it would be better to call him the next morning than to wake him up now. Then she remembered that she had an appointment in the morning at 9:00 o’clock with a carpet supplier. She thought she had better go to bed and get some sleep. However, she knew she wouldn’t be able to go to sleep. She was feeling too excited.
