Day 145

A bit odd sort of feeling today. With yesterday’s life changer (the fifth one in less than a year), I found I had a lot to say but couldn’t put it into words. I faired better on the phone with some family members and in the end that helped to compress all the experiences of late into something more swallowable.

We treated the dogs to a long walk across the river and hefty doses of freedom. Meow and I talked about what our lives will be like when the dogs have run around space in our future courtyard, the reality of only walking them on the weekends when we have more time (instead of dragging ourselves out, often in the dead night, because of the responsibility having them has put upon us). Of course we talked about our house, too.

But still, it was a quiet sort of day where I didn’t have much to say. There was just so much to digest.
