Day 484

Tuesday | June 25th, 2013


I did nothing today. Anything I wanted to do was thwarted hopelessly with preparing materials for TOEIC. I spent all day, okay all the waking parts of the day just working on TOEIC stuff. I don’t remember eating really, but I did make great use of the now functioning once again outside bathroom as it’s much faster to leave my room and go straight to it, pee, and return to do more work.

I let Twitchy in the room to sit with me. Days when I just work in my room forever are just like the days when I sleep forever. It all equates to Daddy gone in her mind. Being able to sit next to me while I work and watch the gate (top) gives her inner peace.

After the kill-Daddy incident, I haven’t given her as much, so being able to sit in my room again was a massive deal for her. This is why she looked like such a nice and good doggy. I even thought I’d take a break in the evening and take her for her first walk since the bike wreck (when I decided I’d never walk her again). But then it rained in the evening and she just sat there watching the gate anyway.

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
