August 31: Day Two

August 31: Day Two

I managed a little sleep. Really, I wish I could just stay asleep – it doesn’t hurt there. An empty day stretching out ahead of me. What do I do with it?

Day 1 and another sobbing fit.

We got out of the house for most of the day. Went to a quiet place and walked around, tried to distract myself by taking a couple of flower photos, then drove to a favorite restaurant and had dinner. Unfortunately, we eventually had to come home. Reality came back then – nobody here to meet me, just a silent, empty house. I miss my dog.
