I’m glad the week is over.
Losing Mocha early Wednesday morning was incredibly emotional.
I feel both physically and emotionally drained.
(Physically because I got so little sleep the night she got sick – emotionally because I sobbed nonstop after she died.)
I was busy most of yesterday, but when I came home to an empty house at the end of the day my heart ached.
Yesterday was the first full day in my life, since I was three years old, that I didn’t have a dog.
It’s really a huge life adjustment.
I appreciate the kind words and thoughts from so many of you.
It helps to have people reach out when you’re feeling sad.
I’ve got a busy day of appointments today.
I had cleared my schedule for two weeks post op, but I’m now headed back into reality.
The Southern California (extreme!) heat wave continues.
I didn’t go walking yesterday because I couldn’t bear the 100F temperature while wearing my “body armor” compression garment under my clothes.
I’ve heard temperatures should be at least a little bit cooler by Sunday.
I hope that’s the case.
I need to get back shooting.
It will be so much more pleasant if temps are in the 80’s vs. 100.
