This morning, I finally reached a point at which I was happy to be outside and taking a walk before going to work. Of course, the fact that it was sunny and warmish had a lot to do with that. Also of course, Charlie is going home this evening, and I will no longer have the motivation of doggie duty to get me out of bed and out of doors. So that was fleeting!
I had a very pleasant evening yesterday. Sharif was out of the house at band practice until late, so I got to clean the kitchen and do laundry and otherwise just hang out with the bird and the doggie. And I watched an episode of Mythbusters that brought me real joy. I must say that I quite enjoyed the sight of two grown men running and flailing their way through a rink covered in banana peels.
In less than a week, Sharif and I will have been together for 4 years. Go us!
