The van’s battery died while I was out running an errand. I had to text Mike to come rescue me and he did with Alice’s old car. And then I drove a loop around the freeway – to the hospital, to IKEA and then back home.
I let the dog sleep with me last night. She started the night snuggled next to me, salt and pepper hairs nestled next to golden hairs, both of us sighing the day away. And then we separated each to their own side. She got my regular side, I slept on Jeremy’s usual side – all my things out of reach in the early morning when I woke.
