I had hoped to sleep in today. But Essie had me up at 7:30am because she needed to go outside. She was out there for around 15 minutes. Long enough for me to wake and not be able to fall back asleep. So here we are. Stella has come out here with me. I have covered her up on the couch with a blanket. Essie is in and out of the bedroom.
Yesterday was a roller coaster of a day! To start with I was offered a promotion which I accepted. I am one of the night managers now. I do get a raise and that will start on next paycheck. I am excited but there is a voice in my head that is asking if carrying keys again is really what I should be doing. But there it is. I am excited to try and do this.
The second big hit yesterday was that I saw Moose. Yes, my baby boy that dies in January. A truck pulled into the gas station that had a dog that looked exactly like my boy. When the gentleman came to pay at the window I handed him some treats and asked him to give them to his dog as well as giving him some love from me. I explained about Moose. He gave his sympathies and thanked me. I went on to another customer at the counter. When I turned around his wife was at the window…. with the dog. She looked at me and said, ‘He wanted to come say Hi” as she patted the sill for him to put his paws on there. So I got kisses and I got to love on my Moosie. I am crying as I type this. I miss him so so much….
The third to happen yesterday was physical therapy. I got there and I wasn’t on the schedule. Yep. Apparently the gal that I talked to forgot to put me in the system when I called on FRIDAY to change my Monday appointment to Wednesday. And no one was available. So. Instead of recooping today I will have PT at 10:15am and then come home and take care of the household stuff. I have my little list going. So far there are seven things on it. There are the simple things like laundry, dishes, watering the plants, filling the bird feeder… then there is vacuuming (I gotta move a lot of things around), cleaning the mouse cage (both tanks I use in the process are heavy and awkward) and finally writing the critique for the novel I am beta reading.
I should probably get this wrapped up before it gets too long. I also need to get some photos downloaded. I want to thank everyone for their comments and advice over the past several posts. I really appreciate it! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
