Spousal Unit Leader and Primary Replicatant are gone to Disneyland et al.
California there they go!
And here I stay.
It’s a wonderful treat from Grandma = she wanted to gift her grandkids and her kids something forever memorable.
Not enough room for me, though. She felt horrible about it – but it was financially crippling. (6 can stay in one place, 7 cause x 2 places… and waaaay over budget). I stayed home.
It is a sense of freedom for me – no one to pull my time one way or another- I’m spending it rebuilding our home computer network and servers (….ya live a techy, ya die a techy)… and, POKER!
But me and the dog – silence echos between these walls – deafening …
I find it amazing how these “funny people” I live with fill in all the spaces in my life – you don’t quite fully notice them when they are here – but all that empty space where they once were… are noticeable when they don’t fill them.
As they say, the silence is deafening.
It’s not even one day (out of 8 ) and the echos of their vacancy are too loud already.
It’s going to be a very long 8 days for the dog and I….
