A Boy and His Dog. Hot Light. July 13, 2019
Today was a day. Up early, can never sleep before a big trip. I did my old trick, I listened to Parks and Rec on my phone. That always lulls me back to sleep. Not because it’s boring, but because I know all of the episodes by heart. Soothing. So, instead of getting out of bed at 6:00am, I got up at 7.
I did a lot of packing today, which was exactly what my nerves needed me to do. The boys are all packed. I am mostly packed. Toiletries still need to be packed. Also, my camera with all of my tech gear needs to get packed. So hard to travel light when you’re a photographer.
It’s just the boys and moi tonight. Aaron is at the Timbers match. I love never going to Timbers games, it is the best. The boys and I are going to get in my bed and rent a movie. Sunny is here now, lying near my legs. I always want my cats to be lap cats, but I remember when all I wanted was for Vashti to sit next to me, not on my. And now I miss her so much that I cry almost every time I think of her. I still want to rescue a Siamese. And I will. Believe it.
Tomorrow Mom and Kirk will come for bagel brunch. Then, we will need to pull this whole house together, get packed and get the fuck out of here!
