It's been 5 days since I last washed laundry - I still don't have a full washer load. Leftovers from two meals cooked before my family left and one take-out meal have fed me all week. Although I drink a large glass of milk with breakfast every morning, I still have more than 1/2 a gallon.
It has been snowing, off & on, for the past three days. It is beautiful outside. Everything I view is like looking at a winter scene on a Christmas card - gorgeous. (no photos - OG took our camera on vacation)
Since EJ's been gone, I've been in charge of training his puppy, Piper. She is beginning to catch on. She comes when I call her name. It also seems she is beginning to understand the word, "outside". I hope EJ is consistent when he returns home so Piper continues on this positive trend. It is obvious she, and Sam our older dog, miss OG and him.
My day was another excessively lazy one. Do I feel guilty? Not at all. All the chores are done and the house is clean. Since I'm the only one here, it stays that way. I have come to realize that I need the rest. I anticipated having trouble sleeping at night due to a significantly slower pace of life and much less work. On the contrary, I've slept very well at night even with a little catnap during the day. A sure sign of exhaustion.
Speaking of sleep, I'm going to turn in. Praying you all sleep well this evening.
