I was gone for so long. A whole week without my friend. I missed him a lot… but it I had an amazing time.

Off to DC for a whirlwind couple of days. AmeriCorps National AIDS Fund End-of-Service. Good time. Good people. Exhausting. I gave a speech and was able to effectively pare down my year to 5 minutes. We had a graduation of sorts and then took to the streets of DC.

Next, off to Baltimore for a few days. Stayed in a very familiar place. I love that city. No phone, no plans. I saw some old friends, investigated some new places, and had a blast. Went down the Potomac in a leaking tube. True story.

Then back to Tulsa for 24 hours. Down to my hometown with no air conditioning and a smelly dog. Dropped him off to be neutered, hung out with my sister, went to a concert. I understand now why it was so important for me to get out of that town.

And finally home last night. Had a great dinner and then to bed by 8pm. I couldn’t even lie about it.

You know, I had some reservations regarding my dog. I mean… who am I to abandon him for a week, whisk him off to a foreign place to remove body parts, and then make him ride in an AC-free car on the hottest day of the summer? I’m a terrible dog momma. I could understand if he hated me for a little while. Give me the silent treatment or something…

But this is how we slept through the morning. Good, happy, puppy sleep.

  1. Pets are the essence of forgiveness. I’m not sure they “get it”. It matters not. They love us with unreserved tenacity. My mother had a cat for several years. She died with cancer. He stopped eating and died shortly thereafter.

      I agree completely. I feel so lucky to have my boys. They always seem to make the room feel a little brighter.
