She made it
After a long day, my wife made it to Providence and this morning got a flight to Nantucket. The storm Kyle caused flights to the island to be canceled until this morning. She met up with a friend from graduate school in Providence, and they got a hotel room together. The two of them are spending the week enjoying the New England weather (foggy and light rain from what I understand).
I enjoyed the salad and pizza and started a new book Pack of Two by Caroline Knapp. I got this book because I really liked her book Drinking: A Love Story. I also like this book but having had quite a few dogs, it seems that she is looking to substitute the dog for not having many human relationships. It's as if the dog has become everything to her. I can understand some of this because I prefer my dogs to most people. However, I do think that it's important to understand dog behavior and allow dogs to be....dogs.
But I have to admit that watching my dogs play last night made me feel good. And their happy dog play took away any lonely feelings that I had. And settling down in bed with one of the dogs on her bed next to mine made me feel comfortable.
Today is a good day and tonight is my home group meeting. I'm looking forward to seeing my friends there. Wishing a good Monday to each of you.
