it was quiet. for one week. the house compressed to just me, the dog, the cat.
now they are back and my life feels full again.
i didn't realize just how much i missed them until they had their arms around me.
it made me not want to go to work this morning.
i wanted to lay in bed with them and soak them up.
within a half hour they had forsaken me for my grandparents and my aunt next door.
so easy to skip away from,
knowing she's always here to come back to.
that would be me
in my best form.
