Week One Without Buddy

It’s been very rough. I’ve been going through the motions, although I have to say, going through the motions helps even if I don’t get any pleasure from them.

For instance, I’ve been swimming a couple of times. I haven’t been able to work myself up to swimming as much as I normally would, but when I swim, even though I don’t enjoy it, I feel less devastated afterwards. The endorphins are doing their job in a different way. Instead of bringing joy, they lessen the pain.

Finney seems fine. He’s getting more attention and of course he’s happy about that. I guess he’s always been waiting to become the king of the desk. Oh that doctor thing is just for a standard yearly checkup. I’m fine!

  1. Keep going through “those motions”. There’s a huge hole in your heart to repair. Love that seductive picture of Finney today…looks as if he might be ready to assume some of Buddy’s duties though. Be sure to keep some tasty books around. Thinking of you.
