Hard to get back to the routine

I am back to a routine Monday today. Things seem different. There is an emptiness inside of me as I cope with Simi’s loss. Every few minutes, my thoughts wander back to Simi. I have found photographs on my phone of her that I don’t even remember taking. Binita too has some lovely shots of her. I stare at these and think of the good times.

I didn’t work out today. I just don’t feel like it. I played with Missy endlessly instead. In the evening, she kept going towards to doggie door as if Simi were outside just about to come in. Missy has never known life with Simi; it must be hard on her to be all alone.

We were planning to go to India in January, but I’m not sure if we want to leave Missy behind. We’ll see…
