It was a beautiful weekend here. Gorgeous blue skies. Still-green grass. Golden leaves. Lovely.
This morning it was rainy and windy – just enough to make me think about the end of the season.
After work, I went to the grocery store, and by the time I was headed home, it was almost dark.
And I got sad.
I got sad coming home to an empty house.
Sad coming home to no one.
Wondering if I’m always going to come home to an empty house.
I haven’t had a “woe is me” post for a while, and I don’t really need this one.
But I stupidly just can’t help it.
My new relationship is going really well. My job is going well. The future is looking positive and hopeful.
So why am I down?
I know this will pass.
I just wish it would hurry up and go.

The sound of cars on rain-slick streets
The cat sleeping in the crook of my knees
The compassion of my daughter
