It’s been a weird 24 hours. I felt myself getting sick yesterday morning. One of those feelings where your entire body starts to ache and your stomach and head just feel like they’re slowly shrinking in on themselves. I went to Boston’s for dinner with my mom and my brother in the evening and literally couldn’t put away more than a single bite of pizza. Came home and crashed immediately. Fell asleep at about 7:15 pm and got up this morning at about 9:45 am. It wasn’t uninterupted sleep though since Trammell’s been sick too. I was up with him for half-hour blocks a couple times so he could go eat grass and throw up outside. The sleep helped though. I got my appetite back somewhere in the night and gobbled down leftover pizza whenever I let the dogs out. This morning (after eating still more pizza for breakfast) things came full circle when I had one of those peaceful “everything’s right with the world” moments. I was sitting at my computer listening to Tranconfiguration off of Seven Swans when Taylor came in the room and sat next to me. Trammell folllowed her in and spent the next minute licking Taylor’s ear while she cocked her head and stared up at me. I guess it’s hard to explain. Although I suppose it’s tough not to have a peaceful, enlightened moment while listening to that song.
