Day 2 of living with my new garbage can.
I still can’t bear to put anything in it. I just slide it in and out from under the sink. I carry all my garbage out in my hands.
This is actually not new for me. Liz got a beautiful new sweater. It was very expensive and I was surprised to see that she was wearing it over her pajamas.
“Why are you wearing it now? You should save it for “good”
“This is “good”
I realized then that whenever I get something new I wait to wear it even if it is a tee shirt. I wonder why I do that.
My nephews left at 5 this morning. I got up to say goodbye and have coffee with them. It’s great that I made such a connection with them in only a week even with the language barrier.
I’m really going to miss them. I actually had tears in my eyes when the elevator closed. I could barely see to take the towel off my Saint Francis statue and put my Pope magnets back on the refrigerator.
I know some people can’t understand why I did it but just realize how important it was to me to make the people I love feel comfortable in my house.
And they did the same for me. They totally accepted that I am a mental patient when it comes to my dog.
