The house seems pretty quiet after Maggie had been laid to rest. Either she just snored that loud or she had more of a presence in the house than I realized. Something new for Steve is he now sleeps next to my bed in my bedroom. This is new because he would never sleep in my room unless it was thundering out or kids were still lighting fireworks outside. Steve likes to spend time with me out on the front porch while I catch up on emails. He also gets to pee on his new favorite tree out by the street. These were things that didn’t happen when Maggie was around. Could we have done these things when she was around, yes, but that wasn’t our life back then.
I believe we’re both still a little sad she’s not around but life goes on.
And life gives Steve a new tree to pee on
