Oops - I missed a day again.
Let's just say I took a day off to grieve for Pumpkin. It's hard to say who misses him more, me or Shadow!
I am thankful for texting. It is fast and convenient (and often rude, but I guess that's the trade-off). I love being able to send a quick message when I don't have time (or the inclination) to have a phone conversation. It's so great to instantly show a picture of something to my mother who lives two thousand miles away. Yesterday when I had a sick boy at home, it was very easy and helpful to be able to communicate with K's teacher regarding her afternoon transportation, without having to wait for email or go through the office. And last night when I needed a pick-me-up, some late night texts from a good friend helped cheer me when I was down.
