Sunday Afternoon Sadness
My nephew Matt just left to go back to Paramount, CA to his girlfriend's parents house. They will spend the night there and leave to head back to Paradise, CA tomorrow. I started to cry as he was ready to climb into his truck and leave. I'm so glad he stayed here last night after the memorial. After being with all of my friends and family yesterday, I would have felt very lonely last night if I had to face an empty house. It was nice to have his company. I could not get to sleep last night even thought Matt noticed I kept nodding off while he and I were sitting on the sofa watching TV around 10:00 to 11:00 pm. Went to bed at 11:00 pm and turned on the TV. Could not go to sleep so around midnight, I got up and took a sleeping pill. Went to sleep around 12:30 am. Woke up around 5:30 am, but dozed off and on until around 6:45 am, so I just got up. Matt got up a little bit later. We went over to the Placerita Nature Center. I wanted to show Matt some of the areas I hike. Left there and went up by Vasquez Rocks County Park and then back home. Stayed there for awhile then went to lunch at Weinerschnitzel. After lunch we drove around town. I drove him by a couple of my other hiking areas. Hoping that soon he will be able to come and stay with me a few days and he and I can do some hiking, maybe in the fall or spring when the weather is not so hot. Then we drove up by Castiac Lake and then home. He left a little after 4:00 pm. So now I face the empty house on a lonely Sunday evening/night. Need to decide what I am going to have for dinner in awhile.
