Finally Have Another Human To Talk To
Very cold this morning when we got up. I ran over to Stater Brothers to pick up some ice cream. They always have the cheapest and the best variety. Keith and I both love ice cream so I buy the “churned” kind as it does not have as much cholesterol as regular ice cream. Took Hiker for a 1.5 mile walk and then ran over to Wal-Mart to be a “ShedZilla” hair trimmer for Hiker. I brush her, but she still sheds so much. I had heard about a tool called the Furminator at PetSmart but they cost about $50. Did some online research and found the ShedZilla at Wal-Mart for $20 and it does the exact same thing as the Furminator. Keith texted me just after 10:00 am that he was on his way. I've mentioned before that I was not looking forward to 2012 coming. It's hard to explain to someone who has not lost a spouse, but my friend DeDee who has been widowed 3 years now tells me she understands exactly what I'm saying. It makes me feel that when the new year comes and the year that Ben passed away is gone, the passing time pulls him away from me even more. Right now I can still hear his voice, I can still feel his touch, but I fear that as years pass, I won't be able to “feel and hear” these things anymore. As I typed this, the tears began to flow. Keith got her a little after 11:30 am and we went to lunch at Der Weinerschnitzel. I needed a new mini-blind in my computer room (where Keith sleeps) as the old one would not close good anymore, so he and I went over to Home Depot and got a new one and he assisted me in installing it. Very warm her today for winter. We went for a 2 mile walk with Hiker this afternoon.
