One year later

Filed under: Life in General, Friends — Mike @ 10:09 pm

It is hard to believe that on Wednesday, Buddy will have been gone a full year. I may not think of him all the time, but he made his mark on me. It took me months before I threw out his pillow, and probably still have a stray toy hidden under the couch or in the corner of the basement. I still have dog treats in the cabinet.

I miss Buddy and the order that he brought my life. At the time, I may not have enjoyed all of the late night walks or cleaning up the messes, but he kept me on a schedule. After his passing, I didn’t have to worry about going straight home after work or have an excuse for not being able to leave for the weekend. I gained some freedom of my schedule.

I am not ready to go back to having a dog. It isn’t easy living alone and taking care of a dog. The timer on my watch was always set to remind me how long it had been since Buddy’s last walk. Every plan I made included some thought about Buddy and when I would be able to get home.

Sending the wrong message…

I knew a new pizza place was going to open soon, at least that is what the sign on the side of the building said.

Buy one get one…

There is nothing I hate more than a real “buy one get one”┬ásale. In the past, some stores would advertise “buy one get one free” or “buy one get one half off” sale, but give you the savings even if you didn’t get the second one. So, if you bought only one item from the “buy one get one free” sale, you would pay half price on that one.

I have been catching up on watching the programs recorded on my DVR. Lately, that means watching the past few episodes of Flash Forward.
