The next morning at Mass our friends were a great comfort. Some had met my parents. Many are also neighbors and will miss seeing BoBo during his walks, too.
BoBo had had a good week, full of turkey, Burger King, long walks, a chance to 'threaten' the Bathfitter guy and a ride to Portage la Prairie.
We're slowly changing the schedule we've had for quite a few years.
Instead of taking the dog(s) for a walk individually, Paul and I are taking a walk together. We still need our exercise.
Life will be simpler, but we didn't think we'd become total empty nesters for another 7 years or so. We suddenly feel like we're in our mid 60s. Well, life is full of changes.
As they say, embrace the change.
We're slowly getting used to our new lifestyle.
Last Thursday we went to Gimli. For the first time in about 37 years we were able to walk on a beach together (dogs are usually not allowed). We were also able to browse in different places together instead of taking turns.
It's a whole new way of living.
It doesn't take much for us.
