musical monday: in a funk and out again (i hope)

For whatever reason, I have been in a deep, deep funk today. Pic and I spent the day in the same condo, but we didn't really spend any time together. I know that she needs much more than nearness from me, but I was on complete disconnect. I did manage to get a few things accomplished -- including making oatmeal with her this morning -- but it didn't seem to matter. Today is definitely one of those days where I have to remind myself that I'll (eventually) sleep and wake to a kind of new start tomorrow.

So, anyhow, tonight, after Cardo got home, we went to the pool for about forty-five minutes. We came home to clean up and dry off and then we set out again. We walked for about an hour. Although we brought the wagon along, Pic chose to walk part of the hour. She tucked her tiny hand in mine and we walked in the darkening evening. I started singing this song to her, because why not embrace cliche sometimes?

"The Beatles - I Want To Hold Your Hand"

Happy end of Monday. Here's to Tuesday!
