I took the day off.
I did go to work, but the minute I got there, I knew I didn’t want to stay, so I called in sick from the sidewalk and then wandered off. Suki was not happy about staying in her carrier.
The city was dreary today. It’s overcast and chilly, but I walked for blocks, looking in the store windows but not noticing anything. Why the hell was I seeing Christmas stuff already? It’s not even Halloween yet.
The thought of Christmas depressed me. I hate that holiday anyway, but this year, I didn’t even know where I’d be. Here or in WI?
I took the train home, let Suki out, kicked off my shoes, and crawled into bed, pulling the covers over my head. I decided to stay there until JJ came home.
I didn’t even want to think about it.
