Lion is still trying to get over his cough. He was napping just before we left for my work picnic. He said I shouldn’t have let him sleep. Obviously he needed it and he was only out for less than an hour. I didn’t think it would interfere with his sleep at night. It didn’t.
When we got home from the picnic, we were both not feeling well. We’ve had this stomach thing too. It’s fine until we eat something and then it’s anyone’s guess if things will stay settled. It doesn’t matter if it’s bland food or not. Needless to say, we didn’t play last night either.
I feel bad. I mean there’s nothing either one of us can do if we don’t feel well, but I don’t want us to lose the ground we’ve covered. There’s no signs of that happening so far. I’m just looking forward to a time that we both feel well enough to resume normal activities. We still hold hands. Last night as we were each dealing with our demons, we were touching.
When Lion goes on his next business trip he will miss our anniversary. He feels bad about it. I feel bad that we’ll be apart for a week, but our anniversary is just one day out of the year. I think every day with Lion is special no matter what day it is. We’ll celebrate our anniversary before he leaves or even when he gets back. It doesn’t have to be on that exact day.
I could say I’m hoping we’ll play tonight. I’m actually just hoping Lion feels better soon. I think he’s in the home stretch. His cough does seem to be lessening. Play can take a back seat for a while longer. I know we’ll get back to it sooner or later. It’s too important not to.
