Sometimes, it's the little things that we need. Not just a bed, warmth, love, food. But the simplicity of a routine.
We sold our house and moved out last week. Didn't plan to. Listed the house on a whim. Sold it in eight days. SOLD. IT. IN. EIGHT. DAYS. Didn't have a Plan B.
We ultimately found a house that we love. One catch. We will have a gap in addresses of about 5 weeks. So for a few days, we lived in a hotel. Not wanting to tear up the dogs, we took them to our lovely dog sitter who they adore. One of the things I immediately missed was my coffee pot and my morning routine of making coffee with Jameson.
You see, I would get up every morning at 6, grind the beans. While waiting for the coffee to brew, I would fill up my Jameson's food and water while smelling the amazing aroma of coffee brewing.
In that 10 minute time, I would sit in the kitchen floor and give my dog so much love. It was a great routine. And one that I truly missed.
But this morning in our transitional digs, with the dogs back under our feet, the coffee smelled even better and I am sure that Jameson loved having his ears rubbed an extra bunch. And just like that, we fell back into our routine...
