Just checked in with my friend Across The Sound, and I'm all good to go visit ... with my dog! I'm so happy! Now I'm sure I won't sit here and mope. It would be nice if I could get some anti-anxiety meds for the dog, though, so I could make sure he wouldn't sit and mope long enough for me to run to the store.
Now, a quick breakfast and then I'm off to Everett for some thrift shopping.
