We’re In

I made it.  I’m actually sitting here at my new, old desk feeling rather good.  It’s over.  There’s something to be said for the end of hysterical anticipation.

When I left for the last time on Saturday, I stood for a moment in the doorway.  I said a prayer of thanks for the comfort those old, broken-down walls gave me for so many years.

I swear I heard them sigh.

Before me and my rolling suitcase went down those stairs for the last time, I put Tallulah, the bishon’s, key beneath her door with a note of gratitude.  She came into my life on the heels of my heartbreak over Carmela, and truly, saw me through.

She and her parents will also be moving out, to Connecticut, March 1st.  Reminds me that some people, four-legged or otherwise, are not meant to be in your life for very long.

Tallulah was a furry comet loving me till I could once again love myself always feeling somehow I let my beloved basset hound down.

Of course now we know that was a myth, hearing how happy she is.  But we’re hard on ourselves, especially when we’re already hurting.  Why is that?  One of life’s mysteries to be sure.

I want to thank everyone who gave me such love and support during this life-changing event.   It was one of the hardest things I ever had to do, and because of you and your gentle vigilance, never once felt alone.

About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Amazon.com. Thanks.

  9. Oh my word!! I have been off in my own little world way too long! I need to go back and catch up with you. Hope you are okay, and am glad you are getting settled. Thinking of you, which I do daily, just haven’t been in touch. DAF

  10. I’m glad to hear you’re in. It must be a relief after all the months of packing and getting ready. Enjoy your new desk. I’d love to have one like that. May you do lots of wonderful writing at it.
