Why do I feel so sad today? Is it post drama depression syndrome from spending a week looking for a missing cat or the fact that my dad who has been living with me for the past 7 months, departed early this morning to return to sunny Phoenix?
I've been living on my own for so long that I didn't realize how nice it is to have another person around and today the place just feels so empty. I hate being the one who is left. Even as a kid when the cousins would come visit for the holidays, I always felt this intense melancholy the day they left.
I'll get over the feeling within the week I'm sure but today all I want to do is curl up, hide away from the world and not do much of anything.
