Lots of good-byes this week . . . yesterday I said good-bye to Caitlin, Logen, and Shirley over Mallard’s raspberry chocolate chunk and chocolate chai spice ice cream. I’m convinced that good-byes are easier when accompanied with good ice cream. Later today I’ll say good-bye to my trusty 1992 Toyota Camry. Maybe I should indulge in more ice cream to ease the pinch as the Camry drives away. And so, this week of good-byes continues. It’s bittersweet — and surprisingly exhausting. I think I’ll join Katten . . . she has the right idea!
