"And now he's gone."
How am I doing since Crocodile moved? Part wistful and a little sad, part relieved, not too many really strong emotions at this point. Except when Rhinoceros says things like that.
He and Dinosaur will be okay. We will walk them through it. They aren't acting too out of character. But they're sad, and then I get sad.
Time to plan some things to look forward to before this becomes a rut. Time to do some special things with Rhinoceros and Dinosaur. Time to listen to the pain and sadness, feel it myself, and then move forward again.
