Yesterday, I got out of the house to run a few errands on my own. It was the first time that I have been by myself in a week, and at first, it felt really good to have some time to myself outside the house (even if I was going to the dreaded grocery store), but then as I was driving, I had the strangest feeling: loneliness.
It occured to me when The Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's song "Zero" came on the radio. I turned it up and thought, "Yeah, Norah, we like this song, don't we?" Only to suddenly realize that she was no longer inside me, and I was entirely by myself in the car.
I didn't expect to miss pregnancy, but in that moment, I did. Needless to say, I rushed through my last errand (picking up pics from Walgreens), and got home to Jerry, Norah, and Scooter as soon as I could.
