Dear Diary December 16 – This Jersey City Petsit Always Puts Me in the Mood to Relax & Why are these relaxed mornings especially meaningful for us nomads?

By

How many mornings do I get to write that:

Spent an enjoyable early morning washing up dishes, as my husband slept off some late night coding, from yesterday night’s superb vegan kitchen-sink, vegetable laden vegan lasagna that our omnivore, used to fancy restaurants because he’s a trader that has to entertain clients regularly, friend could not compliment enough (and which I had for breakfast!), as he quickly finished one plate and went back for seconds,
