It's been a pretty ruff week. It started off great with four little kitties that I spent all off my time with. I had fallen in love with them all. But then Tofu, the little runt, got really sick and she ended up passing away. I did not handle that well. Plus some crazy apartment shit that needed to be dealt with asap (things are ok now) and just an overall feeling of being an emotional basket case. And then the world. I think we are all feeling a little like, What the fuck world...What the fuck?. I just don't understand why there are people with so much hatred. It boggles my mind.
We were still taking care of the three kitties and I pretty much spent all of my time with them. I didn't want to give them up but I knew that I couldn't responsibly take 3 more cats into the house, it wouldn't have been fair to them.(I was so close to keeping them). A lot of people wanted to adopt them, but I talked to the Humane Society and it was best for them to go through them so that they could stay together for a while and get the medical and social attention that they needed before being adopted out to new homes. So the day came when we had to say goodbye and that was pretty heart wrenching.
So yeah, not the happiest week of my life, but it's life.
I am still feeling kinda blue, missing the kitties, feeling more then a little overwhelmed and confused about the world and the humans in it. Blah, but things will get better because good happens. Good over bad.
Today the mr and I are probably just going to do some house work and what not. Those gutters wont hang themselves.. We are taking the afternoon off tomorrow for a little eclipse viewing and nature therapy because we both need it.
Internet from the week.
-I picked up a book, The Age of Miracles, at one of the many tiny libraries in town without knowing really what it is about. Got home, started reading and whoa. t. It's about a young girl living through the slowing of the earth rotation and what the effects are. It has kinda of fucked with my head and has made me think about the up coming eclipse in a different way. Will The Eclipse Make Crops And Animals Flip Out? Scientists Ask (Really)
