My weight this morning? Up to 197. Highest. Nonpregnancy. Weight. Ever.
The stress is not over. It won’t be over till after I complete this ridiculous second-in-6-months-cross-country move. Back to the town we came from. You know, the one that was too boring for us back in August? Yep…same one, for now. That’s a place to land.
Today I had to put my cats down.
They were 15 years old…I’ve had them since they were 4 months old. They have both been showing their age…vomiting, incontinence, behavior problems. One of them kept attacking the other, as of late. I got them from off the streets of Chicago when they were kittens, and now, 15 years later I sat with them and stroked their heads while they died. I couldn’t put them through another cross-country move, so it was time.
Tomorrow we pack up a Relocube and then Thursday we get on a plane. Back to the cold and the snow. And maybe to some peace and quiet.
I do have part time work lined up…and it’s pretty flexible. Like, whenever I want to do it, and it’s not many hours per week. It won’t support us long term, but it’ll work in the short term. My priorities are this: Finding peace and calm for myself, taking care of my little girl, and finding peace and calm for myself. Oh wait. I said that already.
That’s all I want right now…to take care of what’s been neglected.
Bye, Billy and Nubbins. You were great friends.
