I have learned there are a few things NOT to do when you are blue:
1) watch a moody movie (great movie, and just as good as the book! It didn't help my funky mood though)
2) look at your recent Amazon book reviews
3) try to install the wireless router AGAIN. (poor Paul worked so hard on it and it still won't work - arrugh!)
4) shave your dog (I did not do a very good job - poor Toby looks a little funny)
I think it's time for me to go to bed so I can wake up bright and cheery for the big interview tomorrow! After all tomorrow is another day!
Seeing that sweet picture of Maggie as a kitten made me cry all over again for you, Paul, Maggie and Toby and your loss. I swept up my fat sleepy kitties and put them in the chair with me to type this message, giving them kisses and sweet talk. One is older, around 12 now, with a noticeable heart murmur and a delicate constitution like Toby's, and a newly arthritic left shoulder. I try to imagine what things will be like when he's passed on to the great catnip fields in the sky. I'm selfish and can't bear the thought. My other, while young and robust is not smart, and often ploughs head first into one of our dressers, having gotten a running start 30ft. down the hallway. Every time we hear the thud, my hubby and I turn to eachother and say, "He's really not long for this world, is he?"
Cuddle your little babies and maybe do some affectionate silly collage of them to remind you of all the love they have to give and you to receive. :o) And, watch something silly like "Happy Gilmore". That's what I watched today and I could not stop laughing.
P.S. I'm glad I'm not the only one who wishes she'd done a better job grooming her dog.
things WILL get better
good luck today
Keep your chin up =)
