Do you like them?
I sometimes do. It’s like a fresh start to the week and to start over again.
Today was slow to go though. I had a great weekend and woke up feeling blue, knowing that my sister and my niece were heading home. It made me sad to watch her car drive away, wishing that we lived closer to each other. I wanted to jump in the front seat, right next to her and go with her wherever she went. That didn’t happen. Instead, I wiped the tears away and went inside to clean. That’s what I do when I’m sad or mad. It feels like it gives me a little control over my situation when my emotions are out of whack.
I also had anxiety because our kitten had to have surgery today and I was worried about her all day. We learned she’s basically a freak of nature, and that when she was spayed, they didn’t quite get everything out which is very rare. She’s been acting like she’s in heat, which is no fun either. They had to go and do exploratory surgery to find the extra ovarian tissue. Poor baby, girl. Now she has to wear a cone for 2 weeks before she goes back to have her stitches removed. I feel so sad for her and we have to give her medicine twice a day for two weeks. *big sigh*
The good news was that Jeff came home early to drive with me to pick her up and we had a mini-weird date enjoying the 45 minute car ride in traffic. We brought Zuma home and Juliana watched her and got her set up safely and comfortably away from our other cat.
When everyone and every cat was taken care of, Jeff and I snuck away for a quick Monday night Happy Hour, which made everything all right and settled my mind. We took a moment just for us and this made me happy.
Life is good.
How was your Monday?
