we had to put her down today.
needless to say, we went out for mexican food (and a strong drink) immediately afterward. of course, the gym did not happen. frugality did not happen. and i realized, as i walked the door later, that it was okay. this kind of thing qualifies for a quick step off the wagon. i realized, i still want to be frugal, not to worry.
but at the time, making my fiance not cry for half an hour after he'd been dealing alone with the vet while i was at work, well you just can't put a price on that.
we will feel sad for a few days, but think we'll be okay. as i told john, we'll always have kitties around. we just need some time.
i simplified the blog design a bit. it feels better for the stage of life i'm at, paring down to the essential things of comfort, necessity, and beauty that make for a happy self and home.
i really want to bake something just spectacular. stressful times always put me in that mode. might just pass like a craving, which is good. tomorrow i attempt again to get back to the gym after 11 days off. the cold is practically gone. thank you, immune system, melatonin, and vitamin D.
on the upside, it was a great day at school. working in bedroom slippers makes a world of difference. thank goodness for montessori schools.
