I'm so sorry, seitanicverses, that's just so terribly unfair. <3

Its still in the kitchen. I went downstairs and could hear something clinking, like its rooting around the cups and glasses left out for washing. I hope it goes for the cracker we put in the humane trap overnight so we can put it out tomorrow. Such a worry.

I'm sorry to hear about Thurston, SV :(

Today was a HORRIBLE day. I got some women to clean my apartment because I've been out of town (tragic death in the family) and it was my birthday the other day and cleaning on top of that and other life stuff was too much. I'd had them clean before and they did a decent job. This time, I just asked them to do floors and windows (and I checked with them beforehand to be sure they were cool with windows)... and well, by the time I came back into town, the money I'd left them was gone and my apartment was disheveled... then I finally got a hold of them and they were all, "omg I'm so sorry!! We'll come in first thing! We didn't realize you'd be back yet!" I'm a pushover so even though I was going to ask for my money back, I said, "ok."

So I get back from another trip today and they didn't do my windows!!!! and my floor wasn't mopped!!! AND all my cleaning supplies were used up (I had a full supply and my apartment is really small) and also missing were: my broom, my mop bucket, and my mop... the nice kind with the cloth bottom. They won't get on the phone with me, they'll only text, and they're being SO UNHELPFUL. I'm like, "yes, i'm upset you didn't do what i asked, but please don't come back into my apartment and just please please please return my things," to which they reached the conclusion, "we'll look for it." ahhhhhhh!!!

my friend scared the living crepe out of me today and everything is fine and she's fine but damn if I'm not coming down from a pretty hardcore adrenaline jump yo.

I'm really thankful everything's fine and it was okay but it was still scary, the past few times i've gotten that call someone's ended up committed, drinking charcoal, or dead.

SV, I'm so sorry. Not today but.... Grandpa's colon cancer has spread into his stomach. We don't know how bad it is yet. Dad doesn't have spine cancer, he has small cell lung cancer in his spine. Dr says average life expectancy at this point is 18 mos. He is going to come live with us and is getting palliative chemo. He is generally upbeat.

I am in shock and working too much and am not eating healthily and am exhausted.

Woke up with a headache that turned into a migraine. Took medication to combat it that made me feel drunk. I've been sleepy, dizzy, nauseous and had a headache alternately all day. It's not letting up.

That's super irritating. My dog has consumed my glasses three forking times...I hope you have a backup or can get them fixed.

SV, I'm so sorry

moon, best of luck in handling all that.

My uncle (great uncle, technically) died today...which means an entire generation o f my family essentially died this summer. His older brother died early June, then a week later my grandmother. I'm just sad about it, but I'm also worried about my mom since it was her side and she's living in a place with no friends yet and staying home all day with a dog who has too much anxiety to really go out. Ugh

I really forking hate it when I try to give people the benefit of the doubt and let them use our office restroom, only to feel more and more certain, after they've been in there for five minutes with running water, that they've only come in to shoot up or smoke rock. Leaving a choking cloud of perfume behind you does not ease my suspicion. Nor does the change in demeanor between entering and exiting. Or the hasty retreat as soon as I knock authoritatively and ask "everything okay in there?"

I was supposed to visit my ill aunt today. I got up early and everything. Then i got message from her husband saying they spent half the night in the ER, so today wouldn't be a good day to visit. I've known she was dying for awhile (her illness is fatal and uncurable) but this really forces me to realize that it probably won't be too long. So now i have started my day lying in bed crying and talking to frogs outside.

The frog part wasn't bad, but the nature of our conversation was.

We lost a cat to pneumonia. He had just come from the pound Sunday and by Tuesday we had to admit him. The shelter is so overcrowded that diseases are rampant and it's so, so sad how many cats make it out only to die from something they caught while there.

To make it worse, a kitten we adopted out died from a genetic abnormality. She had been perfectly healthy til then and the adopters called the Petco Foundation about it (we have events there) and now we might be suspended pending an investigation, even though we have done nothing wrong and had no way of knowing that the kitten had any problems.

Great, now a blind senior Shi-tzu we have in foster care has pneumonia and a brain tumor and the vet is recommending euthanasia. I can't take all these animals dying. The shelter is so overcrowded right now and so many get sick there - the Shi-tzu caught kennel cough there and probably the pneumonia too.

She probably had the brain tumor and was dumped at the shelter because the owner couldn't/didn't want to deal.

Hugs to everyone ((( )))


We have a less than happy relationship with Mr8's parents. They wanted to visit today and Mr8 told them it was ok as he thought it would cheer his Mum up (Her mother is very elderly, has deteriorating mental capacity and is possibly going to become a hospital resident soon, and her sister-in-law is dying of cancer). They hadn't been at our house for an hour when his Mum started making awful, horrible, hateful statements about women who choose to wear a burka. They often make comments about 'the terrorists' and people of other races but we were really shocked by this and didn't know how to respond.

While they were alone Mr8 explained to his Dad how offensive the statements had been and asked if they could not say those things in front of BG (some of his schoolfriends mothers wear a burka or hijab), but was told that it was 'tough' and got accused of trying to force our views onto people, plus that our views are 'rubbish'. There was no apology and no statement that they wouldn't promote their hateful ideas to BG.

At the moment we're very reluctant to have them back in our house again. I don't want to have anyone in my home that is so disrespectful, not only to our beliefs but to the beliefs and cultures of others.

Big hugs, blondie. That's just so awful to deal with all at once.
And 8ball, that sucks. I hope BG doesn't internalize that stuff and wasn't too upset by it.

So, if you watch the news, it made national coverage. But I was on duty last night.

I'm about to go to work now. I am really dreading it.

Holy crepe, that is so scary! Amusement park deaths freak me out so much.

Hugs to everyone in here going through rough shiitake.

Freaky.

My uncle-in-law is a civil engineer and refuses to go to amusement parks because all the people at the bottom of his class in school ended up designing roller coasters, apparently.

I hope everyone's day is better tomorrow.
