Gone for the Weekend...

In case anyone noticed my absence, I went away for the weekend. I had initially thought I wasn't going anywhere due to feeling like crap, but I sucked it up and managed to get my ass packed and out the door.

While it was cold and windy and not particularly pleasant at the lake, I'm really glad I went. I saw an Osprey fishing for the first time in my life, and that alone was worth the trip. It was a pleasant relaxing weekend and I didn't want to come home.

On the way home, the only thing that kept me from falling apart (I know it's strange, don't ask... I don't get it either) was the thought of going home to my precious kitty.

Once we got home, there were many phone messages for both of us, and we started returning them in order. The last one was from Jason's parents. They had to put his cat down today (not my kitty, but his first ever childhood kitty who lives lived at home with his parents). Words cannot describe how horrible I feel right now.

I am hoping to catch up to my lj friends sometime soon, but tonight is not the night.

Jason's face shows he's taking it bad, but the words coming out of his mouth are very matter of fact. I hate it when his body language and verbal language conflict :/

i was wondering where you were this morning. i'm glad you had a good time, even though the return wasn't pleasant.

Thank you!

I've also been having deadline issues at work, so my lj'ing has been slacking off considerably :P

Oh ouch. :-( Scritch your own kitty for solace. They leave holes in our hearts when they go, and they'll never live human lifespans, so love 'em like crazy while they're here. (I too have had to put a beloved childhood kitty to sleep -- she was 21 and a half, and it was time, but gawd it hurts to this day.)

Yeah it's never easy to say goodbye. Fortunately Buzzer has been extra snuggly.

Awwwww, Shar.... you OK?

My wife and I kinda went through something similar this weekend... friends of ours had to put down thier golden retriever (that we used to watch for them while they were away) because he hurt his spine and couldn't walk. He really loved my wife. He was a quiet dog but got very excited when he saw her because she always had a treat for him and she gave him a lot of attention.

I've been through a few pets being put to sleep..... It doesn't ever get any easier.

Sorry Shar,

How horrible, I hope you guys are doing ok too. Nothing worse than having to say goodbye forever to a loved one :/

I'd love a weekend like that. Sorry to hear about the kitty.

It was a good weekend. I totally embrace yucky weather lately because I am seeing some kind of beauty in it. The kitty was really the only bad part :(
