We are all feeling the worse for wear today. C has a chills-and-fever thing going on; I am just incredibly tired (malaise), and Rachel has her door closed all day, so who knows? I have been looking at ebay and naturally found three things that look pretty good. But stingy me, I put in a somewhat higher bid with an auction sniper, it adds a little something to the bidding watching.
I don't expect to win...
I am still grieving the loss of Maggie, she went downhill so fast (2 weeks or so). We had her at the vet's office to remove a growth on her leg, and I think they would have noticed her illness then. But there isn't much to regret, even a month ago she would have needed a lot of chemotherapy, and to be frank, I wouldn't have agreed to put her through that. My chemo made me ill, and I understood why. A dog would not have understood anything except that they felt bad.
2016 will surely go down as a Bad Year. Beginning with my husband's death in May, the death of my horse Willie in June, the water completely flooding into the lower level of the house following a rain storm in July, and now the passing of Maggie, I know they are not equally the same importance, but still they are all losses. Being diagnosed as diabetic, having neuropathy, breaking a tooth, all kinds of little things that by themselves are trivial, but added to the rest I feel like I am wearing a big target on my back. 2015 wasn't a great year either, with the death of my Uncle and then 10 weeks later my Aunt. Seems like they were setting the stage for the later things.
I am way too morbid to continue this.
Thought for the day: "My glass is empty! Quick! Call Wine-one-one! "
