Jimmy, the dog I babysit for, died tonight.

He was handsome and wonderful and so peaceful to be around.

I went to be with his people and him when they realized it was time.

I cried my eyes out, then Sally (his Mom) and I got drunk and took Xanax.

His Dad was really.........brave about it, though I knew what he was feeling. I admire him so much.

It's raining now and I can't believe he's gone.

He had the best neck.

I loved his smell.

Nobody need feel she should offer condolences, but please be nice to an animal somewhere, some time soon.

I hate that I smoke. It smells so bad, and it makes me feel sick sometimes.

But then I crave nicotine again, and nothing else helps.

I quit and then I start again.

It's awful.

I feel like my will gets weaker as I get older.

Nothing ever gets figured out and stays that way for long. We've got to accept the turmoil to find peace, but it's so hard.

Sometimes I feel like my feelings are like lava spewing from a volcano, and others like they're a small pot of steadily low-simmering water.

I'm glad there are cookies, but why is there poison ivy, too?

Sometimes I wonder how we stand living our lives. The burning ache of loss makes me pound my head against the wall and tear at my hair.

I don't like eggs like I used to, but I have come to enjoy the beauty of chickens.

I'm sorry if this post seems like the ravings of a lunatic.

I hope you feel better soon, ninja.

I just re-watched The Crossroads of Destiny (got ahead of Mark again). No matter how many times I watch it, it makes me cry each and every time. Sigh.

I'll be okay, Saria.

Thanks.

We heated roast beef and fancy dog cookies and brought out bowls of chipped ice water for him. I made him an open face roast beef sandwich. His Mom cooked him fresh home made meals every day.

I liked to follow him around the house on his evening ramble. He'd settle in the hall; I'd read beside him. He'd move to the foyer; I'd lean my back against the bottom step and keep reading. Then he'd go back to his bed, and I'd settle on the couch nearby. I liked to keep one hand on his long backbone, or a soft black ear. His nose stayed ink black, even at the end. He had a tremedous tail. It was very hard to keep from touching him.

Why do we feel such peace beside some creatures (or people)? Do we project it upon them, or do they draw us in?

All these questions are rhetorical, of course. I guess I wish I were more at peace with life. And yet the beauty of the world hits me anew every day. It's so beautiful here, but so hard. The streets in my neighborhood are perfumed with the scents of wild roses and peonies. It's lovely beyond measure.

The concurrent beauty and pain of life drive me crazy.

I think I'm turning into a character from The Forsyte Saga.
Oh Ninja such a bittersweet experience.

(((hugs))) nd...I'd hafta say they draw us in....I love my Rocky so...can't imagine life w/o him, especially now.....
He is my handsome boy. The little one always asks, mommy, why do you call Rocky handsome? lol
I feel so ridiculous for feeling envious of a friend's college reunion. All weekend she's posted pictures of the campus and old college friends on FB and I just feel like such a loser. I commuted to the local college when I was in school and stayed at home. I was shy, socially awkward and depressed back then. In the long run, the school I went to probably may not have been a good fit for me because a number of the students were older or poor and it was common to see someone one semester and never see them again. I don't have a single friend from that time. Needless to say, I don't look upon that time in my life very fondly like other people do. So why do I feel like I missed something when other friends speak so fondly of their college days when I graduated 20 years ago? I need to get over myself. Seriously.

Why do I attract strays? I swear the local humane society is going to start to think I'm a very unsuccessful backyard breeder. Oh well, another hot meal and a scrub bath and off to the humane society with this little dust mop puppy.

We found a Siamese kitten under the porch, but we're bottle feeding it and I think my roommate wants to keep it. It thinks my poor Bigby is a toy. He's feeling stressed.

Mom, why must you drive me crazy every time I see you?????

DH and I are staying at my parents' house this weekend while he hosts a seminar. This morning, he left to go up to the seminar site. I slowly got dressed, brushed my teeth, etc. and mentioned that I was going to head up to the seminar for a while to take pictures. My mom was outside doing something on the patio, and I grabbed my purse and camera and left, apparently without clearly saying goodbye to my parents.

Fifteen minutes later, I got a furious call from my mom:

Mom: Why would you leave without saying goodbye to me?
Me: I don't know, you were working outside.
Mom: But you could have told me goodbye before you left town.
Me: I'm not leaving town, I just came up to the college to take some pictures during the seminar. Didn't you see that we left all our luggage and things there?
Mom: Oh yeah, I saw those, I thought you forgot them.

So. There were two explanations in this scenario.

1. My husband and I were coming back to the house later today and would say our proper goodbyes before we left town, or
2. I left without saying goodbye to be hurtful to my mother and snub her, and just happened to forget two suitcases and a basket of laundry.

And of course she assumed number 2. WTF???? That doesn't even make sense.

I don't feel so good.

Small wonder.

In all seriousness, handrearing a kitten is no easy task. I would highly recommend researching before undertaking it. The difference between good house cat and a feral cat is it's mother and what she taught them and it takes a lot of work as a human to reproduce.
I've been getting the WORST calf cramps in the middle of the night... I know that drinking extra water helps (which I've been doing), and bananas are supposed to, also... I refused to eat bananas, because I absolutely hate the taste and texture. Well, all of the sudden yesterday, I got a ridiculous craving for bananas, and just HAD to have one. So I did... Sweet fancy moses, it was delicious! I think my body is tricking me into liking them so I can get whatever it is from bananas that I need to stop these leg cramps.

I'm not getting a good feeling about this referral client. He can't write, though he thinks he can. He also just asked me to pitch a rather stupid spin-off story to two local sources, which is not within the perimeters of the project. Want free PR? Good luck, buddy. I had enough of those requests as a reporter.

Guess I'll wait and see. The project proposal I'm crafting is going to be very, very clear and detailed. If he balks, so be it. I'm not going in as a collaborator; I'm here as the writer.
