Today has been an up and down day. Started off not good, in a horrid mood and oh so tired. Paul got up early and preceded to make it impossible for me to stay in bed after he had waited kindly for about an hour. Still too early for me! The day was redeemed with some yummy lunch and a quick trip to town for me (with Dolores, but oh so nice to get out of the house). Plus talking over some of the things bugging me, like the impossible standards set by cps (not that they have ever come to us, just reading about it online, and it really upset me, knowing that there is NO way I could do that as par for course. I could for a visit or a guest, but not every single day, so overwhelming). So silly to worry about things you can’t even control and have no reason to worry.
The other flip floppy part of the day was a few hours ago. We have this cat that lives across the street, she’s an outdoor kitty that for some reason really likes us. Sleeps on our outdoor chairs and steps and always comes when we are outside. Tonight I hurt her, and she won’t come/stay when she sees us. I was closing the van door, and didn’t see her, I don’t even know what part of her I closed in the door. I feel horrible, and keep hoping she’ll be out there. I know that’s silly too, but Paul LOVES this cat, like if we were needing a pet, we would be asking her people if we could make her our cat, we don’t NEED any pets (we have oh, oh, too many as it is!). I just hope she’s not injured and comes back. She is the only thing that got Paul past his not wanting to be outside, now he sits on the steps to eat his lunch with her!
