So, I get home from work
today was garbage day, and the garbage men flung my cans over the yard.

Fucking assholes.

While putting them away, I hear a big "crack". Look up and see this huge ass branch has broken off the tree in my neighbor's yard.

Walk around the back and see that half of it landed on my side of the yard, right on top of the fence.

*sigh*

This week ain't over yet???

4. Yesterday I got around to putting away Trin's litter box and food dish
I still expect to see her perched on top of the cat tree in her favorite spot :cry:

One bright spot: a coworker who learned of my loss gave me flowers today.

14. Trinity will always be with you
She's probably perched there now in spirit watching over you and the rest of your lovelies.

21. I know just how you feel. I still expect to hear Skunkie "talking to me"
and without him around, the water dish often does not get tended to.. he always yowled like a crazy cat for his water with ICE..EVERY morning when I ran water to make coffee.. Sometimes I look down at their water bowl, and it's dry or near to it.. Then I get all gulity because they had to drink from the drippy tub faucet :(.. Without the "water monitor", I forget.. Skunkie also led the "treats parade" every day when my husband got home.. I don't know how many days it's been since treats were handed out :(

When will the autopsy results be in?..It's just so freaky how Trin died so suddenly without even appearing sick.

22. The vet's assistant said he will call me
however, I think I will call tomorrow to inquire.

My sister in law called me yesterday, and was teasing me about not answering the phone.

I explained that I was awaiting a "dreaded" phone call -- nothing personal about her.

My brother did manage to cheer me up. He say's I'm going to be like that crazy cat lady on The Simpsons.

7. I'd call the sanitation department and let them know their employees
are flinging garbage cans around the nieghborhood.

What if a small child or pet had been in the way?

10. If you weren't there

how do you know it was the garbage men.

Couldn't someone else have passed by and done it ?

19. I already have a small one
but it's his branch, and his problem.

I see you're turning just a little gray, eh?
