Hi. <wave>
In no particular order, I have lately been:

embarrassed - I knew the vet was coming over this morning, and I still stayed up until 1am, failed to set the alarm, and (predictably) overslept.

peeved - I think the brand-new transmission in my truck has started slipping at high speeds.

awash with grief - Dora died. She was my first show cat, the little tortoiseshell martinet that made the trains run on time. Not like I didn't know it was coming, but that didn't stop me from howling, banging blindly into doorframes, etc.

delighted - I spent four days with the Cravers in Illinois talking horses, looking at horses, breeding horses, and generally soaking up horse stuff. Yummy. Fall in southern Illinois is a lovely time of year, at least if it's not soggy.

focused - spent two solid days doing my way overdue data input for the Al Khamsa Directory. Also, yesterday afternoon I did research for the article on the British Shorthair. However, that thing isn't going to get off the ground if I don't write or call some breeders, so that's on the agenda for today.

loved - between the four-day Rashid clinic and the four-day visit to the Cravers, I hadn't gotten to see much of elflet. So, when not interviewing with Google or pounding on Anita's keyboard, I was in San Jose. There's hardly anything as nice as an afternoon spent sharing a couch with someone you love and a good book. (Although I watched a lot of baseball, too.)


Current Mood: many-splendored

My sympathies on your loss. There is still a Princess-shaped hole in my heart, years after her death... she'd been with me over two decades. Pets just move into your heart and take up residence, don't they?

Man, I still burst into tears over Sass, and she's been gone for years now. I do have a strong sense, with a couple (Sable, and now Dora), that they are still with me in spirit. (Not the sort of thing I'd normally confess in public, mind. :-)

Nor I, but I know exactly what you mean. Um, in theory. Yeah.

i'm sorry about your kitty.

i lost my baby-cat a year, and my grandmother a month later - it makes me smile to think of them keeping each other company.

Oh, damn, I'm sorry to hear about Dora. She was a very fine cat.

Oh damn... I didn't know Dora passed on... :( I'm sorry, sweetie.

But, on the up-side, her little spirit is still around, watching over you and yours. :) Love abounds in your household.
