Helluva 10 Days

I’ve had a hell of a 10 days.

Last Saturday, (not day-before-yesterday, a week before that) I went to one of my best friends’s funeral.

Last Sunday, my wife told me she doesn’t love me anymore and wants a divorce.

Last week I went to a counsellor with the wife and felt like they were both ganged up on me.

I kind of had a meltdown at work after that because I’ve been feeling ignored, not part of the team, and when everyone, everyone except me. left to go to a meeting. I figure my same insanity that makes me invisible at work is the same insanity that makes my wife want to leave.

Last Friday, I took my cat to the vet and found out she had lymphoma (cancer) and there was nothing that could be done to save her. She wasn’t in pain, so I brought her home to live her life. She almost immediately disappeared and I assume she’s gone forever.

Things probably can’t get worse, but it might. I have an “executive physical” tomorrow, A very intensive physical exam. I think I’m ok but you never know.

But overall, I gotta be near the valley floor, sstarting to climb high again. Have a good week!

Cold, Windy, Morning Walk

Above are pictures from this mornings dawg walk. Somebody has a mirror on a light pole. It’s been very cloudy, cold and windy since Sunday afternoon.

It’s so cold that yesterday, during lunchtime, I took a nap in my van and it wasn’t even hot. I slept good for 55 minutes. Perfect timing. Looking at the wind chart above, maybe today will be a good day for a lunchtime swim!

Have a good day, don’t get blown away! (That rhymes).

Second Skin

Yesterday I found a second snakeskin from, I believe, the same snake. The first was probably more than a year ago and if I remember correctly, about half as big. This one was almost six feet long.

A co worker is taking some vacation time at the end of this week and I’ve started thinking I should do the same. Soon, not this week.

Have a good Wednesday!
