okay okay – catlicious!

well, that’s a fabulous idea. if we didn’t have the fabulous friends who are helping us so much, we would be in quite the pickle for lunch today, it seems.

it’s punched it’s way up to 57 degrees this afternoon, I’m wearing my wooly socks and now my toes are warm!

Boo and I made it to LoggieLand after dropping Z off at K&P’s in the City – quite nice meeting them (hadn’t met P yet)… Pops K was there too! Shaman was sooooooo happy – but I think he’s that way all the time – which is great.

In LoggieLand we had some nibbles, walked Shiloh and Blue well, Shayna was happy to see boo again, and all was pretty good. We just got the news that Pops L made it out of surgery and is doing well. yay.

Um…. more later. We made it to today, I’m frankly surprised.

and canela was on the kitchen floor, not doing well at all.

Fuck.

Canela would come and check on us in the bathroom – be it using the loo or having a shower, she’d poke her head in – maybe take a quick spin around the joint, just to make sure we’re all right. I imagine she picked up that habit from her first people, perhaps they had a tendency to fall down, or fall out, in the john. Don’t know, but it certainly makes her special.

Loved her ears… they stuck out and had a droopiness at the ends – you could tell she was happy that way. Her ears would flop when she ran. She would hop like a bunny when she was excited – heading in from a trip to the poop deck, hoping to get some nibbles on. She’d nibble on blue’s food – ignoring her own. Her puppy dreams were wonderful and beautiful and perfect.

Fuck.

We got Canela cause she was in the same kennel run as Blue. She was an older dog, and Boo said “no one’s gonna adopt her” … so we did. I can’t say for certain, but having both pups in our abode certainly gained a balance in our universe. I loved walking canela in LA – Eddie will be saddened, I’m sure. Everyone liked her, and she certainly liked walking… Blue was just too much at times to go strolling amongst ‘others’ – we’d do our walks alone at night.

We just had supper club on Monday, and Canela was able to see and be with a few new peeps – and that’s a good thing. She’s awesome, and everyone needs more awesome in their lives.

Fuck, I’m gonna miss her.

Fuck.
devastated is a word to describe my shell, the utter lack of anything left, I’m done. I’m gonna sleep … I hope in a vast still black void … not thinking, not feeling, cause I feel like shit.

fuck.

I hope Canela and Nancy come to visit Blue tonight, so they can run and play and be happy.

I love ya, girl – thank you soooooo much.

fuck.

I’m so very sorry.

I was very sorry to her about your loss. 🙁 Losing that unconditional love is a real heartbreak, I know. All I can say is, be sure to focus on the good of having her around, as opposed to the bad of how it ended. Trite advice, probably, but isn’t it all at a time like this? Anyway, I’m thinking about you guys today.

I am so, so sorry.

and so it’s thursday afternoon, I started writing a bit ago – perhaps the lead into NaNoWriMo. I’m trying to plan myself into december – it’s a bit of a challenge since I’m having a tough time with Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Weeeeeeee

Hope peeps are doing well – the the H&K – sorry to hear of your career changes, but I do hope you celebrated your anniversary with gusto – you two deserve to have lots of fun!

Mom’s doing well, the weather is turning fallish here today, and … well… we’re making our way through October, but frankly, it’s let us down a tad.

had to scamper to an outlaying parking spot. got drenched, but it felt really really … refreshing.

Things continue to go well with my ma – she’s back home, getting caught up on her rest, and Blood’s there to keep an eye on things and help as well as the Best Twin of 2006(c) can.

I sit here watching the leaves fall between boughts of ‘Seattle Sunshine’ –

Got my tooth fixed Tuesday. Much less pain – yay!

Supper Club was Super! on monday night – yay!

all the kids are here. It’s fall, the weather’s crisp and nice and …
things change. the weirdest things are noticeable – the huge pine tree across the street – gone. The back of Joe’s Seafood – there was a small 5 lane bowling alley – gone. The building across the way where I purchased Evil Knievel trading cards the summer he went for the big Snake River Canyon jump – gone.

Mom’s off to surgery tomorrow. Blood sits here talking with Wendy, Shari’s in the other room with David. We’re all here.
