Homai to Aroha
As a general ‘rule of thumb’ …
[which by the way, was an old law which stated that the stick you could use to beat your wife was to be no thicker than your thumb …]
it tends to be that one theres one or two things going to the shitter, it seems to propel a landslide type of effect.
Well, it does round here anyways.
After what I thought was a cunt of a day, and the ‘wins’ that a strove to find throughout it …
Our cat got sick … so sick in fact, that he died.
Now I’ve said it before, I’m not a huge animal person and I have attachment issues *groan and eye ball roll*; so I kinda thought I wouldn’t be upset with the passing of our fur ball.
But I cried like a little bitch. And I’m still reasonably upset. I think I was more upset that my partner was so upset. Our cat was his compadre <3
*Digression: Parents: Let your little biological males cry … in fact, encourage it! It’s fucking healthy!
So with the cat gone and the partner off to bury him, the real estate people we rent from, show up for ‘a house inspection’ [hate those] and the ‘For Sale’ paperwork for the house. So its official, the house is up for sale as of this weekend. Roll on intrusive Open Homes and awkward questions ewwww. Anyway, I think we have that sort of sorted … and I’m just gonna roll with it all … oh, and get some more anti-anxiety’s ;)
But theres this uneasy awkward feeling … I guess cos shit is changing …
The upshot: I survived / am surviving the loss of an animal that I thought I wasn’t attached too, and the tears and the attached emotional element thingees … and that as much as I don’t like them and they make me feel like an awkward retard … I am Ok.
The house will get sold and we will move on. We might not be by our beach anymore, we might even be in a tent on my daughters front lawn … but we’ll be Ok. I will be Ok.
Anyway … I miss our cat. And missing shit sucks … but I wouldn’t want to have Not had him around.
I guess thats the pay-off, or not, with attachment and love? I’m still figuring it out … and rolling with it …
