A Very Bad Day

Yesterday I had to put my beloved Katy down. I was not ready. I thought I knew the signs, but Katy didn't experience those signs. She was still eating, she was still agile, and she could still be happy, but she was in pain. The tumor was shutting off her bladder.

Today we are snowed in, wandering around the house that feels so empty. Lucy doesn't realize it yet and keeps looking for her as I keep making a conscious effort not to.

I voted. I hate local news. I don't like rain.

I went to vote in the primary today. There was no line and I was back home in about 20 minutes. I thought I'd check the local news to see what they were saying about voter turnout. I was reminded why I hate local news and why I never watch it. First there was the "HORRIBLE WEATHER!!" part of the story. HORRIBLE WEATHER = it was raining. Then I kept hearing about the "LONG LINES" and in a much more subtle tone "this morning". Then it was the "RECORD TURNOUT", followed by a quiet "for a primary." Yes, I'm aware that some polling places may have had more people, but I bet if that were the case, the news team would have been there to film it. It will be a very long time before I choose to see any local news again.

You know what I prefer over all of this rain?
