Hello dear friends

It was very good to hear the updates from all of you. Keith and Jackie seem to have found good jobs to settle down to which is great news! Tina, I hope you and your husband are in good health now. Bonnie, I hope both your husband and Thor are doing better. Sounds like it's been a difficult time for you, taking care of both of them through the recent period.

Diane, sorry to hear of your mom's health problems. I hope things will get better for her in the coming days. Botti cat is very much like your Brandy was, Diane. She is totally freaked out by thunderstorms and rain. It's been rather rainy here in the last weeks so she's been having a hard time with it. Been under my blanket quite a lot, which I do so love, even if that only happens when she's stressed. Conversely, Karma cat was never afraid of storms and rains at all.

Recently I had a couple days of meeting up with friends and family, after the long break. And a few days later after that, I realised I had been too distracted with those small activities to feel sad about Karma cat at all. Indeed, for a couple of days, K cat hardly came to my mind at all. But soon, I started to recall her again, and then it hurt all over again. All of you know exactly how it feels, this feeling that will never leave any of us. The only way to move past this is either to forget her, or keep the mind constantly distracted, neither of which I can do.

Stay safe everyone, and hope that the next weeks bring some small blessings for all of you.

Hello to everyone, I guess we've all drifted our own ways which I guess is good. I guess it means we've all moved on some. I actually would rather read something from all of y'all every week or so. I still lone for the days of Miss B and the days we spent together. Her chasing lizards and licking frogs while I just sat back and laughed at her. I dont want to move ahead much more. I dont want to change my life anymore I was doing fine the way I was. Anyway I know we are all moving on but that isn't always whats best at least not for me. I just want to work this job as much as i can then call it quits retire for good. I have really had enough but I need to go a couple more years. Anyway ease stay in touch i hope we don't move anything farther apart. Your friend ways Keith. P.s. Jackie im gonna call as soon as these 12 hour work days end.

Hi Keith, (and Diane, Bonnie, KCat and Tina)

I just saw your email.  I am working from home with the whole CoVid thing.  I don't know if I've moved on... I still think of Rosie every day and at work my notebook has a cover of her and LuLu and I have pictures on the wall of Rosie, LuLu, KitKat and Blossom.  

I too would rather hear from you guys.  If just a short message.  I have noticed we don't contact each other as much.  That makes me sad.

This job is a real stressor and quite a challenge.  I suppose all the mental thinking makes me stay young but it also makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes.  Lots and lots of procedures, clients, wellness centers, vets...you name it.  It really is too much for one person but I am taking it one day at a time.  Last Friday I hit the wall.  I worked on an assignment for four hours and it didn't upload into the system properly because the formula (that I hadn't messed with) was wrong.  I guess in this case I needed to change it.  Every other time it's HANDS OFF!  leave it alone.  

It has been hot, smoky, dusty and dry here in Boise.  I am trying to find little places of "paradise" but it is hard.  Quite frankly, I don't really care for the high desert!  

Well, back to work.  Keith please call when you can.  I have been struggling with fatigue and depression and want to climb into my little hole.  Not good for me.  Love to all,

Jackie in Boise

Hello everyone, sorry I haven't been on very much lately. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. I have had alot of people here working on the house, I had a hot water tank spring a leak and a very strong wind blow my siding off. I am so glad I have insurance. My mother is doing ok, yesterday was her surgery. I really miss Brandy because she would have kept me smiling through all of this. It is funny though I feel her so strongly with me. I swear sometimes I could just turn around and she would be there. I guess she is watching over me. I hope everything is going good for all of you in these trying times. Love Diane

Hi Keith, Jackie, Diane, Bonnie, and Tina

It's true the chatter here has really dropped a lot. If moving on means getting past the trauma of THAT event, well I'm definitely still stuck. Little tearful eruptions still strike me very frequently. It just takes a thought, a small trigger of some sort and off I go. But it doesn't last for long. I don't fret about it too much though. I've accepted that this is how things will be for the rest of my journey.

I guess it gets embarrassing repeating the same laments over and over again. And for me, there is really nothing much new to report too, since covid has ground almost everything to a halt. Meanwhile, I try hard NOT to notice how things are tipping further and further into mayhem. Hapless creatures getting burnt up in the uncontrollable forest fires, or destroyed by typhoons, floods, global warming. And Covid19 has spurred humans into an unprecedented level of further polluting this planet, and the poor animals that will be the victims of this. I have a horrible sense of powerlessness in trying not to see all this.

So am I depressed? Shouldn't I be depressed?? That doesn't even matter actually. I know none of us here are happy bunnies, so I really shouldn't be making posts like these, probably...

Anyway, take care my friends and let's hope things can somehow get a little better soon.

Dear Karmacat, please remember we are here for any post you choose to make. If you are feeling depressed it helps to voice it. I truly wish I had some great words of wisdom for all of us but there isn't any. All I can do is be hear to listen and please know I care. Everyone please take care. Love to all of you Diane

Karmacat, Diane said it best post what you feel we all have been there. I for one am still there yes a subtle thought or passing Miss B's bed sometimes makes me just sit and think how much joy she brought to me. Should you be depressed uh yeah. I don't think any sane ( with me i use that term loosely) person can help but be depressed. This year has been one for the record books and its only Sept.
Anyway sorry I can't talk more but I'm at work so stay in touch. And good luck everyone for the rest of the year.
