Different View

In the last few years Bonk has developed some pretty serious skin allergies. This year seems to be the worst and she just looks so pitiful right now. She has no hair around her her tail or under her chin. It looks like Bonk and I may be making a trip to the vets this weekend. I am still amazed how how well Bonk is doing. I think she is completely deaf, but she still runs around acting like a kitten most days. Bonk has been a part of my life for so long that I can't imagine being without her.

I stopped and talked for about 45 minutes with the manager of my apartment complex and it went really well. I am not getting exactly what I want, but they are still really willing to work with me. I think I know what I am going to do, but I want to talk to Susan tonight to see what she thinks.

I am feeling a lot more centered today. I woke up this morning still kind of in a funk, but when I sat at thought about how much I have to be thankful for I decided it was just silly for me to be in a bad mood. My mind knows it's my parents loss, but sometimes my heart gets confused and I am sad. The more I have been acknowledging that sadness the more I am able to let go.

At lunch today I was talking about Susan and I realized...I talk about her a lot. I am lucky because my friends and co-workers don't make fun of me for being so giddy about her. Thank you for being so understanding when I go on and on about her on here. I am so crazy about Susan that I am thinking of doing a "My Favorite Things" post where I tell you all my favorite things about her. I know....I am acting like a total teenager.

One of my co-workers daughters was selling chocolates for a school fundraiser about a month ago and I ordered a box of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. They came in today. Oh.My.God. They are so good. I know my sugars are going to be through the roof tomorrow.

you are cute giddy and not obnoxious giddy so that's cool. Forgot about my treats-on my way to get them out of the car.

I hope Bonk is OK. I know she has the allergies, but could this be age related, too? Give her a few pets from me, OK?

I'm glad the complex is working with you. I'm eager to hear what the offer is.

OK, OK, OK. If you insist, I'll tolerate your giddiness. But only that .... tolerate. :D I'm just glad you're happy!!

I agree, the giddiness is sweet! I am so happy for you.
Sending out good vibes for Bonk.
