Straight Into the Arms of Food

Monday, October 15, 2012

I felt like crap all weekend. Saturday, I stayed pretty much on track with food, but I was also a total couch potato. Yesterday, did what I had to do and was on track until the nausea hit me hard. I sought comfort in crackers. Lots of crackers.

Then, shortly before I went to bed, I learned that a friend died suddenly on Saturday of a massive heart attack. He was only a few years older than I am = far too young to die! But, despite whatever the coroner's report might say, I know, in my heart, he died of a broken heart. His wife, Ruby, was my very good friend/coworker/former boss who died suddenly just over 2 years ago.

They are reunited in heaven, I am sure.

There are two cats who now need a home. BF will not let me take one (we would then have 3). Part of it is because he is home with them all day (he does not work) and he does not want another cat to take care of. The other thing is that his cat is 16 and she will not want another cat around. But Juneau is only 6 and she would love a buddy! These two cats will be put down if they don't find homes! I would love to have the one I used to hear Ruby talk about when he was a runt of a kitten!

I did not stuff my face today, but it was really hard to concentrate and stay focused at work.

Tomorrow is the Toastmaster Open House and I am the emcee for the meeting. A bit nervous about it because I have not done it in a while, but it will be fine.

I may not be - ever again!

    Having a friend pass away is hard to deal with, but haaving him go suddenly is really bad. emoticon

    Sorry about the cats, and for the loss of your friend.

I got a dog once, and my husband hated her. (She ate our dinette set, destroyed his record albums, and crapped on his pillow.) So my husband said, "Either the dog goes, or I do." I thought about it for a minute, and gave the dog away. I think I made the right choice. There are compromises in every relationship.
