"No matter what your heartache may be, laughing helps you forget it for a few seconds." Red Skelton
This was my motto all weekend.
Friday morning I let my cat Goo (short for Goober) outside as is quite normal. When it got to be lunch time and he hadn't come home I started getting worried. When it was time for my husband to come home from work I asked him to do it right away, Goo still wasn't home. We searched everywhere. He's never been gone this long. It hasn't even been a year since his brother Gul (Gul DuCat) went missing in quite the same way.
We had just started getting past the heartache of Gul leaving us and were considering a companion for Goo. Now, I imagine it will be a while before we look into adding to our family again.
This weekend I learned that when I'm stressed and depressed I hardly eat. I went under my calories on both days and didn't make the best choices either. Not so much on the sweets, I really had lots of bacon. I walked a bit more than usual just going around trying to find Goo.
Today, I'm just going to try to get back into normal life. I'm going to try to laugh and bring myself back where I want to be emotionally.
