I am a mixed bag of emotions today.
(I almost wrote "I am a bag of mixed emotions" -- but that conjures a different image.)
Our indoor cat is still out there roaming, somewhere. She has not returned home yet, and I haven't seen her in two days. Cats insinuate themselves into your life in such small (and sometimes big) ways, that it's really quite strange not to have her around.
On a happier note, there is a moving truck in the neighbour's driveway. We have lived next door to these people for 14 years, and I am overjoyed to see them go. You know the schoolyard bully you did your best to stay away from when you were young? Well, imagine if they grew up and never changed and you had to live next door to them for a decade and a half.
Anyway, I am rolling my eyes as I think what we have put up with (and refused to put up with) over the years. Finally, the neighbours will be gone and I am glad to see them go.
But I wish my cat would come back home.
