Over the years I have posted a lot of pictures of Norbert. And yet, nobody has ever mentioned the one huge and glaring thing about him. Were you all just being polite? Because he has huge ears. They are enormous. Totally out of proportion to his head. We don’t talk about it when he is around because we don’t want to hurt his feelings feeling. When you have ears that big, people and other cats make fun of you. It’s one of the reasons he isn’t allowed outside. I worry the other cats will make fun of him. At any rate, he doesn’t read my blog so I think it’s safe to mention it here.
Got up early, went to work. Came home, mowed the lawn, cleaned the litterbox and did a load of laundry. Now I am tired and intend to do nothing the rest of the night.
I think the Universe didn’t want me to have new bras. A few weeks back I ordered some online but no matter what I did the shipping came to $76.00 when it was supposed to be free. I tried for about 2 weeks before the problem worked itself out. Then when I did order them they somehow got lost in shipping. I called the shipping company and both numbers hung up on me. I called the store, they didn’t know what to do. Now I have to tell you, all my bras are shit. They were purchased from Costco about 3 or 4 years ago and not only are they too big since I lost weight, there is no elastic left in them. They serve no purpose other than I can say I am wearing a bra. Let’s not go into an explanation why I am tripping over my nipples. I have a damn bra on, okay? Anyway, they finally arrived today. 4 new bras with elastic that is still elasticy. Oh, joy!
Today would have been my mom’s 71st birthday. The day itself holds sadness but I don’t feel any more sad than I usually do. Just more aware that she should be 71 and not dead. But what can you do? Most days I’m okay that she is gone. When something sad or bad happens I want my mom. Mostly, I just try not to think about it too much. It weird. Death and being gone forever is weird.
Remember last week I said I was getting new scrub pants? Well, they arrived and they were huge on me. I have lost so much weight that I am now in a medium instead of a large. So there’s that.
It’s a beautiful day here. My husband is away for the weekend. Being alone used to send me into a tailspin of anxiety. Anxiety where I would be frozen with terror, not able to move in which I would wet myself. Now I am uneasy but not particularly anxious. I will let Norbert sleep with me. He is good for company. With those ears he can hear things that are happening a block away so he will alert me of anything untoward. He won’t do anything about it but at least I will be forewarned.
