Right Side Up

Easier said than done, right?

I have ripped up thirty-two credit card offers today. I am single. Broke. Fair credit. I suppose I fit the "spend more than you make" demographic.

Perhaps I should buy a humble abode with a garden, live off the land and wear outdated clothes. I can do that and be an ultra-suave, cut-throat real estate broker, n'est-ce pas?

Speaking of..if any of my Georgia readership (north of I-20) dares to use anyone other than Key Monroe for your next real estate transaction, I will have Yabu break your legs. Or worse, I could go the extreme route of the side-bar tip jar, right?

Hopefully that won't be necessary.

Regarding the disappearing acts... Typically, it's a state of guilt over time wastage that prevents me from entering this dimension too terribly often.

Last week, however, I was too busy wallowing in grief, and I've been trying to get "right side up" emotionally since. I knew it was coming, but that didn't help when it got here.

I've lost my most solid friend of twelve years, my orange tabby, Aziza. I've had her since before there was a Priss, and she has literally been the most loving feline I have ever known. Believe me when I say that she loved me with every fiber of her being. I held her as she died (from kidney failure), and I've been fumbling around in a foggy daze since.

So this one is for Aziza, the best kitty ever...

((Hugs.)) My kitty of 22 years passed on Christmas day. She had kidney failure too. Sooo sorry for your loss. I know exactly what you are going through. ((Hugs))

It's a hell of a thing, losing a beloved pet. My heart goes out to you, Key. I'm so sorry.

..... she was a cute one, that's for sure..... may she be in kitty heaven chasing birds forevermore....

I had Doofus for 14 years and finally had to put him to sleep for kidney failure as a result of diabetes. I gave him insulin for a year. He was an awesome cat and he died in my arms. I know exactly how you feel.

Yabu breaking someone's leg? That pussy? BWAHAHAHAHA!

BTW, you need a blodgemeet in the worst way. Or just come to Atlanta and get together with Elisson, Zonker, and me.

Key, I'm so sorry to hear about your cat's passing. {{Hugs}}

C'mon, Denny. Lighten up. I heard Yabu broke wind the other day, and dared it to come back for more of the same.

Posted by: Velociman at April 26, 2007 07:13 PM

Damn, Key...I'm really sorry to hear this news.

Posted by: zonker at April 27, 2007 07:30 PM

Sorry to hear that Key... I remember when I lost my first Boxer, Spike. He was 'bout 13, which is next to fossilized for a Boxer. I'd carry his hind end up and down the stairs he couldn't navigate anymore. I went on about a 3 or 4 dayer when he left this worl'.

And Vman, Yabu did break wind. It did try to come back for more, but he ignited it and dang near rocketed himself to the moon.

Oy, there is absolutely NO WORSE sadness, and my heart goes out to you (remembering when I felt my B'boo's final heartbeat as I held him in my arms for the last time).

My deepest sympathies.

Posted by: Erica at April 28, 2007 06:25 PM

I feel for ya, Key. It sucks, loosing a pet that's more like a friend.

Takes some time to get right side up...

Posted by: That 1 Guy at April 29, 2007 02:28 PM

Real sorry to hear about Aziza. My sympathies.

How can someone that can't reach above my kneecaps break my legs?

Posted by: Richard at April 30, 2007 08:27 PM

What's with you people's spelling skilz? You loose bowels. You lose a pet.

Posted by: Velociman at April 30, 2007 10:05 PM

Well, first of all, good to know...I am going to be needing a real estate agent in the next few months....glad to know that search is over.

I'm so very sorry about your cat.

Key, I know how it feels. I've lost my two Goldens to the "Ex" and it feels as though they've died. I have a new pup -Cody and I love him dearly but still miss my Clancyboy and O'Malley. People who don't live and love with animals will never understand.

Sorry about the kitty. I've been there. It hurts. Hope things get better soon.

Thank you so much, Blogworld, for your kindness and compassion. My bedroom is still lonely. But she's a warm, fuzzy memory always.
