Best of Friends
Some time in the night of April 4th 2015 my friend, Eve, of just over 7 years, passed away.

I was worried about her but thought she was in pretty good health (no stiff joints or cloudy eyes and was still eating). In the past couple days I noted a decline in her bahaviour. She didn't seem to be drinking a whole lot and she wasn't eating that much. I was hoping it was a phase and I was encouraged by her enthusiasm for green beans... Sadly I awoke to see that she had slipped away on me. A friend from work has offered to bury her next to her two wise cats when the ground thaws a bit more.
  • Mood: Miserable
  • Listening to: 3 Doors Down
  • Drinking: Oolong Tea
It's been just over a year now since my mom passed. I kind of can't believe I've gone this long without her. I remember when I was thinking of how I was going to move out and get another apartment and she cosigned for me, I was thinking how I'd have her over often to tea/coffee or something. I would have made supper and had them over. I would have talked to her on the phone often. When I think of the memories I could have made this past year they seem more colourful and cozy. When I look back on the memories I have actually made this past year... they're cold and empty. I've run into so many bumps with my family.

I've never been close to my dad. It's all I can do to email him since talking on the phone would be very awkward. I haven't talked to my brother or sister since Christmas since my sister flipped out at me. I understand emotions were running high since it was the first Christmas without mom but a little restraint goes a long way. I figure out relationship is now going to go the way mine did with my dad... we're essentially not going to talk. I don't trust my sister any longer. I barely trust my dad but I'm torn because now he's the only parent I have left so I would feel horrible if I didn't make some kind of effort. My mom might not be here anymore but I feel like she is somewhere... or maybe it's the memory of her that is living on in me so I kind of do things for her that I think she would want me to do.

My goodness I haven't cried about my mom in a little while now. As soon as I started writing this I turned into a puddle! Maybe that's a good thing as that's a good indication I was stuffing my emotions away in a little box. The stress from that kind of behaviour is never good so maybe my mood will... improve a little? 

I just look back over my apartment and picture sitting on the couch with my mom and we're talking about work or cooking or we're watching a show she likes. I could see her trying to pet Mynx and I can almost hear her voice and see her expression as she'd look at the new arrangement of my furniture.

It seems so wrong that she's not here to do any of that.

I'm a Help Desk support staff for a University. I like taking pictures and I would really like to get better at 1) taking pictures and 2) editing them. I don't usually edit my pictures but I'm getting there... What else. I like animals like cats and dogs and guinea pigs. I like a lot of music and I even try to play a little myself. I also like to read a lot and I occasionally try to write.
