After finishing classes on Thursday, I thought I would have a lot more time and spirit for blogging. I need a few days. I worked all weekend, which was fantastic and really made me feel like I’m getting back into the swing of things, but it also left me pretty tired last night.
We discovered last night that Ewan (my old man rat) has his umpteenth abscess, and while I would be more than happy to pay for his care, I don’t think he would make it and I think it would be cruel to put him through that. His mobility has gone down to about 20% of what’s normal and he can’t really take care of himself in the way that rats need to be able to. His quality of life is just shot to hell. So we decided to have him put down this afternoon and join his brother Finley wherever rats go in the afterlife (hopefully somewhere full of chocolate).
So I’m going to need a couple days. I’ll be back soon. I just can’t think about being fun or sexy right now, just sad.
