Goodbye Sweet Saya

I was trying to post at least twice a month but things got hectic and the last month or so has been pretty bad. If you follow me on instagram or facebook then you already know but a very special dog named Saya BooBoo Brown had died back on the 18th of September. A pit-bull puppy had torn through the fence and killed her. Even though it has been over a month it still hurts to know she no longer walks this earth. She will be forever missed. 

On top of that, my grandparents are not doing well. My grandmother is getting worse with her dementia and the pain she has in her legs is making her even more miserable. She is getting sun downers pretty bad now. My grandfather keeps getting bad cases of gout in his foot and can’t even walk. My mother has basically turned back into a full time nurse to try and take care of them but I know it is hard on her as well. 

I want to be able to do more for them myself but I feel pretty useless. When I push myself too hard I end up with fevers and horrible flare ups of my fibro. I guess the stress of all this is not helping.

I couldn’t even concentrate on my test for work and I failed it for the second time. I have one more try but I’m not sure I want to even deal with it right now. I’m just frustrated I failed again when I felt like I was finally understanding this portion. Apparently the admin part is the hardest test of the certification and I’m not the only one who struggled this much with it. Trick questions! So stupid!

My sister and her husband kept having heavy hearts coming home to an empty house that they finally caved and got a rescue dog. They didn’t want to get one too soon but couldn’t stand not having a dog anymore. I think it is good for my sister since she loves dogs so much and it will help her finally move on from Saya. Her name is Mia and she looks like a sweetheart. I can’t wait to meet her. The poor pup lost her owner to death so I feel it is a good match for them. She is a Chiweenie and I will post pictures of her soon.

In good news, the creep from my last post has quit his job so I never have to see his stupid face ever again. Wahoo! Thank god for small blessings.

As for work, I decided to volunteer myself to help with the Halloween Walk-Thru. I like Halloween a lot and I collect decorations every year. Since I don’t put them all up until Halloween day because of bad weather and possibility that people will steal them, I thought I could bring them up for the one-day event here. I even made some DIY Halloween decorations using old clothing, newspaper, and trash bags. I think this should be fun. I will be sure to post pictures for my next blog entry!

My ankle is almost healed. I can walk a lot more now even though I limp a bit. At least it doesn’t hurt a lot, it feels more stiff than anything. I’m just ready to get back to exercise because I’m tired of the weight gain I have. Bah!

I hope I have happier things to post about on my next entry. 

Last but not least…

It’s asexual awareness week!
