Hello hello. Hope everybody had a solid weekend. I did absolutely nothing with my life and it was good. I avoided almost all human contact, checked almost all of my languishing emails and sort of started to slowly return to functioning again. There is a gaping hole in our lives where Tilly was and my apartment feels like a big hollow depressing cavern. That little cat had a huge presence. I was telling another cat owner who is about to make some of the same tough decisions I just did that I don’t think things necessarily get easier, they just get further away. So to that extent, each day at least feels a little easier.
Friday night I realized I hadn’t really eaten much at all this week and was suddenly starving to death so I sent Nick an emergency falafel text and that’s what we did for dinner. (Honestly any time I want falafel it’s kind of an emergency situation.)
When I grow up I hope I’m just like my mom. She always sends us stuff for holidays that basically don’t even count anymore in adulthood but she still wants them to be special. So we got a box of Easter cookies that taste just like cake. I seriously do not even know when Easter is.
In my quest to un-chemical my life, I have struggled to find a suitable replacement for my Febreeze habit. I am hyper sensitive to the fact that cats don’t smell good and am terrified I can’t tell how bad my house smells so I’m constantly dousing it in fragrances. Febreeze is the strongest and thus my favorite. I know it’s not good though and most certainly doesn’t stick to my no animal testing rule so I’ve been on the hunt for a replacement. I found it. SMELLS SO GOOD.
I wrapped up the final Week 12 of the Kayla Itsines program this weekend and FREAKING LOVE IT. I’m starting round two tomorrow.
Beyond that there was just a whole lot of cat time with these two jokers:
Have a very lovely week. This week I think I’ll be chatting dill pickle popcorn, how to veganize boxed crumb cake and the vegetarian food I love at a chicken place. Positive vibes only.
