Loss

A lot has happened in my life over the last week or so, but I can't seem to bring myself to record much more than the events of today.

I stopped at the grocery store this morning. After I checked out, the cashier handed me my change: a $10 bill and some coins. I stuffed the bill into my coat pocket along with the receipt and the register coupons. When I got home, the $10 was gone.

I can't seem to find one of my rings. It's not my engagement ring, but it's not costume jewelry. I still hope to find it in some unexpected place, but I'm sad that it seems to be gone.

Tonight little Rudy made his last trip to the veterinarian. He had continued to live with my ex. I visited Rudy last night, and snuggled with him for awhile. Sleep in peace, little Ruru.

Sorry about your dog.

As for the lost things ... what was that little prayer we used to say?

"St. Anthony, St. Anthony
Please come down
Something is lost
And can't be found"

That was all the rage in South Philly when I was a kid.

I'm so sorry about Rudy. My dog lives with my ex and I visit, too, so I know how you stay tied to your old pets.

Mommanator-
I just hope that the $10 was found by someone who really needed it, or by a kid who felt like a king for a day because of it!

Pax-
I'm not much into mysticism, but catch this coincidence: I FOUND THE RING about an hour after you posted your comment!

Citizen of the World: Loss happens on many different levels, doesn't it? Divorce teaches you that the hard way.

oh Merci, I am so sorry about your doggie. I am sure he is now up in doggie heaven, running around to his heart's contents. My thoughts are with you.
