Thanks Barbara and Jess.

BF, Bratfink*, is comfortable and they are planning surgery. Things are going as good as possible right now.

Rusha-frusha-grrr cat. Just because the cupboards are currently empty doesn't mean you can play in them, especially while I'm trying to put stuff in them. And please, for the sake of my sanity, stop trying to sleep on my feet while I'm trying to get stuff done. Also, I know this is a new place but is it really neccessary to race into every closet I open and refuse to get out until you are done sniffing it. Again. I promise, not much has changed since the last time you sniffed it. And just because we don't have a table yet or chairs in here and therefore are sitting on the floor to eat doesn't mean we want your nose in our food. And since we're on the subject of food, a new home doesn't mean a new feeding time, or extra feeding times, or extra food. Furthermore, you may think it's fun to shoot out of all the new hiding places you've found and attack my feet but sooner or later you're going to get trampled and I'm only going to feel a little sorry for you. Finally, I know you love cathcing the spiders that caught a ride on the boxes, and I appreciate that you are killing them off for me, but please please please stop DROPPING THEM AT MY FEET! I get it, your a crazy skilled hunter but I'm an arachnophobe and you're going to give me a flipping heart attack! Just eat them and be done with it. Seriously furball, I love you but you're about to get yourself locked in the bedroom.

Ditto here. You have to know when to throw in the towel. Concentrate on one item. The wedding. For those folks who want their money, RIGHT NOW? They are more concerned with closing their books for the month of March than the fact that you are still in the grieving process. Concentrate of happy right now. Weddings are happy. Grieving is sadness. They don't mix very well. Tell everyone else they will have to wait until April. After the wedding take some time for yourself.

One thing to remember. You are on one end of that telephone. Your telephone. You pay that bill. Not the other person on the other end. Hang up. If you don't feel like talking on it, you don't have to. It is your phone. Rude? Sure. But is the other person being considerate of your feelings at this time in your life? Give yourself some slack. You deserve it.
