**After the break you will find a picture of my new tattoo. All body parts are covered, but the picture is topless (breasts are covered, but there is no shirt on). I thought I would give a warning for those who find it “tasteless”**
Thank you everyone for the well wishes. It’s been hard, no lie. Even though it’s been a few weeks I still call for Odie every so often. Sometimes I still sit outside on the steps – in the fence where he would go out to use the bathroom – and cry. I plan to clean that fenced in area off and put a table and some chairs out there so I can have my own little place to hide.
I have the wood to make a marker for Odie’s grave. I’ve just been putting off painting it. I know that sounds stupid, but I don’t want to do it…I kind of hope this is just all a dream.
I honestly didn’t want to make this post so depressing, I guess I started this off wrong.
Since I don’t have Odie any more, I’ve been taking Stinky in the bathroom while I get a bath. This gives Stinky time to get a bowl of food to himself, which he likes because…he’s a pig. When he’s done eating he’ll lay on the clothes I put on the floor and sleep until I’m done – which is what Odie always did. Now the downside is every night around 9:30/10:00 Stinky finds me and cries until I get a bath. Really, every night he does it. I’ve started something bad.
As most of you know I brought a stray cat – well a cat a lady threw from her car – home at the end of June. Well, here she is now. She even has a name: Sheriff Callie. My niece named her after a cartoon she watches. When I brought the kitten home my niece was convinced it was hers. For the most part she gets along with Stinky. She does get to Stinky sometimes though. I call Stinky my grumpy old man – that explains it all! Haha.
The 4th (August) I went to Canton to spend the night with a friend. It was something well needed. I was able to get a snap of the new statute thingie they put downtown. In case you didn’t know Canton (Ohio) is where the Football Hall Of Fame is.
On the 8th (August) my mom, my niece and I went with a family friend out of town for the day to shop and eat.
While we were out of town shopping I bought my (step) nephew his birthday gift. I had to give it to him the next day because his party was that Saturday and I had to work so I would miss his party.
The weather for this summer has been…odd. I’ll just say odd. haha. Even with the odd summer weather I have made a few friends who visit my window.
On the 28th I had a day off work. Yes, I had a Friday off! So what did I do? I went and got a new tattoo!
I finally got my leopard spot tattoo and I’m so in love with it. All of my tattoos have reasons behind them, meaning to me. This one is going to be a reminder to always fight for animals. We are one on this planet. My next tattoo will be in October and I’ll have the same person going it.
Tonight I bought something I’ve been waiting to buy…
I know I haven’t been blogging like I used to, but I’m hoping to get back to it soon. Work just takes me down and makes me want to do nothing that involves anything besides bed. I suck at life right now.
