The Good and the Bad and the Looking Forward and B

No photo today because the photo would be of my beautiful Niya.  She is no more.  She had probably been ill for a very long time, but she didn’t show it until the last couple of weeks.  So, after daily trips to the veterinarian for a few days, he did blood tests which revealed that my kitty was very ill.  Kitty chemo is not something I would consider for an 11 year old cat.  So on Monday morning, I loaded her into her carrier and took her for one last trip to the vet.  So sad, I thought I might fall apart.  But I didn’t.

I got the call last Monday, Dec. 28, with the job offer.  THE job.  Yay.  I got the job.  Thank God.  I start on Monday, Jan. 11.

I am very excited about the job.  And I am marveling at the fact that I was able to get a job (a good job) at the age of 64.  It is a miracle.

This morning I am taking a trial drive at rush hour to make sure I can get there in an hour.  It is 32 miles away, most of them on the most ridiculously traffic-y interstate highway.  One of those roads built in the 60s, with very little work since then.  Crumbling bridges, etc.

    I’m so sorry about Niya. I remember when you got her. ❤️
    Now, just for my own curiosities sake… Is this new job part time? Because I don’t want you to miss out on too much of your retirement fun. So I’m just wondering….
    Congratulations though!

    Sad for you about Niya. Having an animal is so soothing. And they are an endless source of entertainment.

    I hope that you enjoy the work on the job. Congratulations!
