How Fast Things Happen

Today was a rollercoaster.

I won’t lie, it was sort of a rough day.

One of my family’s cats (who we got when I was 10 years old) had to be put down somewhat unexpectedly.  Granted, she was getting pretty old- after all 16 ain’t bad for a cat.  But she was part of our family.  We loved that cat.

When she was a kitten, she’d slither under the covers after we got in bed and play with our feet.  It usually scared the crap out of us.  She grew into an incredibly affectionate cat that always wanted to sit in your lap and rub against your shins when you stood in the kitchen.

Of course, I’m sad she’s gone and I miss her, but I know we were incredibly lucky to have adopted her in the first place.  As my dad reminded me tonight, “better to have loved and lost…”

Needless to say, dinner was low key and easy tonight:

I threw some tin foil on a baking sheet and roasted a bunch of brussels sprouts and chickpeas on it.  I roasted those at 400° for about 45 minutes.   I also threw in a sliced chicken sausage at the end.

The easy part:  I just crinkled up the tin foil and tossed it after my food was done.  Much more manageable than actually rolling up my sleeves to clean.  After all, doing dishes is for chumps. 😉

But Two Buck Chuck is for geniuses.

Here’s to you, Mosey.

  1. Sorry for the loss of your cat, Megan. I like your dad’s perspective – very true. What a wonderful life she must have had with a family like yours. 🙂

    Good call on Two Buck, my friend. Thinking of you.

  2. That is so sad about your family pet! My dog is 10 years old and I tear up just thinking about the fact that he’s getting older. I hope you got in some good grieving time this weekend – 2 Buck Chuck helped kick it off right, I’m sure.
