missing miss honey
It's 2:58 am and I can't stop coughing. I've been coughing since Thursday I think. We were all sick this weekend. I NEVER take cough medicine, but last night John downed some Robitussin and was singing it's praises 10 minutes later with no cough, so desperate, I thought I'd try it, just to get some sleep, and rest my throat. It didn't work. At all. And I can't sleep. John is sleeping AND not coughing. I'm going to try some Bartok root tomorrow. Anyone have any good or bad things to say about it?
To add to my already pathetic weekend, our kitty Miss Honey was hit by a car on Saturday. The lady who hit her followed us to the pet hospital and paid for everything. I carried her broken body in, her limp, and awake in a towel and handed her to the Doctor. X-ray's showed a broken back, both back legs and pelvis were broken as well. We had to put her to sleep. I brought her out and the kids said goodbye, and then I walked back and she passed away quickly with me whispering in her ear. I miss her. I still can't believe she is gone. I feel responsible somehow. Maybe we should have forced her to stay indoors even though since the moment we brought her home she wanted to jump and play outside. She was an indoor/outdoor kitty. I feel like I failed her. Miss Honey was the perfect cat for our family and we will miss her.
