After putting Sabrina to sleep, the weekend was sort of doomed to a bit of somberness from the start. We were both really crushed by Sabrina’s death and her loss was felt deeply by us both all weekend. Since I was on my cycle, we had to think of more creative ways than sex to distract ourselves from the sadness we were feeling.
Unluckily, Master was also on call this weekend, so when we got home from the vet, Master had to get right to work. Stupid phone calls. 🙁 I felt so bad for him. I mainly played video games while he was on the phone. There wasn’t a whole lot else to do. We got our grocery shopping done early that day because Master had gotten out of work early as a MLK day treat. It was nice to have him home with me. I always love any extra time I can get with him.
The next day I was feeling a bit better about Sabrina. Not happy, just in better spirits. It’s so hard listening to people tell me “She’s in a better place.” I don’t want to be rude and just say “Actually, I don’t believe in any of that, please knock it off with your religious stuff because it’s not helping right now, and never will…” but there’s a part of me that always wants to, when something really sad like this happens. I know that’s harsh, but, I respect your right to religion, please respect my right to my Atheism.
We’ve been slowly, painstakingly, working on the unpacking still. There is so much to do to get the apartment to the place we want it to be, but it looks better in here all the time, which is a relief. It’s not going to happen overnight, but it is good nonetheless.
We’ve been slowly working on regaining the strength in my foot. We went for a brief walk Friday and I only lasted 15 minutes before I got sore. Sunday we went for a hike on a trail and I lasted 30 minutes. Little by little I’m getting stronger.
To distract ourselves somewhat from the sadness we were dealing with, we set about planning our vacation in Vegas! We have a barebones itinerary. I am sure there’s a lot more we will do, but there are some things we absolutely do not want to miss, so we’ve sort of scheduled them in there. There’s plenty of time to do other things, should our energy hold out. There is really so much we’re planning on doing after our Sin in the City weekend, and we just can’t wait. We both are in terrible need of a fun getaway. Master already told me that he wants me to blog every day while we’re gone. I think the only time that’ll be really hard to blog is during the convention. Conventions always eat up your time like woah, but if it is what Master wishes then I will stay up late or get up early to get it done. We will see. I suppose it’s also going to depend on the WiFi in the hotel. We’re paying extra to make sure we have the Internet, but I have read some reviews of the hotel saying that even if you pay for the WiFi it’s hit or miss, so we’ll see.
Master has today off too! (Yay! Holiday!) And we’ve got a couple little things planned for this morning. I’m excited to spend the day with him. =^^=
