So this morning I decided to put in my 2 weeks notice for my job. I am a merchandiser and have to drive all over and lift heavy things. I was ready to quit months ago...then getting pregnant made my anxiety go up because of how physical it is. I have been trying to find another job for a while, but so far no luck. I have to work due to paying off my school loans.

So I was feeling stressed and somewhat relieved about the decision. Then this afternoon my cat passed away right in front of me. She went to lay down to rest, and then 20 secs later she was gone. She was only 8. Luckily my son wasn't home as I was a mess. I am glad she wasn't in pain, but still really shocked and upset. Dang pregnancy hormones!

I'm sorry you're having a tough day Try to stay positive about your job search! Things will work out.

And I know it's tough to lose a pet that's been a part of your family for so long, but really, I couldn't think of a more peaceful way to go.

Oh, I'm so so sorry I just had to put our 12 year old Boxer down on Wednesday and I'm still a mess over it. It's hard.

As for the job, sounds like it's a good decision and I'm hopeful that you can find something MUCH better for you soon.

I am feeling a little better today. Thanks for all of your kind words and thoughts. Still shocked over my kitty. My son waved and blew kisses to her last night towards the sky, and then it sunk in and he started crying. I took her to a 24 hour clinic last night to be cremated and I was able to say goodbye. I am going to paint an urn for her ashes later this week. Really thankful she wasn't in any pain...and that I wasn't at work so I could be there for her last moments.

I think having a few weeks off will be nice to relax a little. Now it means we can actually go somewhere for our Anniversary as before I was working every weekend.
