autopilot
Because when you think that you can’t take anymore, that your body might implode because this! 2008! it can’t get any crappier four months in, what with your father dying and all the other left of happy that has chosen to dump itself in your lap, you find out that it can indeed get worse. Like finding that where your cat’s leg used to be, there’s a new lump under the skin instead, something the vets warned you might again rear its ugly head. And then you realize you can take more that you thought, and that you don’t go into cardiac arrest when it happens. You simply just keep going through the fucking motions.

Well, shit.

When you're going through the motions, don't forget to drink wine.

Blogger Rachel said...

I hope that things start to get better...Thinking of you and like nic said, don't forget to drink wine.

Blogger Pare said...

Well crap; just CRAP.

Hang in, lady.

Blogger Heather B. said...

Hey! So I'm guessing you might be up for a drink sometime soon. Like say, Wednesday or Thursday-ish?

Blogger Chantel said...

You have a shitdamnmotherfuckershit situation. Jump up and down, yell it at the top of your lungs. It won't help the actual problem but it might make you feel better.

Blogger janet said...

oh man I am really sorry. I am kinda pissed at the universe for you.

Blogger YCCM'S' said...

The bonus for having already endured is that it makes future endurance easier. Life! Ha! Wheeee!

There's nothing quite like being fate's spittoon, though, is there? Good times.

Blogger Melliferous Pants said...

Fuck 2008.

Blogger Raz said...

2008 just needs to end, already.

Actually, maybe the the next 8 months will have some good stuff? The pattern says no, but my heart says "oh please".

When life pushes me to the edge, I often fantasize about the following scenario:

Me. A pretty stack of plates (symbolizing all things that I hate - likely men). A tremendous shattering of said plates on the ground. Me. A satisfied smile.

I have some of my ex's plates, if you feel the need to do some shattering. Hope things get better!

Blogger Sizzle said...

Well, shit.

:(

Blogger Gwen said...

Well, that? Sucks. I'm sorry, Kris!

Blogger FoodRockz said...

As the father of two cats . . . my closest companions . . . I feel for you. I have no wisdom or advice to share. Sometimes life just sucks. But without the sad we wouldn't recognize the happy. My your life take a sharp turn for the happy ASAP!

Ouch...hang in there :(

Blogger Washington Cube said...

Been there, been there, been there when it just gets worse...and worse..and worse...and then some numbnuts (but good intentions) friend says, "It can't get any worse." Lesson I've learned? Yes. It can. It can always get worse, past worst. Cynical? Nope. Pragmatic from lessons learned.

Blogger Melina said...

sorry buddy.

Blogger 1218Blog said...

that sucks! i know the feeling. this has been the worse year of my life, hands down! i keep saying to myself it can only go up from here. i hope yours gets better.

Blogger KB said...

Oh my god, I'm so sorry. :(

Blogger Megan said...

I just smacked the universe in the face for you. And kicked it in the balls (assuming it has a face and balls). This isn't fair. I'm sorry.

Blogger KlevaBich said...

No. No, no, no. This is not happening. Wake up, Kris. It's a bad dream, and it will end any minute now.

Please let this have a happy ending.

Blogger Paige Jennifer said...

(insert loud cursing spree here)

Blogger Beth said...

I'm sorry to hear that Kris. That's just shitty. Hang in there - it will get better! Promise!

Blogger WildbillthePirate said...

Kris,

That Sucks! Perhaps it's nothing. You and I both know that loving a 3 legged cat isn't easy. Life has a way of compensating; or at least it feels that way. Kiss the little furry for us all, will you?

Blogger JordanBaker said...

Noooooooo.

Blogger MereCat said...

Oh you so don't need this now. I'm a catmom too and it breaks my heart when kitties suffer. I'm hoping for the best for you.

Blogger Heather said...

oh Kris... I'm sorry.

Blogger bleeding espresso said...

:( Just :(

Blogger TrappedInColorado said...

Kris,

You commented on my Once post again. I read you everyday and feel complete empathy for your sorrows. I know what you are going through. If my magic wand was not in the shop I would use it on you and your feline bestest friends. I am sending you good thoughts. Peace

Blogger WanderingGirl said...

Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Blogger kerrianne.org said...

I so wish I could hug you right now. Or at least buy you a really strong margarita. Thinking of you.

Blogger ETK said...

Oh Kris, I'm so sorry.
