Okay, really, I'm lying. I love tv. Yup. I love my cop shows and my law dramas. I even find my self drawn into some of those reality-ish shows on A&E, like Intervention.
But this post is me working through an issue, so bear with me a bit longer.
My family likes to watch M*A*S*H. No problem. It's a good show. But the commercials...
I like Willie Nelson. I like the ASPCA. I like the Humane Society.
But when I see those darned commercials for the ASPCA and they have Willie singing You Are Always On My Mind.... in light of recent events... it was like a kick to the gut. I turned off the stove and walked out of the room in tears.
Sorry, but losing Rusty is still rather fresh.
I was in the middle of making supper when this darned commercial came on. DH saw it and tore all the blankets off the couch to find the remote to change it. When he succeeded and found me in the dining room trying to compose myself, he wrapped his arms around me and said, "Guess we wn't be watching that channel for a while."
I'm glad he cares and said that. Made me feel better.
I'm glad you took the time to read this. I know eventually I'll feel less upset, but not completely. My pets are my children.
And, yes, I hug them everyday. (Even when they stink).
