You might be wondering what the thing above is. Let me tell you a story. This morning, something stirring in the dark woke me up. The sun wasn’t even up yet, but I was. I looked at the clock at it said 5:36 am. It started to get quiet again and I was falling back asleep and then I heard a little trill in the dark, the sound Chester makes when he jumps off of anything. Then I heard the sound of something being knocked around on the ground. Hm? What could this be? I knew. I knew before I even flicked on the light only to see my wire trees, which I had moved from my bookshelf to my bedroom dresser, on the floor. I hate that he tries to get them because they are sharp. I didn’t have my glasses on, so I didn’t see it at first, but I stepped on it. Yep, the thing in the picture above is my little felted bluebird, totally obliterated. Thank you Chester 🙂 Of course I wasn’t really mad, but he knew he did something wrong. It was actually pretty hilarious. He can do no wrong 🙂
Today was interesting. I was dreading going to work because a fellow coworker had to stay home to take care of a sick child yesterday. I, of course, anticipated the worst. I worried all morning because the individual didn’t come in until later. I kept imagining how they would come in spread germs everywhere or be sick at the office. It was horrible. I anticipated this until nearly 1 pm, which was when the person came to work. Of course, nothing happened, which is usually the case, but that’s where my mind went.
Even after the person arrived, I was still anticipating the worst. The anxiety was pretty overwhelming. I sent texts to my mom as a way to try to get some advice and have her to perhaps comfort me, which she always does. She told me to think about other things, which is honestly very difficult to do in these situations, which I’m sure all of you who also have an anxiety disorder know.
I was determined today to not let the anxiety ruin my day. So, you know what I did instead? I took out my phone and watched the video I recorded for my boyfriend of Chester just after I woke up and caught him red-handed. It is a funny video. Chester is standing in the corner of the doorway, looking sheepish. I would post it here, but I took it on Skype and I don’t think I know how to export it from the conversation. Also, I accidentally filmed my bra hanging on a chair 🙂 Probably TMI, but take my word for it, it was a hilarious video.
Even though Chester ruined my little, wool bird, he sure made my day 🙂
