Today I hate that I have a staff meeting in about an hour and I won't get any work down for most of the day because of it.

It is just about Summer, the longest day of the year this Friday. Then the days start getting shorter and winter is just around the corner. So YAY!
+1 for this!!

The mayor of north Ridgeville ohio
the police chief of north Ridgeville ohio
The so-called "humane officers" of North Ridgeville ohio.

No, I don't live in this shit town, nor will I ever, but this totally fucking infuriates me. Just another reason to get out of this idiotic shithole they call Ohio.

Humane Officer Accused of Shooting Litter of Kittens in Front of Kids

FWIW the local SPCA is going ape shit on them over it.

The rain. Omg stop the rain. This is seriously getting out of hand. First it was Calgary and the surrounding area's that flooded, and now it looks like bits and pieces of Edmonton are as well?? When is it going to stop!? I can count on ONE FINGER how many days of sun with NO RAIN, that we've had. Oh my goodness, just stop already!

Ugh I'm so sorry Been there myself many times. Including roadside at night in the rain nearly getting clipped myself trying to help a large doe hit by an asshole who clearly didn't care they left an animal suffering to their death.

What I've learned over the years - especially when despite your efforts, the animal doesn't make it - is this: Every being, whether human or animal, has their own path. It may be different from what we perceive. The best we can do is what we can, with genuine effort for that being.

It may have been that what the dog you helped "needed" in his life experience was to know what it felt like to have someone help, care, and try on his behalf. Soul path complete for this lifetime, perhaps. It's something I felt and saw in her eyes as the doe looked up at me, her head in my lap, as the rain poured down and cars whizzed behind me while waiting for the cops to arrive with their guns.

What happened with the dog may have created a shift in awareness for you or the others involved. These bigger picture things are not without additional "benefit" that way.

It may sound like an out-there concept but when you consider there are larger things at play in the Universe, it's plausible. You were there for a reason.

Just yesterday while at work a baby bird fell from a nest into a horse's stall (horse is one of "my" horses). Not an unusual occurrence this time of year. Eyes not yet open but seemed unharmed. A second one was already dead in the aisle. Anyway, I took the little one to a wildlife rescue minutes away. How could I not? I was there for a reason. It happened in one of my horses' stalls for a reason. A couple of the people from the barn said it was "more than they would do." What? Why. People blow my mind sometimes. But perhaps next time those people might remember there is something they can try to do.

One more thing. Most veterinary offices are closed Sundays but around my area at least there are emergency clinics open always. It might be something to look into in the event you are faced with this again.

Today I hate rumble strips on the side of the highway. We've got some construction that forces bike commuters off the bike path and onto the highway for a stretch, and last Thursday I was going through that section, and looking behind me for traffic, when I hit the rumble strip funny, flipped over my handlebars, and landed on my face. It's not pretty. Could have been worse, though. Wasn't wearing a helmet and managed not to rattle my brain, and I didn't break any bones leave any teeth on the highway. Really freaked out a few people who saw it happen, though. Got the comment from one of them that they'd never seen anyone hit the ground that hard!

Aaaaaaaaaa!
We've got a nominee for the next "not my fucking job" award! Like every summer, we went up to the alpine cabin to stack up the wood logs for the comming season, the local wood company delivered. Coud have freaked out when we approached the cabin. Well now, husband thinks I'm too demanding. Uhu... really? Who doesn't see within a split second, why it isn't a brilliant idea to unload a dumper truck of logs RIGHT AT THE STABLEDOOR THAT OPENS TO THE OUTSIDE? YOU DONT NEED AN ACADEMIC DEGREE TO SEE THAT!

They just wanted to make sure you didn't procrastinate stacking the firewood.
