Today was a bad start day. My father and I had gone shopping for groceries. He said my breath smelled awful; when I walked straight, he walked crooked and we collided and he thought I was cutting him off, we shouted and for the rest of the trip, it was an awkward silence that could have been, in my father's mind, reason enough to say Mercury was in retrograde.

We smoothed things over and eventually got back to agreement.

Tomorrow, he gets the pleasure of having a camera snaked down his throat for an examination. Some time later, he'll endure a camera up the butt. The doctors are trying to rule out anything serious. But he'll at least get the pleasure to eat a box of popsicle to ease the scratching.

So I am concerned about him.

He also pointed out more grays; the oldest of trees (600+ years old) in New Jersey was dead and felled in preparation for storm season, local legend say that George Washington would consider the tree prime shade spot on his lunch breaks, and to counter, I told him of Dutch Harbor's Bald Eagle Problem. 800 eagles, ready to attack. The local post office is handing out big sticks and helmets so people fare better when getting the mail.

Horrible, just horrible. A friend of mine that I chat with on Skype apparently tried to commit suicide. Someone she knows sent me a message saying they were taking her to the hospital, but I'm really worried.

Every part of me wants to believe there's a darkness we need to feel for the brightest light to be seen and felt inside.

Annoyed, frustrated, pissed off and all those other not-so-nice things.

Out of the 4 rescued guinea pigs that I've taken in over the past few years, I'm down to one and his fate will be determined tomorrow morning. The first pig I lost a few years ago. I don't know why she crashed. The second one I lost this past December was to a bladder stone. The third one I lost last week was from the same cause and I suspect the one pig I have left has the same thing as he's acting like the other two prior to having them put down.

Alfalfa has always been on the 'Do not feed' list when it comes to guinea pigs, rabbits, ect... due to the calcium content. There is a long list of veggies that should also not be fed or done so sparingly for the same reason. I've avoided all these things and yet I'm still losing them. WTF! I've talked to my vet about this issue over and over again and she insists that I fed Oxbow pellets which when reading the ingredients list, it is loaded with calcium. I also have a rabbit that is fed the rabbit version of the timothy hay based Oxbow pellet and now I feel like I'm sitting on a frickin' time bomb. When is she going to crash due to excessive calcium?

I've spent over 17 years taking in peoples' unwanted pets of all species, shapes and sizes. While I have no regrets doing it, I'm not doing it anymore. I'll stick with my planted fish tanks and houseplants...

Feeling crushed by my month ahead.

After accounting groceries and household items bought in advance, I am left with $90. The fact my stomach is calling the shots is not that much fun. I also have to budget money to save for the bet my mother and I agreed upon.

I also have to account for my Mother's Day gift and my CD and amiibo card\figure collection. At most, I can get one CD, one card and one figure and still have money to save.

It's been almost a whole year since my grandfather died from cancer, and I still haven't recovered from that. This month was the time when he got worse, and I couldn't do anything! Maybe that is why I've been feeling horrible these days, without the mood to do anything, and wanting to cry all the time? He's the main reason I'm still alive, despite having a lot of reasons to commit suicide, because he was always there when I needed help, and thanks to him, my english is pretty good too. If my mood doesn't improve in the next days, I think I'm going to leave my studies for the next year and go to a psychologist, because I can't focus my mind at all if I'm depressed.

Velvetina, (((((Hugs)))))). Saying goodbye to people and animals that we love is one of the really hard parts about living. I'm so sorry for your loss. That you are still mourning after only a year does not surprise me at all. It can take a few years to get to the point where the memories bring comfort instead of pain. What you're experiencing is normal and it might be a good idea to seek help from a grief counselor or support group.

@Velvetina, As anniversaries of deaths approach, especially the first and second year, it can get harder to cope. If you think you need help, by all means get it. But talk through your decision to quit school with the counselor first. Often after the date passes, the person does begin to feel better and can function properly again.

Lucky the Queen of Hearts didn't have her way.

As you may know, my mother is more pragmatic in living life and because me and my father are more human in approach.

My mother doesn't like to be short changed in money. Although I got off paying a quarter of the owed debt, she expects me to pay the remainder in June.

My mother in the past was the type who would react in a manner my father best describes as you having your head bit off by her and your ass lit on fire all the same. She didn't get mad like that. She wasn't​ going to yell at me, but her tone was serious. No point at yelling at me, it only makes me run away from the noise.

I also should mention that I bought a refurbished new Nintendo 3DS XL direct from Nintendo, having it overnighted. All sales final.

So, I have rode the ragged edge of disaster today. I have $75 for grocery shopping. It can't get any worse than knowing you owe money.

My dad's latest joke about his GI tract issues is he was abducted by aliens and he's now pregnant. Funny, he's not into The Sims. Better not question the family psychosis. We're all mad here.
