The End of the Hamster Era

Well, Squeak passed away sometime on October 17th, 2011. He was my last Russian Dwarf Hamster that I was taking care of. First I bought Olly, then after Olly died, I bought two Russian Dwarfs to fill the void.

Fave Photo Fridays * Becky *

I am starting a new tradition here on my blog to include some of my Favorite Photos of a particular subject, whatever I choose that Friday.

Today I want to celebrate my best friend from high school – Becky. She passed away three years ago on June 13th. She is very much still loved and very much missed. Here are some of my favorites of her.

The Split

As my family already knows and most of my friends know, my relationship status has changed to single once again. After an almost three year span, the end was inevitable.

A Year

This day marks a year of Severe Depression for me.

I’ve had Depression for a long time now, known and been on medicine for it for at least 10 years now, but this past year has been especially drowning. November 12th, 2009 was the day I lost my job.

Last Moments with Olly

Yesterday, my buddy Olly, my Winter White Russian Dwarf Hamster, was acting funny. He fell asleep in my hand, which he never has done before. He felt lifeless and just tired.


And for some reason, my anxiety today is through the roof. I don’t know why. I wish I knew. Then maybe I could fix it and repair myself so I could go one with my day.
