Ever have a day that's fairly crummy, but not because of anything that happened to you personally? I had one of those today.
My day wasn't so bad for myself, but my dear daughter had a perfectly awful day. While in the hospital recovering from thyroid surgery and wanting to go home, she learned that one of her beloved cats had been struck by a car and killed. To top it off, it's her birthday. And she lives in Australia, too far away for me to give her a hug.
It's just a sad, sad evening. :-(
