I jinxed myself last week. I was on the phone with a friend and I said something to the extent of, "2011 is just a bust, nothing horrible has happened, but I'm just ready for it to be over."
Careful what you wish for, kids.
Long story short, my parents were out of town over the weekend and I was greeted Friday morning by the family cat showing up at the house with a very mangled leg as a result from a run in with a car.
Not how I was planning on spending the weekend.
What started out as a very grim situation has turned into a long, slow recovery. The cat (Del) is at home now, with stitches, staples, and antibiotics, along with boatloads of vet bills.
... but he is resting, and healing.
