As if 2016 couldn’t possibly get any worse, after having lost my father back in May, we just had to put our family’s 12-year old Rottweiler to sleep after a 5 month battle with a combination of cancer and a slipped disc. Rest in peace, buddy.
Since then, my girlfriend and I have migrated our belongings and are now sharing the house with my mother. It feels like a family again, which is bittersweet given the circumstances. We have three cats, which now, in turn, have a house to wander around in instead of a studio apartment, so it’s not all bad news. Having them around seems to be helping my mom cope with having her entire world turned upside down in the span of six months. Animals are, indeed, magnificent creatures.
I’ve been fairly busy with the mini-move and I have a few exams this week, but hopefully I’ll find a little time to get some much needed gaming therapy in.
