So, September. It's been both crazy busy and pretty uneventful.

The highlight was of course the Backstreet Boys concert - I liked them growing up but I was never a super fan. My friends were though, and we bought the tickets last November. It was a really, really good concert, and I actually really like their newest album.

Other than that, lots of cat time...

I managed to read a few books and even got in a couple of workouts. Dessert for dinner one night, sangria another, and a lovely gift from Bev.

In not so great stuff, I actually got in a car accident on the way to my friend's house before the concert. Thankfully, no damage and no real injuries, just had some good ol whiplash. Also, my cat back home died. She lived a good long life though, I got her when I was 13, maybe? 14? I don't remember exactly. I got her when she was just 3 days old, her mum had died so we had to bottle feed her and stuff. She was the ugliest thing you had ever seen in your entire life. Her name was Agatha. I did not name her, my boyfriend at the time's sister did, because she was the vet nurse that helped me take care of her. The name stuck and suited her. We used to call her Aggie the Alien.

In other stuff.... KC and I split up, we sold the house, he took Chelsea, I have Penny & Millie. He's moved out, I'm in the process but still at the house. We're still dealing with a few logistics and paperwork. I am not opposed to talking about it, but there's not a whole lot I want to say online where anyone can see it. I'm not afraid to say that I am handling it about as well as can be expected. I have good days and bad days, I have felt all the emotions. I go up and down. It is what it is, and there you go. I'm not trying to be flippant or vague, it is amicable though it was not mutual. Unfortunately, there's only so much one person can do when the other is done. I've accepted it and I am sure I will get through this.

I'm moving into my apartment slowly over the next few days so may not be able to get to everyone's posts immediately, but I will definitely get to them. Here's a few photos of it though if you're curious, in all its messy glory:

And a few more pictures of Chelsea because I tried to spend as much time with her as possible knowing she was leaving me. These are mainly for me, I know it's not terribly interesting to see 50+ photos of the same cat.

Chelsea loved hanging outside with me - she was the only one I could take outside, plop down in front of me and not worry (too much) about her running off. Isn't she pretty? She also loved hanging with me in the bathroom, I'd pick her up, throw her over my shoulder and she'd start doing the happy paws - I have permanent scratch marks on my shoulder. The last photo makes me laugh because that's so her - must rub head against everything.

Fluff monster...

She's the most photogenic of the cats - she stands out against everything, her eyes are gorgeous and she sits still the longest. I could just snap my fingers or tap my phone and she'd look up, like she was a cat model in another life. If she wanted to be picked up or put in your lap, she'd reach a paw out like hey, human, look how cute I am.

and a few more because why not.

Okay, last lot, this was yesterday, knowing she was leaving eventually and knowing I only had a couple hours left were completely different things. I smothered her with my love, she was probably sick of me by the time he came to get her.

Also, Penny is 7, Chelsea is 6 and Millie is 5... so for 5 years, we had 3 cats. This is the best photo I've gotten of the 3 of them, and yes, I was holding tuna up in the air. I think I might frame it.

So yeah, that's it from me. If you'd like to link up, please do so below:
