Couldn't sleep, good company via texting/calling friends at ungodly hours.
Busy Sunday, like usual.
Work was stressful, like usual... yet despite my lack of sleep I made decent time and was awake.
Went out to dinner tonight, not usual, but has been for the past month or so?
Get in the car after dinner, Addison says there's bad news.
I say someone died.
He said yes, Luna.
...One of Catarina's kittens was in a neighbors truck this morning, in the engine.
Which, he started, [around 9:30am, I was already at work] and stopped when he heard the kitten's screams.
He knocked on our door, Addison answered.
The neighbor asked Addison to identify the kitty.
Her neck was broken, she was limp, the back of her skull bloody.
It was Luna.
She was gone.
Addison buried her out in the hole, with her unborn siblings.
Luna was born around 7am June 5th.
Today is October 12th.
She lived a short life.
I just sat in the car for a while.
Finally went in, routine, let Fox out back, went to play with the kitties.
It's weird to see Mama Catarina, Mouse, the orange boys, and Garren [male name but a girl, now the only.] without Luna.
Fox still played.
Kittens still wanted pets, and lounged about.
The world still goes on.
It's simply depressing.
In a way... I'm relieved.
Luna wasn't fully black, she had some beautiful tuffs in her fur.
She was the absolute softest of all her siblings.
She was the cuddle bug of all of them.
..Just two days ago, she was chasing her own tail in the circle where her siblings are...now..shes joined them.. its just... upsetting.
Anyway, a bit okay with it, as with Halloween coming up I would have worried for her safety.
She's resting now, I won't have to.
I'm downhearted to have only this as our current Halloween decor by the front door though:

Jason the roommate since the apartment has been voluntarily unemployed for two months.
Got a new roommate, Frankie, in March.
After three, going on four years of visiting a doctor, specialist/endocronologist NOW they think I have Hypothyroidism, we'll see.
My Great Uncle passed away.
His wake was today, he was cremated.
He was 72.. or 74?
Oldest on my dad's side of the family, now, making my dad the elder of the family.
Our life expectancy is in our 40's roughly, anything beyond that's a bonus.
Dad had no sons to pass a legacy of his last name, so, our genealogy is dying.
My twin has a son, but is married, her husband's last name is living on & they are having a 2nd child.
My husband was laid off on Friday.
"Nothing personal, its due to financial reasons"
We do not have children, but have a Chihuahua named Fox, and have fostered a cat who keeps having litters.
just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary, and Addison's birthday is April 3rd.
My birthday is May 3rd.
.....my hand is getting better, the nail is still thin, I've tried to get back into practice in art.
If we still have an internet connection in the next few months, I hope to work on some art soon I've owed over the past year.
My husband was making between $12 then $15 an hour, I make $8 and get less after taxes, insurance etc.
I covered the cost of food, gas, and other things.
My husband paid for bills, credit debt, our mortgage, the car etc.
Now.... I... don't know what will happen.
Frankie and I are the only ones with income for the time being, life is uncertain.
