The Sunday Currently // 7

Our Panda dog died this week; Friday is my guess because that’s the day she didn’t come home. My mom didn’t find her ’til Saturday early evening and I got the message while Joey and I were on our way to Wanderland. It sucked.

Panda was an old girl (she was an adult when we adopted her in 2006/2007) and I’m hoping that that’s the reason she passed away.




American Girl on Saturn by Nikki Godwin. It has good reviews on Goodreads so I am hopeful.


This blog entry and then I have to work on some content plans (what else is new?). I really need to manage my time better.


To the hum of the AC and the neighbor’s dog barking.


About things. Well, more like worrying. I am constantly plagued by work-related anxiety and Joey likened me to one of those workaholic dads whose stress tends to affect everyone.

I’m not even a workaholic, I’m just constantly freaking out about everything.


Nothing. I’ve got a runny/stuffed nose from crying about Panda.


I got to see Panda one last time before she left us. Also wishing she didn’t suffer.


This week treats me (ok, all of us) kindly and that Joey and I have time to catch the new X-Men movie before the weekend.


The Carly Rae Jepsen 2013 tour shirt. It’s Joey’s, not mine!


This photo of Panda from 2008.

Look at how her two front paws are tucked underneath her, just like a cat! That little gray puppy is our CB, which means he is now 6-years old. I hope he lives for another 6+ years. :(


To finish everything I need to do tonight so I can go back to bed and watch a bit of Mad Men before sleeping.


Rest. Wanderland really wiped us out and even though Joey and I clocked in early (I think we were home by 3am) and woke up past noon, I’m still feeling really tired.

I could also use a massage. It’s instances like this that I wish I still lived in Quezon City and its 24-hour home service massages.




I hate knowing that I’ll never see Panda again or that I’ll never hear her scratching the floor outside my window (that weird girl!). She was old but she seemed healthy/fine so I really can’t find comfort in “she’s in a better place.” At this point, I’m just really hoping it wasn’t a painful death.

    I’m so sorry about Panda. :( It sucks to lose a pet like that. Our dog also vanished and we found him dead days later. I cried for days. Hope you’re feeling better.

    So sorry about Panda, Helga.

    That t-shirt is super cute and goes nicely with your tat. Also advance Happy Birthday! I still remember your 18th! :))
