March 30th, 2008

When we were at Target today I saw an endcap with boxes and thought they were Valentine’s Day cards. “Wow,” I thought, “Valentine’s Day already?”

Then I realized they were fruit snacks.

But I was still confused about Valentine’s Day.

Several hours later, when going through the pantry candy, I just realized Easter was last week. V-Day comes before Easter.

Good Lord, where has the time gone?

the set

Last summer a kitten showed up on my next-door neighbors’ doorstep during a rain storm. Cute, cute, cute. They kept the kitten and named her Milo. Super cute.

When I went on my mail check today, my neighbor told me that Milo was recently hit by a car in front of their house. While she and her two young kids were outside.
I asked if the person driving stopped; she told me that when the driver saw the family watching, she took off very quickly.

I try very hard not to pass judgment on other people. I really do. I try to give them the benefit of the doubt. But seriously – what kind of horrible, terrible, soulless person keeps on driving when she sees small children witness her running over their cat?
