I guess we can all agree that this Summer sucked. On top of COVID’s effects on our lives, the building we lived at caught on fire on the night of May 22nd. A cooking accident in one of the units on the 2nd floor got all 3rd floor tenants trapped within a few minutes, forcing us all to jump from the 3rd floor. Yes, jump.
Everyone got hurt, of course. One person died (on the unit where the fire started). Both of my kitties died. It was heartbreaking to see the youngest cat body stretched on the floor, still. He truly was the gentlest and sweetest soul on Earth. The oldest cat was never found, but there is no way she could have escaped that inferno, no matter how smart that little one was.
Friday night, just past 11PM, we jumped off the living room window. Since then, I haven’t gone back inside the building. I lost everything. The place has been condemned and will be demolished soon…
I will share photos of the building some other time. Today, I’m sharing a photo from last Summer, when I went to the Catskills, NY, with a friend and my daughter. Was an awesome trip and a beautiful location. Can’t wait to visit it again!
Can’t believe Autumn is just around the corner. Where did this fucking year go?
