Yesterday was incredibly symbolic for me. Yesterday the zoo officially closed its elephant program and sent our two Asian elephants to Oklahoma City Zoo.
Ironically, yesterday was also going to be my last day at Woodland Park Zoo. I agreed to stay on through Saturday to cover the Family Farm one more day, and also have the opportunity to say goodbye to three very special girls that have been a part of my life for four years. They are coming to visit for the sole purpose of saying goodbye to me, and I couldn’t refuse.
It’s incredibly symbolic that I leave the zoo with the departure of the elephants. Bittersweet. But it’s all for the best.
I’m in a bad space today. I didn’t deal with my emotions last night as well as I am capable. I drank a bit. Ate way more than I should have.
Chris isn’t here, but he comes home tonight. And I’m spending time with friends in healthy ways.
Meeting a buddy to walk/workout around Discovery Park in Seattle. And Game Night at another friend’s place this evening.
This feeling will pass. I will come out stronger for it to. But I’m wallowing right now.
Encouraging words are appreciated.
