Gods...I rarely check Facebook and when I do the first thing I see is that an old friend whom I haven't been in touch with for a few years passed away. She was so young, barely out of her twenties. My friend who made the post had been her partner for many years but he did not say how she had passed. What a shit end to my day.
That really is a "shit end to a day". I feel with you. Reminds me of a class reunion some years ago, the first (and last) I've ever been to. I had lost contact to all my former classmates over the years - I'm from a village without a lot of opportunities and except for one, all of the people had spread throughout (mostly) Germany. There were quite a few empty chairs. Car accidents, a drug overdose, missing (not even the parents know a thing). Left me with a strange feeling.
As for my bitching: Last Sunday I somehow destroyed my back. Cleaned my little one after she had taken a shit and when I came up *big ouch*. Have been on painkillers the whole week, but those make me drowsy and are getting to my stomach. And even the double dose (1200 mg Ibuprofen) can't stop the pain. I got a date for physiotherapy but it's only next Wednesday night. And I can't call in sick since we a few days before the deadline of a big project that I'm responsible for and where there a still a thousand little things that need to be taken care of.
