Some days I just can’t take living on this planet with other humans.

Yesterday afternoon was one of those days.  I ran out to get gas for the lawn mower and litter for the cats.  Before even getting in the truck, I had an encounter with a group of school children that made me angry, broke my heart and had me fighting back the tears.  When I finally got in the truck, I had another encountered less than two blocks from my house, with two adults standing in the middle of the street.  I held it together until I got home.  I didn’t unload the car, just went to find the hubs and cried as soon as I got to him.
