I think it’s safe to say that this weekend is probably one of my more difficult… Monday it will be 1 year since my dad passed and to make things more horrible.. Sebastian died on Friday. He was 2yrs old which people keep telling me is nice long life for a male beta but.. it just devastated me. I didn’t see this coming in the least… Thursday night I fed him as usual and he acted completely normal… but Friday he was at the bottom of his tank and completely gone. I couldn’t bring myself to ‘flush him’.. that just isn’t me. You expect your kids to be attached to their little critters but I never expected myself to be so attached to a fish. I can’t bring myself to empty his tank but every time I look at it, I’m filled with emptiness. I miss him. He was a good fish.
Sergey asked me if I thought we should get another… but I don’t know. I guess we’ll see. Either way.. I miss him terribly.
