For a person who is "on vacation," I certainly seem to have more to do than is reasonable. For what it's worth, everything on my calendar is/was there because I either penciled it in myself and felt good about getting it done or because it was something I really wanted to do. But it has certainly sped up the Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer. I think that a Wednesday Night Bullet Post with all it's random haste is just about perfect for tonight!
*Temperatures topped out here at 100 degrees yesterday.
*Unnecessary. Very, very unnecessary.
*Also unacceptable and unappreciated.
*Today was significantly cooler, thank you very much. Didn't even hit 90.
*Close. But no cigar. Much more comfortable.
*I was almost grateful to be getting a bone density scan and mammogram yesterday.
*This allowed me to overlook some of the less pleasant aspects of the morning.
*I turned the sock heel yesterday, too. And picked up the stitches for ongoing sockage.
*Then the yarn just got too darned sticky and I had to put it away.
*Quick trip to the farmer's market for the weekly Visit With The Vegetables this morning.
*Not much there when you go late.
*But I was meeting my parents and extended family for lunch and didn't want to kill too much time.
*Got some cukes 'n onions.
*Gonna make some relish if all goes according to plan.
*Salad if plans go horribly awry.
*No veggie pix this week because I forgot.
*Pet store is right next to the farmer's market.
*New cat carrier needed. The Very Complicated Kitty has to go to the vet tomorrow.
*There will be no repeats of our last car trip together. Leather seats still crying in pain and fear.
*Forty bucks for the new carrier.
*Will be dropping another sixty or seventy tomorrow to cover medications and prescription edibles.
*Cat was "free," as is the post-adoption check-up.
*New definition of "free..."
*The Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty loves his new brother.
*He does not love the new feeding situation which requires that there be no kibble in sight.
*Not even a crumb. I try to sneak him some, but the VCK can hear the sound of clattering kibbles from a mile away.
*Fat cats don't need kibble. Fat cats with struvite crystals need it less.
*Fat cats don't care.
*Fat cats want kibble.
*The VCK is a Certified 'Fraidy Cat.
*We are developing a list of Fearsome Objects.
*Things like shoes, soda bottles and cat toys.
*He found one that he really loves, though. No idea where it came from.
*Don't even remember buying it.
*Not surprised that it's his Most Favoritest Thing, though.
Stuffed Turkey Leg. Figures...
*He also played with the AGK's beloved dollar store cat cave this morning.
*Which is weird because he is scared of it since the AGK put it on his head and chased him around a few days ago.
*I stocked up on cat caves the last time the dollar store had them.
*I have twelve.
*Plenty to go around.
*So far this summer, I've made one vet trip, gone to the dentist, made another appointment with the vet, made another appointment with the dentist, gotten the squishy/scanner tests done, visited with the family twice and adopted a Very Complicated Kitty.
*There's other stuff, too. I just can't remember it all...
*I need a vacation.
*But first, I need to get my mojo back up again because tomorrow's trip to the vet is not going to be pleasant.
*It's not so much the appointment I'm dreading.
*It's getting the squalling, squirming cat into the carrier.
*Next week is Sit At Home And Do Nothing Week.
*Make a note of it.
And now I must bid you all a good evening. It is almost time to feed the beasts. This requires that I set up two separate feeding areas. One consists of "normal" food that must be guarded and the other features "prescription food and smooshed up anti-anxiety medication" that must also be guarded because a certain portly siamese would be very happy to trade with his brother.
