Just things

Morning woes: As I headed south down 28th street this morning, I saw a little black-and-white kitty who looked as though he’d been hit by a car; he was sitting up, his back end in the street and his front legs up on the curb, looking around and obviously trying to drag his hind end up onto the sidewalk; I couldn’t stop, but I almost turned around, then I saw a nice-looking man walking on the sidewalk toward the kitty and I hoped hoped he would stop and help the poor thing, and then I felt bad for NOT going back…

Then I went to the gas station (one of the reasons for my hurry), and tried to buy gas. I blanked on my PIN because my other bank sent me a new card, and despite the fact that I have been using the old PIN for many years, I kept entering it wrong until the transaction was declined; then when I figured it out and tried with the CORRECT PIN, the card was declined. I’ll probably get an email from ING saying someone was trying to use my card. *sigh* Fortunately, I have half a tank, I just don’t like letting it get lower than that.

Then this afternoon at Sprouts the same card wouldn't work. Damn it, that was what I was afraid of. ING has great security protection, but sometimes the honest user is simply FLAKY...

My eye hurts. My allergies have been BETTER the last few days, but apparently not perfect.

I keep thinking about that "throw 50 things away" thing. I just don't know where to start. Clutter, get thee gone! (I pick up something and think, "I remember why I bought/got this/who gave it to me/why I wanted it in the first place" and can't get rid of it...)

Mom called last night. I guess we're going on another cruise in November. Whee! A shorter one, this time, Eastern Caribbean, aboard the Carnival Freedom. I wish we'd go on the "Country Cruise," which I discovered a few weeks after I came back from the last one (Dale was on board, and I saw the listing at his website!)... of course, I don't now if he'd be there again.

I've been very, very tired this week -- I tried to get up yesterday and today for a workout, but that wasn't happening. At least they say that rest is as important for weight loss as exercise is...

And just 'cause... Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

I hope he's okay. I worry.

Same here, just slowly and without much focus (bad me!).

Oh poor kitty! *sending good thoughts for all the kitties out there*

And yeah -- I've done the "what's my password?" dance too many times...I wish I could me-proof my life sometimes.

Yay more cruise!

I've been super super tired, too. It's actually not that atypical, but I do wish I were getting through my "things to do" list faster...

I always hate seeing the babies out there on 28th Street -- too much traffic, silly beasties NEVER stay up on the grass where they belong!

Urgh, passwords! And our work computers don't even let you use one you've used before, and we have THREE separate things we have to log into daily!!! Right now each of them (having different set times) have a different one, and it's making me crazy!

Good luck at the "list"!

I know. I fretted all day. I worry so about the silly critters, out on the street. I should have gone back. (I've scooped cats off the street before, although the prognosis isn't generally good news.)

Poor kitty! Worse was when we were in a car being driven by a friend and one cat chased another out right under the wheels with no way to stop before it was too late. She was too broken up to check the kitty so Steve had to go. He said it probably never felt anything, and I've always hoped he told the truth. I know how bad he felt when a bird flew right into his windshield and I'm always just glad he wasn't the one driving. I hope this kitty had better luck.

I couldn't remember the log in for my cc online and after trying to have the system e-mail it twice and not getting it, I called customer help and got some b*tch who said they'd sent them and couldn't possibly give it over the phone, so sorry. Called back, next lady was friendly and gave me enough of a clue that I could remember it. Sigh... I need to write them all down and hide 'em around the house...

I can never stand seeing cats out on the road where they shouldn't be. I want to rescue all of them. One morning I did stop and scoop up a little fellow that had been hit and was still alive; we locked him in the bathroom and Barb took him to a vet's later. Last we knew he was okay, but he was wild, so I never knew. At least I did what I could!
