Despite being busy because of the double-mail day, it was a pretty good work day, for all that. I may have a little of the cold Barb has, though; although not as bad. I just feel a little achy and tired (oh, SO tired).

I'm making cupcakes for tomorrow's United Way bake sale, though, so I HAVE to go in.

Yesterday Silhouette had his checkup and booster vaccines. The doctor (not our regular vet, but the other one in the office) recommended blood tests, but unlike Dr. Temple, he neglected to tell me how much it would run, so I blithely said "yes, indeed," and then nearly passed out when I got the bill. (One nice thing -- once upon a time I wouldn't have had the money at all, but this time it just made me whimper and hand it over. A little less for next month's vacation, alas.) Anyway, Silly's lost more weight (sigh) and although they gave him "cats love the flavor!" glucosamine tabs for his arthritic hips, he won't touch anything I've put the powder in yet (neither his favorite Fancy Feast Salmon Flavor nor milk, which he loves) -- I have to get some sour cream and see if that works.

Another "nothing much" picture.

This is my wine rack. Barb and I found it at a consignment shop near here and paid $15 for it. I try to keep it reasonably well-stocked; I went from thinking I didn't like wine at all to being somewhat daring and liking to try new things, but I tend to lean toward sweet and semi-sweet whites, although white zins and roses are often quite nice. I prefer white Lambrusco to red (as is often the case, I seem to prefer the less healthy option... milk chocolate, white bread, etc., etc.)

It's getting warm again. I turned the air conditioner back on. (This was partly caused by having the oven on to bake cupcakes, and partly caused by it getting up to 98 degrees again.)

Hormones are kicking my ass. How long does stupid menopause last, anyway?

Only a month until Disneyworld. Squeee.

It pretty much started (best I can tell) sometime last year, but the worst of the actual symptoms started when I was in Florida, so very nearly a full year now. I came back feeling "sick," lost ten pounds, promptly gained twenty, and have spent the last year struggling to keep it back in the middle between the two (and then there's all the REST of the symptoms!!!).

I know for mom the worst of it lasted about 3 years

What! When? Who? Where?

If you give me dates I might be able to meet up!

That's right, we'll be in your neck of the woods!!!

Barb and I will be staying at the Caribbean Resort (with my mom) from November 14 - 17, with 4-day hopper passes (and then boarding the Disney Wonder for a 3-day Caribbean cruise, even -- I do love my mom!). If at any time in those four days we can meet up for lunch or dinner, that would be AWESOME!!!

Maybe we can hook up w/you, too!

Poor Silly. I'm grateful that Dickens gulps down his wet cat food and doesn't mind the glucosamine.

Speaking of which, does Dickens like "Authority" brand? I have several cans left and so far Silly seems to dislike all their flavors. *le sigh*

I've never tried him on it.
Oct. 15th, 2010 04:08 am (UTC)
Well, I can give you a can and we can see.

Sympathy for the vet bill! Miss Blonde Dog is having her teeth cleaned today, and the estimated bill... [sigh]

[hugs hugs]

Ah, the teeth cleaning! Cairo needs that.

Why do we have three pets again?
