Today's good thing

Today's good thing: it was a nice day, despite the nasty weather. I intended to get up earlier, but the rain sounded so soothing I ended up sleeping until 8:30. I did a load of laundry and made breakfast, then J and I watched tv and cuddled the babies until I had to get ready for the baby shower for my coworker and partner in crime LaToya.

The shower turned out great. We had a lot of fun and LaToya and Carlos got some lovely gifts. And the food! Someone brought tamales, which I love. There was a seafood pasta salad and a grape salad that were delicious. And punch. I love shower punch!

Sadly, I had to stop by Walmart(cat food for Sam and the other inside babies) and Dollar General(that lickable crack cat treat that Fitz, Jem, and now Bucky love.

Today's good thing

Today's good thing: work wasn't bad, and once again, most of my customers were nice. What's up with that?

Sam is continuing to improve. I gave her bits of my dinner, and when another cat approached, she growled at them. She weighs all of maybe 3 or 4 pounds.

Today's good thing: the very best thing is that Sam is home and feeling better. She's napping a lot, but she has eaten, and pooped, and did a little exploring.

Work was super busy. It made the day go by fast, though. I changed all my endcaps to holiday. In between helping tons of customers, but by some miracle, most of them were really nice.

Today's good thing: except for a few annoying customers, it wasn't a bad day.

And J talked to the vet: Sam will be back in Hazlehurst tomorrow and we can bring her home. I can't wait to spoil her!

But can we talk about this cold? Couldn't we get a little autumn before we jump straight into winter?

Tombstone

I watched this. Again. It's one of those rare movies that is perfect in every aspect, and I can watch it over and over.

It's full of good acting, but no one shines brighter than Val Kilmer. This is truly his best work ever.

Today's good thing

Today's good thing: work wasn't horrible, except for the mod from hell, AKA the cough and cold mod. It's 4 sections, and nearly everything in three of them moved. I did one section yesterday and the mod team did 2 sections today, then I did the last one after lunch.

Also, it's freaking cold! I came home, covered up my flowers, found the electric blanket and put it on the bed, and found some long pants to wear tomorrow.

But the very best thing is that I called the vet and Sam is much better. Her temp is down, and she's eating and drinking. They still can't tell about her eye yet. The plan now is, they'll transfer her over here Thursday and we can bring her home.

Today's good thing

Today's good thing: I'm hard put to find one. I was worried about Sam all day, and it was a Monday - - lots of "overstock" and my cough/cold/allergy mod still wasn't done. I managed 1 section today.

The vet called just now. They're keeping Sam in Alma for now(there was no vet at the office here today, so he had to take her over there). Her hydration is better and her eyes are draining, but her temp is still at 104. They'll transfer her over here when she's better.

And to further complicate matters, they're planning to send my uncle home ON Thanksgiving. Not the day before or the day after. I'll be at work, but everyone else will want to be with their families.

Today's good thing

Today's good thing: well, it was not a super day here. I slept until 8:30, and three of the cats slept with us all night. Jem between me and J, Fitz either at my feet(making it impossible to turn over) or in the crook of my arm. Squeaky slept all over.

We had breakfast and I got the garbage ready for pickup and it somehow ended up being after 1pm before I got outside. J came out to check the truck - - when I was at McDonald's the other day, the temp gauge went all the way over to hot.

While he was doing that, I was going to pick up pecans, but realized I hadn't seen Sam since Friday. We spent most of yesterday inside, looking for Christmas stuff, and it was pretty cool outside. I found her beside the house, sick. She has the goopy eyes/upper respiratory problems most of the outside cats have. So now, for the second time in literally a week, I feel so guilty. I don't even know how long she was out there and it was so cold the last two nights. We brought her in and warmed her up, and I cleaned her eyes, put in some of Bucky's ointment from when his eyes were like that, and put some drops in her nose so she could breathe. Cat drops, not human ones. She's very weak and won't eat, and I'm using a baby bottle to give her water. J's going to try and get her in at the vet's tomorrow. She's staying inside tonight and possibly forever. I just don't know how she got so sick so fast.

And J says we're going to have to get the truck checked out, but we have to wait until Thursday or Friday. I'm driving the car tomorrow, because J can still get to class after I get home. Tuesday and Wednesday are harder because he leaves earlier and stays later at class. He's going to use the truck tomorrow and see how it does.

What a day.
