We're still here

As if we wouldn't be.  So the Mayans just played a great big practical joke, or you can look at it as a lot of people are: it is just the beginning of a new cycle.

So, I have sort of wasted another two days of freedom.  It is ending as I type since they are on their way home.  Just mere hours remain!

I hate having things to do in the middle of the day.  It just ruins the day.  Tuesday was the pedicure day, Wednesday the funeral, yesterday was the Opthamologist, and today - well today is the end.  No I am not still waiting for the Mayan thing to happen.

My eyes are doing as well as can be expected.  She even thought my eyesight was  better.  Huh??  I can't see anything.  But the pressure is back to where it should be.  I can't help but think this condition that Daughter and I BOTH have doesn't cause that pressure (and vision) to fluctuate.  Somehow, the corneas absorb too much fluid and swell.  I would try to spell the condition phonetically since I haven't seen it in print, but it is too close to another word that begins with "f" that I would never post here.  But that word pretty much would cover how I feel about this stuff.  Her treatment for this.  Now don't laugh:  use the blow dryer, for a bit on a medium setting, on my eyes and it will cause the corneas to get rid of some of the fluid.  Yeah, OK.

So now I need to head upstairs.  As usual, I am behind the 8-ball with projects.  I want to make the alphabet toss bags for the smallest gchild.  Naturally I would choose the alphabet, although I will do shapes and numbers for his birthday.  Perhaps I will switch those around!!  I have some beautiful "lace" ornaments I want to do for the g-girls, and there are state ornaments for the moms.  My philosophy I guess is to work under pressure.  That way, when things go wrong, my blood pressure can soar!!  Yep - that's me.

Simone.  Yes - she is doing really great.  I will be calling to get her tranquilizers and nausea pills refilled in case I need them since (sigh) we are leaving (again) on the 26th for the SSB.  I will leave a message for the vet - she is doing great, now what.  Making the food isn't really too hard, but it is rather expensive.  I take a chicken to boil.  Then I make the same amount of white rice.  If this goes on, there will have to be additives for the missing nutrients.  That makes about 5-6 feedings which translates into 3 days.   It is a mess as well.  I guess I am going to have to look carefully for sales on chickens.  Of course, it would help if I would stop buying organic!

So, I am off to pick up some stuff.  Still have presents to wrap.  Hope you are more prepared than I am for Christmas!

I love chicken and rice, I'll be right there.

One of my four cats has a sensitive stomach so now I have to first try that type formula with his dry food. The wet stuff doesn't seem to bother him. The vet said I can feed the dry for sensitive stomach cats to all of them with no harm done.
