Say It. I Dare You.

There are two, maybe three words I have trouble pronouncing. I'm much better, because I've practiced over the years. I rarely say them incorrectly, but I mentioned it to her and another co-worker

She loves to tell EVERYONE about it and tries to get me to say the words. So annoying. Today, it was with my boss' boss. um no. Plus, I can't even say them the old way most of the time

She also told them that I know every black person that she went to school with. Really?!?! SHUSH IT!

Trying out a new car wash, they tried to upsell me three times in the space of add many minutes. When I declined again, the guy said "well whenever you're ready, let us know and we can really shine this car up, detail it, wax it really good, you know, make it look good". Um, insulting my car isn't getting you the upsell either. And, I won't be back.I went in asking for the mid range package, it's not like I was asking them to just squirt it with a hose. I don't like pushing

My friend just texted me, her husband's cancer has spread to his brain, full of tumors. Very sad news.

I used to have a problem saying breakfast when I was little. It was brek-a-fist. Other than that I have no problem with pronunciations. I might say some things slightly different, due to location variations, and have had people ask me to say things numerous times. They like the way I say five and nine. One of my co workers has a slight speech impediment and his has trouble with several words. He'll say, "aw! you know what I mean". No one harps about, though.

PerriP, I am so sorry about your friend.


It is so beautiful outside today. I managed to haul of the trash and go to the store, and it was enjoyable. Yes I've been that bored.

It would be my luck to go over my living rm and kitchen again, get them completely spotless, and knock a large glass of soda all over the place within 5 min after I'm done.

Speaking of the 90's... One of my friends posted this earlier and I got a good laugh. I was thinking of this album last weekend. It makes me think of making out with my first love (forget that easy listening stuff), hanging out in the woods with a jam box, and riding around town looking for trouble.

I realized when I took my shower tonight that it had been 6 says since I washed my hair, and 3 days since I had brushed it. By the time I finished, I was sharing the shower with hair ball hamster from hell.

I saw my moms cat today. Mom kept saying she was doing better but she does not look good at all. She is breathing very hard and fast, and just wants to lay around. She did eat half of her food (her portion is half of a small can) and drank some more water when I was there. That was a little more than this morning, but not Bitty. She normally eats hers, the rest of her moms, and then begs people for scraps. I'm very worried about her, and so is her kitty mama. She keeps checking on her. I really hope my mom changes her mind about going out of town. I can't stand the thoughts of her being alone in the house and ... Unless something changes, and I hope it does, I don't think she will make it through the weekend.

Well, they seem to have left at last. I'm almost afraid to believe it.

The first time I met her, she was reading the Bible and drinking a beer; by the end, she'd lost custody of her kids and was known as trouble. I lent her my sewing machine; it was filthy when she returned it. She simply gave away a dog and cat I offered to rescue and helped care for. She and her horrid boyfriend physically assaulted a teenager who owed her money for a haircut.

And now, all that chaos and violence and yelling and messy yard and screaming kids is finished. It's going to take a while before the relief sets in.

I am so ill right now. At least some of the vet clinics in my area used to be open until noon on saturdays. Not any more. I called 8 this morning. The 3 in my county and others surrounding. Not that most would have taken my apt anyway. I have $50 to last a week, and she's not my cat. Eeeee! This is going to make me sick, and my poor mom is completely in denial. It's not that bad! She's feeling better. No, it's worse. I couldn't say too much, though. She was ready to lose it when I did. I can't say I'm much better. I fed her as baby, and had to make her eat, when runty little her refused. She wanted to swing on curtains and chew plastic as opposed to nursing and eating actual food. Lovely little weirdo. That's her in the middle of my furbies.

I'm with her cat now. I've put on my kitty nurse hat, I've worn it many times, and broken out my complete encyclopedia of cat illnesses. Not sure exactly what is going on with her. She was vomiting and had diarrhea for a day and a half, and would not eat. Now she is eating small bites, she is still drinking water but she is lethargic at times. She is still moving from spot to spot in the house, but that is about it. She is drinking water, and still peeing but she peed on herself yesterday (didn't know until later last night) and is breathing very fast and hard. I gave her some water with a bit of pedialyte and she sat up and drank some. I read it was safe for cats in several places before I did it. No blood, she doesn't seem to have pain when she uses the bathroom... Idk. She just looks so weak and pitiful.

She's 13, btw so it could just be that time... I've had cats live for 20 years but it's highly possible at this age.

I am glad she is drinking on her own. She is normally a handful and I did not want to break out the droppers. I would if I had to, though.

I was always one of those kids with 5 kitten bottles and several cans of unsweetened condensed/evaporated milk on hand (before kitten replacement formulas and recipes). I would take care of the runts that didn't want to eat, the stray babies that somehow ended up at my house or were found by friends, and those that my cats refused to nurse. I knew they had a reason, and the kitten would not make it, but I tried anyway. Little Bit was my largest challenge. She will eat you up!

I hope the pedialyte helped. I had to come home, after I fed them dinner. She only took two bites. She has no interest in food but she did drink a good amount of the pedialyte diluted in water. When I left she was sitting up and had been for awhile. She had not been able to do anything but lay around with her head down before that.

I really wish I could sleep. I'm too worried.

i get to go to Ikea today with my friend Leanne. unlike mom last Sunday, she will NOT be rushing me through the store and i will be able to indulge in proper kitchen love!

Little Mother of all the Roaches, President-for-Life of the MAC Harlots!
What a morning. I couldn't take it. I left my friend a note and went to my mom's. I ended up falling out on her couch and woke up 10 min after my friend had texted me, asking where I was. He didn't see my note, freaked out, and had already left by the time I rushed back. Lol. Ugh. He is being a little b**ch and refusing to respond to my texts. Would have been f**king handy because now I have to turn around and go back to my moms soon.

Little Bit was completely disoriented last night. I'll spare you all the details but from a little after 4-6 was rough. I was 99.9% sure she would not be alive when I woke up. She has a UTI. I'm very sure of it now. She finally peed. It's all over the place. I fed her and ran out. I've got some cleaning to do in a few, and I am very close to cussing my mom. She still has not left, and she was supposed to leave at 9. I lied and said her cat was okay because I don't want her driving and freaking out, and because she had me on speaker and little ears were listening. I hate everyone.

For a min I am drinking some coffee and hanging out with my cats.
