I swear, I have been going full-tilt boogie all freakin’ week. Hell, until last night I had been “off” as far as the date goes by a day (so kind of y’all not to scold me for this in yesterday’s 9-11 related post!).
My cat had gotten sick and had to stay a couple of nights in the vet, and it didn’t look good when she first went in. She had stopped eating altogether and had started howling (as if in pain). It turned out that she had a couple teeth that had abscessed and the infection had spread to her sinuses. So she had to have a canine and a couple of molars pulled out, but she’s doing MUCH better now. In fact, just now I had to wrestle her down for her daily meds — poor dear, she hates it but I think she knows it’s for her own good.
She’s purring and meowing at me now, so I know she’s already forgiven me. :)
All week I had been pretty much afraid that we would’ve had to put her down. I swear I cried for 3-4 days straight. Only yesterday did I get the good news that the infection is receding and she appears to be in otherwise very good shape. I spoke to one of the admins at the vet this morning and when I was talking about having to wrestle her down to pour meds down her throating, she laughed and said “Yeah, she’s a peach!”
Apparently she showed them plenty of her wrestling moves. :D LOL
Jessie’s been getting in trouble at school, or rather, at home ABOUT school. She’s had several fees, assignments, and several other things that she’s needed for school, but didn’t tell anyone. Her teacher has called the house 3 times in a week’s time.
I don’t know what’s up with her lately, but she’s refusing to do her homework, study for tests, or even bring her books home. She’s also gotten in trouble at school a couple of times for not following directions basically … mainly minor things, but everything altogether doesn’t paint a good picture as far as school goes. And what gets me, her mother is NOT CONCERNED! Nevermind the fact that had I not told her about most of what’s going on, she would be clueless as usual.
So anyways, her punishment from me is working her little heiny off helping me clean around the house tomorrow.
I’m such an evil step mother. :roll:
