Getting back to Routine
I have been home for two and half days now and it hasn’t taken long to get back to daily routine. The kitties were really funny when I got home. As I drove up Sky was in the window looking out and then took off. They both came down the stairs meowing at me. So I spent some time with them and they did kind of sniff me and approach me. After a while Tiger went her way and Sky pretty much followed me around.
I unpacked and hung up my stuff and did some laundry. Also worked on stuff I left around. I some cleaning of the boxes, and the hair ball that I am suspecting Tiger left me. I spent most of it taking it easy.
I had a semi quick visit from Liz. She was happy to see me and stuff and sort of apologized for being annoying before I left. She wanted to offer some suggestions about doing the finances. She suggested maybe if we can’t do it or I continue to have problems doing it may be\getting the lawyer to help. We also set some boundaries about me calling on a daily basis. She doesn’t like talking on the phone much so she asked if I had things to discuss write them down and then do it at our phone conversations when she calls. So I agreed. After that she checked some of the repairs that Bill Soda did and said she paid the bill. She left after that and I went back to watching some TV and ordering a pizza for dinner.
I had a phone session with Debra around 7. We talked about the trip and my new boundaries with Liz. She asked me how I felt about it and if I could find other avenues to be personable with. I told her I was a little hurt but understood and could find other things to do in between.
Around 9 I went to bed and Sky was a cuddle bug as you can see by my Facebook post that night.
Saturday didn’t go as I had hoped. I thought for sure Sky would be cooperative for his Vet appointment but he wasn’t. I knew I should have put him in the crate as early as nine but felt it would be cruel so I waited until an hour before his appointment. Now I have new scratches on my chest to prove how wrong I was. He stayed inside the spring mattress almost entirely the whole time. I tried to even rip the film that’s left on the spring mattress that allowed him to stay there. I am hoping they won’t go up there as much anymore. I have my doubts. Anyway, I decided to give up and call and reschedule the appointment for him for the 23rd. Once that was done I was relieved. They didn’t seem to mind. A while later he came out from under the bed and seemed fine. He still hung out with me and above my head anytime I sat on the couch. Tiger went into her nap mode and I didn’t see her until about 6 that night.
I talked with Jim for a half hour and we talked about cats, the woman’s club future, and other things of that nature. It was great talking with him and he asked that when I got my hair done later on that day to get a couple of pictures of my new doo. I did that but haven’t heard from him.
I got my hair done and it looks great. My next appointment is in August. She suggested that I get my hair permed again in September in time for the Holidays. So that’s what I will be doing when the time comes.
I spent the evening watching TV and surfing the net and doing some laundry.
Today getting into my normal Sunday routine. Watching TV, sleeping as much as I can and now very shortly getting ready for Bingo with my visit to Liz’s later this afternoon.
It looks like I will have to do the watering this afternoon.
