Cats and a tap dancing old lady

So, turns out Milo is not sick or anything, he is just angry! The vet tried to take some of his mattes out and they were all connected. She called it a "pelt". Anyways, this is quite painful for him because they tug at his skin. They have suggested that he be sedated so that he can get his body shaved. I was hesitant at first, but he is currently sporting a big, jagged, bald spot on his side and it is super cute. His whole body being shaved is going to be even cuter! They are going to give him a "lion's cut". I will definitely post pictures. It's happening tomorrow!

Besides the cat excitement, I have been limping along in my class. I just don't like this one for some reason! I also saw a movie and went shopping yesterday. Fun times. Oh yeah, I went to a fun happy hour last Thursday. There was a spontaneous tap dancing 84 year old woman there. So weird and awesome at the same time.

Rainy days are for the cats

It's a rainy Sunday here in Minnesota. I have been enjoying the cooler, Fall temps, but I am not quite ready to break out the jacket yet...not to mention socks! I really need to get a better pair of shoes for work. I don't have any that are really comfortable and also work appropriate. It's a good excuse to go shoe shopping!

Tomorrow should be interesting. Milo has a vet appointment and it is always a struggle to get him in his carrier. He just flips out and makes horrible noises like we are torturing him. It's not fun for anyone, but I am hoping they can help me get some of the mattes out of his fur. Hopefully he will check out okay. He has had some behavioral issues lately (probably because of Gidget), but it does seem to be getting a bit better.

We went to a wedding last night. It was a good time! Goldy the Gopher was there and we spun his head, tail, and body. He also gave me a massage which was really funny! The drinks and food were fabulous!

I also got my haircut yesterday! It was my first real haircut post-chemo. I had one about a year ago because my hair was becoming a mullet and I needed to do something. After a year of growing it out, it was time to get it evened out a bit and also thin it out. My hair is extremely thick and can get quite poufy. It feels great to have some of the bulk out and my head feels much lighter! Yay! Now I can keep growing it and it will look nicer as it grows out more.

Anyways, back to homework and coffee! Wish I could take a nap! Today is a perfect nap weather day.

Of course I am also remembering 9-11 today. The memorial at Ground Zero looks amazing. Hard to believe it has been ten years...

Oh look, it's Sunday again!

It's 10:10pm and I am not done with my homework! Whoops! It's been a busy weekend and I've had a lot going on so that is my excuse.

Friday - HH, bowling
Saturday - MOCA walk, lunch, date night movie
Sunday - visited friends in St. Paul and Eagan

I feel like there was even more in there that I am forgetting, but that is still quite a bit. I drove around town quite a bit. Anyways, homework is overrated. I don't really have any good pictures from the weekend. Too bad. I made a really good egg and veggie scramble for lunch today. I used up a ton of things that were on the verge of going bad so that felt great! We have a bunch of apples that need to be used. I think I'll make some applesauce...

Anyways, I'd love to write more, but I really should get at least some of this HW done.

10:15pm now...

Serial Sunday Procrastinator

I was looking through my bookmarks and found this old Tumblr blog that I started. The title definitely fits my mood today, Serial Sunday Procrastinator. I basically started it as a way to not do my homework. See, I always have homework deadlines on Sunday nights. Not to mention the fact that Sunday nights suck in general because of work the next day. At least tomorrow is a holiday! Back to my homework I guess!!

Last surgery for the year...

And hopefully for a long, long time! Between the two of us, we have had five surgical procedures this year. Eight in the past two years. Too many!
Yesterday, Andy had his carpel tunnel surgery on his left hand. His right hand is healing well and feeling better. The doctor said that his left hand looked pretty bad and that he cleaned a lot of "junk" out of there so the surgery should really help him. I hope so! I am over doctors, clinics, and hospitals.
I am glad to have a long weekend to look forward too. We don't have too many plans, but a couple of things. I definitely have to get caught up in my class and maybe even work ahead a bit so I don't get overwhelmed. There will also be a trip to the state fair and to a mall with some friends. Fun times.
Well, time to get a few things done before dinner. I think we might watch "True Grit" tonight. Hope I like it!
