We did a quick trip to the city this morning. First to the vet appointment. Kitty is doing great and 12 pounds and about 1 1/2 years old now. He had to get 3 vaccines, but 2 of them are now good for 3 years, so I won't need to pay for them again for awhile. The whole visit came to $149. We were in and out of there in less than 30 minutes.
Did you know orange kitties get freckles? She noticed his black whisker and I said ya, that's new...and she explained orange cats get black freckles on their pink areas, like edges of eyelids, nose and inside the mouth. He does have black freckles along his eyelids and she showed me one inside his lip.
Then we drove over to see my mom (like a mile or so from the vet) and she was in her room sitting in her recliner when we got there a little after 10:30am. She was really good and happy to see us. It's such a change with her from day to later afternoon/evening, when she starts sundowning. She even said "I like it here" and was happy the whole visit. We only stayed about 25 minutes. It was like 7 degrees out and the cat was in the carrier out in the truck and we didn't want him to get too cold. Her little latchhook rug was folded up on her closet shelf, so I took that with me. The only "odd" thing she said was "I told you I got rid of my car, didn't I?" I said yes, and she said ya, I probably don't need it anymore. LOL. I agreed and said the roads were snowy and icy to drive on ;)
Then we stopped at the feed store and picked up a curbside order. I stocked up on chicken feed, scratch and bedding, so I should be good with that for a few months now. We were back home by noon and I made a quick lunch and back at my desk to work the rest of the afternoon. Since I have 3 appointments in the next couple of weeks, I didn't want to take 3 full days off work, so I'm just taking the partial hours off and just going to use up one day of PTO for the 3 days of being gone 2-3 hours those days.
I wasn't going to do MTurks today, but decided to log in and see what I could get today. So far I'm a little over $5 for maybe 30 min or less. I'll take it. I still have about an hour and 15 minutes of sitting at my desk, so maybe I'll get a few more to do before the day is over. I always remember weekends were usually pretty slow, so I'm not expecting much this weekend and especially as I don't sit at my computer too much after my morning coffee and blog update time.
DD said she and her dh both got their annual raise and bonus's this week. Between the 2 of them they are now making over $200k a year. Pretty good for a 27 and 32 year old. They are on the ball with everything, that's for sure.
I saw online that the new season (and final, I think) of Ted Lasso airs on Apple +tv on March 16. I can't wait. It's such a great show and will be worth subscribing to the streaming service again for a couple of months to watch it. There is also another show on there that sounds really good called "Shrinking", so I'm going to watch that one too. I'm not sure when Severance returns to Apple tv, but that is another one on my list I'm waiting to return and watch.
I know it is nice for you to see her at her best and not fretting and happy where she is. Hasn't it been five or more years since she sold her car? At least she remembers she had a car and what a car is. Did she notice you took the latch hook rug?ReplyDelete
No, I did not know yellow kitties had freckles.
it's been 3 years since she gave her car to her brother. I grabbed the rug when she wasn't looking, but she noticed it sticking out of my big purse when we were leaving and just said "oh that's pretty" and I just agreed.Delete
When is Resident Alien coming back on?ReplyDelete
good question! I should ask my dd - she keeps up when that is coming back on as she and her dh love that show, too.Delete
Your daughter and her hubbie are doing really well. How nice to be in such a good position financially - but more importantly to have their heads screwed on about it too! Congratulations to them!ReplyDelete
If you get Apple TV again make sure to watch Dear Edward. It’s very good. Apparently it was a book first and I kind of wish I would have known and read that f before watching this. Anyway, it’s so good and Connie Britton is in it and she’s excellent. Glad your mom is settling in! ColoradoGirlReplyDelete
Oh and make sure to watch Bad Sisters on AppleTv too! Dark comedy set in Ireland. Outstanding!Delete
thanks for the suggestions! I will definitely want to watch as much as I can when I subscribe to it again.Delete
