The topic: I’m not loving this weather


The marine layer (the cloud layer above the ocean) has been really thick the past couple of weeks. So thick at times that we get drizzle out of it. I don't mind it when it drizzles, but I don't like the constant grey of the clouds. No sun, no blue sky, just grey skies as far as the eye can see.

I want to clean the house, which includes windows and floors, but nothing dries. 

It's getting depressing. This weather blows.

The topic: Well, don’t that blow your dress up?


(A guy I used to work with said that all the time.)

Yesterday, Katie was crying for food. Instead of mixing the A/D or Fancy Feast with water and using the hand held blender to blend it, I just opened a can of A/D and let her eat. Right out of the can. All I did was stir it with a fork.

Within an hour, she'd eaten three quarters of the can. I was amazed. She ate more last night (we were gone for a few hours). 

She slept on the bed last night and was asking for food first thing this morning. The past couple of weeks she's been sleeping until nine in the morning, but this morning, she was up when we were, wanting to be fed.

Okay. Here's your brand new can of A/D. Oh, here's a little bit of chicken baby food on a spoon, would you like that? (That's where her pain meds hide.) She ate it.

I can live with this routine.
