First the CeeCee update. We got a call from the vet and they found some crystals in her urine and a little blood that they figured was from straining. But things seem to be back to normal, they suggested changing her food and an antibiotic just in case.
We went and picked up the antibiotic yesterday and this morning gave her the first and ONLY dose. Don’t get me wrong there are 9 more doses. But it was beyond stressful. Lori has a gouged arm that could probably use a stitch. But most of all she started foaming at the mouth. She looked rabid and had a full beard of foam all the way to the ground. Seems she is allergic to the antibiotic.
Needless to say, she is still pissed off. Wont let either of us near her and has growled at me when I went in the bedroom. Luckily her litter box antics are over and we are going to try a new food and adding more wet food to her diet.
We are still in “Shelter at home” mode, as are most of you. We are fortunate enough to both be working from home and I am still having groceries delivered. I placed a whole foods order and it was delivered yesterday. There is a delivery tip which I usually double or more because hey they are doing the shopping. I also don’t have to have many fresh fruits or veggies delivered because I have long subscribed to this CSA box.
Well both were delivered last night so we are good on food for a couple more weeks until the next delivery. We do not have the food insecurities that a lot of people do. I am also getting better at doing without and substituting. Green onions for instance, I use a lot of them and have been out for a couple of weeks but I didn’t go buy any just because I wanted them, I waited for my delivery.
Toilet paper may become a different issue however. We didn’t have to buy any during the Great Rush on Toilet Paper in March. We are still working through the Costco package I bought in January. But it is coming to an end soon. We have some emergency TP in the back of the cupboard, camping TP if you will.
The figuring out a new routine after Monday’s yoga streaming class has resulted in nothing. Most mornings this week I spent several hours weeding. Early mornings are best for that. Spring is our weediest time of year, there has been enough rain the last few months and then the increased sun and warmth has them sprouting up. Just as I finish the front and start in the back and then turn around and start all over again. The one thing about this sheltering in place order is I am (sorta) keeping up on the weeding.
I was awake at 5:30 this morning and had plenty of time to get the a walk in. But it was slightly overcast this morning and so I got started early and worked until it got to hot.
Tomorrow is……checks calendar….. April 30th. Forty-Five days of working at home. Today was our SEC filing deadline for the period and although we have another one coming up on May 15th work should at least even out now.
That is another thing that I feel quite fortunate for. My work from home situation. Mine is shift work. My work starts at the same time everyday, it ends when 3rd shift logs on and takes over. I was talking to a friend who is working from home and its more of a start in the morning, work all day, but get distracted and end up working more hours then usual but getting less done. Except for where I am working, mine has not changed much. I am saving several hours a day in commute time.
