How is everybody? I was away a couple weeks, as life was interupting my plans to show up here regularly.

In the last couple weeks my parents had to untertake some serious medical examinations and on top of that we all felt ill. Luckily the results aren't as bad as expected.

My father has sleep apnoe (as we expected since some years, but he refused to check it out) due to the fact that his throat closes up during sleep. Despite the condition he does have enough oxygen. Therfore he needs a vacuum device which should make sure that his throat won't close up. Hopefully this device will help him rest better.

On top of all those examinations we also had to put our tomcat to sleep. He started to eat less and less and became very quiet. On a Wednesday two weeks ago, my father went to the vet (our old vet retired and a vet corporation took over) and they said he had a kidney and a liver tumour. They also told us that he didn't have any pain at that time and gave us some drops which should make him hungry again. We were suppose to give him this drops once a day. But he refused to eat on Thursday and on Friday mornig he breathed very heavily. My father called the vet corporation again and they told him to bring our tomcat over as he now need to be put to sleep. Otherwise he would get a cirrhosisofthe liver, which would be very painful. My father wanted to make an appointment on either friday (the same day) afternoon or saturday afternoon, as due to work those were the only times he could go. The vet corporation told us, that they are only aviable on friday morning and saturday morning (there are tree vets in that corporation!). So that afternoon my father drove to the other vet, who was aviable. After looking at our tomcat she said that he was in real pain and has been for a couple days. My father was shocked. If he knew this on Wednesday he would have put Benji to sleep that day. Never ever would he take him back home again!

Now, we are happy that he is without pain, but we miss him dearly. He was with us for sixteen years and lived a good life. We also decided to change our vet. Not just because the vet corporation wasn't aviable when we needed them but also because they are more expensive than the other vet. They also want everything paid in cash right after the examination. The other vet still offers invoices. Which is much better.
Hope your dad feels better, so sorry to hear about Benji (((Hugs)))

On Saturday we ended up doing some work around the garden, my eldest had his hair cut, I ran a few errands and later in the evening we cooked a nice meal and watched the second Star Trek movie, we enjoyed it, my eldest loved it.

It was a long day yesterday. I was up early this morning to take my son to school. My toddler keeps waking up at around 3am every night for the past few weeks so needless to say I am not sleeping well at all these nights. I managed to walk to the shops after the school run and I was delighted to see Halloween decorations and candy out! Everywere was busy moving things around, so I bet within the next couple weeks christmas will appear!

I would very much like to veg out on the couch now with a tea and a movie and recover from yesterday but ofcourse no such luck!

Have a wonderful start to the week everybody! Before we knwo it Friday will be here again!
I hope you get some rest!

I am looking forward to that too, your decorations look beautiful!!!

It's funny how different it is depending on where you live. In the summer here our electric bill is usually $150.00 higher than it is in the winter. That is including in December when I have all my Christmas lights up along with running some heat, summer is still way higher. We have even seen it up to $250.00 higher in the summer! Ahhh!

I'm looking forward to rediscovering what's on the shelves! Mr. and I both brought a huge number of books when we got married and combined households. It's nice to have a cozy place to read other than bed!

Snowflake, I will be praying. It is just so darn hard and stressful to watch your pets get ill. My little Chico keeps me worried all the time even though he has decent energy and eats well, he still has issues with his heart. Give Harlowe a hug from me! Hugs to you too!

MerryCarey,
I just saw the pics the sitting area and all your books. Impressive!!!

Today is my first official day of job searching. If you all find something, let me know! ...Kidding. I am searching in full force. I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the next. After all, a milestone will soon follow!
Good luck with the job search!

I have a busy day ahead. My oldest & dearest friend and her fiancee are stopping by later this afternoon, they live in Washington now. It'll be nice to catch up.

Unfortunately, Harlowe has been having trouble again. She was sick all day yesterday, and I am feeling so worried & stressed. Breaks my heart. Can you guys please continue to pray for her?
Thank you
Sending lots of hugs and prayers to both you and Harlowe xoxo

I think this past week has finally caught up to me. I have been running non stop. I am beat! My granddaughter and I just ran around a few hours today. I am home now and her dad will be off work early. After she leaves I will do just a few chores then rest for the day. That should get me ready for the week ahead!

MerryCarey, I am looking at your picture again in a reply. Do I see a Charlie Chaplin book? A book just caught my eye but all I can make out is a silhouette of a person looking like him on the side of a book. He does have that distinct look!

My granddaughter is looking over my shoulder and said, "whos house is that"? I told her a friend. She said, "I want to go over there"! Ha ha! I think she likes those books!
