How was your week? Mine was pretty darn stressful...Just when we are coasting along nicely WHAM BAM!
Buddy came home on Thursday evening after 3 days and nights at the Vets. All (3) nights he managed to get his cone collar off, and his cath. out (it was even stitched in place one time). The staff said, they've never had an animal do that more than once!! I had to take him back in on Friday am, because he did not seem to be peeing much, but the she said he does appear to be on the mend. Sent home with antibiotics, pain med, steroids and muscle relaxers (Pretty impossible to get all these meds down -- especially with Buddy, but I try, and Redi-Whip is my savior --open up the capsule and cover it in this; a tiny cheese ball seems to work too). Our credit card was tapped to the tune of $1,184.00, but it was worth it. He is getting used to the special foods too, and it's just good to have him home with us, and acting more and more like his old self.
Buddy has been an indoor only cat for a little over a year now, and that was tough on him at first, but he has adjusted; moving to a new place helped, When we moved, we decided we'd have indoor only cats, since some of our other pets mysteriously disappeared. We think coyotes were to blame.
Yesterday there was a Fall Festival in our town, and a book sale took was held there as well. $5.00 for a cloth tote bag full of books, plus (3) DVDS. These are the books that were for me, but I got about 10 more for other people.
- In the Lake in the Woods; Tim O'Brien
- The Tao of Beach Glass; McCabe
- The Sea; Banville
- Gift From the Sea; A. Morrow Lindberg (I had this book but I must have donated it--I recall loving it).
- My Name is Red; Orhan Pamuk
Kindle, and since the price recently dropped to $259.00 now seemed to be the time.......it's so exciting. I'll never totally rely on this device (love to touch the actual books), but I am thrilled to be a part on the e-book gang. I plan to download a few of the classics, and older books that I've wanted which are either free or very low priced.
Those of you who have a Kindle, when do you use it? Do you still read regular print books? How do you decide what goes on your Kindle?
Today's agenda: Selecting my books for the 24 Hour Read-a-Thon, play with my Kindle, finish a review book, and continue reading Cutting for Stone; Verghese (I'm about 3/4 of the way through).....Oh, and fix dinner at some point...LOL
Oh and one last question? Is is fall or Christmas? The cactus my neighbor tossed (2) months ago is in bloom :)
Have a great week everyone.
