good cats

Love Our Cats (Poor Henry)

We love our cats. It's not Henry's FAULT that we got home after a long and tiring day at work and had to deal with his massive poop-y accident. What an awful, awful mess it was! On the carpet and on HIM. It was ages to clean up.

Marilyn and I decided it was the food. We couldn't get their usual stuff recently. We get a certain kind, the Indoor type. We got that brand, but it wasn't the Indoor recipe. They didn't take to it all that well. But Henry's illness makes him hungry all the time, and he eats and eats. This looked like it might be richer, so little wonder it gave him the bad runs. Heavens, what a smell.

I also scooped out their boxes, in case the nasty runs was there, too... (ugh)

So we went off to Freddies to get food and some additional cleaning products (just in case). Believe me, we'd already stopped at Safeway on the way home, so the last thing we wanted to do was go back to another store. But the cats had to have food, so what were we going to do?

I ate dinner when we got back. Now I'm blogging. We're both really tired, so I think we both wish we were napping.

And the goal is to get to bed early (for us), if we can.

I'm staying home tomorrow and have an appointment for a hair cut -- about time! Sister Sue is kindly going to take me.

Marilyn has a quiet day (for her) tomorrow. But Thursday and Friday are crazy days for her -- so it seems fair she should have one day during the week that isn't that bad. (I hope it turns out to be true...)

Had lunch today with Rich. Donn came in and worked for several hours. We got PRFA88 set up. (I need to vet it, but I feel pretty good about it.) I wasted time trying to add software to Angel's computer. He needs a NEW (well, used -- but new for him) machine. I think I have an idea about that. We'll see!

And Kris came in briefly this afternoon (totally unexpected).

Did a bit more work on the Franklin website. Maybe I can focus on that tomorrow.

Sister Sue's birthday is Friday -- but she's going to be out of town that day and over the weekend. Maybe I can take her lunch tomorrow or something...

Staff meeting was fine. Jeff gave a little speech about all the work I'd done on the website (and the entire history of why I ended up as Webmaster in the first place). I managed not to cry (smile). And the whole room cheered and clapped for me. Plus this was amazing: Jeff gave me a card and a Starbucks gift card as a present! ($50!!!) What a lovely surprise.

I feel like this is missing stuff, but I'm too tired to concentrate...
