We had to relocate our garage cat temporarily because our basement renters are allergic. Luckily, one of our friends was able to take him in. He has been there for a few weeks, but we were able to stop by to see him today. I was glad to see he is doing well and has been adapting to his new environment.
It has been a while since my last post. I have been falling asleep quickly the past few days. Wednesday and Thursday were slower at work. I dropped by the store on my way home to pick up some items. Then, we watched a show before heading to bed. It was my favorite, The Good Doctor, which I am so glad is back.
Thursday morning, I moved our cat back to the garage after having him upstairs for a few days. Our other cat was not getting along with him, and I decided he was a bit too active to be a house cat. He seemed to do better with eating after we moved him back.
Friday we decided to go out to eat since we got a coupon in the mail. The leftovers lasted us two more meals, so it was not a bad deal.
Saturday, we had a friend come over for a bit. We had lunch and dinner with her and watched a movie while my sister finished homework.
I went back to church today for the first time in a while. We have been cautious about going back to church because quite a few members tested positive for Covid a few weeks ago, and we cannot afford to get sick. It was a good meeting though, and they said they plan to start broadcasting the meeting so more people can participate in the future.
We spent most of Friday afternoon getting ready for Halloween. We made candy chutes and signs for our door. Then, we watched a Halloween movie.
Saturday morning was spent shopping for a new refrigerator. I bought one that was more expensive than originally planned but will arrive earlier and probably fill my needs more long term. I ran a few more errands afterwards, then came back home to pass out candy.
Today was a somewhat stressful day. We had new renters move in last night and realized they are allergic to cats, which is somewhat problematic since we have two cats. We had planned to keep one cat downstairs in the garage but decided we might try something different instead. We spent most of the day rearranging furniture while deciding what to do with our garage cat. We are still working on a final solution but hope it will all work out soon.
We have Airbnbers coming tomorrow, so I needed to figure out what to do with our new cat. Luckily, the catio I bought came early, and we were able to set it up today. It looks great, and he loves it!
I have realized that it doesn’t do me much good to come up with one good thing every day if I don’t actually do it every day, so I’m going to try to be better about posting this every night, even if it is not perfect every time.
But for now, I’ll catch up on the last few days. We have been short staffed at work since Friday. The nice thing about that is my boss has been buying us lunch, so we can have a working lunch instead of our usual hour break. On top of only having two tellers on Friday, our system failed overnight and the transaction program we use was out of service for the first half of the day. The day went surprisingly well though and aside from a couple minor setbacks, we had a pretty smooth day.
Saturday, we got another cat! I told my sister that it was fine as long as he was a garage/ outdoor cat because our indoor cat does not share space well. Then, we spent the day with friends. I bought pizza and dropped my sister off to watch movies while I went to donate plasma.
We spent a lot of time with the cat on Sunday and had some church time with my sister’s family.
Monday was another busy day at work since our assistant manager had to go home due to possible Covid exposure. I was a bit overwhelmed, but my coworkers are awesome and helped calm me down. We made cookies with the kids Monday night, and I ate quite a few cookies.
Tonight we watched a movie I had rented from Redbox since they gave me a free rental. The kids were looking forward to pumpkin painting/ carving, but we decided to do that tomorrow instead.
I called out of work on Monday because my stomach was acting up. I spent most of the morning sitting on the couch because I was worried that lying down would make things worse. When I felt a bit better, we went grocery shopping and then decided to take a trip to see the llama farm. The kids and my sisters loved it.
Tuesday was a busy day at work, catching up with everything I missed Monday. We went to Costa Vida for dinner and then watched a movie before heading to bed.
Yesterday was a slower day at work, which was good because our cat started having issues and I was able to come home early to take her to the vet. He said she was impacted and cleared her out. We gave her a bath when we got home. She seemed to do much better after that.
Today was another good day at work. We were able to get everything done without too many issues. After work, we went out to eat because I had a coupon at one of our favorite places. They messed up our order and gave us dole whip for free to apologize. I enjoyed it, but my sister brought hers home to the kids because she was full already.
I went to the dollar store yesterday to get some necessities. I am always surprised by what I find there. I came out with the couple things I needed and two more bags of snacks and other fun items. I was also able to talk to my friend and her son last night.
Today my sister and I went to visit some friends because they had to put their cat down. We talked for a while and then went with them to get shakes and fries. It was nice to spend time with friends again and help get their mind off the situation for a while.
