Gah! Today started out so nice, calm and normal, but it did not last long! After appreciating Roxy for a few hours, I headed back into town with a few of these in my belly
Yum – these were plum sweet! I’m glad I found these on the sale isle this week – they’re dark chocolate covered prunes – prunets? like raisinets? they’re good, whatever you want to call them.
So, I drove back into town, trying to talk to Roxy and apologize for the crazy day and I promised her treats and yogurt tonight after all we were putting her through…although I don’t think she cared at that point. She threw up – again – when I was pulling into the parking lot at work. We took her to the vet and at least found out she does not have glaucoma!!!! We’re not sure exactly what is going on, but they ran some bloodwork and we should know more tomorrow. I’m just so, so happy it’s not glaucoma.
After gathering up our still cloudy-eyed and now violated cat and leaving $200 poorer, we went back to work for about 30 minutes so I could send whatever approval letters needed to go out today. Then, we got back in the truck and headed home. I had another appointment with my chiropractor for some more electrode-love on my shoulders (which are feeling much better!) and then stopped to get eye drops for Roxy – of course, it’s not one of those generic things you can pay just $4 for – it wasn’t horribly expensive, but after paying the vet $200 to draw some blood and not really tell us anything, I wasn’t really happy to be paying for anything else today.
Thankfully, dinner was quick to heat up tonight. Nick really liked the zucchini I made last night, so I made some more to have with our leftover stuffed peppers and roasted a little broccoli, too.
I think the orzo was even better tonight! The flavors had time to soak into the pasta – it was great.
I’ve been all about the veggies lately. I think this warm weather just makes me want light meals.
I am going to relax some, read some of my book and just enjoy the night. We have the window open, the fans on, and I just want to soak it in and end the day on a good note :)
Thank you all so, so much for the notes and thoughts and prayers about everything this week – I appreciate every comment and email and am so thankful for them. It has been crazy and I’m ready for everything to return to normal.
