A lot has happened since the last time I blogged...some good, some bad. I'm not sure I really want to get into everything, but suffice it to say that I registered with TICA, have a website for my cattery, am working on kittens, took in some relatives who needed a little boost to get where they need to be, my tumor markers are skyrocketing again (from just under 100 to over 1000 in less than a month), the VA made a decision on my claim but I haven't seen it yet (I strongly suspect they denied it again), and in general, I've been running myself ragged.
But...I got a pool. Its a much-needed stress-reliever, even though we couldn't really afford the extra utilities its going to run up with our current living situation, but dangit, some things you just have to find a way to afford. So we're all pretty much on a diet and sweating to death during the day because I turn the a/c off for the most part to save a little more money. The pool...it is a necessity. Trust me on this. Added bonus: I can exercise in the pool without hurting my knees, back, or abdomen...win/win/win!
I'll try to keep blogging and stay more current. Truth is, I've been so depressed all summer, I didn't want to blog, because it seemed every time I sat down to do so, I was whining.
Now I'm off to shower, feed/water cats, scoop litter boxes (not the Cat Genie, it scoops itself...woot!), run some errands with my cousin and her daughter, and hopefully relax in said pool by lunch time.
