Hello there... How's things?
Right, a weekend wrap-up. Friday night was spent with zen_kitty
and there was excellent conversation, silly kitties, pizza, and movies. All was good. Well, once the pizza place actually got the order right... *laughs* The movies were "The Jane Austen Book Club" and "Akeelah and the Bee." I thought both were pretty good, the first was funny and the second was quite heart warming. I do think that the Jane movie is better if you have read all the Jane Austen novels. That said, I would love to read the novel the movie was based on.
Saturday- woke up with a raging migraine. But was not to be overly deterred! The Kyle had to be walked, and the losgunna
had to be visited! So I got to her place later than planned, but that just meant that I was home when the mail arrived, and thus had a BPAL order to bring with me. Off to visit, and yarn shopped! Was much fun. Again, good company, silly kitties, and movie! *laughs* Same Jane movie...
Sunday- same migraine... really was annoying at this point. Settled on the couch for awhile with a heat pack on my neck and a cold pack on my face- cup of coffee close at hand. Figured all these steps would help. Did a bit- allowing me to get the dog walked and a shower (both of which also helped the migraine). Then it was time to pack the doggins up and head to see my folks! He was pretty good in the car, thank goodness. I did stop on my way out of town to pick up a new Nyla for him- to give him something to do in the car.
After having been 'home' for a bit my mom called Elder Brother J to let him know that 'Cousin Kyle' was there... He, wife, and 'cousin' Sophie showed up a little while later. Sophie being their new dog. She's got about 5 lbs on Kyle, and is only a smidge taller. They got along *fabulously* I was so pleased. Well, you know, once they decided who was boss.. and that would be Sophie... Poor girl is in heat- now when EBJ and SIL M adopted her they were told she had been spayed. Oops! So she had on a diaper... was really silly looking, but did the job. Luckily Kyle has no puppy-making bits, so it was fine to let them run around. Though my dad was flipping out as they were working out their dominance issues... See Kyle quickly learned that if he tried to mount Sophie she would get annoyed and then chase him around the yard. This was exactly what he wanted. So being a smart dog, he kept trying the behavior that rewarded him... So the backyard suffered a bit as she chased him 'round and 'round. To my brother's surprise- Kyle is faster than Sophie. Me? Not so surprised.
Sophie seems to be, for the record, a springer spaniel / black lab / border collie sort of mix- so a medium sized mostly black dog with white feet/legs (with black freckles) and a bit of white on her face. She's a very cute, sweet dog, with a not so happy past. But she's now with EBJ and his wife and all is good in her world. Already Sophie is very attached to them, and is quick to make sure they don't leave without her! I love that Kyle will have a playmate when we take him up there!
Monday- headache is better, but still around- plus side, doctor appointment in PM, other plus- get to see hubby!!! (he worked Friday, Saturday, AND Sunday) Saw nurse practitioner, got new prescriptions... she wants me to try some alternate meds because my blood pressure is a bit high. Must see regular doc about this. Spent a lovely, relaxing evening with the hubby. :)
Tuesday- migraine is gone, but neck and shoulders are sore from carrying tension! (note to self, schedule massage!) Should be going to Gone Wired tonight for writing, yay!
And that's about all..
