I can reply to threads, but still can't start one.  If someone could start the Monday thread for me, I'd be wonderfully thankful (and yes, I have been on the help forums many times lately to complain about this...)

Do you think you'll find her Cheryl? My cat at my parents house got really sick once and kid under my brother's bed for days. We finally found him and was able to get him to the vet and on medication to get him better, but he was younger, probably 10 years old at the time. He lived to be 19, but still. Poor Kristen! But I totally understand your not telling her til after finals.

And I am SO done with animals. 

We lost Sneaky over the weekend.  SIGH.  She wasn't looking good Friday or Sat.  I accidentally let her out yesterday.  She went and hid under a bush out back (she's been doing the hiding thing that we went through with Jasper.  She was having breathing problems too, and had eaten nexxt to nothing).  I went back a half-hour later and she was gone.  And we couldn't find her. 

Nothing like having to tell the college kid that we've lost the second cat in 6 months.  And I'm not saying a word to her until I get her on Thursday since she's in the middle of finals right now :(

Ouch!  That sounds painful.  I hope after a night of rest and elevation/icing it feels better.   Also hope your girls are both doing better with their foot/illness.  Hope you and your DH had a good weekend.

It's Sunday evening and I am sitting in my recliner with my foot propped on a pillow to make it more comfortable.  I know for sure I sprained it but I am worried I might have cracked a bone.  I was painting in Katie's room this afternoon and stepped off the step stool and caught my heel on a drawer that was in the floor from her dresser and came down hard on it.  It's messed up.  I have some strange bruising across my toes and I didn't even hurt it there so it's obviously bruised inside.

Hi everyone, did not get to check in yesterday.

Yesterday I went back to work after being out sick for two days. It was a half day for students. I spent the afternoon in a workshop and got out 1 1/2 hours earlier than usual (due to no break for lunch for us, following middle school schedule).  When I got home, Kayleigh and I went to the mall and food shopping.

Ian and Dh are scout camping this weekend. Today is a big cleaning day here, and I believe Kayleigh has some kind of plans with friends for tonight.

Tomorrow, Kayleigh is volunteering at the art center.  Maybe I'll get started on Christmas cards. I also want to bake some cookies (not for the holidays), finish up my wrapping, maybe take Ian out for ice cream.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I do have some good news for today.  Katie seems to be feeling better.  I think by Monday she will be great and whatever had her down and feeling bad will be gone.  She has done a lot of sleeping over the last two days.  Sleeping is always good for feeling bad.  

On another note Tim apologized but I have been feeling really bad all day and on the verge of tears.  It's all I can do to not break down and just cry.  If I were alone I would.  I am just so tired of all this crap.  I feel worn down and I don't want the fight anymore.  I am so ready to just give up.

Our refi got approved :)  I'm happy, even just that little bit off the monthly payment will help a lot.

But on a sad note- we've got another sick kitty :(  Poor Sneaky.  She was acting funny and got out this morning.  She's been kind of doing the hiding thing Jasper did right before we had to put him down.  And no- I do NOT want to put another animal down right now. Don't dare tell Kristen, finals for her start tomorrow and she's kind of stressed.  She said she wants Dean's list- I don't know if the GPA is there or not.  I told her we were pleased with what it was (3.5) and as long as she keeps all of her scholarships we're happy. 

She has a concert tonight but we aren't going.  I couldn't see making the 3.5 hour trip this week and then doing it again next week. She's not going to be any fun anyways.  She's done Thursday morning, but asked it we could get her at 8am Friday (when she has to be out of the dorms) b/c she wants to see a midnight showing of The Hobbit with friends.  Even though leaving the house at 4am-ish next Friday is NOT my idea of fun, she's worked hard this semester and has the cash to see it.  Anyhow, we'll set up one of the computers tonight b/c they stream the concerts online. 

Becca wants to go shopping Sat.  Since I've gotten nothing for the gift exchange dh's side wants to do (only 4 gifts and there's a $20 limit) that needs to be done.  Need to get the niece something too. 

Sunday- I don't know.  Clean up for the party next Sat.  That Becca has informed us that she's playing with Chamber at the Chamber of Commerce's Citzen of the Year Banquet (I think it's them- or it's the Ruritan Club) They get paid for it- it's just that someone has to get her over there and back and we have a house full of people coming.  And I don't think Kristen will take her (the kid hates interstates)
