~another Monday~

~It's a miracle I even know it's Monday... I have lost count of the number of times I have completely forgotten what day we are on...I guess that's what happens when you have NO routine...or job. :-)

~Today I took Milo & Hula to the vet...always an interesting experience. Both are fine, just got their check ups. Hula's heart murmur continues but her activity and behavior remains the same, which is good as it means that she is feeling the same (and not worse). Her last EKG was 2 yrs ago and they told me her heart condition was significantly worse from the year prior and that she probably only had a couple years left. Well, I am happy to report that she is beating the odds and doing quite well. She continues to take her Atenolol every morning. I don't want to take her for another EKG as I don't want to know that her heart condition has worsened.

~Tried to send a pkg to Canada today. A lady bought 2 items from my Etsy store. I was shocked when I was told the cheapest method of shipping would still cost $18.40 WTH? That's nuts. I brought the pkg back home w/me as I'm certain she won't want to pay that much, especially since that's more than what the items cost her.

~My uncle is driving from TX to MI this week and will be in TN on Wednesday. Mom, her hubs, Ethan and I are meeting him for lunch. Haven't seen him since the wedding and he hasn't seen Ethan so it will be exciting. I can't wait!!

~Totally loving Sugarland's new album...especially the song "Keep You". It has no relevance to me or my life, I just like it and keep listening to it over and over.

~I guess that's it for now.

That's great about Hula. That's the same thing that happened with Kahlua and her super-huge liver. The vet made it sound like she only had like months left, and that was almost two years ago. No behavior changes, nothing. Maybe if the animals don't know they're sick and supposed to die, they just don't!

What the heck is the deal with that kind of shipping to Canada? Weird.

Shipping to me can be that expensive too. So annoying.

Hey girl! I had lost your blog link, but it just popped into my head today at work, so I thought I'd drop in. WOAH on that shipping cost!! Sorry to hear about Hula, but I'm with ya - I don't want to know anything bad about my kitty - it's just gonna have to happen when it happens. Good to "see" you girlie.
