The Good, The Bad, The.....Whatever!

Nothing much, yet so much, has been going on. Thankfully, Sophie is getting much, much better. I still struggle sometimes when giving her the medication, but I really improved! She goes back to the vet next week for a check up and hopefully she gets the all clear.

J returned Saturday from his long overdue trip to Florida. It has been about a year since he last saw his family. Sadly, my mother-in-law has cancer and she is very ill. I'm so happy he got to spend the week with her. Hopefully he will be able to return soon. It is very important for him to spend as much time with her as possible. I wish we lived closer. It's hard to be so far away from them during this time.

Things at work have been getting crazy. My boss is being transferred by March, one of my co-workers quit, and another one of my co-workers just put in her 2 weeks notice. This means that it will be up to me and one other person to pretty much run things until we can be restaffed. How this will work out? I have no idea! This is why I am looking for a new job. I refuse to do the work of three people for the amount of money they are paying me. If anyone knows of any places that are hiring, please let me know. I want to be out of that place by March.

Open wide, Sophie!

I just can't do it. I have tried and tried, but she just wont let me give her that damn pill! The vet even let me come in so he can give me a lesson on how to pill my cat, but I just can't do it. Sophie has a very bad bladder infection. She is urinating blood and pus all over my house. She will be on antibiotics for three weeks. Three weeks! How will I be able to give her medicine for three weeks? She hates me right now. I feel so bad for her! If only I would have taken her to another vet before this week. My old vet told me she was using the bathroom outside of her litter box because she has anxiety. He wanted to put her on Prozac! Every six to eight months, Sophie would start "making" downstairs on the floor for like a month or so. J would yell and scream and Sophie would hide. I thought he was making her anxiety worse that's why she kept on doing it. I now find out that she has been suffering from these infections for some time. It took me finding blood on my floor to freak out and take her to the new vet. I should have known that the old vet was out of his mind. He told me my other cat was gravely ill and could die any day. That was a lie! He just wanted to take me for everything I had. That asshole needs to get his license taken away. Better yet, someone needs to kick his ass. He has it coming!

Update: Yeah, I did it! I gave Sophie her pill on the first try! I'm #1! I'm #1!

Alert!! Style Rant

I'm sorry, but I really don't understand the trend of one particular fake designer handbag. How can this fake bag be more popular than the original? I bet that the majority of the people who bought this fake bag had no idea it was a bad designer knock off. They just saw everyone else with it so they wanted it too. I know someone who bought the purse in red, lime & hot pink and the whole luggage set in blue! She was so proud of herself. I just smiled and nodded. I thought that maybe this trend would have ended by now, but no it has not. That tacky bag is still being sported all over town. People, please! You shouldn't still be carrying your Spring/Summer bag in the Fall/Winter. Side thought: how many people wear different fragrances for different seasons? Also, does your hair color change when the leaves do? I wear a lighter scent during the warmer months and a heavier scent in the cooler months. It's just something I've always done. Just like I will only lighten my hair in the Summer. Maybe I'm crazy? Who knows?!!
Anyway, I feel sorry for the people who bought the real bag. First of all, it's hideous. Secondly, every dime store is carrying the knock off for like $19.99. You know these women are saying "But my bag is the real one." Yes honey your bag is the real one, but it is still f'n ugly and you have no taste.
I'm just saying!
