  1. Three days in...

    Regarding our cat Pier...As I wrote earlier it's been hell this week, but...wow...so much progress in one day! She's still very wobbly, but she's got a little bit of sass back and she's interested in what's going on around her. She wasn't very alert earlier. Her eyes have stopped jetting back and forth. She can focus a lot better today. She ate a lot of kibble today and she's drinking water really well. I'm so thankful. It turned our day around just to see her coming around a little. I think ...

  2. All Shook Up

    Sometime in the early morning on Wednesday our cat, Pier, had a stroke. That's what the veterinarian thinks, anyway. She was at the vet most of the day yesterday but was allowed to come home last night. What a night it was. Pier lives with my mom, so I spent the night there watching her. We've had to give her water through a dropper/syringe and feed her by hand. She is suffering from Feline Vestibular Syndrome now - which I think was caused by the stroke. Her eyes jet back and forth and ...

  3. You can (sometimes) get what you want...

    My niece performed with the Rolling Stones last night in Atlanta. She's part of the three singers you hear in the beginning. It was such an awesome moment for her. She's studying music/voice and just graduated from Emory University two weeks ago. She's moving to Chicago to attend Roosevelt University in July. She's a wonderful opera singer who, I think, has a very bright future ahead of her. Can't help but to beam with pride. I love her so much - like she's my own. My nephew, too! Anyway, ...

  4. Life's Complexities

    I've been in a pretty rotten mood for the past two days now. I have reason to feel this way, but it's much too personal to write about here. All I can say is people can be really inconsiderate and intentionally hurtful without any kind of conscience. Can I be hurtful? Yes. But usually it's aimed at people who deserve being hurtful towards because they're genuinely hateful themselves. I'm quite a considerate person and very loving, but don't cross me, hurt me, or someone I love, because that's ...

  5. Back To the Old House

    I spent last week - all week - back home at the beach. Got to do everything that I set out to do and had such a wonderful time. It's not surprising that I've been homesick since returning and I cannot wait to go back again. I am planning on returning in July and August. I knew that I had been stressed out from the past two years or so, but I had no idea how much so until I felt relief from the dullness of everyday life here and forgot about almost everything while there.

  7. Could it really be..Good times for a change?

    So. When Morrissey tickets went on sale, I was naturally frantic - like everyone else trying to get good seats - and ended up with two tickets. The one I shall use and then an extra one, which I had planned to sell. Well, until my mother called.

    MOM: Did you get your Marrissey ticket?

    ME: Yep! Got two, actually. I ended up with a better seat so I'll just sell the other.

    MOM: Oh! You have an extra ticket?? I want it!

    This doesn't come as ...

  8. KMAL revised...

    The original would be fine without that horrible intro. I like everything else after that. However, I just found this on youtube and, well, James Dean and cats...nice! Thanks to Lesley Verbeek.

  10. She's Leaving Home

    Last night the mother of a client of mine came in for her monthly massage. I usually see her in passing as she only gets a facial a few times a year. Her daughter, however, I see often. I hadn't recently and wondered why, but didn't think much of it as she had started college and I figured I'd see less of her because of that.

    When I saw her mother last night, I noticed she looked as though she was in pain. I figured she was suffering from lots of muscular problems.
