Some Days You Should Just Stay in Bed!!!


Today was one of those days.  There were several deliveries scheduled for today so I needed to be home.  One of my cats has been really sick the last few days.  She is 17-18 years old so I realize it may be time for her to "take her great journey" as my Mother used to say.    You really don't want to know the details but Nick is here and volunteered to go to the vet with me.  The ancient cat carrier was tossed last week so I made a Target run to pick up a new one.  I am a wimp and started crying before I even paid for the thing.  The vet visit was postponed for a day.

In progress!
One of the sewing tables I ordered was delivered today.  The instructions were daunting at first but once you get started it is not really hard.  The step I skipped was "check to make sure all pieces are included before assembling".  Whoops!  A major piece was left out and, of course, the service department closed about 15 minutes before I called.  Please just send me the piece and don't make me take apart what I have done!  Pretty please.

Today I ordered a bookshelf from Amazon and it has already shipped.  Expected delivery date is Oct. 6th!  Three weeks??????


Doesn't it sound like I deserve an evening being a couch potato and watching TV?  Nope!  The cable that was just installed Monday is out.  They should get in touch with me in the next 24-48 hours to schedule a service technician.  Maybe I can deduct three days off my bill.

Update on Thursday:  Cat spent the day at the vet having tests.  Final report in the next day or two but "she lives".  TV works again.  Table part is on its way.

Man, O Man, I think I'd have a headache!! The TV was working so well when we were there!! Another chance to see if 'cable guy' can stream your computer to the TV for you!
The rugs you give us work soo well!!! We love them!

Peggy, I'm just catching up on my blog reading and felt so bad reading about this awful day of yours. Of course, the table & cable, etc., are hassles and it's such a drag that everything happened at once, but your cat is a matter of the heart and that puts it on a whole different level. Please update us when you have a chance.

How is your sick kitty? Doing better, I hope.

Love your photo & caption of the remotes. I can relate. Comcast will knock the 3 days off your bill if you ask. Be sure to check the bill, though.
