Isn't this snowman pic the cutest thing?
And since I have no wonderful post related pics to share today, Cute Little Snowman will happily serve as your visual.
FattyCat had his checkup at the vet today. It has been two months since his last thyroid check, instead of the one month that he had been going. Last time they said his thyroid levels were "still a bit low" and adjusted his meds down. Today they rechecked everything . . . thyroid, kidneys, whatever else. His weight has remained constant, which is better than losing, but we still don't know why he's not gaining. His thyroid levels are better, but his kidney test was a wee bit off. The vet said we should consider getting one of those pet fountain things to encourage him to drink more water. We have water available to them at all times, but the vet said cats are more likely to drink more from a fresh or running source instead of day old, still water. I guess that explains why they love when we leave the faucet dribble for a while. I don't think the vet is too overly concerned yet though, because he said Fatty doesn't need to come back for a year. He said we could go back at six months just to be sure, but otherwise he'd see Fatty in a year. I guess that's good news.
I went to my mom's today, did her laundry, helped her with things. She didn't want to go to town today because of the snow we got yesterday. That was fine with me. She said she had fun at my brother's for Christmas and that next year we're going to try and all get together either before or after Christmas, instead of Christmas Day. I vote for before. That's one of the things I'd been thinking about in this year's blahness, that if we'd all gotten together Christmas Eve Day or something it might have seemed more exciting. Seems like on Christmas Day we all just want to hang out with our own families.
After leaving my mom's I stopped at work to pick up my check and have my 'yearly work review.' Those reviews are such a crock of crap. They mean absolutely nothing anymore so I really don't care what they have to say about me. I ended up hanging around for a while just chitchatting with my supervisor and a couple other people. We talked about movies, and my supervisor (a huge movie addict) scolded me for having all this time off and not watching any movies. But I DID watch a movie! I watched that horrible Paranormal Activity #?? movie!
Hubby and I watched Ouija when I got home, so I could say I watched something. Man, that movie sucked too! As expected, my supervisor assured me that didn't count because it's a crap movie. I can't win. lol
We finished watching The Guild this evening. It got quite boring in the last couple seasons. Probably good that it ended when it did. The NPC mermaid in the last season absolutely cracked me up. At first I was like, why is she acting like that? All stiff and never making eye contact? Then it was like DUH! She's an NPC. That's how they act.
(Liz, have you seen The Guild?!)
So now we're just winding down for the evening. Oh! We finally decided to go ahead and order markers from Amazon and wouldn't you know, when I went to the site they were temporarily out of stock. We ordered anyway, and they'll let us know when they get more in. I also used my Amazon gift card towards a set of books I've had on my wish list for some time now. I will do a haul post when I get them. I also spent some time on the Lush site today because Julie and Liz have me wanting to get into Lush now. I just don't think I can do it though. The prices are so scary high!!! All the sale things are out of stock. Even though they've been randomly restocking, I'm not sure I'll ever catch one of those restocks. I'm also afraid that I'll spend that money and then never use the bath bombs or bubble bars. Heck, I still have the one from Petals Bath Boutique sitting here!
Alright, I'm going to go color for a while.
