I really can’t believe I’ve been so neglectful on updating this blog lately. I really have so much to say, yet I have so very little time it seems.
School has been a little stressful. Not in a horrible, “I don’t want to go to work” kind of way, but enough that I’m exhausted with brain fog when I get home. Right now I’m pretty behind on grading, I’m dealing with some major behavior issues at the high school level, and I’m trying to put the kibosh on one of my most favorite infectious diseases (pink eye) in the preschool.
We had a little scare with my precious Boo Boo Bear no Tuesday night. Starting at around 3:15 pm he started throwing up. I didn’t think much of it, cause he’s a cat, a mischievous one at that, and I figured he had a hairball or he swallowed a weird plant or ribbon or something. But, he kept throwing up all night. At around 8 pm I started to get worried cause he had vomited at least 10-12 times and he seemed to not feel well. So, we took him to the emergency vet to find out that he was a little dehydrated and had some pain in the abdomen/kidney area. An x-ray determined he didn’t have a blockage and his organs seemed fine. So, they gave him so fluids, an anti-nausea, and a pain killer and sent us home. He’s been doing fine, although yesterday you could still tell he wasn’t 100% he did eat a little. The weirdest thing about his behavior is that he’s a giant 16 pound cat and he’s not begging for food. He’s kind of like me in that way….if I’m not eating, then you know I must be really sick. The vet thinks he may just have a little viral kitty flu or a bout of pancreatitis. M poor baby Boo!!
On a really very random note, I have an idea for an invention. Today, it is storming pretty bad, and of course my car was outside in the rain this morning….so, my question here is “what is the point of an umbrella keeping you dry to your car, if when you get in the car you have to drag it across your body to the other seat and thereby drenching yourself?” No. Really!! I’m not even trying to be funny here. I was SOAKING wet from this mere little action this morning. You know, it’s these type of things that get my right side of the brain going and get me thinking things like they need to come up with an environmentally-safe, dry-keeping, disposable umbrella that I can just toss on the ground by the car when I get in. Know what I mean? Wouldn’t that be awesome? It could just disentigrate after a few hours or something….
I’m just sayin’….
