It was a quiet, but fairly productive weekend. Friday night I worked the crop at the store - good sales that day, plus I managed to get out a bit earlier than usual.

Saturday )

Sunday )

In other news, More updates - refrigerators, cats, travel planning, etc. )

That's it for now, I guess. I expect to be hearing from [livejournal.com profile] genevieve2006 about her newest pending arrival (son #3), whose due date is next week, but could probably show up at any time.

Quick update - the positives:

1. Fridge is still working. This is a good thing, since I went grocery shopping on Saturday.
2. Boomerang is still getting along - his med dosage was increased to 2x/day, so hopefully he'll start showing signs of improvement soon.
3. Great day at the store on Saturday! Good sales, made lots o'money, and had no problem customers.

And a quick negative, because really, would it truly be my life without one?

I woke up at about 2:15 this morning with a SHARPSHARPSHARP pain in my right ear. I'd rolled over from my left side to the right and as soon as my ear hit the pillow, it HURT LIKE A MOFO. It's still sore now (especially if I touch it - naturally, I'm avoiding that activity), and sometimes the pain is related to my head position (lean head to right, wince in pain). Damn. Guess it's probably an infection. So I'll be off work at 12:30 today to head to the doctor to be checked out. I haven't had an ear infection since I was a little kid - I wasn't prone to getting them like some kids, and I only slightly recall having had one at all.

Sigh... Well, back to work for a while. I'll do a travel plans update in another post later today or tomorrow.

Who the hell is the ref who's officiating this game?!? I need to call for a do-over! I can't recall if this sort of crap was in the Wheel of the Year reading that [livejournal.com profile] etainwilson did for me on New Year's - I need to check the notes she sent...

All right, I've got a little good news to crow about and plenty of bad news to whine about. Let's get the crap over with first.

Refrigerator is dying )

Windshield is dying )

Tax refund is dead )

Cat is dying )

Hey, if you've been glossing over the bitchy parts, stop now.

Highland dance weekend in review )

So now I'm at work. At the moment, no one else is here, so it's very quiet. It would be nice if it stayed that way, but the way my luck's been running, I'm not holding out much hope of that. Anyway, if you've gotten this far, thanks for reading.

Only 80 days until Scotland...

Busy, busy, busy...

New-sy, but kind of boring )

I guess that's it for now. Time for another cup of coffee. At least I get to leave early today for a dentist appointment - I have a feeling I'm going to be in bed by 8:00 tonight...

No major drama at work, which is always a good thing.

Found out that my request for a time extension for my Master's degree was approved. That was getting down to the wire - I was originally supposed to graduate in January. Yeah, right. Plus, my request to change from thesis option to Master's project was also approved. YAYYYYYYY! That's stress relief like you wouldn't believe.

My cat Boomerang apparently has nothing major physically wrong with him. I took him to the vet on Friday, where it turns out he's lost 2.3 pounds since last year. Not so good. Decided to spring for the whole lab work-up for him, which was NOT a cheap proposition. All tests came back within normal ranges. The litter box issues have improved through my adding an extra box. Still need to call the vet back today and find out why she thinks an antibiotic might put him back onto a normal, um, elimination pattern.

Dance class last night was good. M. (the instructor) surprised me and my classmate (A.) with "Most Improved Dancer" trophies. A. and I have been pretty active with the dance stuff - we've both done the Christmas parades for the last two years, and we both participated in a special workshop this past February. A. has arranged dance demonstrations and volunteered at a local competition, and I did the medal test this fall and performed in front of a couple dozen people whilst camping a while back.

Not a bad start to the week - hopefully the trend will continue...
