Still not much excitement around the household here. I’ve been in a bit of a lazy funk lately (see the photo below – I think I might have caught whatever it is from Bonnie). Actually, I think it is my allergies getting the better of me. The allergy meds, decongestants and Advil don’t seem to be doing much to help (though, of course, there is the flip side to that – maybe they are helping immensely and it could be all that much worse!)
I finally got around to doing some much needed household chores on Monday – the typical stuff: vacuuming, dishes, laundry. And in keeping with my new goal of vacuuming several times a week, I am going to do that again today. I am hoping it will help reduce the pollen and animal dander in the house. At the very least it will help reduce the amount of animal fur floating around. I really do thing all my animals will go bald soon. I keep expecting to see bare patches on them with the amount of their fuzz that I pick up each day. Alas, they are all as fluffy as ever.
It turns out one of the kitties is allergic to fleas (which really is not so uncommon for kitties) so I have had to change up the stuff I use on Sadie. We are now using the K9 Advantix which is supposed to kill fleas before they bite (the goal being they die beofre they get the chance to come in on her and then get onto the kitties). I have also treated the kitties with stuff the vet gave me. None of the animals was infested by any means, but all it takes is one of those buggers to make Bonnie want to chew until she has sores. Poor thing. I had one other kitty that had this problem so at least I had a pretty good idea going into it what I was dealing with.
Work is tedious. I really need to win the lottery so I can become a professional bum. Heh. Actually, then I could have the time to do the things I really want to do – like volunteer work for various things. Someday. Someday.
A week from today I will be back home. I can’t wait! Dress fitting aside (ugh!) the rest of the trip will be a blast. Mostly I can’t wait to get my hair cut…it is driving me nuts!
