It's spring!

We had a health scare this morning. Cloud was not holding his food down right, his appetite had decreased, and nothing was coming out the other end. He cried a lot and his belly bloated up. After surgery on his digestive system, this was the last thing we wanted to see. However, it turns out he just has a stomach bug. Whew!

After 7 days without sweeping or scrubbing, the house collected 3 cats' worth of cat hair. I spent most of my rest time yesterday scraping hairballs out of the rug. It was actually pretty funny.

Ban Lu ran out of his special homemade food, and it turns out his tummy can't handle the high-end canned food by itself. So he accompanied Cloud in covering my house with throwup. Fortunately he did it on the bamboo floor. How I love my bamboo floor. So easy to clean.

My tooth infection is back. Owwwwww.

I burned the new batch of Ban Lu food.

The laundry piled up, but it has to wait until I'm done washing the things Cloud dirtied. I desperately need to scrub the tub, too, before anyone needs a shower, because that's where I stored the soiled items before I was able to haul them downstairs and wash them.

I have to work. Which is fine. I like to work. But work cuts into my cleaning time.

The problem with GI surgery and stomach bugs is that they require abrupt changes in diet. Maybe I should just pitch a tent at the grocery store.

In spite of all this, I'm happy.

My kid's more-or-less fine, my parents are here, we're going to see a baseball game tonight...

...and IT'S SPRING!!!!

It might hit 70 degrees this weekend. Wahoo! Seriously wahoo.


  1. Hooray! I'm so glad you've got such good reasons to be happy!

  2. I was happy for a moment. Back into the hospital we go.
