We have birds, snakes and a lizard. Cats love those things but for all the wrong reasons. Plus the kitteh likes to scratch up furniture. My leather furniture. Kittehs come in heat something like every two weeks and drive everyone up the wall. So Libby the cat had to get "fixed" and declawed. It's harsh but necessary if she were going to have a permanent home here.
I got her to the Humane Society at 8am and left her there. Poor Libby was scared. I got to pick her up at 4 and the poor girl was loopy off medicine. She couldn't even focus on anything. Her pupils were huge! I made her a bed in a cage and we have to use shredded newspaper for her litter for a week.
|She'll get out of the cage in a couple of days. I just want her to take it easy so she doesn't hurt herself.|
In other news, I got a shipment of puzzle books in the mail. It's official: I'm old. These things can keep me entertained for hours. :) Hey, it keeps the mind sharp.
It was a perfectly low carb day. I haven't been weighing myself but have been going by my clothing fit. My clothing said, "You can do better than this." Yeah, some things were tighter than I would like. And I know how to remedy that!
For dinner I made up a Paula Deen recipe (one of the few that actually fits with a low carb lifestyle) for a cilantro-lime grilled chicken. Chuck cooked that while I shredded some zucchini and summer squash in spaghetti shapes and cooked it with lemon pepper, olive oil, lots of garlic and a little bit of hamburger seasoning. It was soooooo good! The kids said the squash tasted like pasta and actually ate it all up! *shock*
It was a busy day with Libby, doing school with the kids, running errands, cooking dinner, shredding newspaper, making a place in the garage for Rachel's car, etc. By 9pm I was ready for bed. I took a melatonin (just to make sure I slept hard) and dozed off looking through a trail guide. *zzzzzzz*
