Finding Our Way

I forgot to plug my phone in last night.  It will be nice not having phone calls or picking it up every few minutes to look at it.  Essie had a tick in her head yesterday.  I thought it was a skin tag.  This is the only tick we’ve had in the almost 20 years we’ve lived here.  A good thing but it makes me worry about the rest of this season.  Should we have them dosed against tick and lyme disease this year?

When the guys were here Thursday to work on the garage they got the stairs done.  So yesterday afternoon I took my phone up there and took a bunch of photos so Mom could see how it looked.  Hopefully it will be completed within the next few weeks.  A lot is going to depend on when they move the electrical pole.  They can’t finish the roof until that is done.

Everyone is asleep again.  I am giving Dante pain medication as he needs it instead of just twice a day.  I am trying to keep him as comfortable as possible.  He’s not really left my side all weekend.  It was nice to actually stay home yesterday.  Friday was hard on all of us.  Between me coming home and leaving again and Dante no one wanted to go anywhere.  I think today will be more of the same.  It is overcast this morning but it is supposed to be close to 70F so it may be a good gardening day.  I may work in the front yard.  The one bush/tree needs some trimming down.

Chris was going to get some groceries today.  I don’t know if the local store will be open since it is Easter.  I don’t think Chris remembered.   Oh well.  If push comes to shove the chain stores are open.

Ok I’m back.  Things got a little busy around here and I had to step away.  I’m trying not to focus on any one thing because then the anxiety starts to kick in.  I don’t need that on top of everything else.  I’m reading a book by Stephen King and his son Owen King called Sleeping Beauties.  So far so good.  I hope it doesn’t turn out like The Dome did for me.  I never finished the book.  Never watched the series either.

Stella is acting all weird and needy.  She was happily chewing her toy when she suddenly came and sat by me looking like she was in trouble for something.  Weirdo.  Well I guess that’s it for now. Trying to stay upbeat.  Tomorrow is gonna be hard.  Cheers.
