OMG, Ashley, I'm cracking up about the Oasis song!
Kate, good luck with the beagle. A beagle would be a great dog for Josh, I think.
Suja, Khan is beautiful! Did you all enjoy your frozen custards?
Chrissy, a vacation somewhere warm is a great idea. Not selfish at all. That's great about working with your former co-worker's daughter! Small world.
L, poor baby S. I really hope he feels better soon. For all of your sakes.
My kitty had to go back to her dermatologist for a re-check of her skin disorder today. Our old doctor left so this is a new doctor. DH took the cat and really liked the new doctor. She had a steroid shot and antibiotic today, and they want to do a blood panel in the next two weeks. The doctor is also talking about doing comprehensive allergy testing. I have no idea how much that costs but it sounds very expensive. The kitty goes through cycles where she is very, very sick (refusal to eat, dropping weight, hiding in the closet all the time) and this steroid shot is the only thing that has helped her. It works well, but it is very expensive and we need to put aside money for me to do another IUI next month. If I have to spend all my money on the cat I will never be able to afford the darn IUI. I was worrying about paying for it before we had to pay the kitty dermatologist. I just feel like I'm hitting a wall with finances. The only time in the last 3.5 years we have not had to worry financially has been when DH was deployed. I'm getting really tired of working hard and not being able to afford the things I need.
