Well, at least for two more days I have to “visit” the office. Then it’s New Year’s Eve and the office is closed. And on Thursday I fly “home” to San Diego!! yoooo hooooo
Today I brought my cat, Shila, to my daughter’s home. Shila was originally hers, and I was only to “adopt” her for a few weeks. Those weeks turned into 3 years yet with the promise that she takes care of her whenever I travel. Shila was a good girl during the 45 minute drive and felt right at home once we got there. I stayed there long enough to have dinner and get my hair freshly colored…. there was way too much grey showing! lol
Weather has been beautiful the past two days with not a cloud in the sky, but with temps around 0°C (32° F). Add to that the strong winds we were having and you get a pretty cold chill factor…. no fun for going for walks.
My son’s family is all down with a virus so he had called for some support. Unfortunately I couldn’t be in two places at once. He did go with Karen to the doc to get some medication. Karen’s mom is flying in from India some time soon, plus an aquaintance is driving up from Heidelberg to help out for a few days.
In some ways I feel quilty about not being able to help out. On the other hand, there is soooo much going on every where… *sigh* (plus other issues I won’t mention here).
Now, with Shila gone, I can finally get my suitcase packed. She has a tendency to jump in and get her fur all over everything. I won’t be taking much with me…. it’s only two weeks after all. I think I’ll even stick with just one suitcase since the days are over that I bought lots of stuff in the States to bring back with me. There is little I can’t get here and prices are no longer that much different.
In case you wonder where I got my layout from, since it’s not among the “free” ones offered…. it shows how long this journal has been sitting around! I picked this layout when I first started and it was a free one offered at the time. I guess I’ll stick with it since it’s “different”. lol
My forum is still getting lots of action from JS refugees. We almost had our own crash yesterday but luckily got it fixed. My computer guru, Wheelie, found an up-date that keeps those fakes from being able to sign-up! Yooooo hoooooo!
Enough rambling for today. I am trying to keep up on people but it’s not easy being that you guys are spread over so many different blog sites. Oh, well….
Have a good week everyone!
Dorrie aka WildWesty! heehee
P.S. just as I went to publish this, the site froze up! So much for dependability … ahem.
