Hiatus Terminus

A fortnight later and everything is pretty much how I left it. I won't call it writer's block because that's lame, but as soon as I think of a term considerably less lame, I'll apply it.

We're celebrating four years of marital bliss today -- albeit with minimal fanfare. She's taking a pilates class after work and I'm getting my hair cut. We're headed to the beach for a long weekend, however, and will do the majority of the celebrating between re-applying sunscreen.

It's been a busy couple weeks that just ended with our finding out that our cat is diabetic. Poor little guy. At least we know not to blame him for his *ahem* inappropriate behavior. He'll need to be on insulin, which means two injections per day for the rest of his life. If he lives another ten years, that's 7300 injections, $6000 for insulin, and about $2000 for the additional visits to the vet.

We had been considering pet health insurance. Don't think we aren't kicking ourselves for not acting a bit quicker on that.

And he has a mild urinary tract infection that we're treating with antibiotics every day. Oh, the many faceted joys of pet ownership.

I plan on posting more regularly again. Of course, I'll have to be careful that the wind doesn't kick up and get sand in my keyboard.

I think my IT guy would probably tell you to be more careful with your keyboard and not get crap in it. I can find his number for you if you like.
