My goodness the past two weeks flew by!
Last week, I was glad when the weekend finally ended, and a long weekend to boot!! The week was exhausting (putting in those overtime, UNPAID hours is a bitch!). And this week, Monday was a mad rush to get enough work done that when the Blizzard2015 hit, all hell wouldn't break loose at work if we missed a day or two. And, with a grant due Thursday and a faculty candidate visiting my department Thursday and Friday, that was quite a lot!
And boy did that storm hit! I won't bore you with pictures, but we got 30 inches! Thankfully hubby was wonderful and kept up with the snow blowing and shoveling so I could sit around and read and love the kitties. And, now they are predicting another foot tomorrow!!! Oy!!
Talking of the kitties, the last week was very stressful kitty-wise (our first week with them in our home). After several days, we started to seriously consider taking them back...not because we didn't want them, but because they didn't seem to want us! They were refusing to come out from under the bedside table and, more seriously, refusing to eat! Five month old babies must eat!
We texted the adoption team and they told us to squirt baby food into their mouths. So off to Stop 'n Shop I went to get baby food (never, ever thought I'd need that!) and an oral syringe. They hated it, of course, but it worked! The second night I did it, I also offered them their preferred kitty food...and they ate it! Considering the options, I don't blame them...have you ever smelled turkey and gravy baby food?!? Blech!!!! Since then, they have been eating aggressively. Score one for Gerbers!
We are definitely over the moon with these girls and are so very thankful we didn't have to take them back!
I also just finished Sam Harris' memoir, Ham, which was very entertaining. I look forward to telling you about it!
Today will likely consist of some couponing during that crazy ball game no one in my family has any interest in seeing and picking a new read for the week. Are you planning on watching the game, or reading your way through it?
Have a great week!
