I hope they can do something for him.

The day was pretty normal for a Monday. I did the gaming program, and it went well. I called the vet during lunch, and he got back to me during the program, when I missed the call. But I called back and got through later and he said to bring him in.

I'll have to go by cab because [personal profile] mashfanficchick's mother cn't take me, alas. They have stuff of their own to deal with.

That's about all.

Oh, the FWiB called but couldn't talk long as he didn't feel well. But we talked, which ws good.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. The vet.

3. Bjorn did eat a tiny bit tonight.

4. My boss.

5. Lovely weather.

6. Vernor's Ginger Ale.

Things that make me happy

I like when others post things that make them grateful, happy or just glad to be alive. Because I certainly am glad to be around, back at work (or having an unexpected day off, like today) and eating chocolate. So here are three of my happys today.

I worked with a lovely new nursing student all weekend--and funnily, since I am generally the first person the manager goes to with the preceptor students (who work with us for two to three months), it turned out, I was the third in line. The first nurse M was with the Sunday before was off this weekend, and the second nurse M was supposed to shadow had a VERY complicated assignment which was not at all appropriate for a brand new student. So I inherited her, and we got along fantastic. She's smart, funny, and used to be a professional ballet dancer. Cool, since I was once a very amateur dancer in college theatre. I was a bit in awe of her, and she in me for having worked in the ICN for 29 years. LOL. She asked if I'd be back on Wednesday, which I am, but I'm not sure the protocol usurping the original nurse's position. I know the other nurse well, and have no problem being her second when needed.

A story I posted on AO3 in the Lewis fandom has 83 kudos! That is by far the most kudos I have ever had on any story, any fandom, including Starsky and Hutch where I have over 120 posted fic!

I have watched three episodes of The Orville, and like it very much. I am not a big Trekker--I mean I like Trek and all its versions well enough, but particularly never liked Kirk. (Love Picard and many other characters.) I genuinely like all the characters on Orville--they seem nice, happy to be on a ship, and enjoying working together. Even Ed and his ex-wife Kelly who socialize and chat quite a lot for a divorced couple. Also love the two helmsmen (can't recall their names--the redhead is Gordon?) and the cute first officer Alana. The episode the other day where the big guy from the all male planet and his partner had their female baby's sex reoriented to male was really thought provoking and sad.

Not actually a happy but--The water is turned off today in my building today (as it has been on and off for several weeks due to ongoing plumbing retrofitting) so I can't wash the dishes, laundry or floor. Oh, well.

Bjorn hasn't eaten at all

Not yesterday, not today. I'm calling the vet tomorrow.

Today Oldest Brother brought my prescriptions that I left in his car and we went out to eat at Applebee's. It was a very nice time. Then we came home and puttered on the computer for awhile until he had to take a nap. Then he left for work. It was a very good time.

After he left I read until the FWiB called, and we had a nice long talk. Then I went back to reading again.

Gratitude List:

1. Oldest Brother.

2. Bjorn for as long as i have him.

3. Good meal.

4. Sybil's healthy.

5. On-line friends.

6. Good books.

Movie day

Got up later than I should have, but had enough time to shower and have coffee and breakfast before Oldest and Middle Brothers got here.

We went to the Bay Terrace movie theater, which is one of the ones where you pick your seats when you order your tickets, and they have those fabulous reclining lounge chairs for seats. We saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which was not as good as the first one, I didn't think. But it was OK, and we enjoyed it.

After that we went to the Five Guys in the mall, and had our usual after movie meal, and then after that we went to the drugstore and picked up my prescriptions. Then we went back to my apartment and hung out here for about an hour.

The FWiB called and they left. The FWiB and I had a nice talk, and that's about it for the day. Except that Oldest Brother told me when he called that I'd left my prescriptions in the car. So he's going to bring them tomorrow and we'll spend part of the day together.

Bjorn ate well this morning but I don't think he's going to eat well tonight. Still, I'll try to get him to. I clipped his front claws while Oldest Brother was here to help me, but I hardly needed his help, Bjorn let me do it easily. I need to clip Sybil as well but I doubt she'll be so malleable.

Gratitude List:

1. My brothers, especiall Oldest Brother being willing to bring my med back tomorrow.

2. The FWiB.

3. Bjorn.

4. Day out.

5. Lovely weather.

6. Five Guys bacon cheeseburgers.

Busy day

Started with therapy, which was good. I got a little bit into some of my real problems with hoarding and cleaning.

Then to work which was again very short staffed. Not too busy though because the schools are closed for Rosh Hashanah. Got through that OK.

After work I headed for Boston Market as usual, when my phone rang. The Kid called! So I stood outside the restaurant and had a nice talk. It was good to hear from her.

Went to Boston Market, and the FWiB called. So we talked too. And that was very nice.

Then my meeting, which was good. J made it for the first time in awhile, and we took the bus back together after.

Bjorn ate this morning, at least some, and he ate tonight, at least some. I'm going to try and get him to eat more tonight after I get done here.

Tomorrow is the day Oldest Brother and I take Middle Brother to the movies. Which should be fun.

Gratitude List:

1. Bjorn ate at least some twice today.

2. The FWiB.

3. The Kid.

4. Therapy.

5. My meetings and the people there.

6. Friends.

Took the day off

Because my period is so heavy I have to change tampons almost every hour, and I just felt draggy, and I oerslept cause I forgot to set the alarm.

So I spent most of the day in bed, with one brief foray out to the bagel store for brunch and to the discount store for milk and pads. And a few brief forays to the living room to use the computer. I finished reading The God Stalker Chronicles, which is God Stalk and Dark of the Moon, which I had read before of course, but now for the first time I downloaded the next two to my Nook as an omnibus edition, and I'm reading them.

The FWiB called and we had a good talk. And [personal profile] mashfanficchick texted a bit, so that was nice.

Bjorn ate very little for dinner last night and little for breakfast, but he just ate ok for dinner tonight, so I feel better. I think that I'm losing him though, and I don't know what to do.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWIB.

2. Bjorn while I have him.

3. Good books, and my Nook to read them on.

4. Time to take off.

5. Bagels.

6. Friends.

Busy day

We were short-staffed to start out with today, and then one person went home with a migraine, leaving us only three people to finish out the day. We managed somehow but we were kept hopping! I did the Teen Lounge, got about 10 kids.

After work I got a call from the FWiB and we talked as I went to my psychiatrist appointment. Got there early so to kill time I went to Dunkin' Donuts and had coffee and a French cruller.

After the appointment I stopped and did a small bit of shopping on the way home.

Had my left over sundae from Carvel last week.

Called The Kid when I got home but she didn't answer.

Bjorn did not eat breakfast at all, but was eating dinner when last seen. We'll see how he does.

TMI, I know, but I started a period for the first time in several months today. I had thought I was done with them.

Happy New Year to all who celebrate!

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Cats.

3. Survived the day.

4. Ice cream.

5. My psychiatrist and my meds.

6. Didn't need my umbrella.

Fairly normal day

I went to work, got there on time, did the laptop program with the teens, got a reasonable turnout. That was it for work.

The FWiB didn't call, but I knew he wasn't going to because he went out to dinner, so no biggie.

After work I went to my meeting, which was good. I chaired, the topic was patience.

Bjorn ate a good breakfast this morning so I feel better about him not eating at all well last night. We shall see how he eats tonight.

And that's about it.

Still no word from Dreamwidth on my support request.

Gratitude List:

1. Bjorn ate well this morning.

2. The FWiB.

3. My meetings and the people there.

4. Only rained in the afternoon.

5. Air conditioning, still.

6. Bed soon.

Well. Looks like I solved the line break problem on my own. I unchecked the "disable auto format" box, and now it seems to be working.

Bad accident in Flushing

A tour bus hit an MTA bus and careened into Kennedy Chicken, killing three (the driver of the tour bus, a passenger on the MTA bus, and a pedestrian), injuring at least 19, and starting a fire in Kennedy Chicken. I was home asleep at 6 am when this happened around the corner from me. But I was affected by the traffic snarl it caused, because my bus was rerouted and I had to walk up to the Whitestone Expressway to get my bus.

Aside from that the day was OK. I did the gaming program with the teens and it was moderately successful.

After work the FWiB called and we talked while I went to meet up with [personal profile] mashfanficchick and her mother. We went to Applebee's for $6.99 burgers for dinner. Delicious.

Came home and fed the cats and turtle. Bjorn ate this morning, but tonight he ate almost nothing. I may have to take him back to the vet.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Friends.

3. Wasn't involved in the accident.

4. Delicious burger.

5. Air conditioning.

6. Bjorn as long as I have him.

Still having to put breaks in by hand, still no word from Dreamwidth.
