Awesome blood red total eclipse of the moon last night. I stayed up to watch it.

Jenny (from the block) is not pregnant - she's actually spayed (they found the scar). She isn't microchipped either, so I have no way of finding out where she came from. So.... she's staying with me for now. Surprisingly enough, she gets along with the others really well, especially Marvin. I think he has a crush on her. I had her tested for FeLV (negative) and had her microchipped so I don't lose her, altho she'll be indoors.

I've nicknamed possibly-pregnant kitty "Jenny (from the block)" - she's the snuggliest thing ever. I can't tell at all if she's pregnant, can't wait for the vet appt. I did manage to trap the mystery kitty who I've been feeding. He lasted about six hours indoors before clawing my hand pretty badly and yowling up a storm. So I let him back outside and will keep feeding. Will worry about him after I figure out what's going on with JFTB.

Work? Full of crazy. I swear the full moon is lasting all month long.

And yesterday I went back to have the left side of my jaw poked and prodded. How fun.

My plan was to stay at Irene's last night, to try and catch Preggo this morning. So I get to Irene's, put my bag down, turn around - and there she is, scratching at the door. So I scooped her up and brought her back to Buckeye last night, and she's just making herself right at home. Super friendly. I'm not sure she's pregnant tho - going to the vet on Tuesday afternoon for an ultrasound to check (and also to check for a microchip). I also borrowed a cat trap from my coworker, to try and bring in the cat who wanders Verrado - the one I feed at night.

And oh yes, it was 102 degrees on my car thermometer today. I put the AC on last night, because it's been in the 90's this week (yes, hotter than usual for this time of April), and I couldn't nap.

Can't feel the right side of my face - the dental chick numbed me up with Novocaine before the "deep cleaning." And I get to go back on Wednesday for the left side! I really like the dentist, he did a thorough assessment of my jaw, neck, and teeth. His recommendation to fix the misaligned jaw? Braces.

Seriously.

I said I would consult with the orthodontist before making any kind of decision about braces. First, the deep cleanings and fixing some cracked fillings.

Braces, ha. I wore them for two years in high school, I don't have any desire to do them again!

I had asked my boss last week if I could change from hourly to salaried, because a) I've been putting in a lot of hours some weeks, fewer on other weeks, and b) I want to work from home (provided they set me up with a work laptop and remote access) so I can do computer-related nurse-y stuff at night, instead of letting it pile up until I'm there next. And today I got the answer - yes! So no more clock punching!

4/3/4
Today is "fight with Pippin to get into the cat carrier so we can go get her vaccines up to date" day. I am beyond excited with antici (say it) pation. But first, I'm waiting on the AC guy to come and do a checkup on my air conditioning system. I do not want it to die in August.

It's kitten season. Irene and I are on a mission to find her friendly neighborhood pregnant cat, nicknamed Whore because she gets around so much, and bring her indoors to have her kittens. Hopefully we'll find her this week, I have no idea how far along she is.

My neighbors on the alley side are having fun with painting the inside of their backyard gates. I joined in the fun and did mine in rose pink, which matches the pink in my table umbrella. Soon, I will have money to do the yard with landscaping. I know I keep saying that.

4/1/14
Happy birthday, Pippin. Eleven fat years. Literally.

I'm off to get xrays today. My new PCP doc is very thorough with getting baselines of everything that's ever been wrong with me, so we did a slew of labs last week, and today is xray day, to see if my neck pain isn't from a pinched nerve after all.
