Rambling Time

Ok, I know I said I got an idea for a blog post. And I did. A good one! But I just don't feel like writing it today. Maybe sometime next week. I'm a bit stressed out so I thought I would just ramble for a bit instead.

So I'm still working on all of those things from my last blog post. I've almost finished the first guest post, just need to tidy it up a bit. I keep procrastinating but having it hanging over my head just stresses me out more because I feel really bad about not having it done. Then once that's done I'll start the second one. I still don't know the what the wifi situation will be in Florida, so I'd like to get all this stuff done and some extra blog posts before I leave.

I really don't think those drawings I talked about are going to happen. Maybe if I get a free moment to just sit down and not feel like I should be doing a million other things instead...

My freaking cat is sick again! This time with some kind of stomach bug, I think. I'll spare you the gross details but I will say it usually involves me having to clean his tail or paws after he gets out of the litter box. I thought it was just because of the heat because he got better for a day or two but now he's sick again. I don't know what to do. I can't afford to take him back to the vet since I spent so much the last time he was sick. But if he doesn't get better before we leave, I don't think I can go to Florida. It's just stressing me out worrying about the cat all of the time and not knowing what I should do about it.

Don't even get me started on life stuff! My fiance and I have been talking about moving to LA instead of New York (which would have been my first choice, but anything is better than staying here). I'm stressed out about money and wondering if I'll have enough to make it to when we move. I've got a one day NY trip next month and then my dad's 60th birthday is in July so I wanted to wait until after those because if we move all the way across the country, it's gonna be way too hard to come back for them. But I don't know if my money is going to last that long. My fiance filled out a form to get his student loans forgiven since he works for a hospital and has already made over 5 years of payments, so I'm really hoping he'll qualify because that would really help us out.

Uhh...anything good to share...hmm. Last night my niece had her first dance recital! I used to dance when I was around her age, too, so it was really fun to see.

That's about it. I'm just gonna try not to have a nervous breakdown over here. Have a nice weekend, everyone!!


  1. You're coming to Florida? I wonder if you'll be in my neck of the woods. :)

    I'm sorry your kitty is sick again. I hope he gets better and nothing is seriously wrong. If one of my kitties were sick, I'd be a wreck.

    Those are some big decisions you and your fiance have to make. Think it all through because either of you decide.

  2. Ooh. Girl, it sounds like you have too much going on!! Is there any way to pick just one thing to focus on so you can feel as though you're at least making a little progress?
    Best of luck..

  3. Yikes. Okay, take a deep breath and let it out slowly. Maybe scream. That might help let off some stress. I remember reading once that sighing is a stress reliever too.

  4. Geez...I'm exhausted just reading all this!! It will work work out in the end...I know that's so frustratingly cliche, but it's proven true time and time again in my own life ;)

  5. Lots of stuff going on in the Foster life! Just do your best to get through and it will all work out. And be easy on yourself until then!

  6. That's a lot of stuff to worry about. I hope your cat gets better soon, without too much expense. I know what it's like to have to weigh up the money before visiting the vet, but sometimes a little money paid out now saves a lot later on.

    How exciting, though, to have the whole of the US to consider when you're thinking about moving. I hope you get to follow your dreams :-)

  7. Such a big move on the horizon, it will be an adventure either way. I hope your cat gets better.

  8. I'm not a vet but if your kitty is having diarrhea from a simple upset tummy, a little bit of plain yogurt or canned pumpkin (not pie filling) might help. Hope it gets squared away soon.

    1. Also, it's very important to make sure your kitty's getting enough water in to stay hydrated. (If you pull its skin and it doesn't sink into place, you really should get it to the vet.)

      Before that, though, it might be a good idea to give it an electrolyte mixture if it seems droopy.

  9. I'm sorry about your cat. Pets are like family.

    My advice comes from a grandfather I never knew: Take a deep breath and say, "In 50 years, none of this will matter." It helps. And, while it doesn't cure everything, it keeps your focus on what matters most.
    If you have a roof above you, food in your belly, and those you love with you... you're doing good.
