it has been quite a week. first my daughter suffered a burn when the server in the restaurant spilled the soup on her hand. what surprised me is that she, and everyone else who worked there, just froze and i had to bark out orders for cold water and a something to wipe the burning soup off her hand. and ... they didn't offer a discount on the food!! the upside - sliced tomatoes work wonders on a burn. at the end of 5 hours, there was not a mark nor blister.
we arrived at my parent's after a 5 hour trip down 95 - normally a 2 and a half hour trip. the cat was unusually quiet during that time. my mother was mildly ill and still remains so. the cat was not eating and we had to force her to eat.
i had to take my daughter to the shops on christmas eve to buy me a gift because she couldn't find anything at all in georgetown despite spending all day wednesday there (and numerous hints at what i would like.) found something for herself though. but that's me just kevetching.
my parent's dear neighbour announced after christmas dinner that he has been told he has 4-6 months to live. his cancer has metastized everywhere.
the snow was beautiful on boxing day.
instead of driving home on monday, we stayed another day. it was nice to enjoy the snow without having to shovel or drive. i got mild food poisoning. i swear my mother has been trying to kill me with food for years.
after 15 years of love and companionship, our beloved kitty, neve, died in my arms at 5.30 am. we picked her up from the crematorium today. i miss her bugging me.
