December 10, 2009

Remember when they were so sweet??? NOT ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!


I have had an interesting day, to say the least. The last part of it has been amazing and the first part of it was, well…horrendous. I was a screaming maniac for a few hours there.

First of all, the assmaster of the house locked one of the cats (*remember the cats that wouldn’t come in last night??–one of those) in the entertainment center when he closed it up last night. This morning when I got up, I hear this pitiful crying and several other cats are sitting around the cabinet, laughing and making fun of the one trapped inside. You know how cats are…they can be so cruel. One is pawing at the door, and when I open it, out pops my Junko, glaring and hissing at me, like it was all my fault. She is furious and takes on all the other cats that are there. They scatter and I nearly fall over one who darts beneath my feet.

Now, if you’ll remember from yesterday, I have a pinched nerve in my back and my knee is screwed up again, so stumbling is not really a recommended event. I trip, I swear, and cats laugh as they dart away. I grumble and mumble. Then I find that some cat has broken my little crystal rocking horse that is one of my Christmas decorations. I am furious. Then I find that someone (cat) has taken a dump in the corner, beside the aquarium, in about a 6 inch square space. Of course, I have to try to get on my hands and knees and twist around to get to it to clean it up. I am nearly crying with pain now. 15 minutes later, someone (cat) has taken a dump AGAIN, on my carpet beside the entertainment center. By now I am yelling as I clean up another mess. I suspect it is the cat who is mostly an outside cat, as I see her pee in the litter boxes, but have never seen her poop in one.

Then I discover that (naturally) the cat who was locked in the entertainment center has pooped in there. So, once again, screaming in pain, I am on my knees trying to clean out the little space below the tv, where she has pooped. Once again, little cats are hiding around the corners watching me, laughing silently with their little paws over their mouths.

It was a whole morning of this stuff. In between I would sit in front of the computer and lay on the heating pad. Then I got a call and someone was coming, so I tried to put up the rest of the Christmas decos and vacuum up 500 tons of dog and cat hair…stopping every 15 minutes to lie on the heating pad. I actually got almost everything done.

Tonight we went to the group anniversary and had a delightful time. A man with 50+ years sober who helped start the group was telling a little about what AA was like here 50 years ago…how you had to drive either to St. Louis or to Springfield to go to a meeting. It was fascinating. Saw a lot of people we hadn’t seen in a while and had a good dinner.

Then we came home and now….I’m going to bed.

Awww, hate to read you had such a dreadful day... and the pain you are enduring. I hope the someone doesn't lock the cat up in the e-center tonight and they will at least use the litter box... have a better day, today... I hope! Hugs!

Courage in the face of adversity -- rest that back if it isn't impossible.

Get some well deserved rest.

It was hard not to laugh at your description of the cats, but I know it really wasn't funny....especially with your pinched nerve and knee.

Naughty cats. Animals are just animals, darn it.

Glad your evening ended up well with that meeting and hearing some AA history from your area.

I pray for you,

Whoa! That was NOT a fun morning!
I woke up to my cat hurling all the way down the hall a couple days ago, fun fun. I'm not having the physical problems you are though. I just thought I'd share :) Hope the cats and your back and knee leave you alone today. jeNN

OMG your day...this is just awful!

I hope you got some good sleep and the doc appointment went well! Keep us posted.

I have one of my dogs like that...he is the poopinest creature when pissed off...I have no idea. Luckily as you know this too shall pass....

Love you

What a day, Annie. The cat thing. What can be said? I've got sympathy for you. Enjoy the season! I love your rice tube thingies. Did you know you can put lavendar in there too?

Oh, how I feel for you. I'm such a bitch sometimes, I think I would have put the entertainment poo on the assmasters pillow. Well that's really a fleeting thought, I don't do that kind of thing anymore, but I can still think it.
