Max’s Homecoming Day!

August 15, 2003

After work, BvP and I will zip to Target to purchase bowls, food, and the required squeak-toy for our new addition. Then we zip to the Animal Orphanage to bring our Maxie….to the vet. Naturally, I’ll want him checked out before he enters the kingdom of the cats. Maybe the vet will have a better idea of how old Max is. Some playtime outside afterward maybe…THEN a bath if he still has shelter-stink. I’m jittery. Hope it goes well.

Last night, as Charlie contentedly spread out in the middle of the carpet for his early-evening nap, I felt a wave of guilt. The cats are totally going to HATE life (and me) once Max shows up. They’ll cope (as they’ve all learned to cope with the additions and losses of each other, I suppose) but for a while, they won’t be happy.

The non-bloggable worries from yesterday have subsided, leaving the original non-blog-able worries to be worried about. Get that? 🙂

Wt: 143 pounds?? (repeated head-smashing against desk) That puts me 10 pounds away from revised goal. Blech. Makes me want cupcakes
Mood: Apprehensive about Max’s transition to our apartment.
Work docket: Damon out today. Did the bar section update, tweaked the center package on the homepage to showcase the blackout stories. (From which we were spared down here in Southern NJ…amazing what a difference 10 exits on the turnpike make). Hot Properties, and grab more photos for Community Guide.
Lunch: Thoroughly disgusted with diet lunches. Didn’t bring any.
Afternoon/Evening: I was going to go to Jenna’s birthday party tonight, but will be tied up with all things Max. I’ll send the gift over there with Mom.
Weekend: More Max-mania. The family’s going to see Mom-Mom’s grave on Sunday, and then visit her house one more time before it’s sold later this week. I don’t think I can go there. I have warm memories of her house. Don’t want to see it empty.

And now…the FRIDAY FIVE!!!
