Just a few brief things.

Thank you all for your well wishes and concerns about Pumpkin! I know some people don’t really like cats or pets in general for that matter, but she’s the first pet I’ve had that’s been mine and she’s been with me since college so I’m kinda obsessed with her.  The good news is that her urine test showed her kidney’s are still functioning, we just really need to keep them that way. So I’m thinking about trying one of those fountain water dishes for her, since she loves drinking from the sink.  I also mixed some tuna juice and water together and froze it, and gave her a cube this morning so we’ll see if she drinks that.

I finally went to a doctor last night, ok CVS Minute Clinic, and they said I have bronchitis.  Now I am fully loaded with 3 different prescriptions including a fun bronchial inhaler.  Apparently I should start to feel better in 2-3 days.  Somewhat worrisome though, is my blood pressure which was sky high at 144 over 90.  For someone who has a history of ridiculously though blood pressure, like 100 over 78, this is confusing.  I’m hoping it’s just the coughing and sickness that has driven it up, but I will be having it checked again when I start to feel better.

I wish I could work from home one day a week every week, it was awesome yesterday.

I had my performance review meeting this morning.  Apparently I’m bad at keeping eye contact with others when they talk to me.  Oops.  Although if that’s all people have to complain about, then I think I’m doing just fine.  I will gladly take my 8% bonus and 1.8% raise and work on my eye contact skills.

My head hurts, I’m blaming a combination of my coughing and high blood pressure.

Happy Leap Day! Real life is for March.  Hope you’re all wearing blue and yellow!

  1. I’m glad Pumpkin’s doing alright. That’s great news!
    I’m really bad about keeping eye contact too. I find it awkward for some reason.

  2. I’m glad you’ve got some drugs to help you feel better- take it easy woman! Still sending good vibes to lil pumpkin and you.

  3. I’m glad that Pumpkin is doing better! It’s so scary when something happens to your pet.

    I’m glad that you got medicine. I hope you feel better soon 🙂

  4. You poor thing!!!! I hope the drugs kick in and make you feel better! That sucks! 😦

  5. Yeah, that eye contact thing is way lame. Congrats on the bonus and raise though! 1.8% is legit!

  6. Sorry I didn’t comment yesterday; I was throwing myself a pity party, but I’m sad about both your cat and the house : (

  7. I think this weekend you should med yourself up, drink two glasses of wine, and pass the f out. Doctor’s orders.

  8. Aw I’m sorry about your sickness and Pumpkin. I have two cats and yeah, they’re my world. This is coming from a legit dog person, too. Not anymore I guess. I was going to suggest the water fountain, too; I’ve heard they’re incredibly helpful for most cats that don’t drink enough. I think I’m going to steal the tuna juice and water idea, mine would seriously love that.

  9. I’m glad Pumpkin is feeling better! I can’t imagine if something happened to my cats…

  10. Hey there, I started taking blood pressure meds about 5 months ago. I’m 36 and thought for a couple of days “I can take care of this with diet and exercise”. I decided a couple of days later just to get the medication. I can’t tell you how much of a difference it made in my life. About 3 days in I was driving to work and realized “I don’t hate everything this morning!” It changed my attitude. I realized I actually felt good all the time. I’m not saying you have a real blood pressure problem, I’m just telling you that you shouldn’t be afraid of taking the medication. I take Benazepril and it’s awesome! It doesn’t change my lifestyle, I just take the meds.

  11. I bet your blood pressure was up b/c you’re not feeling well and in pain. I bet it goes down in a few days. I’m so glad Pumpkin is going to be okay! I love kitties! I heard those water fountains are the bomb diggity for cats.

  12. Oh goodness….feel better soon and defintiely recheck that blood pressure when you are well.
