More robins have been in the front bushes this morning. We’re getting a big winter storm on top of what’s already out there. Everything is already icy.
I hear the robins chirping. And Ivy is up on the cupboard at the front window thwapping her tail to show her excitement.
There are snow flurries dancing in the air. I attempted to do a Shipt order yesterday but everyone is booked up because of the weather.
It won’t be above freezing for about 10 days. And in the teens otherwise.
Kendra just called and said she was at Walmart and what did I need. Then she’s going by the vet’s office and picking up Charlie meds and prescription food that I paid for over the phone.
I didn’t ask her to do all this. She’s just thoughtful that way.
I hope her car, a Tahoe, manages to get her around safely on this ice.
I can’t get Charlie’s Vetmedin again. It’s on Autoship with Chewys, but they can’t get it. My vet can’t get it.
This happens every year about this time. I should have ordered double or triple, but it’s expensive.
One of you so kindly sent me your Vetmedin that you didn’t need anymore and that’s what he’s taking now. I’ll have to start rationing the pills and giving him less.
I’m reading “Saving Megan” by D.J. Palmer.
Megan is 15 and in and out of hospitals and doctor’s offices. No one seems to be able to diagnose what’s wrong with her.
Long ago her parents lost a baby boy to SIDS.
Becky, Megan’s mother, grew up in a home where her mother used her to con the system into giving her disability benefits. Becky knew what to tell doctors and social workers when her mother needed her to.
So is that kind of upbringing influencing Becky’s actions now?
They are called to bring Megan in for tests at the hospital and Megan is rushed away by the doctor. After three hours they’re told that Megan is now a ward of the state and they’re keeping her on the psychiatric wing to figure out if Megan is having psychosomatic symptoms.
Or is it Becky they’re actually protecting Megan from?
I am listening to Jim Brickman’s rendition of the Carpenters’ songs. Do you remember them?
His version, embellished in his own unique way, is heavenly. I can listen to it over and over again. And I often do.
“Pure Carpenters” is relaxing and so very beautiful.
You can go here to listen to some of his beautiful piano music. I can’t get enough of his soothing CD’s.
