I'm having a hard day today. I'm very sad about Kiwi, I miss him a lot. I've pretty much spent the day doing chores, listening to Christmas music in a vain attempt to cheer myself up, sweating because I have the heat up to 80* for Pickles, and crying. I really want DH home, I miss him and I need a shoulder to cry on.

Sally and Runt both decided that they needed to have massive allergy attacks this week too, so I'm taking them both in this afternoon to our dog and cat vet (which should just be a blast), then have to take Pickles back into the bird vet to be weighed. I'm worried she will have lost weight. She will climb down to where the food is in the cage to eat her veggies, but will only eat her kibble if I hold the bowl for her. She is bothered by the cover that I have on three sides of the cage, but it has to be there to keep the heat in.

This would just be much easier to deal with if DH were home.

I'm sorry you are feeling so down and then having to deal with the dog allergies on top of that. Ugh.

I hope pickles put on some weight for you and I'm glad to hear she's doing a little better.

Thank you, I needed that!

Luckily I did see Pickles climb down on her own and eat some of her kibble! I never thought I'd be so excited to see a bird eat.

In other news I had to bathe the cat. Cat is not impressed. The cats are also going to have to stay in the bathroom for a bit until DH is able to hang a door on the room that Pickles is recovering in. Cats carry things that can make birds sick and our regular bird room is totally off limits to le kitties. DH is going to be less than impressed when he gets home too....

I don't like having mixed emotions.
I would prefer all of my emotions to be singular and very straight-forward.

I AM HAPPY ABOUT THIS THING.
I AM GLAD TO DO THIS.
I DO NOT LIKE THAT.

It would really make my life a lot easier. Of course, right now everything seems to just be tinged with a lot of suck. Even the good stuff. YOU LIKE THIS THING? EXCEPT IT SORT OF SUCKS DOESN'T IT? YEAH. BECAUSE LIFE SUCKS.


Also why are people socially dense. No, as it happens, I do not want you in my life anymore. That's why we are no longer Facebook friends and I don't talk to you anymore. Because you're kind of a bitch and your passive-aggressive stabs at me aren't appreciated. Bye-bee.

First world problems vent ahoy:

The way my bedroom is set up, the vent is in the worst spot. No matter where I put my bed, it blocks off the vent. Therefore, my bedroom is consistently colder than the rest of the house.

The past two days have been particularly cold in Ottawa, and it will only be getting colder. Last night I felt like I was camping outdoors. It was that cold in my room.

I'm investing in a space heater but I'm kinda mad that I have to use one in the first place. Poor vent placement = AUGH.

Maybe I'll just buy a wool blanket and adult footie PJs instead.

^ THIS. SO much this. Mixed emotions shouldn't even be an option. Although then I don't know if I would be happier with no bad thoughts clouding my good mood, or just be completely and totally depressed as nothing 100% good has happened lately.

Get a heated blanket

We have trouble with that too... our bedroom is always a bit cold in winter.
