Update on all the happenings!

Hello, all.  It has been hectic around here the last couple of days.  Yes, mama ended up in the ER. They said that the arthur-itis in her right knee is pretty serious, and she has to go to a special doctor (ortho-peedist). She has a walker.  It's that bad.  And she has been hobbling around here and saying "ouch" a lot.  No, really.  No bad words!
But she didn't get any of her errands run at Target. So no puppy pads. But she ordered groceries on line from a local company she uses, and they had most of the supplies she needed.  It just cost more.  And they even have Tempies! So this afternoon we will get them.  Gee.  And I was down to my last few Tempies! Okay, mom, and you were down to your [never mind, kitty]. I was going to say last bag of microwave popcorn, mommy! I promise! They are among her "safe" snacks cause of her diabetes.
Anyway, mom has been on heavy pain pills so she slept a lot yesterday.  And fought blogger and the puter a lot when she was awake. Issues have mostly been solved.  On top of all the puter problems (adobe issues amongst them) she now has something called the fire fox, or fox fire, or something like that, and she had to put up with new Blogger, too. Bad words were said. Trust me.  You wouldn't want your kittens and puppies to hear some of them!
She has spent lots of hours (that she was awake yesterday) saying bad words to the computer and even crying.  It was a highly emotional day around here, after all.
Hey, I did what I could.  I kept her company when she slept.  And stayed out of the way of the walker!
So now she has ER charges (since she wasn't admitted--they charge, including for the ambulance),a taxi ride home (costing more than double the last time she took a cab),  the costs of ordering everything to be delivered instead of boughted in the store, and the fix-it charges for the puter. All on top of the regular stuff she's behind on. And I still need to go to my v-e-t. We seriously need help!  She didn't even order frozen pizzas!
The only thing she laughed about yesterday was the charge for the pain pills (10) they gaved her at the hospital. 64 cents!
I didn't even mention that it turned really cold here in Minnesota. They had snow up north. Brrrrr. It's only officially AUTUMN!
There. Now you are sort of caught up.
Now I'm tired. Lucky kitties don't need pills to sleep!
mommy's sweet brandi
and now blogger erased my far right column stuff.
We can't take this, we can't take this, we can't take this!
Okay, most of them I put back. Now they all crowd the other column. Any easy fixes? And we mean easy!

They had snow up north? We did not hear that! But there was frost here in the 'burbs as predicted.

Rene said...

Oh my gosh!! We are sorry to hear about your mom, that's truly awful. We are purring for her.

Tillie and Georgia said...

Brandi, we are sending big purrs to you and your Mom. We hope her knee is not hurting too much.
Oooo!! We think it is too early for cold weather and snow :0

We are so sorry about your mom's knee sweet Brandi and we hope the ortho doctor will be able to help her. Sorry too about Blogger messing up your page wish I had suggestions for you on fixing it. Hugs and nose kisses from Chancy, me and the kitties.

Sorry about all your problems - I have one replaced knee and one that needs to be replaced, but I don't have the $8k it will take to do it. Once you get used to Firefox, I think you will like it better than Internet Explorer. Good luck. T.

Tillie and Georgia said...

Thanks Brandi for telling us about catnip bubbles!! Mom was not sure there was such a thing, so we will get her to check the pet stores. They certainly would taste better!! heehee

We're so sorry your mom's been having such a rough week. : (

If it's Coborn's Delivers that your mom got the groceries from, we've noticed that they sometimes have coupons online and on Facebook. We're on their mailing list and every few months or so we'll get a $10 or even $20 coupon.

As for Blogger, we've been hearing lots of complaining from LOTS of peeps. Your bloggie looks great though so you must have figured it out. When we switched a few months ago we had to go into the advanced template settings and fiddle around with the layout widths. So far so good.

Hang in there and keep purring. We'll send some extra purrs over for you.
