The topic: Just checking in
Friday, October 3, 2003 I've been pretty busy, but I figured I'd just check in to let you all know everything is okay.
This morning on our walk, Brian and I talked about OC and I remembered how thin OC has gotten this past year. It's quite possible, like Brian said, that he just curled up somewhere, went to sleep and never woke up. I think I like to think of that more than the other possibilities. I remember how docile Blackie had gotten when we brought him in. He died at the vet's having fluid drawn from his lungs. He was only here about forty-five days. The vet diagnosed possible cancer. And I look at our population, with the kidney disease and the urinary blockages that we've had. It's not so farfetched to believe that OC had a terminal disease. He was at least ten years old.
I do miss him, though. I look for him almost everytime I go out front. I don't know what I expect, but I know in my heart I won't ever see him again, not as OC.
I'm in the final push to get the house cleaned before our Disneyland trip. I'm working on the kitchen, unarguably the worst room in the house. I started it last week by scrubbing the tile counters and cleaning the stove. Yesterday, I got the majority of the cabinets cleaned (Murphy's Oil Soap, then a rub with a clean cloth, then rubbed a furniture wax into them) and the oven cleaned. I'm finishing up the cabinets today. Then I want to do the bedroom today, too.
That will leave my bathroom, shampooing the furniture and washing the floors. Oh, yeah, and washing the windows and screens, which shouldn't really be that big of a deal since I've been keeping on top of it.
Well, the raffle is up and running. Go enter!
I've still got lots to do, I'd like to have my end of the cleaning done by the 11th, so I can rest and maybe lay in the sun, if the weather permits, until it's time for our trip.
