Yesterday I was feeling rather poorly and tried the best I could to have a gentle day. One big and challenging task was on the agenda and that was taking Escher to the vet. He was terrified. Justin managed to get him in the carrier but before we even got in the room with the vet, Escher had peed with fear. Luckily they were gentle with him, cleaned him all up and gave him his shots. The vet had a good look at him and said he seems to be doing well, though maybe weights just a titch more than he should. We talked about his nervous ways but also the progress he's made. When we got home he hid under the couch for about 10 minutes but then he even let me pet him. I had a big aha that made me feel better. Being scared of scary things (like going to the vet) is perfectly normal. As long as he's not transmuting that into a fear of everything, including us, then I think he's doing well.
I have been obsessed with doing the fill-in-squares-with-gel-pens funness, but today I ran out of painted squares! And was not feeling up to painting, which is sad but true. Solution: make a black-out version. Now I have a big big page to fill. Fun times.
Got out to my library to pick up first season of Penny Dreadful, thanks for the recommendation Shannon! Also got groceries which felt like it took forever and took the life out of me but it's done. I have also started watching Nashville at night and am shocked at how much I am enjoying it! That young little blonde singer has the voice of an angel, reminds me how much I do like folksy music. The country? I skip a lot of it, LOL. Interesting stories though.
