I think Miss Mew has had a stroke. Her back legs aren't working, & her front legs aren't really working either. Her motor skills are minimal at this point. She's able to hold her head up for a little bit, but mostly she's just lying down.

We tried tempting her to eat yesterday with some tuna, and she refused it. First time she's never wanted tuna. She's stopped drinking now too. I took her to her bowl & she wasn't interested.

The mister called the vet today with her symptoms & they agreed that it is very likely a stroke that happened. We are just trying to make her comfortable for now. I've had her since 1994, when I was in university. I am so grateful for being gifted with her presence in my life. I've had a bit of a cry after cuddling with her.

I know what we have to do, but we're not ready.

slowlyunfolding: (tea!)

I've been laid out by this mofo of a flu. I came home early from work on Friday & have been lolling around ever since. I had too many meds in my system...or I was having a reaction to the NyQuil/DayQuil as I has the worst headache last night. I knew I'd hit the limit for Advil yesterday so I cut myself off more meds.

I tried ice packs on my temples, yoga, drinking water, slathering on the Vicks... nothing worked for long.

I got myself so worked up, I thought I was dying.



I think there were other freak outs, but I can't remember them. Suffice to say, I have not died, & have managed to battle back against the headache.

The weather has made its descent into winter. The wind is sharp & tears through my coat. No amount of burrowing into wool seems to help.

It was snowing this morning. Lovely big flakes of freezing coldness. I can't wait to get out of here today.

Today has been full of mean spirited people.

My blood pressure has gone thru the roof. I'm slowly calming down, but I feel like I'm back in high school.

So these young people just took over the cafe with their guitars. What's amazing is how good they are. Maybe if I get jacked up enough on tea I will shout 'play Freebird!!!'

I'm a smartass. I win.

Sigh. Now I want to be doodling in my journal.

I'm in Coffee Culture being subversive & drinking tea. The " irritating giggle over nothing while spreading their homework over the whole table" girls are here already. A coiple of weeks agoI had the NERVE to sit at the booth they usually glomp. They were bewildered & confused.

Also, there is a girl watching videos on her laptop & she's wearing a hat that I last saw in fashion in 1986. I think it may be an ironic statement. I keep looking around for Molly Ringwald to bust in the door & snatch her hat back.

Oh look. There's the guy who came into the office years ago wanting someone to help him keep the money the bank accidentally over-deposited to his account. He was tricky since he had already withdrawn the money.

Ah, the strange stories I have.

Hmm. Now I feel sleepy. So enthused about going to yoga tonight. I need to relax & unwind.

Just started my tea. Lovely langorous day. I've re-brunetted my hair, this time not too dark. I put conditioner on the ends so they wouldn't soak up more colour. It seems to have worked out well.

Had a bit of a disturbed sleep last night. I think it was due to being tired & hormonal. Also kicking off the blankets & waking up cold didn't help.

I feel like I've been doing something naughty posting from Dreamwidth. I do like it quite a lot, but I miss you hosers.

I think my ovaries may have kicked into high gear after seeing that photo of Daddy!Misha. I'm afraid that time is running out or something. I am old after all. I think fear has a lot to do with my waiting so long on the kid front. Still have lots of talking to do with the mister on the subject. I still really want to move to BC. Buuuut, that would mean starting all over again. That would definitely be difficult to get established & then have kids. I would be out of time by that point.

The thought of buying a house gives me pause though. I just am nervous & afraid of not having enough money. It's not an easy decision nor something to just leap into without consideration. I guess nobody ever really has it figured out. Maybe it's time to start living, instead of waiting for the perfect conditions (that don't exist anyway.)

Hmm. So many thoughts & possibilities.

Another week coming to a close. I am completely discombobulated on what day it is. Not a good feeling to live in such a fog of confusion.

I'm lying in bed. My head is at an awkward angle & for some reason it sounds like I'm breathing too loud. I wish I had a laptop, but I'm afraid that I'd never leave the warm & cuddlesome environs of my bed.

My eyelids droopeth. Time for the sleeping portion of this evening's entertainment. Nighty night.

I am in a bit of a funk. It's due to keeping an erratic schedule. The biggest reason I am in a funk is not doing a yoga practice. It's half hearted at best.

All the studying this past year has taken a toll. I just have to do it & not fuss about. What I really need is to restart my meditation practice.

Then I feel guilty for not practicing regularly which spirals into what have I accomplished in my life, why can't I remember to clean all the things, where am I going, etc.

The TL;DR version: I'm in a funk. Need yoga & meditation practice. Do not need to beat self up. Do not judge self.
