I feel a peace. Utah had no seizures last night. I pray that we will get this under control soon.
I am sitting here at my desk. Yes, the desk I purchased for myself a few weeks back. I love it. I love not carrying my laptops around. I love having my place. I searched and searched on-line for a one drawer file cabinet or something that can sit in the corner next to it but did not find anything that would match. I may try to find some sort of basket.
I am listening to Pandora, my new love. And when I look down...
I bought these for the kitchen yesterday. A bit dark but I might like them.
Better than throwing mail in a shoebox and keys and stuff in a glass serving bowl :)
Oh and those of you who are tracking my kitchen drama, these are my old cabinets.
These are the NOT matching new ones they put in thinking they were close enough. The new ones are more narrow and have and extra center piece. See the space between the cabinets and around the drawer?
The good news is they went ahead and installed the appliances (even though they will have to tear it all out again when the get the right cabinets). So we were able to have a Thanksgiving dinner. Nice!
Oh and here is the other great thing. I love it. Our old frig was 19 years old.
Yes, stuff temporarily on top of the frig as I still do not have a pantry.
More importantly, this is a picture of my beautiful kids from last night. Very little room on the bed for me but oh, it was so nice to sleep on the bed.
Here is a new favorite. It is on the way home from the vet last Thursday. Utah was about to fall off the seat so he just rapped his head around Sierra and fell asleep.
Lastly, and most importantly, seizures were as follows:
Tuesday - 9:20PM, 9:44PM, and 10PM
Wednesday - 9:30PM
Friday - 5:30 AM
None, last night or this morning, thank god.
Thanks again for all your support.

Wow, not exactly sure whereto start. Lots of updates but lets start with the crazinest. You may have seen that my kitch had water damage from our hot water heater. Anyway, I thought I was going to finally get my kitch back (or at least part of it) last Friday.
The boxes of lower cabinets were dropped off Thursday afternoon. Friday was crazy. Worked from hom. The cabinet guys came to install around 9. Bug people came at 11 (as we are interested in changing from our current annual spray people). Refrigerator delivery came at one.
The good news is that the frig is super cool. Our old frid was making a clunking noise and it is 19 years old.
The cabinet guys were super nice (one experienced one not so much). They worked until almost 5 and did not finish. No appliances yet (meaning stove, microwave, oven, dishwasher or sink). Ok, maybe Monday.
Then saturday I got up walked the pups, then went to Wal-mart to pick up liner paper stuff. I was measuring and cutting for the cabinets and drawer and noticed quickly that the drawers were much more narrow. I measured... 2 inches more narrow
I try not to get stressed. i can deal with this. Then my DH gets up and we are talking and wondering how are we loosing all this space. AH HA.. the cabinets they ordered are different than our upper cabinets. These cabinets have a space between the doors and also between the drawers. THIS IS BAD.
I messaged the guy that ordered them. He messages back and says, oh yeah, they don't carry your cabinets anymore. I don't think these are that different. He assumes that I am going to be ok with this as we have established a good relationship over the last 8 weeks. YIKES, my husband is NOT happy at all. Now he is offering to get involved.
I could go on and on. Long story short the kitchen guy wants to have the cabinet guy take a look. Maybe we can put the old doors (which are larger) on the new cabinets. However then the drawers are still 2 inches more narrow. They would have to cut into the new cabinets to make this possible work. My DH does not want this rigged and does not want more narrow cabinets. I honestly don't either. What a mess.
We did some research and I think we found our cabinets or close. They are not Home Depot cabinets. We found by looking in our existing cabinets that they are Executive Kitchen cabinets. Again, trying to make a long story short. I reach out to the great guy (within the same company) that worked on drying the kitchen for advise. The said he was happy to help work through this. My husband is getting more and more frustrated and insists on talking to the kitchen guy. UG
This is where I strongly consider should I just gone on handling this all on my own. No idea. But now DH and are are griping back and forth about all this. We will talk to he guy this afternoon. He was not available for a call last night.
OK... What else???
Work is very busy.
Finally got my hair done. It was looking bad.
Love my desk.
Weight is still up but I am not eating as poorly.
I have not gotten on the treadmill but am walking the pups.
Utah and I have gone through a fair ordeal. Still seeing a specialist every 2 weeks. I will have to prove an update. His liver levels are finally better now though.
Thanks for listening.
