I've Had Better Days
Wednesday, June 30, 2010
Hai K'nai, the cat who adopted us last October, came home yesterday morning with a bloody and mangled throat where he had been attacked by another animal. (The vet said that it was probably another cat. Whew! I was afraid that it was one of the neighborhood kids who was taking this 'Twilight' thing to an extreme.*) $250 later, the cat was back home--having had, I hope, a lesson in pacificism.
I called Kaiser first thing this morning because the husband was experiencing severe pain in his lower left quadrant. He saw his doctor within a couple of hours and she made an appointment with the surgeon for a consultation for hernia surgery. Good news--he'll be fine/ Bad news--surgery.
I won't even go into the argument about whether or not the air conditioning on the truck was still covered under warranty. (Who has ever heard that the one-year warranty on the job they did last July isn't in effect because we haven't used the air con enough for the what's-its not to dry out??? Why in the world would we have used the air con in the Pacific NW since last September??? I'm never in the mood for this sort of b.s. but particularly, I wasn't in the mood yesterday!)
This summer has pretty much sucked so far.
*Before you get all worked up, the 'Twilight' comment was my feeble attempt at a joke.
