he almost bought a rescue cat today. i say bought because the adoption fee was too much for us to afford right now. he was really upset when he got back from the pet store. some day we will own a home and i will get him a harem of black cats to love and cuddle. it was a pure black cat with big ears and green eyes and very vocal and loving, he said. it will get adopted. i wish we could take in every cat we run into that's homeless. but we just took in the two ferals, and simon is still going through his adjustment period. we just can't have another right now. my rule is no more than we can afford the vet bills on. and i still have to get felix microchipped.
i was hoping by xmas we'd be able to adopt a dog. doc needs a dog in his life. cats are nice for cuddling and purring, but doc is a guy, he wants to play. beyond a cat's patience. he needs a dog to follow him around and bark at strangers. i've felt guilty ever since he gave his dog up to move out here. i gave my dog up, too. but i've had to do that before, doc never had. it was hard on him. as you could imagine.
there is nothing good on tv tonight and i used up all my minutes talking to kelli already this month. i think i'll take a nap and a bath. or maybe a bath and a nap. possibly a nap in the bath. but those two things will be a definite part of my evening. then maybe something on netflix. i swear, if you just pay for the online sub, you are getting ripped off. they have nothing worthwhile online. i have 20 movies in my instant queue, and something like 80 in my mail queue. and i prefer to watch them online. they just have nothing available.
should i have another cuppa? no. apple juice time. i don't even think i'll finish the cup i have going. could i finally be getting tired of coffee? i know it will happen eventually, now would be good. before doc switches to tea and cuts me off.
