We're in a cold snap here. A "five cats on the bed" cold snap, and since Claire won't sleep on the bed, that's as cold as it gets. It's probably 45? Brr.

I am thankful for the makers of generic NyQuil. I'm so congested and headache-y, it's either a cold or just being tired from working so hard. Or both.

later on 12/9/14
Booked my Costa Rica flight! First week of Feb. Now I have to figure out the rental car, and if I need any kind of international driver's license. My passport doesn't expire until August, so I'm all good there. Besides seeing Dad, of course, I'm excited to see a part of the world I've never been to. I bought a travel guide to CR after Dad moved, but I mostly just looked at the pictures. Now I can start coming up with ideas on places to go and things to see.

My Christmas tree now looks official - it has all of Eve's gifts for the boys under it. She came over tonight to do some secret wrapping, away from the prying eyes of the minions.

12/9/14
Holiday cards done! I had to go out and get stamps (because I forgot yesterday), but they are all done.

I told my new boss (we have a new Director of Nursing) that I'm planning to go visit Dad in February, and she said OK, as long as it isn't the same week that she'll be gone. Now I have to look at airfares. BofA not only replaced my credit card (after the erroneous shopping spree someone took the number on) but they also increased my credit limit.

12/8/14
Note to self: do not take packages to the Post Office on a Monday in December. The place was packed, even the self-service kiosk line. But all of my holiday packages are in the mail. Now I must summon the energy to do cards.

12/3/14
I took the little guy to the vet (I'm calling him DH, short for "Dickhead," because he looks like he has a penis on his head and I'm 12 years old). He's probably 9-10 years old, weighs 10 pounds but will be heavier once he fattens up some. He's not microchipped, but he is spayed. Unfortunately he's FIV-positive. I either need to find a home with other FIV+ cats, or be exceedingly happy that he isn't fighting with my crew.

12/2/14
Happy birthday Eve!! We celebrated with dinner at the Indian restaurant in Litchfield Park. So good (and not crazy hot). Now that Thanksgiving is over, I put up the tree in my guest room (to keep the cats off it).

Speaking of cats... So I put out food and water on the porch for the strays that come by. The other night, I was setting out food, and I heard a "meow" from behind the porch pillar. This gray and white tuxedo cat came out, let me pet him, and long story short, he's living in my house. I had him in my room with the door locked, and slowly introduced him to the others. Shockingly - no fighting and no scratching or hissing at all. Poor little guy, he's skin and bones and looks like he's lived eight of his nine lives.
