I wasn't feeling the blogging love this evening but I thought about it and decided to let you in on a big secret. Not everyday is filled to the brim with wildflowers and kitten cuddles.
For example today started at 6 am with a very rude awakening when I turned on the coffee, lifted the lid of the compost container on the counter and yelped when large fat juicy maggots started climbing out.
Then I discovered Edgar had been bitten on his right rear paw last evening and it was swollen to about twice the size and he was having difficulty putting weight on it. An emergency trip to the vet this morning would be necessary.
I finally get to work and in the middle of the third patient visit of the day my secretary tells me there is an important call from credit card security services. Turns out while I was ploughing through my morning dealing with maggots, serious paw infection and ..... someone in England was going on a little shopping spree with my credit card number. It seems I even payed for their monthly utilities. The bank became suspicious when the charges reached just under 2000 dollars.
I had a difficult day in the office dealing with ........
The only way to put the negative vibes aside was to go for a walk after work, have a simple salad and spend the evening on the sideline cheering for my favorite soccer team, Ireland.
They won, deborah scored and I even had a few little snail friends watching the game with me as the rain fell ever so softly.
