Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi, folks!  I wasn't thinking I'd be able to pop in, but give a girl a glass of wine and time to kill at an aiport (plus her laptop) and I'm ready to rumble.  I got to the airport so early and managed to FLY through security.  Seriously, I was the only person in my checkpoint line.  Way to go, Midway.  You really stepped up your game!  The best part is that I managed to get on an earlier flight and will (hopefully) get home two hours earlier than expected.  (My flight is already delayed half an hour.)

I managed to pack and pull my apartment together in remarkable time this morning.  I'm halfway between proud of myself and worried that I've forgotten half the things I need.  We'll see how that goes.

I got some sad news at work today, well not about work, but I was at work.  My vet called to tell me that Buster's kidneys aren't functioning properly and that is most definitely a problem in any cat, but especially one that is only three years old.  It's been a tough day and I actually don't think I can type much more about it because I'm in public and CANNOT stop crying whenever I think about it.  It's not fun to be the girl crying in public... alone.  I'm not really sure what all that means and my vet said that other tests need to be done to figure out what exactly is going on, but it can all wait until I return.  It breaks my heart to think of Buster all by himself (I do have someone checking in on him), but my vet promised me that he's feeling fine and it all can wait.  Shitty news when you're about to head to the airport, for sure.  But I have to remember that there are worse things to hear than your cat is sick.   


I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving!!!  I hope you eat tons of food and drink lots of wine and have the holiday of your dreams.

I have a lot of things to be thankful for, but I am incredibly thankful for all of you!!

Aww poor Buster! I hope there's a way to make it better. Have a good Thanksgiving, Laura!

Oh, Laura- I'm so sorry to hear that.
Awe. Poor little guy. I hope that you enjoy your Thanksgiving at home, and I'll be giving you and Buster good vibes!

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Buster! There's nothing more upsetting than having a sick pet. But the good news is he's feeling fine and can't feel sorry for himself!
