The past week kicked my butt! Hope yours was better...

The cats had a medical issue

Well, over $1800 later, they're on the mend - though just as the younger ones were recovering, Mama got sick and needed the meds, too. The only thing all 5 of them had in common Friday to Friday was the crunchie treats, so that jar is toast.

Worst part, though? The vet lied to us about Milo and Lowen having fleas just to upsell us on a $63.99 flea med!

So we're still looking for an honest, affordable veterinarian in Orange County, CA. If you have a rec, please pass it on.

And Wednesday, my computer died - AGAIN!

Windows 10 didn't last 3 months and I do none of the sketchy things that break shit. I only got this thing May 17th.

Five days down this time.

Tech Guy didn't get me back online until Sunday afternoon!

For those counting, it was 11 days with no computer in November, 3 days in May, and now 5. Wanna place a bet on how long this one lasts? I'm SO behind on plans this year it's not funny.

Other news this month:
