So... you know how I haven't had my period in like 6 months? Okay, maybe you don't. After taking about 5 pregnancy tests which all came back negative, I decided it had something to do with my HHT, low iron, stress, the economy or the price of tea in China. Really, I mean who knows why after 20-some years of being able to set tthe clock by Aunt Flo, she suddenly decides to take an extended leave of absence. Hormonal rebound from the dread, evil, evil Mirena IUD? Who knows?
Well, guess what?
I'm not pregnant. I woke up at 3am and yep, its back. What was I complaining about? What is wrong with me? Why in the world was I worrying about not having cramps, a sore back and well, you know the rest. Good thing my free sample of Playtex tampons came in the mail the other day or I would have had to go all medevil.
No, the +1 I'm talking about may only be a temporary increase. A black cat followed Dean and Avery home from their "morning jog" yesterday. He is overly friendly and wouldn't go away. What do you do? Call the neighborhood 'cat lady'. That would be Holly. And of course, she knew this cat. Friends from school have been feeding him outdoors but they went away for the long weekend. So, we're keeping him safe in the house until they get back. The mom of that family is allergic and he isn't allowed in their house, so some secret part of me is hoping they'll just say "Keep him" since he seems to have an affinity for curling up next to me in bed.
Dean is calliing him Inky and the girls are calling him Diamond. Have to say, I think Diamond fits better since he is quite long and slender- very regal looking. Inky would fit a small, lithe black cat- like, say, Missy(I initially called her Inky but Dean was so persistent in calling her Missy that it stuck). Diamond has clearly not had alot of indoor training as his desire to sleep in the dishwasher and the nook over the microwave would tell.
Shhh... no one tell the City... we are already being harrassed to apply for an animal fancier's permit due to having 3 dogs.
