I'm sitting in my kitchen typing this, my third attempt at blogging. I should be in my office room, but more on that in a minute. I decided to try blogging again because I'm starting to get rather active on YouTube and Flickr. Figured it would be cool to centralize my information for both sites. And those of you who know me know how anti-Facebook I am, so this is the next best thing. Of course, these kinds of things are meant to limit actual human interaction, right? That way we don't have to actually talk. You can just come here and read what I'm up to, thinking about, or otherwise busy with. *sigh*
Okay, so why am I in my kitchen typing this rather than my office? Well I was having a pretty good day today. This being Thursday of Spring Break. Did some yard work this morning. Then I needed to clean up after Scamper because he's been having potty issues. There's particularly a place behind my desk that has been his new pee spot. I started to scoot the huge L-shaped desk I have when it suddenly broke at the corner and collapsed. Everything on my shelves fell out and my monitor and computer started sliding out. I caught the monitor. The almost empty cup of coffee went flying. It was very upsetting. Long story short, I moved all my comp stuff into the kitchen, called the furniture company and they are sending replacement parts. In the meantime, my office is a complete disaster. I couldn't bring myself to clean it yet.
The second horrible part of my day was when I went to Petsmart. I had to get a "normal" litter box because the automatic scooper finally gave out. While in line, a magazine caught my eye with an article about how to deal with an aging cat. I started reading it and actually stepped out of line! It was describing CDS, aka Feline Alzheimers. At the risk of sounding like a hypochondriac, Scamper is exhibiting a lot of the symptoms. Meowing a lot at night, not using the litter, overly affectionate (or not at all), appetite changes, excessive sleeping, etc. The meowing and litter things I have definitely noticed. He also seems more underfoot than usual. But the thing is, it could be other things. The meowing just may be him begging at the backdoor again. The litter because that automatic box was getting pretty bad. He's really always been affectionate. I don't know. But the carpet messes and night meowing are getting really frustrating and if it is CDS, it won't get better, which is a really scary thought....
Well, anyway. Check out my latest YouTube posting. It's from Stations of the Cross 2008. It was in the "He is Risen" room. I wanted to use a major theme from Parkway Place and present a challenge to Christ-followers or not. I shot the footage and did the text graphics. Details on the video info. Enjoy!
