Calico Kitties Playing
I’m continuing to work my way through my backlog of kitty cat photos to edit. I used to have 1000+ and I’m now down to 800 or so! Baby steps.
Speaking of babies, these photos are when Luxie was still a kitten, well maybe a teenager. Her and Coco played constantly.
Is anyone else getting crazy cold temperatures this weekend? This morning I saw a hummingbird at the feeder! I always leave the feeder out until the end of November for any stragglers. This guy was bigger than our usual ruby throated, I think he might have been a rufous.
Whatever he is, he better get a move on!
I hope to get by and visit some of your websites this weekend. It’s been crazy busy lately. For some reason, I have ended up with all my doctor appointments all within a few weeks of each other.
I’ve been to the skin doctor, had my physical, have a bone density next week and a colonoscopy (ugh) the week after that. I’m very grateful that I have access to preventative health care, but it seems like every year the doctor adds some new “you’re getting old” test.
Apparently, I have restless legs syndrome. I thought I just had strange leg cramps. My doctor put me on Ropinirole. I took it for one night and never agin!
I am a very restless sleeper, tossing and turning, my mind staying active. It takes me forever to go to sleep – I adjust the pillow, the covers, lay this way, lay that way, plan my week, think about the grocery list. Anything but sleep.
But with the Ropinirole, my mind stayed active, but my body was just a dead weight. I turned on my side and stayed there. No desire to move, no desire to get comfortable. I understand that it got rid of my restlessness, but it was just too weird for me. The contrast between my active mind and my slack body was just too much. All I could think about was how weird it felt!
I try not to take too many medications and this is one that I can definitely do without!
Sorry for the rambling!
