Incident with the cats this morning

I got up to go to the bathroom 45 minutes before my alarm went off this morning, and when I came back to bed, Oreo slipped in the room with me. And he went for Sybil. I put down my arm to push him back towards the door. Bad idea. He grabbed me and did a real number on my arm. It bled badly. I washed it off, pressed on the various punctures with toilet paper til I thought they had stopped bleeding, and went back to bed. Didn't get back to sleep.

The alarm went off and I pushed the snooze button too many times. Finally got up and got ready for my dentist's appointment. Made it only five minutes late, which was OK. He took me almost immediately and was done remarkably fast. It was just a polishing, so no big deal.

Meanwhile it had been snowing, though by the time I got out of the dentist it was pretty much stopped. Nasty, slushy snow. I wore my rubber boots and was glad of them.

Actually made it in to work by the time I was scheduled, so I didn't have to take any sick time for the dentist appointment. Our new children's person started today, she seems nice.

Work was quiet except for the return of scary camo-wearing man. I may have mentioned him before, or not. He's quite, quite mentally disturbed, is homeless, and although he's never done anything, says things that are, well, scary. Violent and inappropriate. He also tried getting people to give him money or use their credit cards for a bus or train ticket. Not a good situation.

I finished reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which was interesting, and had some good things to say.

After work I called the FWiB, and as usual when I got home we switched to Skype. Didn't talk as long as usual because he was having some gastro-intestinal problems he wanted to talk to the nurses about.

Anyway, that's pretty much the day... except I found out halfway through the day that the punctures on my arm had bled again, getting all over the arm of my brand new birthday present shirt. Grrrrr.

Gratitude List:

1. The FWiB.

2. Oldest Brother is working tonight for the new company that hired him.

3. I don't have to deal with scary camo-wearing man.

4. Good books.

5. Dental work done.

6. Bed soon.
