Getting Older

Master and I went and picked up my birthday ring from the jeweler today. It’s lovely and I can see myself wearing it all the time, which was my hope with the choice I made. It’s a flat ring without a raised gem in the middle which tends to spin around and get caught on things. If you want to see a picture I have a small one on a previous post.

My birthday is Friday, I’ll be old. Not too old but old enough. I’ve planned a pizza and ice cream party. I bought a GF cake from a local bakery to have since I refuse to bake my own cake for my birthday. I’m hoping to have a relaxing day watching my new ring sparkle in the light and just spoiling myself with a spa day. I’ve got nails to polish, brows to pluck and new makeup to play with.

Master just let me buy Pentatonix’s new Christmas album! I’m going to have to listen to it discreetly until December. He has a rule that no Christmas music can be played in his presence until then. I’m excited! I love them.  I’m such a fangirl.

I’ve never done well with getting older and the closer I get to 40 it’s not an easy progression. I have a hesitation of not reaching my goals in life or that something health wise will make my life harder. Sometimes I think about getting old and not having anyone to take care of us. Not that I want children at all.

On to other things, my older cat, Maximus had some dental surgery on Tuesday. I was a worried mommy that’s for sure since he’s never been under anesthesia.  He had 2 teeth removed. The Dr said he had to have been in pain for months with the condition the teeth were. :(

He also had some more tests done and he’s been diagnosed with early stage kidney disease. Poor guy has to have special food, potassium supplements and I have to watch out for him getting worse. He has to be checked every 6 months now to be proactive in his treatment. I might have to do subcutaneous fluids at some point as his disease progresses. I hate that’s the way he’s destined to die. His kidneys will just fail. I can only hope that he has years of life left in him before that happens. He’s my baby and I’ll do whatever I can to keep him happy.

I mean I guess a chronic condition is different than Zeus’ (RIP) acute liver failure. I had mere days. He collapsed and that was it. With Max I can care for him longer and watch for him to tell me he’s ready to go.

It’s hard and I hate ending on a sad note, but I’m gonna go for today.

More later,


Back to Back

From better to worse when I got better from the flu I was okay for a couple days then a cold settled in. I don’t think they were related illnesses, but Master caught my cold so we were both laid up for a few days.

Now, though, we are much better and getting back to our regular routine. I’m hoping that we’ll get to do that play very soon.  Sex has been lacking as well so I know that very soon we’ll be getting sexy again.

It’s just the way some weeks go.

Maximus went to the vet today. I’ve been concerned with some recent excessive grooming and vomiting. Turns out he’s stressed out and we’ll have to do a pheromone diffuser. Also, the vet found 2 broken teeth that will need to be extracted soon and his kidney function isn’t doing well from his blood work. He needs a urine test to be sure of what’s going on – so he’ll be going back to the vet within the week for that part and in the next 2 weeks for oral surgery.

With that and the other immediate expenses we have, we’ll be tightening our belt a bit more. I’ve unsubscribed from a few things, going to really watch the food budget and have no extra money drains. Entertainment will have to be free for the next few months. Of course that means Christmas gifts are going to be…. practically nothing.

Which is really funny because we went to the jeweler the other day and purchased my birthday present on the store credit. I got a lovely new ring coming!

Well I’m off to do some knitting,


I’m Sick

This post will probably be a short one. I’m not feeling very well and have been fighting something the past couple days. It’s left me tired and achy with a head full of crap. I woke up this morning with a headache and lightheadedness so I’m sure I’m not done with feeling sick.

Master and I have playtime planned for this weekend, if I feel up to it. I really hope I feel well enough as I asked for some saran wrap mummification. Of course, if I feel like this on Sunday that won’t be happening. I hate that I want something and something uncontrollable gets in the way. I mean I know that’s life, but we’ve wanted to get back into having more regular play time and the one time I ask for something specific I get sick.
