cat toof cleaning...
ms. peep has to get her teeth cleaned and possibly some dental work, too. she had a cut on her face that is just now healing after the 3rd round of anti-biotics and the vet thinks that she might have a infected tooth to blame. i always worry when the cats have to get anything at all done, and peeps has a heart murmur, so i worry about a 14 year old girl (she doesn't look or act 14 though. even the vet always thinks she is younger) getting put under anaesthesia. we lost our black cat, egon (named after egon shiele the artist) who was the best boy in the world, as well as ms. kahlo's first and only love. he got his teeth cleaned and stopped breathing and then we found out he had some sort of tumor on his heart/lungs. we never really knew what happened but within a month, he went from being fine to being so so sick and in pain that we had to put him to sleep. so. i get worried. anyway, i take her in at 10 a.m. to-morrow. so. keep your fingers crossed for her.
yesterday jakie and i went out and about. i went to joann's whilst he went to the used cd store and the guitar shop. he got me some kate bush that i had and lost, so that was cool. i only picked up more wood plaques for the circle collages and a needle tool for poking holes in cardboard. i attempted to just use whatever i had around, but the holes were messy and blown out. i am hoping to add some crocheted borders to some of the circle collages. i have a mental image, i guess i will have to see if they look anything alike, ya know? we went to barnes and noble where i blew my xmas gift certificate that the cats got me (aren't they sweet?) i mainly got magazines, a jill bliss journal and some of her little multipack journals. i usually use moleskines, but they didn't have the kind i use, so i just got the jill bliss ones because they are so cute. plus, i generally just have little sketches, doodles, ideas, notes, just junk, so i don't really need it to be so nice. i burn through journals FAST. the pages with junk on em, i tend to use for circle collages, etc. we had dinner after that and then came home and hung out and cuddled. chilled. we were up late. it was nice. i dig my husband, i really really do.
i have always had a hard time opening up with most people and being goofy. i am able to be that way with jakie. i actually notice it most when i realize how tense i am with my parents, and even jakie's parents, who i really love. i think that most people would be alarmed if they saw how strangely i act. i do thinks like sing songs in the highest voice possible, replacing the words with my own nonsensical ones, or sometimes with the word "peeps" over and over, which she goes nuts over. she loves it when i sing or speak in a high(er) pitch voice than usual. i actually feel myself being stiff sometimes. i remember as a kid doing it, too. even to the point of hiding how i feel about things. like if i am given a gift, i don't know how to act. i get a bit freaked out. when we got married, totally like a zombie. i actually went to therapy about it because i could feel myself being like that and i didn't know why. there was family stuff going on, too, at that point, but still, i was not in the moment, and i wish i had been. especially because i adore jake, i love him so passionately, he is my home, he is the best thing that has ever happened to me and i don't even know how it happened. i digress.
