Mom's Bad Day


Our Mom had a bad day, yesterday. It started off with her sleeping too late. This isn't a big deal in that her job is very flexible and she can even work from home (and we love it when she does). This is where it would be helpful for her to let us sleep with her at night. So what if we would wake her up 20 times a night. She would definitely be up by 6 am when we start pawing at her to get our breakfast.

Then while she was at work, she had big problems with a program she has to work on. She can't get it to work right and so she missed her deadline. That means that she will have to work on it this weekend. Part of the reason that she missed her deadline was that she hurt her hand. Mom says she was frustrated with her program; so, she needed a break and went for a walk with her co-worker. While they were walking, Mom fell, landed on her hand, and cut it open. She had to go to the bean vet to have them look at it. She said that the bean vet made her hand not hurt so much and got out lots of road dirt. Then, she got 5 steeches. We're not sure what those are, but it sounds like they put string in her hand to tie up the cut. String is to play with, not hold skin together - what was that bean vet thinking? We did have to do a thorough sniff of her hand as it smelled funny. Here's a picture of her hurt hand.

She spent a few hours at the bean vet which made her late coming home to feed us. It also made her late going to a baseball game with Finnegan & Buddy's Mom. She got there after the game had already started and used her cell phone to call their mom so she could get in. But, she was calling the wrong number; so she never got to talk to their Mom. She decided to come back home and on the way, the car's enjun light came on. We're not sure what that means, but she says she will have to watch it and see if it turns off. If it goes back off, then she won't have to take it to the car fixer.

Mom decided to lay on the sofa and watch some Grey's Anatomy. So, the 3 of us curled up on her and started purring to make her feel better and she really liked that. We hope your beans had a better day than our Mom.

Well, I'd prefer cuddles to a ball game, but the rest sounds pretty un-fun. Mom comes home from werk an complains bout puter trouble, too. She said her puter crashes cuz of something backing up an running over her files. Are werk puters like cars?
V's mom: if they were, the check engine lite would be on all the time! Hope you're feeling better, in all ways, soon. Rotten day!

That is truly a rough day!

I had a rough day, too. First, I could almost see the bottom of my food bowl. Then, Brach took my sleeping spot in the sun. THEN, Mom made me wait a whole 2 minutes when she came home from work before she gave me treats.

Tough times...

We're so sorry for your mom!
Hope that hand feels better soon. We prescribe lots of tv watching, and lots of love from you three kitties. Nothing like love from three kitties to make a Mom feel all better soon.

So sorry your mum had a bad day. Hope her hand gets better soon. My mum's friend Warren has a bad hand too - he fell over running for a bus and he is very embarrassed about it!
