On Tuesday, my roommate and I took a cat to the vet who was not eating and had to leave her there for a few hours while I took my roommate to the doctor. Surprisingly, both my roommate and the cat each had x-rays and bloodwork done. No word yet on my roommate but the cat was filled with gas from breathing through her mouth due to an upper respiratory.
I laid down for a while before going to work and my roommate called me to get up. My dad has been in a nursing home since the end of January but had been doing okay. I call my mom every night to see how he is doing and Tuesday night I find out he died between 7pm and 7:30pm Central Time. I ended up going over to keep her company and my roommate came along. She finally sends me home and tells me that she is fine. I worry a good chunk of the night about her. I called this morning and she is doing fine. She got all the places she needed to call except the Marine Corp who seem to have a problem. My brother, who is in the Army is on his way here so he should take care of the military end tomorrow.
I decided to go to the walk-in clinic for my cold this morning and my roommate had some shopping to do so we got in the car and off we went. On the way to the clinic, the car couldn't shift gears. We pulled into a side street and stopped the car. I checked to be sure that I hadn't accidently bumped the gear shift and found everything the way it should be. Got it back on the road and it happened again. I immediately took it over to the dealer and they now have the car. I have a rental because the car seems to have lost the next gear up. They think a belt inside the transmission went but they have to take the transmission apart to find it. Thought I was going to be without a car for the rest of the week but the rental is nice. Just have to pay for insurance and gas.
Finally did get to the walk-in clinic and they said that I just need to keep pushing fluids. So Monday was bad with coming down with a cold and not having a new episode of Chuck to watch. Tuesday was bad because my dad died and I slept through the new episode of NCIS. Today was bad because of the car. I hope the rest of the week gets better.
Thanks to Mirnell for both Traders and Due South Season 4 (I needed it as well).
Got free food at work today and a free tote bag for being a new hire at the Library. Saturday work went well even though one of the student workers was sick. Went to Sam's club and got seasons 6 and 7 of Star Trek Voyager. Great price so hopefully will be getting 1 through 5 soon. Got a chapter of my Ezra ATF TM7 story done. Hope to have more done soon.
Just wanted to say Hi and maybe meet some new friends. I am a fan of Torchwood and Stargate Atlantis as well as many other programs. I am looking forward to meeting others with similar likes.
