I've been insanely busy. One of the cats is sick and I have to give him pills twice per day. Plus he wasn't eating so I also had to syringe-feed him twice per day as well. He's much better now. The pills will probably continue for the rest of his life. He's starting to eat on his own so I'll quit the syringe feeding.

I don't know if I ever mentioned that I did sign up for the doggie training class. After six weeks he basically did not graduate. We're supposed to take him over to the trainer twice a week and they work on him. I don't know if we'll do that. They said I should run/walk him daily to get that energy out. So for a week now I've been walking him daily. We're working on loose leash walking where he doesn't forge ahead of me. So the walks have been like a daily session of tug-of-war. Yesterday he was better towards the end, when he's all overheated and thirsty and less able to fight. With all that I have to do with him and the cat, I've been getting into work ridiculously late. We have rather long days at work so it's dark by the time I get home in the evenings.

I'm still working on the house (removing the bad caulk job on the fascia, prep for paint then paint), but progress is extremely slow. I don't get much done from week to week.

I'm sure I have other things to share. But apparently not when I'm sitting down and ready to blog.
