You may be saying, "Bring it on! I've been forced to wait out too many situations! I am ready to get going!" Now, that's the attitude to have!
Murphy's Prednisone and Pepcid cocktail put his tummy in order again, and I spent an arm and a leg on the "good" chicken yesterday, so we shall see if that keeps things quiet.
Now, if I can just get a decent night's sleep. I was on track for one last night - cooler weather, good sleeping weather, open windows, ahhhh...and at 3:30 AM, the smoke alarm BRAAPPED. One LOUD HONK. Again at 4. Again at 4:30. No, it's not the battery - this house is "special" because once upon a time it was the builder's model, and the smoke detectors are hard-wired, not battery operated. I know, go figure. Every now and then, every few years, I think a little dust gets into the works and causes it to BRAAAAP! loudly - and always in the middle of the night. I dragged a chair over, climbed up (remember, this is at 4:30 AM and before coffee) and squirted some canned air into it, and it BRAAAPED! right in my face, like it was sneezing, and has been quiet ever since. I think I fixed it. But between the dog's tummy and the smoke detector and my normal insomnia issues, I haven't had a decent night's sleep in a week.
Anyway, yay for October, and a horoscope that isn't scary.
