Sweetie Pie Turner here. My mom is MomGoth’s mom, too, but I call Marian, who is my sister, MomGoth because she helps take care of me.
We had such an exciting week!
Some of it was not very good excitement. A water main broke, so we had a boil water advisory. That meant MomGoth had to boil water to mix Mom’s electrolyte water and to put in Mom’s water delivery bag on her feeding pump. She keeps my water dish nice and full, so that was all right. If I had needed water, then she would have boiled it.
And our refrigerator stopped working! MomGoth didn’t know it, because Mom doesn’t eat food food, just canned formula. The motor was still running, but a friend opened it and found out it wasn’t cold. And it smelled BAD! MomGoth threw everything inside it away and cleaned it out with baking soda. She called Sears and they said they’d schedule a repair appointment in two weeks. MomGoth laughed and laughed, thanked them anyway, and hung up. Then she got the name of a local guy and he came right out and fixed it.
Before he came, MomGoth and Charlie pulled the refrigerator out and cleaned under it and behind it, and look who they found! I used to baptize him in my water dish every day! He’s been under the refrigerator, herding pigs by the smell of him. MomGoth washed him, once the water boil advisory was lifted.
But the most exciting thing was three cousins who came to visit. Cousins of Mom and MomGoth, I mean, not of me. I don’t like company.
I’ll just go hide back there in the bedroom, ‘k?
They forgot to get Charlie to take a picture of them all together, so they took two pictures and MomGoth put them together in the GIMP.
They left, so I came back out.
MomGoth says I’m a Calico Recluse. I’m just shy and retiring. But the cousins sure sounded like they were having fun. Maybe next time they visit, I’ll come out and see them. I know they made Mom and MomGoth really happy.
And MomGoth finding my prodigal polar bear made me happy. So it was a good week, all in all.
