Today is a super busy day for me – so my blog post is a bit of a mixed bag. I’m happy with that though as I have some updates, and I adore motivational Monday – it gets my week off to a great start.
Lets talk about pets: update
In that way life sometimes has of punctuating life’s small and often forgotten events, my views on cats and litter boxes got thrown a curve ball after my post, and the event was definitely one fitting of an exclamation mark. Here’s why:
That’s right. Completely out of the blue – both cats started using their litter box as a bed, to the point where they were hot-bunking. After using the paper based litter that I was sent instead of my wood pellets, me and J noticed neither cat was using the tray. We shut their ‘cat window’ at night time, so the poor mites were holding it till morning (after spending all night walking up and down my previously sleeping body to alert me to their plight). Then on Saturday we were having chats and activities in the dining room where the litter tray is, and noticed their new and unique use for their loo. What a good thing we keep it super clean. I have decided after some really useful chatter with readers to try them again with wood chips. Where we live is semi-rural so I’m pretty sure we will be able to get a fairly large bale delivered quite cheaply. Then the litter tray can revert from toilet back to bed.
Nerve conduction study
Today I am going to my local (ish) hospital for a nerve condition study. It involves having needles put under the skin and electric current being sent through to test nerve function. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an illness whereby the nerves get sent incorrect signals by the brain, so this test is to gauge what sort of stage I am at. I can’t say I’m looking forward to it, but it’s the same hospital where one of our two new baby nephews is staying till he’s ready to come home with his Mummy, so we are going to visit him while we are there.
So I can lick my wounds after my hospital appointment, if I have the energy. I haven’t hit the high street for a while, and I love to hit the shops every now and again. My shopping hauls are without fail total bargains, and the first shop I head for is Poundland. I have a few other bits on my list too if the price is right
So that’s my Monday all planned out. Do you have any plans for today? What gets you motivated on a Monday?
