wrapping up

my friends are the cutest. something about sailing away forever makes them love me more. maybe this is why i leave so much. since i announced my plan to leave denver in less than 2 weeks, i've heard from friends almost daily, many of which i haven't seen in years. i'll be going to santa fe, that little city i love, first to see the dear friends i made during massage school, and then heading toward chicago to see my college friends. i miss them so much! tonight the two gemini twins i got into all sorts of trouble with left me a voicemail which made me laugh out loud on the street while i was wrapping up my tattered belongings and lashing them to my scooter.
my friend bruce, the 8-track guy, gave me the most awesome portable 8-track player i've ever seen today. it looks like swiss cheese. he didn't want me to be in my winter home without a way to listen to my collection. i was showing it off today at work, just beaming and dancing around, but no one really cared. i don't think most people see the coolness of 8-tracks.
freyja had a relapse of urinary troubles, and i took her to the vet today. seems she's got two stones in her ureter that are causing infection and pain. i got her tested to the tune of 440 dollars and i await the results to see what i'm supposed to do. i'm uncertain what the right path will be, as i cannot afford an expensive surgery. i'm scared. whatever happens, she's coming with me, and i'll do what is in my power to make her comfortable. i wonder if my lifestyle is too stressful for her?
in one week, i'll be done with my job. i got my life insurance check which allowed me to pay off all my credit cards and have a few thousand dollars in savings. i've arrived at the first goal of freedomvan! this plan actually worked. i'm amazed.

Poor fre-bay, Cleo is on anti-bods too for mild UTinfection which I caught early. Dosed her with herbs over weekend in hopes of avoiding Emergency vet bills, not that the regular vet didnt charge a butt-load on monday, but it helped I think. doc said that beautiful Rubenesque cats such as Cleo benefit from a weekly wiping to discourage infection from traveling from dirty vulva upward (she is also sporting a "brazillan" which may become a permanant southern-cali look). Take heart, Fre has been living this life-style a long time the imbalance probably isnt stress, it may simply be her beautiful figure! I know she'll rebound.

Apparently, Vets are some of the highest paid professionals around. (we were charged 30 dollars for ours to look into a microscope for 5 seconds, thats like, 1200 dollars and hour!) I learned this week that they have to score better on tests and hold higher grades than Med-students inorder to go to school, so if you get sick, see a vet. What a racket!
