Not Much Accomplished

Very little knitting has been accomplished in the past week. No, I did not finish the Step-Pa-in-Law socks. I don't even have the first one finished! I hope to tonight or at least be close to it. The drab grey, dull rib just doesn't do much for me. We went to the camper for the night on Saturday. I did manage to knit half a dishcloth and finished it at home last night. Logan does too much running for me to do anything other than run along behind him.

I picked up the other meds for Pumba. I think I will get a pill gun to make it easier. He's the type of cat if you don't manage to drive it in the first time he gets all worked up and froths, drools, and pukes it up. They sold me a month's supply (60 pills, one twice a day). I guess then I have to see if it's a permanent thing or not. It's call Cisapride, and a lot of the cats on the Yahoo group I joined take that and the lactulose (Pumba is definitely taking that for the rest of his life, twice a day). I would highly imagine that if this goes well for the month I'll have to keep giving that to him, too. The pill gun is a good idea if I have to get Ma to give them to him when we aren't home. I'd take him to the camper with us if I had to, but I'm afraid the boys would leave to door open (as the usually do), and he'd get out. Our camper is close to the road, and there's a sawmill down the road, so big rigs pass by on a regular basis, and there are also a lot of dogs there, too.

Going to watch the hockey game tonight. I don't go out of my way to watch sports, but since they're tied for the Stanley Cup 3-3 it could be interesting!

Happy knitting!

I know what you mean about the pattern slowing you down :)

Hoorah for whichever team you're rooting for! :)

hi: I am a knitter from North Carolina (home of the Hurricanes I might add) We will be coming up to Nova Scotia the first 2 weeks for our vacation. I wanted my children to see the Bay of Fundy and Cabot's Trail before they leave the nest! Do you know of any "must sees" in your province? I can't wait; I remember seeing it as a child and have never forgotten how amazing and beautiful your area is. Thanks

We wrap our cat's pills in tuna. He gobbles them right down.

Poor Pumba, I sure know how hard it is shovelling medication into a cat! But I hope you'll manage and he'll feel much better soon!
No comment to the last game in the finals, way too depressing, I'm still frustrated over here. Duh.

The pill gun helps. Before I got one, I had to deal with cat slobber, yuck! Poor Pumba!
