At a trip to Stuffmart, however, I realized that there were millions of people like me at Stuffmart, buying presents and food last minute, and that's okay.
Christmas Eve was spent at home. William and I dissected an owl pellet, because that's what everyone does on Christmas Eve, isn't it? I think it will have to become a Christmas tradition.
Speaking of traditions, my dh's family has the tradition of oyster stew for Christmas Eve dinner. How this became a tradition, I don't know, but I refuse to participate (sorry, Marilyn) because I don't eat filters. Oysters spend their lifetimes filtering toxins out of ocean water, and then, people eat them?
Dh, not to be put off by my declaration that they look like giant boogers, made and ate his own stew. He declared it delicious and continued the tradition.
We spent a lovely Christmas Day at my sister's and now have a whole week to stay at home!
Today, it is peculiarly warm for Kentucky, in the low 70s in December! The wind is blowing, and so when I opened the windows, well, let's just say that you have too many indoor animals when the wind blows tumbleweeds of dog hair in the house. Got me to thinking, though, think I could use our leaf blower to clean floors?
I am approaching a "blogaversary" of sorts. I have now 985 posts. It is hard to believe that soon, I will have written 1000 blogs.
The Zymox has complete cleared up Paris (the dog's) ear infection. Looks good. However, her immune system is compromised and it moved into her eyes, which are now ulcerated. The vet is recommending having her third eyelid sewn shut on both eyes to give them time to heal as she resists all attempts to put medicine in the eyes despite my efforts. It isn't working. If we don't heal them, they might have to remove the eyes. That's what I need, a blind dog.
