Relaxing
 

It's the last rainy Saturday before Christmas and we stayed far, far away from the mall. In the morning we tidied the house a bit. After lunch we ran a few grocery errands.

Now we're settled in for the evening and watching a little Twin Peaks. We'll probably pull out the wrapping paper and get busy with the presents.

So far vacation is off to a good start.

TGIF
 

Vacation Time! It's been a long week and now we have some well deserved time off. Here is hoping your weekend is splendid. Mine will be. We have some house chores and a basketball game on Sunday but really not too much and that is wonderful. I am then off with the whole family next week...another grand thing.

Enjoy the updates.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Finally
 

One more day and then we're off for Winter break. Probably because I've been looking forward to break so much this week has seemed like it would never end. But I made it. Tomorrow we'll have a holiday party, lunch, afternoon classes and finally a spirit assembly. We also get out a full hour early.

I'm so looking forward to sleeping in on Saturday.

Suffer the Little Children
 

So much sadness in the world this week. It should be a happy time, a time of peace and love. Instead a bunch of murdering scum - please don't dignify them by identifying them by a religion - they aren't religious, they aren't true Muslims - they're just butchers, fanatical thugs, murdering peaceful Muslims. There's a special place in hell reserved for people who hurt kids...

Our thoughts are with the bereaved.

This coming weekend is the winter solstice - so Good Yule to our Pagan and Wiccan readers in the northern hemisphere, Good Litha to those in the southern.

Little Snow continues to improve. She was even slightly playful tonight. She tired quickly but still... it was good to see her more lively. I just wish this high-protein recovery food was quite so smelly - it really does stink... she seems to like it though.

See you next week. Goodnight and may your God/s go with you.

Ferret on the Mend
 

First - Happy Hanukkah to all our Jewish readers.

Took a couple of days off work - little ferretty ferret was very, very poorly Sunday night. She's been struggling with oestrus for a few weeks and on Sunday evening she suddenly, rapidly, deteriorated. Scared the living daylights out of me. My vet doesn't do out-of-hours visits. You can ring for advice or ring for an urgent appointment for the first working day, but that's it.

A good friend pointed me in the direction of a vet who would do out-of-hours (thank you so much, Beth.) And I got an emergency consultation right away. One hormone jab (the previous two didn't work), one vitamin jab, one iron jab (poor little mite - that one hurts), and a considerable sum of money later and the immediate crisis was over. The vet wanted me to come back on Monday morning. So I did.

Another iron jab, and some high-protein liquid feed that I have to give her - little-and-often - for the next couple of days. This visit was free - included in Sunday's fees.

It looks like the hormone jabs have finally worked and oestrus is ending. Thank God for that. Because if they stay in oestrus they die... and I'm kind of fond of the little stinker and don't want to lose her.

Off again today so I could keep feeding her the special food every hour. She's still not quite her usual self, but she's so much better today that it's hard to believe she was that sick on Sunday. She even ate a little proper food this morning in addition to the high-protein liquid. And yes - I will be switching vet. This bloke is so much more knowledgeable about ferrets than my old vet (who's great with dogs and cats but not so good with ferrets).

4 days to go...
 

...then vacation for a full week. That I like. Then I go back to work for just 3 days and then grab another 4 day weekend. All good.

My division is officially done with lay offs (last of them today) for at least 8 months. So now I have to find something positive to keep me going. Good news is in two years we will be looking for a new house and that will come with a new mortgage, so between now and than I need to be working for that.

Our house is ready for the Christmas morning chaos. Than the kids will go to their other houses until the 1st and it will be mighty quiet around here for a few days.

Now onto your updates with the reality that tomorrow Ze will be back with her massive amount I am sure. We all owe her big.

Have a great night/day.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Sunday
 

Soon it will be time to leave for little e's basketball game. This will be their third game and they'll likely be playing with four again. They only have five players on the team. Last weekend they defeated a team with 12 players. Yes, they won playing only four on the court.

Someone on the other team wasn't happy about losing 27 to 8 and they reported the game to the league. Turns out you have to forfeit if you don't have at least five players in the game. Mind you, they had five players suited up for the game but the fifth sat on the bench due to a sprained ankle.

This game will be another forfeit but the girls want to play anyway. I want them to kick butt with four players again.

12-13-14
 

That should be lucky right?

So a busy Saturday in the sunshine. Went to the Sugar Plum Faire at Emory's school and T had her last training session. Cal is off with his dad doing some type of filming thing.

Tomorrow one basketball game to go to in the afternoon. Hopefully we can be full slugs until then. We may have to do some chore stuff like groceries.

Have a good night and enjoy your updates.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Counting down....
 

It's been a long week and it's technically not over for me. Tomorrow I'll attend my final training class. I'm happy that it's been very informative. It's much harder to stay focused and awake when all the instructors do is read the text to you.

All of us just have to make it through next week and then we get a small vacation. I know the kids are likely counting down to Christmas day. I'm counting down to the first day I can sleep in.

Jabs again.
 

Snow's not the only one who's had her jabs this week.

I got my 'flu jab on Monday after work. My arm is a little bruised and a little sore. But at least I won't get the 'flu. Not that there seems to be any around at the moment anyway.

What with that and my HepB booster last week, (if you work in an industry that sometimes requires you to clear waste ground ready for re-use there's always the danger of needle-stick. Precautions against HepB are always sensible), my immune system is working so hard that I'm dog-tired when I get home from work. Right now I'm having so much trouble concentrating that I might not even know my name if asked.

See you next week. Goodnight and may your God/s go with you

More Jabs
 

Snow update - she's had a second - different strength - jill-jab. We're hoping that one works. If not she'll be scheduled for a spaying operation. Not ideal at her age but better than the alternative. Keep your fingers crossed.

Late
 

Running late tonight. I stayed late for work and E had to get little e from basketball practice. We ended up having pizza instead of my planned dinner as a result.

Finally getting around to the update...sorry there's not more. I know Ze will have a lot for you tomorrow.

Another Sunday Night
 

Busy day and evening with plenty of chores to do. I think the upcoming holiday creates a bit more work until it fully arrives. The kids return making the week ahead also very busy.

Tonight there are a few more updates, please enjoy.

Peace, Health and Happiness.
