I can't believe I've let a month go by without writing to Dear Diary. However, I'm still unpacking. I think I'll be unpacking for weeks and weeks.
We're trying to keep the grey cat in. It took him a few days to discover Outside, and now he whimpers pathetically about it. He's also been spraying, and someone's been peeing on the kids' beds. There are only two suspects--either the gray cat or the black cat.
Anyway, he's sitting on my lap, being soft and fuzzy.
I'm less depressed today than I have been. I even accomplished a task I've been putting off for over a year. I have to fill out some forms involving my father's estate. One's called an "Affidavit of Domicile and Debts". It asks all kinds of impossible questions: e.g. how long my father lived in California (I don't know when he got here) and when he last voted. I have to sign as either executrix or administratrix. I don't know what the difference is. Ack! I think I'm executrix, even though there's no will.
My daughter's BF is visiting. I've never met a less decisive kid. You ask him a question, and he just shrugs his shoulders and says, "Okay." He's staying in the family room, which is where the computer is, but they're gone a lot.
We're getting a new washer and dryer. The washer is a front loader and should have enough capacity for a peed-on comforter. A new living room couch, too.
I missed my pdoc appointment. I was supposed to be at the Mood Disorders Clinic to see a resident this morning at 11. I confused it with another doctor's appt. that was at 2 PM. I called as soon as I figured this out, but no one has returned my call.
I have mixed feelings about residents in general. I didn't like the one who was my doctor when I was hospitalized. She was stony, ignorant, and all she did for me was prescribe lithium. She never contacted my internist, who could have warned her that I might not do too well on lithium. Apparently people with my blood pressure problem don't deal with lithium very well.
Oh well. Must go now, deal with the real world.
