Saturday morning musings

"It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day in the neighbor--would you be mine....." For some reason this tune is going over and over in my head this morning. Pretty obnoxious, truth be told.

So, it's a Saturday morning. I got up early (well, the regular time) because I got all screwed up with my sleeping over the holidays and have been having the hardest time getting up and getting motivated for the workdays. And I read that if you want to prevent this, you should keep your sleeping/waking schedule consistent on weekends and other days off. Ergo....I'm up-n-at-em at 7:00 on a Saturday morning, yay.

Have to share a funny. Our cat, Boots, got sick (okay, that part's not funny, but wait for it). He peed on the floor two times, which he never does, so I knew something was wrong. Took him to the Vet and she said he has an infection. She gave him a shot and gave us antibiotics to give him for the next 10 days. Have you ever given a cat a pill? (But I digress)

Anyway, I've got him on the bed in a chokehold basically, giving him this pill. I'm cooing to him and stroking his neck and trying to make sure he swallowed it and that he's not going to escape and spit it out under the bed. Steve goes to his computer and the next thing I know, I hear Julie Andrews singing "a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down."

I cracked up! My husband has this knack for finding the most appropriate (or inappropriate) song for any given occasion, at a split-second's notice. Where in the (www)world does he find all this?

Got a nerve block scheduled for Tuesday, so if you see this and are a praying person, would you pray that this will relieve at least some of my neck pain? It's very wearisome and I would love to be rid of it. Thanks!
