So to do just that. Albuquerque had 1000 recorded lightening strikes on Thursday night and where we live in the city, we recieved a little over 1.5" of rain. Flash flood warnings again and we were up all night with the hail and commotion. Last night there were only 600 recorded strikes of lightening (when I heard that, I'm thinking....that's about 599 more than I wanted). We had recorded winds of 89 mph and tons of rain and there was a power outage for a section of the city in the south valley and the airport (where Mr. works).
And yes, we did need the moisture.
On another note, the Cuckoos took Ms. Cybella who is Ms. GK's beloved cat, to the vet yesterday afternoon. She isn't doing very well. We knew something was very wrong when she quit being her usual pain in the ass self, racing about and causing the other animals grief. At first we contributed that to the calm collar we had put on her to help her from picking on Shelley's cat but then she developed a foul mouth odor and off to the vet we went. There are lots of vet clinics close to our house but we have found a super vet in the valley who we treasure, so we drove the 14 miles to take Cybella to be evaluated. They did all manner of poking and prodding, which she hardly even reacted to. I knew then that she was very bad. We brought her home with some sub Q liquids for her dehydration and waited for a call on the blood work.
|this is our beauty who is a beast|
We, the whole clan of Cuckoos, are very concerned about Ms. Cybella and if you have an extra bit of good hope thoughts, we will gladly take them. Ms. Cybella is Ms. GK's first "baby" and this is very hard on her. We are trying to keep her busy today and tomorrow working on her room. Sure hope it keeps her mind off the worry as much as possible.
Lots of positive thinking and good energies.....that's all we are focusing on at the moment.
Hope your weekend is sunny, happy and bright.
As Ms. Baggs says at all of our staff meetings.....Keep Smiling, it makes everyone wonder what you've been up to.
