This is why it takes me so long online. About 30 minutes ago, I noticed that it was getting dark, so I got up to close the shades. I closed the ones in the living room and then as I went into the kitchen, I realized I should have started the rehydration fluid when I started LJ. So I picked two "peach tea" flavor packets from the container. Then I moved to close the kitchen window and while telling Spirit what a good girl she was, and so pretty and brave, I noticed Shiva wasn't on the heating pad with her. He wasn't in the living room, either.

I put the packets in my pocket and went down to the bedroom and found him asleep on the cat blankie at the bottom of the bed and I hugged and kissed him and told him how pretty he was. I noticed I hadn't taken yesterday's clean laundry out of the hamper and thought this would be a good time to do that. I folded and shook out clothes and hung them up or put them in a drawer, and folded the towels and hankies and put those in their places.

I headed back out to the kitchen to make up the rehydration fluid and when I opened the fridge to get the Rubbermaid bottle with the cold water in it (this stuff tastes better if it's really cold), I noticed the iced tea pitcher was empty. So I pulled both the bottle and the pitcher. I made up the rehydration fluid first and then set up the pitcher with it's machine and nice loose Darjeeling to make tea.

I was coming back to the desk when I noticed that Spirit had moved to the very front edge of the recliner (as a chair) and she only does that when she doesn't know what to do. So I picked her up, kissed her, and took her down to the bed. She walked over to Shiva and put her head down so he could wash it, but when I got up to come back out here, she followed me. I sat down to type this and heard her eating dry food in the kitchen, and then watched her walk back to the bedroom to sleep with Shiva.

No wonder it takes me forever!
