The new kitties have settled in completely. They're frequently seen curled up together in a massive ball of fur. The only bad thing so far was that Boot caught the upper respiratory infection from his step-sister and he got it bad. On Sunday his eyes were almost swollen shut and yellow goop was dripping from them. After a quick trip to the vet the next day where he was given some antibiotics, he has almost fully recovered. I base that on his running around the house like a holy terror attacking his sister, brother, Mesa, my shoes, etc.
Work will be less fun from now on. My time in the field came to an end on Wed. *cries* I can only hope that I get the contract next year and can continue.
Since today is a holiday for us lazy gov't workers, I also decided to take yesterday off to give myself a 4-day weekend. Nice! Unfortunately yesterday was taken up by doing chores all around the house. I had a bit of a scare on Wed when I came home to find water in the garage. Oh shit. Was the roof leaking? Did a pipe break? There was a drip of water coming from behind a wall. I climbed up into the crawl space above the garage and looked for a leak. Dry. *phew* No new roof. There were also no water pipes up there, so that was out. What could it be? There was a water supply line for the old swamp cooler. The stucco all around it was damp. Shit. I'm gonna have to tear out some wallboard. I wonder what's directly on the other side? I measured it out and it turned out to be the bathroom in the guest room. There was a nice puddle behind the toilet. A quick check and I was very happy. All it was was the supply line to the toilet had developed a leak. That was a quick, easy, and inexpensive fix! It looks like I had caught it before too much damage was done.
Today it's off for some fursuiting for fun and profit. Perhaps this is the taste of things to come! *crosses claws*
