I just got home with Athena from the Animal Hospital. Turns out that Athena had one flea, and there is an extremely high likelihood that the carpets in my house here have larvae or eggs of fleas due to the bio-terrorist that lived in the apartment before we moved in. Athena also had tapeworms and some tartar, but the vet gave her a pill for the worms and some treats for me to help get rid of the tartar buildup. A quick dose of Revolution, and next month I am to dose her with Revolution again to make sure that the apartment and she are both clean of fleas.
Turns out that I was not allergic to her WrmClear, but instead I have an allergy to the flea saliva. It's very common, so at least I know why I'm suffering too! The WrmClear by HomeoPet did not cure her of worms at all, more or less it just helped her pass more out faster.
She is so happy to be home now, our visit to the vet was less than an hour long. I have gotten purrs, head bonks, and gave a few scritches and some treats.
In other news, I have been commissioned! I am currently working on making two baby sets that consist of a sweater, hat, and booties for two different people going to a baby shower in May. It's so exciting! I started the hat this morning, and by tonight I should have both hats done. The patterns are very simple, the only challenging thing is going to be the sweaters, honestly.
I have been working on my goal of 100 items, and I currently have 87 out of 100 made. That particular project is on hold for a few days while I make the baby sets.
I'm very tired, I've been logging so many hours at work it's been ridiculous. Today was my only day off, and I've been up since seven, already worked on a baby hat, been to the vet and back, chatted with my brother about his upcoming vet visit, and now I'm about to have lunch. Then, I'm thinking it's nap time. Seriously. I'm bushed. I have one more errand to run this afternoon, as my brother needs to borrow my kitty carrier for his vet visit tomorrow. Then it's relaxation, dinner, and more relaxation before sleep. I work the next five days in a row, and there is a 98% chance I have to work on Sunday too due to it being the end of the month, the time when the social assistance cheques are sent out and everybody comes to the mall in herds.
Lots going on, and I have no idea how I've been able to juggle work, home cleaning, and crafting, among other things. But at least some of it is finally settling down.
