Djelibeybi: Morning, all. *stretch*

Just skimmed the thread to catch up but still on first cuppa so it's all sort of jumbled. I'll have to go back later or something when I'm fully conscious.

Nothing exciting to report here so far, which is just how I like it. Moved a few things around my office room to open up more center floor space so I can stretch more often. My back seems happier for it this morning. Other than that, we're getting some smoke from one of the fires - the sky is a lovely shade of yellow-brown and I've been hacking like I have a hairball. Hubs is all sneezy, too. Gotta love Cali.

Yeah, sorry about the medical terms.  I don't even know what all of them mean.  For example: I can never recall what INR stands for, I just know it tells us if we need to change the balance of his medicine and it looks like a diabetic taking their blood sugar.
The Myositis attacks muscles.  The different types attack in different ways.  There's even a newly discovered Myositis that FIL plans to get tested for once it's safe for him to visit doctors on immunomodulation.  It sounds more like how his is progressing.  It was only defined last year or so, therefore there's very few confirmed cases yet


And, yeah.  Charlie is charming.  And Mao and Tabitha love spending time with him.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: Hola! Just checking in before I head out to pick my car up  from the shop and then go out to see if the stores on my work list in the Bay Area  are on fire yet. It's been raining ash on me for the past few days no matter what part of NorCal I'm in, so  at this point I just want to get my work done while also not bursting into flame, thank you very much.

About the car - you know, they gave me a rental while they were working on my car. My car  is a 2019 Hyundai Ioniq and  I bought it brand new last year. It was a HUGE big deal for my whole family of usually poors. I was  spending about the same on gas every month as I would spend on a payment for a "cheap" hybrid vehicle, so I got a hybrid. I wanted it new, so I got a new one. I picked the Hyundai Ioniq because it was widely hailed as the best hybrid in its class and I know from experience that Hyundai makes a damn good, reliable car. I got the  base model - NO UPGRADES, DAMMIT! - because hybrids are hideously expensive anyway and that was all I could (barely) afford.

My rental was a base model 2020 Toyota Corolla. Now, before you go thinking "Oooo, now she wants an even newer car" - well, don't. It was a gasoliine-powered car, so the extra "oomph" while merging was nice, even if that extra "oomph" cost me extra money to power. The rest of the rental - I borderline hated it. I truly cannot  hand this thing back soon enough.

Every single feature and nicety that came standard in my Hyundai either didn't exist in the Corolla or was poorly placed (I'm lookin' at  YOU, USB port inside the center console with the cable-chewing lid) or a PITA to use. It was also a strange combo of analog and digital, like they didn't want to give up the best engineering for the kind of  dirty poor that would buy a base model Corolla. There were literal buttons on the side of the  dash screen. Like WTF??? There seemed to be another USB port outside the console where it would not eat your cable, but it was literally plugged to render it u ...

The furfolk sure do know their posts.  Diamond knows he's Old86's comfort and Nick provides comfort for FIL.  Nick and FIL have a very intense bond.

CSB/
FIL used to work for mosquito control.  One day, his crew got to the location they had to treat, and there was a cat, sitting at the edge of the lot.  They offered him a bit of sandwich, which the cat ate, bread and all.  Well, FIL couldn't stand seeing this cat like this. He encouraged the cat into the truck, only to have him disappear through the open window when the engine started.  FIL came back later with cat food and a cat carrier.  That cat was still waiting. When he saw that FIL had come back, he sauntered into the carrier and came home.  Nick had had enough!!

Well, it took a long time to turn this skinny fellow into the cat he is today, but he is very thankful to be out of that swamp.

Fark user imageView Full Size


When FIL has nightmares or terrors (he gets both.  They're caused by his medicine) Nick will climb up on FIL's chest and hold the blanket tight around him. When he's in pain, Nick's by his side.

It's been a decade since Nick came to us. We've started seeing him show his age.  He's such a big emotional help to FIL, that he couldn't watch his friend suffer from arthritic jumps.  FIL found a cat tower that is also a flight of stairs.

We have one at the foot of his bed and ours.  Nick uses them as stairs and a seat, the girls get full cat tree use out of the stairs in our room

The building guys gave me my very own bottle, between that and the box of meat the folks sent me I am feeling good this week.

My dad loves that stuff, but a farkette recommended this to me and, despite the slight chemical odor, I like how it leaves my skin feeling moisturized instead of leathery.

I started looking at products for re-puppy proofing last night...you know, just in case 😙
And..I might have looked at the shelter website, but only just out of curiosity 😇

Okay - I'm making a list of things to do differently with the next pupper to come into our lives, I admit it! Crate training, teaching them earlier on to use steps and ramps, need a new clicker...oh, and some more electrical cord covers, a playpen....

I'm not plotting, I'm merely preparing. 😙😗😉

That is a great story about Nick! He is a very handsome boy, and I think you are a wonderful person for doing all you do for your elder family members.

Dulce also has a bit of arthritis going on, so I arranged a few boxes and an ottoman in the form of stairs so he can more easily get on/off the bed. He adapted instantly and it doesn't look like stairs...it's just camouflaged with all the other junk in my bedroom :-)

Yeah he freaked out and hauled ass to the office manager and building guy and they told me he pretty much described an alligator loose in the office. Building guy caught it and let it go and laughed at him for it. yeah he is a pain in all our butts.


Hahaha some folk can't handle the concept of a lizard

The building guys gave me my very own bottle, between that and the box of meat the folks sent me I am feeling good this week.

My dad loves that stuff, but a farkette recommended this to me and, despite the slight chemical odor, I like how it leaves my skin feeling moisturized instead of leathery.

I use the Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar.  It keeps my skins from breaking out and it has no scent that I notice


I'll keep an eye out for it! I bought some Dove soap for bathing and it has the worst perfume smell! I normally get the sensitive skin version because it doesn't have much scent to it. Next time, I'll pay more attention to the label when I toss stuff in my shopping cart.

The chemical smell in the liquid Cetaphil is barely noticeable unless you smell your hands while or right after you wash them. I've only been using it since the pandemic started, so I don't know if it bothers other people.

Djelibeybi: Otera:  So your FIL rescued Nick and now Nick looks after him? D'awww... I'm genuinely melting into a puddle over here - no way will I make it a whole year without a furbaby.

I started looking at products for re-puppy proofing last night...you know, just in case 😙
And..I might have looked at the shelter website, but only just out of curiosity 😇

Okay - I'm making a list of things to do differently with the next pupper to come into our lives, I admit it! Crate training, teaching them earlier on to use steps and ramps, need a new clicker...oh, and some more electrical cord covers, a playpen....

I'm not plotting, I'm merely preparing. 😙😗😉

All of my quadrupeds, including Goober Pea, would go mideval on that little guy.  We have hundreds of those little brown boogers running all over our yard.  They are an invasive species that came to TX from Louisiana, killed all of the green lizards here.

Cetaphil does make some good products. Eucerin makes some good lotions, but they tend to be on the greasy side.

Djelibeybi: Timid Goddess: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Hola! Just checking in before I head out to pick my car up  from the shop and then go out to see if the stores on my work list in the Bay Area  are on fire yet. It's been raining ash on me for the past few days no matter what part of NorCal I'm in, so  at this point I just want to get my work done while also not bursting into flame, thank you very much.

About the car - you know, they gave me a rental while they were working on my car. My car  is a 2019 Hyundai Ioniq and  I bought it brand new last year. It was a HUGE big deal for my whole family of usually poors. I was  spending about the same on gas every month as I would spend on a payment for a "cheap" hybrid vehicle, so I got a hybrid. I wanted it new, so I got a new one. I picked the Hyundai Ioniq because it was widely hailed as the best hybrid in its class and I know from experience that Hyundai makes a damn good, reliable car. I got the  base model - NO UPGRADES, DAMMIT! - because hybrids are hideously expensive anyway and that was all I could (barely) afford.

My rental was a base model 2020 Toyota Corolla. Now, before you go thinking "Oooo, now she wants an even newer car" - well, don't. It was a gasoliine-powered car, so the extra "oomph" while merging was nice, even if that extra "oomph" cost me extra money to power. The rest of the rental - I borderline hated it. I truly cannot  hand this thing back soon enough.

Every single feature and nicety that came standard in my Hyundai either didn't exist in the Corolla or was poorly placed (I'm lookin' at  YOU, USB port inside the center console with the cable-chewing lid) or a PITA to use. It was also a strange combo of analog and digital, like they didn't want to give up the best engineering for the kind of  dirty poor that would buy a base model Corolla. There were literal buttons on the side of the  dash screen. Like WTF??? There seemed to be another USB port outside the console where it would not eat your cable, but it was literal ...

Hey, how's the coughing/breathing thing going? Any better?


Everything is on fire, so while I'm not super concerned about my current coughing sitch, I'm def still coughing along with everyone else.

Fairly disconcerting in the midst of respiratory pandemic. Obviously.

Look what I just found Khaleesi facing off against on the patio.  Odd breed of cat that is.......😜🕉

I noticed Mrs. K was acting weird out on the patio, sitting in a weird statue pose about 3 feet away from the little booger, but didn't think much of it.


I call those... nasty, big, pointy teeth kitties.

Thanks, the liquid is in stores here, but the bottle I got at the start of the pandemic still has about 1/4 left. I also use other soaps, like ordinary SoftSoap liquid, so it's one part of the mix. If I feel my hands starting to get dry, I use the Cetaphil for the rest of the day and I find that it works better than lotion, which has to be reapplied every time you wash your hands anyway.

Every morning it's the same routine.  Scream and cry until we get our wet fud.  Tolerate dad wasting time getting coffee, then take away his ability to move and drink said coffee because now it's time to sleep off the wet fud.

So how's the work week played out for you?


I have my books checked in and mostly shelved. I had a full cart and a half of a cart, so I am thinking more than 200 hundred books. I can't shelve the picture books as those shelves are blocked by the technology that is being organized for the kids. And I have been "making work" so thata I am not doing office work. I'll help out on Monday when we will be getting packets together. I'll be the one social distancing! Geez...at least they are masked, but they do not understand 6 feet.

I may have a (partial) solution to the lotion thing: Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Hand Cream. (It has to be the hand cream specifically, and I've only found it in 3oz. tubes, so I tend to stock up when I find it). This stuff is awesome. You rub in into your hands and cuticles really well and let it have a couple of minutes to fully absorb/dry. Then it leaves a very thin film of sorts on your skin to protect it.

It feels a little weird at first and took me about a week to really get used to it, but now I love it. My cuticles have stopped cracking and bleeding - finally! It can last through a hand wash unless you really scrub, but it also comes off easily enough when you want it to and it's not greasy at all once it dries. Maybe give it a try? If you can't find it in drugstores/box stores, they sell it on Amazon. Hope this helps!
