My mom has a new 'do! I think it's a bit on the drastic side, both in style and color, but it sort of suits her.

lookin' good mom! )

Then, in the best news this week, MY KITTY CAME BACK!!! Like, she found her way back on her own!

welcome home, Ms Marple! )

I walked out of the living room to my bedroom and laid on the bed, then 2 mins later, Kim is all "Lizet! Come quick! I think Ms Marple is back!"

So I go back to the living room, and sure enough I hear her meow on the other side of the screen door! I turned on the light and opened the door and had to coax her back in, but she wouldn't come, so I picked her up and brought her in.

Kim, of course, is crying and going on like she did last week when I found out Ms Marple got out.

My kitty looks fine, if a little lighter from likely not eating every day for a week. And she doesn't run away from me when I pick her up. I wonder how long that will last.

But SHE'S BACK! I guess she got tired of roaming the neighborhood and decided to come back. Too bad I didn't have a cam on her to see all the places she'd gone to and the people she'd seen during her week adventure.

I have to get her a new collar though - she's lost her's. I hope I can get a replacement chip tag with her chip ID number on it. I know I can get another regular tag with her name and my cell phone number, but I'd also like to get that chip tag too.

Wednesday night my cat got out. I'm not too upset by this. Just concerned about where she's at.

Kim, however, has been crying off and on since we found out on Thursday morning. See I think she got out while Kim was being OCD about how the curtains look from the outside (if people can see into the house) and she will literally spent 10 minutes going back and forth from inside to outside before they're just right. It was during this time that I think the cat got out. Thursday morning Kim told me around 2 am she thought she heard scratching on the door but was too tired to get up and investigate. Could it have been Ms Marple wanting to come back in? I don't know. Though I am a bit upset that she didn't at least look out the window to see what it was.

What I am getting annoyed by is her continuing to give me doe eyes or whatever when she thinks I'm not looking because she's upset about it. Twice she's cried on my shoulder about it, blaming herself and I did the good thing and tried to assure her that it was an accident and I'm not mad at her, but if this continues, I won't be held responsible for telling her that, yes, it is her fault and ask her what she's going to do about it.

Part of me thinks this is "God's" way of eliminating the obstacle keeping me from helping Abel's parents (I mentioned that I helped them the last weekend in March and I decided that doing elder care like that wasn't for me), but there is still the communication barrier and the fact that I can't deal with basically being locked in a house because that's what Abel's dad has to do to keep his wife, who has dementia, from getting out of the house. Also, since I'm working, I don't want to be relied on to care for her outside of the "at night" that Abel said I'd be helping with.

The other part of me thinks that my cat ate one of the pills that I've been finding on the floor and she got out to die or whatever. Kim's brother was losing his eyesight and apparently his pills were small and easily got lost in the dirty carpet. It wouldn't have taken Ms Marple much to find it and eat it and get sick. I shouldn't think morbidly like that, but that thought has always been in my head when I first starting finding the pills. I'm also reminded of Lora's cat Bubba, who was maybe 4 or 5 years older than Ms Marple and a couple of years ago, he got out of the house and hasn't been seen since. Lora thinks he went somewhere to die because he was old. So I was thinking that Ms Marple maybe did the same? I don't know.

I've posted on twitter, IG, tumblr and FB about Ms Marple going missing. People have been sharing. Her tracking info is up to date so if she's found, hopefully someone will take her to a vet or shelter to have her scanned and returned to me.

Spring 2014 registration

Cerritos College = November 25 @ 345pm
Cypress College = December 17 @ 3pm

The first one is on a Monday and I have to make sure I'm home in time or I'll have to stick around campus to do it. The other is a Tuesday during finals week but no matter as Tuesdays are my early days and I'm home by that time anyway.

Now just waiting for the release of the schedule so I can plan...though I think they're out already, but I can't find them. Need to search the respective college websites harder/better. I'd like to be able to plan out my classes now so I know how much to save in case fee waivers don't cover everything for the cost of the classes.

Took the cat to the vet today. I'm always shocked by how relatively inexpensive the shots end up being. I guess because they have shot packages, I get a discount instead of paying for each individually. But Ms Marple is good for the year!

I feel like I'm so behind in everything.

I'm trying to keep my schedule I had while staying with my sister, but being at the mercy of whenever my parents decide to get the uhaul truck to move furniture back really sucks!

Also, it really sucks that 2 days last week I was stuck home until after 12 pm waiting for the heater repair guy. Thursday he came right at 11 am, worked for an hour and said he'd try to return Friday (if he got the parts he needed) or he'd be back Monday. I tell this to my dad and he tells me, "okay stick around Friday and see if he comes." OMFG! I stayed until after 12 waiting, then I was like screw this! I have work to do! so I left.

I go back to volunteering at the courthouse on Wednesday so I don't know when my parents plan on moving the bulk furniture. If anything, they should get one of those vans and get our damn beds so we don't have to sleep on the floor anymore! It's been 11 days since they've returned and we're still sleeping on the floor! I was expecting to be pretty much moved back in by now!

On the plus, my cat got to come on Friday night. That's been nice. I like that she sleeps in my room now. wonder if that will continue once the furniture is moved back in...

There's a bunch of other stuff going on, but I'm getting worked up just thinking about it to type it up.

New H50 tonight and tomorrow night. I'm so excited!

I have tentative boarding arrangements for the cat baby. I asked my friend Lora is she could watch my cat if I'm not able to find affordable boarding. She, and her mother, said they were going to offer, but the mother was worried about my cat getting out. My cat is mostly indoors and I try my hardest not to let her out. The pets they have are free to go in and out as they please. Lora's mom and dad are home bound while everyone is at work and they wouldn't be able to chase my cat back into the house if she got out. I said I'm not too worried about that (I sort of am because they live in a residential area and at night there's a coyote or bobcat that roams the area). Sometime this week, though, I'll be taking my cat over to their place so we can see how she does with the other 2 cat and the dog.

In the meantime, I was told about 2 other place I should check out, so I'm going to do that. Pie in the sky dream is to find someplace local that's $5/day because for 30 days that's $150 and totally manageable.

Did I update about my cat after i took her to the vet on Monday? I don't think I did.

Vet status: Ms Marple is 6 yr 2 months and 7 days old (back on 10-8). She weighs 12.7 lbs and is otherwise healthy (again, back on 10-8).

Down side: $20/day to board her with the vet. For 30 days, that's $580! Looking for someplace else.

I had a few friends on FB suggest places, but it turns out, all of those places are sitter who will come to you and look after the cat for a few hours. Found a place in Long Beach that's $13/day, but still too much that I'd have to pay for 30 days.

I don't understand why it's so much. It's someplace to stay, feed her the food I provide and clean up a liter box.

Next thing is asking Lora. She has 2 cats and a dog and my cat has never been around other animals, so I don't know how she'd do. She also sheds quite a bit and I comb her every other day too! I guess Monday I could have taken her with me when I went to the Pastor's (Lora's parents) house and let her get a feel for the place, but I didn't even think of that because I was still thinking I'd board her at a facility. Hmm
