Hugs for all three of you. I'm glad Shreddy had the chance to go outside and wander.

I'm so sorry, taxlady. I know how difficult this is. {{{{{hugs}}}}}

I'm so sorry, Taxlady. I came in late, I'm guessing Shreddy is your cat. You both are in my prayers and my thoughts.

Bless you both. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this. ((((HUG))))

Thanks again everyone. The vet clinic I used to take him to now has two of its vets who do home euthanasia. I left my name and number and should have a call tomorrow. I'm so glad I asked about home euthanasia. It wasn't easily available in 2007 when I Sucha died.

CCL, yes Shrederik is my 18.5 y.o. tomcat. I have had him since he was 10 weeks old. He's a very sweet boy, handsome too. He has tumours that are probably cancerous. He was diagnosed 22 April and the vet said a few weeks, so I knew it was coming. I'm going to miss my sweet Shreddy so much.

This will be a very hard day for you, taxy I know. My heart goes out to you but after the grief will come the knowledge that you did the right thing. I've had to have many animals euthanized and a few done at home. The vets I had were very kind and understanding.

I'm also making a list of things that I either forgot or couldn't find. It's okay though, because a couple of my prescriptions got messed up and I'll have to go to the store again soon, once I get them straightened out.
I love making that big once a month shopping trip to the grocery store. It gives you such a sense of satisfaction. My home is filled with nourishing food and if I have someone drop by, I can give them food for thought as well as just homemade food. There are some foods I repeat every month. Small can of baked beans, eggs, half and half, etc. Those items never get removed from the list. Then I check the weekly flyer for the store. I am looking for sale items. Hence the clam chowder for supper last night. Little Neck clams were on sale. I also pick up items for a recipe I want to try but don't have the items in the house. Providing they aren't too expensive.

Me too, Addie. I like having the variety to choose from.

Two of my prescriptions were messed up yesterday, but available today. It was a good thing because I had about 9 items I still needed to get.

I go through my register tapes to make a note of what goodies I bought and make sure I have the necessary ingredients to make the dishes I come up with.

I am eating the zucchini spaghetti I just made with my Vegetti. I thought I'd try it since several people online told me they had one and liked it. It's easy to shred the zucchini into strands, like spaghetti. I sauteed it in a little olive oil and butter then sprinkled it with salt, pepper and some parmesan cheese. Pretty good! I'm going to try it with meat sauce next time I made spaghetti for DH.

That sounds good, Carol. I've never heard of a Vegetti, I'll have to look that up.

----------------------

I've been in crazy cleaning mode all day today, and am finally settling in to relax. I sure do love those Swiffers with the adjustable handles that can reach all the way from baseboards to ceiling fans. Really accomplished a lot today and hope I've tired myself out enough to sleep really well tonight.
