For some reason, the mouse decided to die on us!!!! Mum has gotten so used to using a mouse on the laptop that it is difficult for her to work without it!!!! But she went to Best Buy the other day and bought a new desktop and they had the wireless mice on sale, but none in stock, so she has to wait for it to be ordered and delivered (hopefully on Wednesday).

Mum's so called friends totally flaked out on helping her (after she paid them for it all) and so did their daughter Madison, who was supposed to take me on better walkies!!! Finally mum was able to get a couple of women to come out on Saturday to move the furniture, put all the stuff back in the storage couple and rearrange the boxes!!! Now it is up to mum to get them unpacked -- which will not be an easy task!!! She was unable to get her refill on her pain meds until today, so she was taking Ibuprofin, which really only takes the edge off. As soon as she got the Rx filled, she took a couple so started feeling better. The airbed that she bought until she could get her new mattress, did not hold air so she took it back. She has ended up with a foam "eggcrate" pad and a couple of comforters on the frame of the bed. It is not the most comfortable, but she says it beats sleeping on the floor!!!! Mainly cos she has so much trouble getting up and down!!!

She has emptied out a couple of boxes, but it is going to take a loooooong time.

She has been finding some paperwork that she needed (finally), but has also discovered that for some reason some of her mail gets returned to sender with a notice saying "Insufficient Address"!!!! The weird thing is that the address the sender has is the correct address, and she has been receiving mail here!!!! Mum says that as soon as she has a printer up and working she is gonna put a notice on the bulletin board looking for a "pooper scooper" for me and the cats. She still does not have an aide, and has been told that the aide she will eventually get will not be allowed to scoop the litter box!!!!! Grrrrrrrr

Well, because mum has not been online for a few days, she says I cannot post any more right now so she can finish reading all of the posts that she wants to.

Hope to get back soon with less whining!!!

Actually, the situation is a little bit worse!!!! In order for the cable guy to set up the internet, etc., the storage closet on the patio had to be emptied. The only good thing that came out of this was that mum found her Keurig -- which, for some reason the movers had put in the laundry basket in storage on the patio, and also a box of very important papers. Finally, the cable and internet were set up. But this is a different cable company (Cox instead of Comcast, and we only moved about 1.5 miles, if that!!), so mum has to bet used to the different channels, etc. She is discovering that the package she got does not have some of the channels she wants -- will have to call them tomorrow!!! Also the friends who were sposed to be helping her unpack have not done anything other than emptying the storage closet. I think she will have to get someone else!!!!! To top it all off, she is coming down with a cold!!!!! She bought an air matress because it is gonna take time to get a new one for the hospital bed with the way Medicare works and she got tired of sleeping on the floord!!! Well, the mattress keeps deflating for some reason and she finds herself on the metal bedframe!!! So, guess it is back to the floor till she can get back to Walmart!!

This move has NOT been a pleasant experience!!! At least she now has her Keurig so does not have to go to Starbucks every morning for coffee!!! It was starting to add up because she cannot get just a plain black coffee -- no she has to get a fancy coffee (with extra shots of espresso or it is not strong enuf) so that with a muffin really adds up!!!!! Now, cos of the cold she has to see if she can find her cold meds or she will be out of it for a while!!!!

BTW -- thanks to everyone who has contributed to my GoFundMe. Mum thinks she will have to try to get a loan because she has to pay a lawyer for the case involving me!!!!!

Oh well, this too shall pass!!

Will try to chat again soon

Well, it has certainly been a strange month!!!! First I spent a few weeks with Joy and her 2 dogs (Rain and Gunner) and their dozens of kitties!!! Then mum brought me home -- I showed her how mad I was at her by peeing on the carpet in the apartment!!!! We were in the old apartment for a few days then mum took me and the kitties to a Ramada Inn and also rented a van so that both apartments could be "bombed" for bedbugs and all the furniture moved. Finally, on Saturday morning, we all came over to the new apartment. I again showed mum how upset I was by peeing a couple of times, but have been good otherwise. Mum's friends have been helping her unpack, but it is taking a while!!!!! Mum had to get rid of her mattress and couch cos of the bugs so she is sleeping on the floor with me!!! She says she is not very comfy, but what can she do? We do not have tv or internet service yet so she is at the Club House to use their wi fi until we get ours -- hopefully in a day or two!!!

Gotta go now, hope to be back to normal soon.
