I was so very excited that Claire gave us a Valentine’s Day/early birthday present on Saturday morning when she slept (and so did we) until 9:00a.m. I was thrilled. Thrilled! I tell you. I haven’t slept in for FIFTEEN MONTHS. Alas, it seems it was because she is, yet again, sick. She has vomited 3-4 times today from what I can tell from Huz’s sporadic emails. Sigh.

I am on day 6 of the low iodine diet and am absolutely sick of it. It is so annoying having to carefully plan out each meal and not being able to eat out at all. I am craving FAT so badly: cream in my coffee, ice cream, a big ol’ pad of butter on a waffle, sausage links, pepperoni pizza, and, most of all, a cheeseburger with mayo and pickles. Drool. This is going to be a VERY long 2 and 1/2 weeks.

I have vowed not to get into watching American Idol this year and, so far, I haven’t watched more than 5 minutes of the try-outs whilst flipping channels. Yay me! I’m so highbrow it hurts.

My cats are constantly fighting. What gives? I thought we got all the bitch slappage out. Apparently I was wrong.
