A much too early start to a day when I stayed up too late the night before. I'm off work today, and will be taking CarrieAnne to the vet for her yearly check up. When I greeted Cissy this morning, she gave me her usual "rooo-rooo-rooooo" and rolled over onto her back. When she did that I noticed that her skin was red. Cissy's skin sometimes gets irritated from the folds of her stomach that traps moisture, and after a day or two of patting cornstarch on it to keep it dry, it's just fine. So, I grabbed the cornstarch and as I was putting it on her stomach, I noticed the slightly different texture that had turned slightly sticky and pasty from the moisture. And so I added a little more and that's when I saw it ....... The box I had in my hand wasn't cornstarch, but powdered sugar -- In my early morning haze, I had grabbed the wrong box from the cabinet. Of course I cleaned everything up with help from Cissy and a few onlookers who I think may have been laughing at me behind my back.
~Annie, in March~
I can only hope that the vet seeing CarrieAnne this morning is a little more awake. Enjoy your Wednesday!
