Memorial Day Weekend

I am really looking forward to this long weekend.  Gives me time to recharge from this last week.  The doc put me on some new drugs to help out my legs and my inflamed tendons and boy do they knock for a loop.  Just make me want to curl up and take a nap.  What is funny is that instructions from the doc is to take them at bedtime but reading the instructions about the medication says to take them with food and not to lay down for at least 30 minutes after taking.  I decided that it was best to follow the directions on the meds themselves.

We are going to have a fairly quiet weekend.  Saje have the next couple days off so we get to see each other.  It's funny that when he was home for surgery I was kinda looking forward to him going back to work so that I would have some time alone in the house and now I miss him.  But anyways, it is cold and rainy so with the exception of going out to dinner with some friends, we are planning to just relax and recharge.

This also a melancholy weekend for me.  A year ago, my cat Dami died on Memorial Day and I spent that weekend loving him as I knew he didn't have much time left with me.  He got diabetes and flat refused to eat.  I wasn't going to force him to live by continually force feeding it as he hated it so.  So that weekend I told him goodbye.  He was only 9 but he was done.  He had been a really good cat, always so polite.  In fact if one of the animals had done something wrong we just knew that it was Dami if it wasn't polite.  Not that he was perfect but if it wasn't polite then he wasn't the culpurt.

So what is everyone doing this holiday weekend?

Oh and don't forget the contest!  It's going to be ending on Monday and there are hardly any entries.
