The Sky's Gonna Open.

Yesterday we had some nasty storms here in Mid-Michigan, plus two tornado warnings and an actual tornado. The tornado wasn't in my county, but not far from my sister's work - at least closer than you'd like a tornado to be! Lots of damage, but no causalities to my knowledge. I opened the front door to take video of the winds and rain and then I heard this screaming noise. So I shut the door, turned around and there was Hiccup, in the far corner of the room, hunched over, screaming, scared out of his mind cuz I had opened the door and it was storming so bad outside. I picked him up, rocked him and then turned on his video games and he calmed down a bit, but he jumped at every thunder noise for the next hour. Then last night it stormed, nonstop, hard, for four hours straight. Twice I got up to make sure none of the cats were scared but everyone - my sister included - slept straight through it.

So, then at like 1am, I went to take my pills for and I accidentally dropped one on the floor. The lights were off in my room, so I didn't know where it landed or even for sure which pill it was - one of the little ones, I knew that. Both the little ones are serious pills to miss - like my anxiety pill and my auto-immune suppresser, not something I can skip or want a cat to find. So I woke my sister up. We looked all around the bed, under the bed, she got down on her belly with the flashlight. Finally she pulled the bed out. It was disgusting underneath there. Bits of food crumbs and old cat toys and old pills. But not the pill we were looking for. My sister freaked out about the state of the floor under there, so at 1 in the morning, she swept and mopped in my room! Finally we found the damn pill, all the way across the room, in a pile of cat toys!

ION, I am making it this week's goal to catch up on comments. I am like a month behind and so if you get spammed with a bunch of replies from me this week, that's what's up. I am trying not to set huge goals for myself - or even moderate goals - because the fatigue is still kicking my ass, so this is my minor weekly goal for now.

That is all.
