We ate out at a local place, Doug's. It got to be kind of late, so we did not watch anything.

I woke up a little after midnight, to discover, to my horror, that I had wet the bed. First time that's happened since I was a kid, I certainly hope it's not a sign of things to come. I changed my shirt and shorts and most of the bedding, I didn't want to disturb anyone and just wanted to get back to sleep. Fortunately there were no more disasters for the balance of the night. I waited to get up until Brother-Husband was in the bathroom (where he stays a long time in the mornings), then I went and told Snowbunny what had happened. I don't mind if she tells BH, I just didn't want to be the one to tell him myself.

She did not get upset about it, she is good at taking things in stride. She did some steam cleaning on the mattress, and while she was at it she steam cleaned a few sections of the carpet, one section where the dog had gone #1, then the other section where the cat had barfed. (I told her the cat had barfed, I just didn't tell her why.) She may have me do some regular vacuuming later on. Also we'll probably get a plastic protector for my mattress. Very discouraging in general, but at least the problem is getting managed. I'm just lucky SB was off today (and tomorrow). She wanted to spend today working on our back room with BH, and she is still doing that, but she is also taking time out to help me. I am lucky in that way as well.

Eddie got fixed today, they said we can pick him up anytime after 3:00 p.m. ... I guess he will be wearing the "cone of shame" for a few days. Also I believe they microchipped him today, while he was under the general anesthesia.

Hopefully I won't have nearly so much to report on tomorrow.

That Eddie is a bad influence.

Eddie's been being good today ... so far. Please let that continue ...

He's even being nice to the cats. Not whaling on them like he usually does. And not barking, nor making other earsplitting noises! How awesome. As a reward, I gave him the cardboard tube from my latest roll of paper towels. Trust me, he was delighted. Of course there will be bits of cardboard all over the floor, but I consider it worth it.

Maybe the mellow weather is making him mellow. I opened the windows today, it is 77 out right now. I'm enjoying it while it lasts, the rest of the coming week will be in the 60's and 50's. Lows are in the low 40's and upper 30's. Four days with rain, four days (including today) without rain. This concludes my weather riport.

Yesterday dinner was around 8:00 p.m., and we did not watch anything. The day before, BH and I watched GoT:S4E4. Dinner that day was pizza. While yesterday's dinner was leftover soup. I had confessed to SB that I didn't care for that soup, it was her Korean style soup with beef and tofu. She was not cross with me, instead she heated up a can of chili for me with a potato. Good stuff.

No new nocturnal disasters, thank gods. Hopefully that was just a one-time thing ...

BH and I watched GoT:S4E5 last night. SB made us pasta for dinner. I am certainly ready for dinner tonight!

The fence guys have been at work here today. It looks like the back part of our yard will be an enclosed area.

Eddie's almost been as good as yesterday. He did leave a few nuggets on the rugs.

Yeah I've cut down on the amount of water I drink during the day, hoping that will improve my odds at night. So far so good. No water after 2:00 p.m., is my current approach.

For dinner last night SB made some nice big salads for us. I think she was invited to join some coworkers today for some indoor rock climbing? so she won't get home til later, and I think she said she was going to pick up some kind of takeout for us. I hope it won't be too late, I'm mighty hungry today. (And thirsty, if you know what I mean.)

Dinner last night was reasonably early, but we did not watch anything because BH (and SB) had not slept much the night before. Apparently Eddie made too much ruckus in their room, he "sleeps" in a large cage in their room and he was very ramped up.

We've been having some trouble with Eddie chasing the cats when the cats are trying to get to their automatic feeders when the feeders go off. Our solution is, the feeders have been moved into my bedroom. My bedroom is like the cats' safe zone. There is a baby gate in my doorway, the cats can jump over the gate, Eddie can't. So now they can eat in peace.

The fence guys have been over here again today building our new fences. So far it looks like the main posts are up, and the main crossbars are up. Next will be the individual slats, I presume. Don't mind my wonky terminology.

We haven't been watching anything lately. BH has an odd schedule this week, he is working today. This coming (late) Thursday, his parents will coming out to visit (from Michigan). I am kind of stressing out about that visit, they will be here until (early) Tuesday.

Eddie's been doing remarkably well the last several days. No potty messes, and he has been observed going in his box many times. I'm assuming he's going to regress now and then, but hopefully as he gets older that will happen less and less.

I still get that thing where I forget some little thing that should be easy to remember, and then I beat myself up about it. Today I forgot to tell the cats their feeders were about to go off. Technically that doesn't matter in the least, but I was so depressed about it.

That's all I have to tell you for now.

The fence guys are here again, it looks as if they will probably finish the job today. Dinner yesterday was leftovers, about 45 minutes after dinner BH and I watched GoT:S4E6. BH is off today, as far as I know he is going to do some painting on the back room.

BH's parents are here, they arrived last night. (SB was off and picked them up at the airport.) Today they (along with BH and SB) are going to Gig Harbor, where they will watch a hockey movie, "The Russian Five," a documentary about the Detroit Red Wings. I would have gone with, but we would have had to take two cars (resulting in two bridge tolls).

Eddie's been using his litter box faithfully for about a week now. He's being pretty darn good right now, he's even doing better with the cats, not chasing them so much. He did unroll a bunch of TP from BH's/SB's bathroom a few days ago, so we have been keeping the door to that bathroom closed. Eddie loves to chew on things. He loves to grab things in his mouth and run.

Eddie had his latest obedience class yesterday, I went with Snowbunny and Eddie to do that. Brother-Husband and his folks walked to the nearby Catholic Church for a 5:00 p.m. mass. Eddie's class ran long, so SB told BH we probably wouldn't get back in time to attend the mass. Then SB killed some time on purpose just to make sure we wouldn't get back in time. After they got back from the church service, the five of us (took two cars and) ate out at Mr. Doug's. And then went to Dairy Queen for dessert.

Today, the four of them took Eddie and drove to a park I think. I stayed home and turned on the crock pot. We're eating in today, it will be Polish sausage with veggies and sauerkraut. Tomorrow will basically be the folks' last day here, they fly back to Michigan early Tuesday morning. (SB will drive them to the airport before going to work.)
