Elisabeth-Jane took a bunch of steps on her own today! She took a couple the other day and I assumed it was a fluke, but it seems that once this girl starts something she goes at it like gangbusters (and does that phrase date me or what?)(kind of like her getting teeth, of which she is working on her 8th currently...). Today she took four steps in my office to get to her older brother who had a bag of skittles in his hands, yummy! Then she just kept going the rest of the day. She prefers the faster method of crawling, but I'm pretty sure she will be walking a lot more really soon.
On a domestic note, I clipped 15 kitty nails/claws tonight (5 on each kitten), and they feel much better for it. My legs and hands thank the many websites I perused to make sure I knew what I was doing before attempting this scary feat. The kitties did very well, too; they were all very patient with me, and I lavished them each with love afterwards. I am proud to note also that -despite a lot of squirming on their parts- I did not make any kitties bleed! We are also trying a new kitty litter (mixed w/ the old 'til they get used to it) called Swheat Scoop. It sounds wonderful: flushable, biodegradable, and it doesn't have a weird, chemical air freshener smell. We'll see how that goes.
The third thing that happened today was I bought some fish oil tablets in order to hopefully treat my body better and combat the bouts of depression &/or mood swings you faithful readers may have noticed already. I had intended to try St. John's Wort, but felt better about trying the fish oil first. I will let you know how it works for me.
And typing with one hand is very tiring, so I will pretend I have written down all I want to and try to get to bed.
Love & hugs to you all, and I wish you a peaceful and happy Sabbath.
