Being able to read TiVo from my chair across the room for the first time is just amazing. Last night I found myself stopping to read all the information every time I changed to another program. The UI on the new one is sufficiently different than the one I've had for years... I could operate it well enough but seeing the extra info is just amazing.

On the downside, there is stuff in this house that is dirty and I did not even know it! Like the chair I sit on all the time - to work, to watch TV, to read, to do everything. It had gotten kind of grimy in spots and I had no idea. So last night I pulled out the furniture shampoo and gave it a good going over. This morning, it looks much better.

I drove for the first time this morning and wow. Everything looks like someone gave the world's windows a good washing. Everything is so clear and clean and readable! Street signs! I can read them from a block away. I had been relying on the phone GPS to figure out what road I was on or crossing. Now I can just look up.

But, the phone is a bitch to see and read. I think part of it is just getting used to seeing things differently. Reading glasses fix the problem entirely, but I'm not wild about having to carry reading glasses with me everywhere.

The computers are also going to take some getting used to. But, I can tell that is a focus issue. And so it will get better over time.

The doctor said (and the internets confirm) that it will be about a week before everything is where it will be for good.

I took Betty to get shaved this morning. She was not at all happy about the carrier. Not at all. But, I suspect that once she got the gist of the day, the carrier would be the least of her gripes. The cute vet tech asked me if I wanted her tail completely done or a pompom. I totally opted for the pompom. But, I was mostly delighted at the question. Last time they did not do her tail at all and I really thought they should have.

Poor thing. He said he'd be done early afternoon.

Time to do some more clean up around here.

After and before... She's kind of strutting around now. I think I've created a kitty diva.

Gee, Mr. Fed Ex, Thanks for leaving my package. It's a shame you didn't take the one sitting 3 inches from where you left mine that said "FED EX PREPAID PICKUP, PLEASE"... Maybe the request wasn't clear enough.

Tail

Last year, when I got Betty shaved, they said she was terrorized and when she got home she went to the back of the closet and stayed there. Today they said she did great and, sure enough, when she got home, she checked the back of the closet and stayed there about 3 minutes. Then she came out and strutted around and hasn't stopped. Travis is fascinated and she's all 'get off me you street trash'.

They must have dusted her with some powder or something cause she smells really good.

She's spent a lot of time in my lap today and now is snoozing away here next to my thigh. So sweet.

Betty

I really thought there was going to be a ton of work this week and I was so wrong. Today there was next to none and tomorrow I expect there will be less. I so miss swimming. I think I can hold out about one more week.

Tomorrow, I think I'll scoot over to University Village to the Storables store and see if I can solve a drawer problem I have. Saturday, my plans are to head south to Penneys and other assorted shopping plus brunch.

Tonight there is bear knitting and baseball...

This shooting happened at 4:30 in the afternoon at an intersection I pass through usually many times a week - it's very near my pool. Arugh.
