Today's Veterans Day (aka Armistice Day, Remembrance Day, Poppy day) and fittingly enough I worked on my second V for Victory scarf on the drive to the Allergist and to work.

I'm not in a great mood and Hamish has a strange lump on his foreleg. I'm going to call the vet as soon as I have an idea as to when I can take him in. Right now I'm leaning toward leaving work early tomorrow or coming in late. It's difficult juggling responsibilities and other time commitments.

I've been going to bed early this week. Other than Monday night when I was watching Hoarders, I've had the tv turned off before 10 pm. Very unusual for me. Not sure if this is seasonal depression, I'm fighting off a cold, or my body is telling me it needs time to recuperate from practicing Nia. On the plus side, Tuesday's instructor (Brooke) told me I'm improving. That was good to hear.

Last Friday we went to see Gypsy at the Redford. Did not like. Did not hate as much as the theater production of Miss Saigon I saw a while back, and did not regret the $4 I spent on my ticket or the three or four hours I spent on the excursion, but that's not a movie I ever want to see again.

Saturday was renniekins' Bridal Shower followed by SEMGS.

Sunday was our 24th Wedding Anniversary. I spent the day doing laundry and helping Jebra make chili. Which I thought was the best batch he's ever made and he declared to be completely inedible. Go figure. He's happier now that he's made another batch and had it come out right. I don't know if it was the somewhat old chili powder, the two ancient bottles of beer and the remains of a Charles Shaw white we threw in, or some other factor. He thinks "my" batch tastes like it had ground twigs or leaves as one of the ingredients. I, of course, think it tastes great. Mine also has roughly twice as much chili powder, but his is, also strangely, hotter than mine.

This Saturday I have Nia, followed by (if I'm lucky) a quick trip to the Coffee Beanery for a Ravelry gathering, followed by a drive out to the office to meet my mother and two of her friends. They're going to Las Vegas for a week and we're going to store her car at our work rather than in an expensive Detroit Metro parking lot.

Sorry about the lump on Hamish's leg. Hope he's okay.

Congratulations on your 24th Anniversary, though. That's great.
