I'm moving kinda slow today. It was a rough weekend. Hanna did as I said she would. She brushed the Texas coast and then went into the very tip of Texas as a category-1 hurricane. Minimal damage but still she did make a mess. I think altogether with the rain on and off all day Saturday we got maybe 1/2 and inch of rain at best. We did have one downpour that lasted almost 20 seconds. Very little wind. I think that was the 1/2 inch that we got. Otherwise nothing happened around here.
I did get a jolt of energy on Sunday and I cleaned house like a mad woman. David kept telling me I was going to pay dearly for it so I would quit just to make him happy but then when he went to his man cave outside to putter around I would see something needed to get done and get up to do it. I slept like a baby last night because I was to tired to stay up with my pain. I felt my Lupus kicking my ass when I got up this morning. Shit! I had fever and pain all in my joints and it hurt like hell to walk. I can't catch a break with that thing. So today I'm taking it easy and going to let David cook.

Lucy is happy and healthy. The only thing I worry about is that she has cataracts forming in her left eye. The vet said it was still small but it's definitely starting. It is noticeable enough that she walks into walls and door jams. It makes me want to cry. Spunky was 16 when he went blind with cataracts. It was heart breaking because we couldn't find a vet to do the surgery. So I'm looking around for a good vet that will do the eye surgery for her. So far all the vets that I have called in our area will just let it take it's course and then take her eyes. They don't do cataract surgery. I'm looking into the vets in New Braunfels and San Marcos today to ask around and if they do that kind of surgery and how much it would cost. I'm crossing my fingers that we get lucky.
Well, I'm really getting tired and achy, it's what Lupus does to the body. I'm going to go lay down and read for a bit. Y'all have a safe magical day.
