Jessie's home : - )

Went and picked Jessie up this afternoon.  Got pulled over for speeding on the way home.  I have somewhat of a lead foot.  Drives Erik crazy, but it is what it is.  Anyhoo...doing 18 mph over the speed limit.  The officer comes to my window, I hand him my license, registration and insurance card and I tell him "you got me".  We discuss the speeding and he looks in and sees Jessie we discuss her a little then he goes back to his squad car.  I had told him it's been about 30 years since I've had a ticket, and he asked me if I wanted one now.  Of course not we both say, but I told him that I'm not going to make up an excuse...I wasn't paying attention, so whatever happens happens.  He comes back to the car and we talk a little more and I told him that in all honesty, the reason I wasn't paying attention was because I hadn't seen my cat in three days and she was meowing non-stop telling me about her time at the kitty hospital and I was responding to her and not paying attention to my speed.  He looked at me and smiled and said... "NOW I'm gonna write you a ticket"...then he laughed and told me to have a good day.  Whew!!! 

So Jessie is home...GOING INSANE!!!  I was able to compromise a little.  I have to keep her in the cage while at work or away from home, and at night while sleeping.  I have the upstairs closed off to her so she can wander around in the three rooms downstairs with us while we're home.  She hasn't sat down for a single second since she got home.  She is wandering from room to room literally meowing NON-STOP. 

I used to work at the College of Medicine and I remember on more than a few occasions having to drop paperwork off in an office on the 5th floor.  I remember walking past a door that had a sign saying "radiation"...I always felt dizzy when I walked past it.  It always felt like the floor was moving.  Really weird.  Never thought too much of it, just thought it was strange.  Years later, I read that some people have a sensitivity to stuff like that.  They can actually feel a difference in a room almost like walking thru an unseen fog.  I thought that was interesting.  Now...maybe it's all in my head, but I had to roll the windows down in the car when bringing Jessie home because I was feeling nauseous.  I have a headache now.  She is supposed to be safe to be around so long as I don't snuggle with her and I wash my hands after petting her.  This has got to be in my head.  I hope so anyway.....  < : -\

I think I'm going to go take a couple shots of jaeger...(I know...any excuse will do).  ; - )

I'm glad she's home baby girl.  I missed her!

All is at peace right now.....


  1. Sounds like you both need a shot or two. I hope all goes well for her and she settles down again.

  2. I'm glad she's home too Ronda and at least she doesn't have to be locked up 24/7 . You are such a good mom and I sure hope all goes well for Jessie.
    I would think that some would be sensitive to being around the radiation. Maybe today was just a bit too nerve wracking for you, that can also give you a headache and make you feel nauseous.
    Sounds like you lucked out with the cop, he must have been an animal lover! Hopefully Jessie will be back to her old self again soon. She'll forget about the whole thing! Love Di ♥

  3. I can't get out of a ticket...ever; As a fellow animal lover I too would probably have been speeding. Maybe I'll start carrying one of those fluffy plush kittens from the toy store in a pet carry box; think that will work?

  4. Welcome Home, Jessie! I hope you'll soon be feeling much better, after all the stress of being away from home and the nasty, but necessary treatment you underwent. Try to get as much sleep as possible!

    So pleased to hear you were 'let off' being given a ticket for speeding, Rhonda! Try not to do it again, now, OK? RELAX! TAKE A DEEP BREATH :)

    Your story about your sensitivity to radiation is very interesting!!! I had not heard of this before.

  5. Thanks for your comments everyone...sorry I didn't get back to u sooner.
    Diana, u might be correct. I think it might have just been nerves.
    DeanO...umm, you could try a fluffy plush kitty from the store, but don't get caught talking to it. You might be in for more than a ticket there. ; - )
    Desiree...I got plenty of's the poor husband that isn't. I watched my speed yesterday. Was very careful...can't take a chance that Thursday was just a fluke. lol! Take care everyone!

  6. oops...sorry Merikay, missed you on that. I'd be afraid to give her some of my jaeger. Outside of the obvious, she might like it and that would leave less for me!! hehehe.. ; - D
