November Diary Entries
At the beginning of November, my younger cat Gracie got spade and has had a cone on ever since. When she got home, she was out of it because of the drugs she was given in order to have the surgery done. It was kind of funny seeing her waddle around like she was drunk. We had to put her in an enclosure that we used to use for my dog so she could not hurt herself and so our other pets would not bother her. The next night we had to put a cone on her so she could not lick her stitches, she is funny with a cone on because it looks like she lost some of her coordination with it on because it bunches up her whiskers. Sometimes she just stands in one place and shimmies I am not sure why she does it, but it is funny to see. There are times when I feel bad for her because there are moments where she looks depressed and is just staring at the floor or the couch. Gracie still tries to scratch herself, but she cannot because of her cone so when she tries all you hear is a tapping sound of her hitting her cone. She will get her cone off next week and then she will be all happy once again.
I have had many doctor’s appointments this month. I go to my usual allergy doctor to get my two allergy shots every Friday but this month I also went to the dentist. I usually hate going to the dentist because I have a very bad gag reflex so if anything goes too deep it becomes very unpleasant for me, especially when they do x-rays. This time at the dentist I was getting a cavity filled in which I have not had done in a while, so I did not really remember how it went. What I did not remember was how big the syringe and needle are for when they give you a shot in your cheek to numb you. It took a while for the medicine to work so while I was waiting, I asked the dentist if he could show me how I could get my back teeth when I floss because it is always hard for me to get back there. So, he showed me and now I can kind of get back there when I floss. Anyway, after that conversation my mouth was numb, and I could not feel the right side of my face so then the procedure began. It is really crazy to me that you really cannot feel anything that they are doing to you. After fifteen minutes or so it was all over and was not bad at all. Then I went home and could not feel the right side of my face for about two hours.
This week my family and I went to a drive-in movie at a BBQ restaurant near our house. The night that we went they were showing Elf, which is one of my favorite Christmas movies, so I was excited to go. The food there was very good, and I got a chicken tender melt which I liked a lot, and the waffle fries it came with were top-notch as well. One funny thing that happened was when my mom was trying to get the food from the waiter it fell before it went through the car window, so we had to wait a while before they gave us another one but then it came with extra fries and all was forgiven. In order to hear the movie, we had to tune in to a certain station on the radio which was cool because I thought it was just going to be speakers outside. When the movie started, I could not really see it because I was all the way in the back seat but I did not really mind because I have seen it a bunch of times so it did not really matter if I could see it or not. At the end of the movie, we got popcorn and I got a cookie monster milkshake which is basically just a chocolate milkshake with a bunch of chocolate chips in it and was very good. The popcorn by far was the worst thing about the night because it was cold and came when the movie had ended. Overall, besides the popcorn and food falling on the floor we all had a very good time.
So, this Thanksgiving was weird. We usually go to my cousin’s house in Jersey and eat in their backyard but this year we just stayed home. It was not too bad we watched the parade, the dog show, and football like on any regular Thanksgiving Day. My mom made all the food and we all helped her with something of course. The food was great, and I was full after two plates, I could have kept going but I wanted to save some room for dessert. Dessert was very good too we had Pillsbury chocolate chip cookies and three different pies. I am not really a pie person, but I love cookies and that is all the dessert I need. After dessert, my sister, mom, and I were dancing around the house singing Christmas songs my brother sang one Disney’s Frozen song with us and then went into his room because he is no fun and my dad usually never sings with us either, but we still had a great time. During all the songs I picked up my dog and started to dance with her for a little bit until she had enough, and I put her down and she ran off to the couch. Overall, it was a weird Thanksgiving, but it was still an enjoyable one
