Due to circumstances...

I went to bed rather late last night and then had to sleep on the sofa because one of the animals had peed on the duvet. Itwas rather disgusting and I don't know who the culprit is. I have yet to smell the stain. I wasn't in the mood for that in the middle of the night, so I don't know if it's cat pee or dog pee. I hope the duvet fits in the washing machine, otherwise I'm dead meat.

Sleeping on the sofa wasn't bad. I fell asleep with the TV on, watching repeats of the news, but I don't exactly remember now what I watched. I think the political parties are going to give their vision about what should happen in the Netherlands for the next 4 years. How they are going to save all of us tax money. Some people just don't get it. It's scary when you hear some of them express their theories. I don't want to live in a society that is led by one of them and hope it never happens.

I was up for a little while earlier this morning and even had the computer on, but then I decided that I wasn't awake enough to really make sense, and that pill was making me sad, so I went back to sleep on the sofa and didn't wake up until 12:30 pm and now I feel very good. When I say very good, I mean normal, the way people feel regularly. To me that is very good. That shows you how quickly I am happy. I don't ask for much, do I? I didn't think so. Just the absence of sadness and anxiety.

It's raining today. Just a long slow drizzle. It's not cold outside, but I can't tell you the temperature since I changed browsers. I added on a weather forecaster, but I don't see it anywhere, although it claims I have it. It's a mystery to me. I look at that toolbar and wonder where in the world it is. I downloaded the Google toolbar to see if it will give me better possibilities. It gives me a spelling control and a translator, so now I have to go and see what else it has to offer. It has a weather forecaster for American zipcodes, but that's not going to do me much good. There has to be another one.

I just took Tyke for a walk in the drizzle. He pretended he had to go very badly, so I went along with the program. It wasn't bad outside. The drizzle didn't amount to much and it was only bad if you got in a windy place, which happened a few times. You have to mentally prepare yourself for those spots if you see other people's umbrellas catch the wind and blow sideways. There are a few drafty places between these rows of houses where the wind blows around the corners and across the fields. I imagine it is that way in Chicago, only in Chicago it is much worse, but that is what I always have to think of.

I've completely run out of imagination and things to write about so I will have to stop. No, can't think of a thing. I double checked. Besides, my mood is starting to fall apart a bit, so any minute now, I will be no fun at all.

I hope you're all having a nice day.

Have been reading back and see that you are going off Welbutrin. Has that happened today? And how is the change in the medication amounts affecting you.

I'm wondering why a pill is making you sad and which one. I know that happens - they tend to make us melancholy bringing down our ups...blah blah blah.

Let me know how things are going- okay?

Ah yes, Chicago the windy city.

Our downtown is famous for its windtunnel too.. not many walk outside there, they installed underground shopping so as to keep out of the horrible wind and cold.

Hi Nora. A slightly risque photo!

It's so awful when they pee in the house - and on the bed is just adding insult to injury. It could be an ownership thing - one of them trying to get the upper hand on the others by "owning" the place where you sleep. Territorial.

Downstairs are away and I'm feeding their cat and he is peeing all over the place due to separation anxiety. He does it every time they go away. He is a sweet little thing though.

I can get a single duvet in the washing machine but not a double. Hope you were able to sort it out.
