This has been a raccoon kind of week, what with car work and then a trip to the doctor.

Critter has this strange bruising beneath the corners of his mouth and across his chin. Sort of where you'd expected the juice stains in a Mentat. I asked him to stop by the school nurse, and she recommended taking him to the doctor. They had a 4:00 appointment, which was great since it meant he didn't have to miss any school. But it meant a rushed evening, afterwards.

The doctor said it was Impetigo. The skin is kind of rough and more rashy than bruisey today, so I can kind of see that. But he said that the Keflex should take care of it.

Once we got home, we started to work. I didn't like the condition of the house, and managed to get some rather significant work done during date night. Knight was kind enough to follow me around while I worked, and told me stories about work. I hope he gets a chance to write up the latest insanity there, cause it's a real doozy.

I was late, leaving the house to go pick up Canuckgirl. Flar called while I was on the way, which was great. Except my phone started beeping, and I didn't know exactly where the car charger was, and I didn't know if Canuckgirl would be the next to try to call me...

So, what is the good of dropping to yellow alert status, if it doesn't mean I can park my van in the parking garage? Hmph. At least it wasn't raining anymore, so I didn't have to walk through the rain to get into the terminal. I was rushing when I arrived, but it turns out that people were just then arriving in baggage claim from her flight. So I was there when she came down the escalator, and I waved rather madly to get her attention.

After all, I see her face rather often throughout the day, on live journal. She sees my plush raccoon, Renata. I think I've shown her one picture, and there's the one on my web page, but neither are very current. So I thinking I was worrying she wouldn't see me right away.

No, I'm not anxious about having a first-time house-guest come to visit. :)

And now, for sleep. Tomorrow should be a fun day. :)

Hope you're over your house-guest anxiety, and well on your way to having fun! :)

Thanks. I was pleased that it was so easy to get her laptop working on our wireless network. :)
