coincidences & cats
Rhiannon is at home with a fever. She has also adopted a stray cat. I have to go buy Frontline and make vet arrangements and all the other cat things.
The odd thing is that the cat turned up a couple of days before Tyrone's birthday and followed the kids home from the end of the drive. We had to euthanise Percy (my Manhattan rescue-cat who came through quarantine) in traumatic circumstances about 4 days before Tyrone was born. It's been ten years almost to the day since we had a house cat. I was not looking for this but Rhiannon is madly in love, which means I'll do whatever it takes.
The calculus in particular I was whingeing about last time is in Calculus 2 for Dummies, although there are a lot of topics in Calculus for Dummies that we haven't covered thanks to the mysterious ways of the OU. The author of Calculus for Dummies makes colourful remarks about sticking hot pokers in your eyes and 'even easier than string theory' which helps to soften the humiliation and glassy-eyed expression of the desperately clueless, ie ME.
I need to go running and write but all I want to do is take a nap. Or solve a problem. Please cats & dogs could you help me solve a math problem????
Forgive me if I'm not around/unresponsive? I shouldn't even be taking the time to type this but I had to step away from the integrals for a bit because they're driving me batty.
