His appetite is better today, fed him canned food and he ate half of what I put down as he used to scarf that up any chance he got but he did come back after a while and ate some more and little while after that even got into Chamouti's kibble so he has eaten plenty for this morning, no upchucking either. He really is like his former self, at least for today. Snoozing in his new favorite place on a chair with two pillows on it (the inserts for some shams which are in the laundry) which faces the small backyard, don't know what he was looking at for at least an hour before he went to sleep.

I'm pretty excited about my Costco haul today. Bought skinless and boneless chicken thighs @ $2.79/ pound! They don't always have this. This means I can just use alnutrin with eggshell for my next raw chicken batch! Ah, so much easier than my bone recipe.

They don't? They always have them at the Costco I go to. They're great. I get them for myself and the cats :D. Thighs have more flavor than breasts.
No the stores in my immediate area are a bit lacking sometimes. I'm definitely going to keep a lookout for these and buy them when I can! I did a recalculation and it would only cost $11 more per month to feed all 3 of our cats the boneless version in addition to the usual turkey and rabbit.

Sounds like he had a good day, sweet boy. Cats are fighters, I think he'll be around longer than you think.💝

Had my first lab really helping as a Teaching Assistant. Was a little intimidated because I meant to review the information earlier than the day of, so I could really sound like I knew my stuff, haha. It was learning bones of mammals, including the skull bones. I did well, and used my cheat sheet from when I took the class. Excited to plan 2 review sessions if people would like to participate! I really enjoy teaching and helping people.

I also will be organizing test study dates. Thinking about organizing it into a game, like jeopardy. Anybody have any other fun review games they'd recommend?

Also, finally completed the 2 cover letters for grad school I've been working on. Yea!! Then it is time to start full time and seasonal jobs, and continue looking for grad school opportunities. I'm started to get a bit excited about this. Not that I wasn't before, but it was more feeling overwhelmed and unsure, which prevented me from moving forward. So yea, finally over the hump! Just need to keep it moving.

What's on my mind is that I'm seriously considering getting a tattoo of Felix and Fayola. I found a tattoo artist with a beautiful whimsical and upbeat art style that I think Felix and Fayola would look amazing in.

Just found out tonight that a coworker of mine has gone missing and has an Amber alert out for her. I hope she wasn't trafficked or taken by someone. I feel like she probably just took off without telling anyone as she had mentioned wanting to get away and go on vacation. Friday she didn't sign any time off papers and just left her badge in our storage room. That was the last we saw of her, though she's been missing since Saturday, last seen leaving her cousin's boyfriend's house. No one has been able to contact her or track her phone's location. She just disappeared. There are some odd parts that could seem worrying such as her not even telling her best friend, whom she's been known to tell everything to, anything about going somewhere.

It's honestly just sad thinking about something bad happening to her. So as crappy as her just taking off is, I hope that's the case. It's better than the alternatives.

Also the husband of another co-worker of mine sounds like he's on his deathbed, so she's going to be away however long she needs. We're understaffed even more.

So of course I got a job offer. I need to ask a few questions about before filling out the application. Great timing universe...

If it ends up working out with that job it's not gonna be fun to hand in a notice with what's currently going on. But I'm not giving up the chance to get out of this hellhole if the jobs ends up being what I'm looking for.

:sigh:
