Alllmost there ... just have to make it til tomorrow around noon ... alllllmost there ...

After Snowbunny gets off work today -- around 4:30 p.m. or so -- she and I will go out to look for specialized dog food. It seems that Eddie has some kind of a food sensitivity ... and quite a few allergies. I don't know how much of that is true, I'm just glad for the opportunity to get out of the house (and go driving somewhere).

Alllllmost there ...

Ahhhhh ... such a relief. Of course I do have a price to pay. I have to scoop out Rainee's litter box, among other things. But it is worth it.

This peppermint schnapps is really strong. I underestimated it. I must slow down my drinking speed. I think I'll have some hunter sausage.

Last night, SB and I, in addition to the dog food quest (at PetLand I believe it's called), went to Albertson's and did some people shopping. Bonus.

Today, Brother-Husband, Snowbunny, and Eddie are gone to go to the Barn Hunt trials in Colorado. Meantime, Rainee and I get to have a party!

Alright alright, so I overdid it a little. I ended up with some nausea, but I did not throw up. Today I'm just drinking out of a shot glass, instead of a mug.

Rainee is keeping me company.

As of today, I have finished off the entire bottle of peppermint liqueur. And I'm glad I did it! We have some holiday nog too, I haven't decided whether I'll have any of that today.

SB says (in an email) that Eddie did a good job in Barn Hunt this weekend. He got two Q's (Qualifying runs), and only needs one more to earn his next (final?) title. BH, SB, and Eddie probably won't leave the event until at least 3:00 p.m., and it'll be at least 10:00 p.m. when they get home. I'll feed Rainee her dinner, and scoop out her litter box.

So on the way back (from Barn Hunt), BH and SB got a flat tire. As a result, they didn't get back til after midnight. Today, BH took the day off, and took SB's car to get new tires. Then he took a nap.

I finished off the holiday nog. It was okay, but I wouldn't get it again. Apparently it doesn't have real eggs in it. Plus I had a little scotch. Today, SB presented me with some cannabis she had bought for me in Colorado. I requested to have some right away, which she accommodated. Sadly, it hasn't had much of an effect so far.

I forgot to mention, on Sunday I also (after getting caught up on everything) played a Chess bot game. I played against the same 1400-point bot as last time, only this time I was Black. Miraculously, I managed to win. By the skin of my teeth. The bot did make two or three glaring errors, which saved my butt. Things (in bot Chess) are getting too complicated for me, I'm starting to struggle, and dread new games.

I won't be ready for "advanced" level (1500-point bots) until I beat the Chess engine at 1400 points two games in a row (once as White, then once as Black). That victory seems to be a long ways away.

Rainee went to the vet for some dental work today, they said she did well, she just has to wait awhile for the anesthetic to wear off. SB and I will leave at about 3:40 p.m. to go pick her up. After we drop her off here, we'll probably go back out and do some shopping.

Rainee's still doing pretty good. She is however missing her collar, which, the vet called us and confirmed that they have it. They'll be closed until Monday, but we can pick it up then.

I'm more stressed-out than usual today, I need to pull my shit together. BH is off tomorrow, so we might watch something on TV tonight. SB and I did a moderate amount of shopping last night after dropping Rainee off at the house.

For Thanksgiving yesterday, we had a special smoked turkey ... and it was edible, but I wouldn't want to get it again. For one thing, it was too smoky. It was so smoky it smelled (and tasted) like those times when you sit by the campfire, and no matter where you sit, the smoke follows you. Anyway, I'm not sure I like turkey smoked even if it is smoked within reason. Maybe having too much smoke this one time ruined it for me, I don't know. I'm just glad we had cranberry sauce to help cover up the taste. Now SB also made deviled eggs for us, and about that I have no complaints. That may be my all-time favorite food. She boiled a dozen eggs, so that made 24 halves. By the time the smoke cleared, all 24 had been eaten.

Showtime has a deal where you can get it for free right now, then pay like less than $5.00 per month for like three months. Using that deal, BH got a Showtime subscription for us, and we were able to watch the first two of the new Dexter episodes last night. SB liked the episodes okay, but they were a little slow for her taste. We'll see if the action/suspense picks up over the next few episodes.

Last night, we watched the third new Dexter episode, the last that will be available until probably late tomorrow. I thought it was pretty good, but still not a ton of action/suspense, so I don't know whether SB liked it.

SB ordered me a new bedspread (Rainee had picked the hell out of the one I had), and it arrived yesterday or today, so SB had me strip my bedding, to clean it all before putting the new bedspread on.

For dinner at 4:00 p.m. today, we have a reservation at a fancy restaurant, called Farm and Table. I'm super hungry (trying to fast), so it should be quite an enjoyable meal. At this moment, BH and SB are out shopping for a dresser for their bedroom. SB said they probably wouldn't be gone for long, but it's been a while, so. Hopefully they'll be back by about 3:30 p.m. or so.

So Farm and Table was really good, we want to go back there, but it is really expensive. The food and drink for the three of us ran up to over $200.00 ... it will be a while before we can afford to go there again.

After dinner, we went to Hobby Lobby, mostly just to browse although SB did get a couple of white markers. Then we went to Total Wine. Didn't find exactly what we were looking for, but we did get some drinks that nearly/precisely matched what we drank at Farm and Table. SB got a bottle of really good port, and BH got some Zia piñon cola. For my own part, I got what looked like some extra good eggnog (c. $18.00), and some Jäger (c. $21.00).

After we got home, BH and I watched a documentary about the Satanic Temple. We were so charmed by what we saw, that we wanted to attend a TST gathering. Unfortunately, there are no TST chapters in New Mexico (at this time).

BH and SB were not able to find a dresser they liked (for the right price). In the future, they might look for one at Savers, Salvation Army, or Goodwill.

For the last couple of hours, Rainee has been sleeping under the new bedspread on my bed. A nice warm, soft spot for her. :)

This concludes my riport.

Had a rather busy day yesterday, I had a dentist appointment that started at 2:00 p.m., and after that, SB and I went shopping, and also picked up Rainee's collar/necklace. Rainee has a sore on her neck, in the area where the vet shaved her, so we aren't going to put the collar on her yet. With which I'm somewhat uncomfortable, but it's probably fine, Rainee is good about not trying to go outside, and she is microchipped (with current information).

We had pizza for dinner last night, we got it at a Pizza 9 location, it was decent but nothing to write home about. Rainee is sleeping under my covers again today. She's really taken to that, and I have no complaints.

Eddie has an obedience class at 5:00 p.m., I am going along for the ride, so I will need to start getting ready very soon. Not a lot going on. The three of us (BH, SB, and I) may be going on a "Christmas stroll through Old Town" in a couple of days, if I remember right. I don't know what all that entails.

We decided to not do the Christmas stroll, as it was not what BH was expecting. Apparently it would just be walking and shopping. SB said that she and BH would be going on a road trip, either this Sunday or a week after, with a local friend. I look forward to that because I will have the house to myself, and can drink my eggnog.
