The Heart of Rock and Roll

I figured I should get on here to give an update about the chest pains that I was having the other day since I’m feeling better now. No pains at all yesterday, and only hints of it the day before. I even decided to keep my tentative plans and spun them so that it was actually beneficial to my then-current condition.

It was yet another deal where I made the agreement a while ago, and then when the day came I was less than enthusiastic for obvious reasons. ๐Ÿคขโค But Cassi’s brother Scott, he was doing a rare live performance (drums) with Rich Regal at the local Moose lodge – and since she had never seen him play live I didn’t wanna have to cancel. But when I thought about it, having someone around for a couple of days while I was feeling concerned… it would actually help put my mind at ease.

So we went to the show, which wasย (fortunately for my well-being… heh)ย only moderately attended while also being held in a rather large area of the lodge… so it actually ended up being a good time. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ™‚ It wasn’t really our style of music, but it was more about showing up to see and support Scott and Rich and the rest of them.

Having Cassi around yesterday also helped with my anxiety enough that I made a trip to the Walmart in Logan and did a “monthly” style grocery trip. ๐Ÿค— Lots of cans, boxes, and frozen stuffs… should last me a good long while. Other than that we’ve just been chilling and surprisingly doing a bunch of reading about job stuff, investment stuff, insurance stuff, doctor stuff, etc. ๐Ÿ˜ I found one of those somewhat cheezy “Book of Secrets” books at the thrift store, which attempts to give you all sorts of tips and trips regarding almost everything you might encounter in life, so we’ve been having a good time going through that and even learning some things we didn’t previously know.

As far as I’m concerned though, whatever was going on with those chest pains… I feel like I’m most likely past whatever it was. (Touch wood) Obviously I’ll mention it to my doctor whenever I makeย that appointment… heh… but I’ve put “wisdom teef removal” at the top of my priority list for the moment, but after I’m starting to realize that I can’t keep putting off those routine “You’re a middle age d00d now” family physician appointments. ๐Ÿ™„

I just completed a two-night assignment as “cat sitter” to help out Cassi. ๐Ÿ˜ณ Maintenance needed to be in and out of their apartment over the past couple days, and my house was the most logical place to deposit them so they wouldn’t be in anyone’s way or escape out into the neighborhood. ๐Ÿ˜บ Her and her mom’s three cats, the two cats that she inherited from Mom and Dad, and then my kitty upstairs… heh… it was a full house here.

My basement is separated down the middle, so we quarantined Z and Lily on one side and the rest of them on the other. I’d go down every couple of hours to check in on everyone and make sure everything was okay, and since Cassi’s cats had been here before they just settled into their old routine with their favorite spots to claim. ๐Ÿ˜ผ On the other side, Z wasn’t thrilled about the temporary relocation in general so she was being a grump, but Lily seemed excited to get to explore “new stuff” and would always run to greet me and love on me when I’d pop open the door. That was a different look for her. ๐Ÿ˜Š

It was an interesting process, getting them all loaded up for the return home. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ Lily and Z were both fine after a bit of objection about being loaded into their carriers. ๐Ÿ˜พ The others… well, the others were free to roam about the cabin as they pleased, so Cassi just had to hope that they’d all be chill once she was on the road. ๐Ÿ˜… I didn’t get any texts or calls, so I’m guessing they made it okay.

Funny thing is, during the whole process of getting them out of the basement and into her car, Maven just laid on the floor in the living room, oblivious to any noises they were making or what was going on just a couple rooms away. I’m glad though… ‘cuz this is her house first, and one of my conditions was that we did it in a way where my cat didn’t even have to knowย that there was company in the lower level.
