It's Been A WEEK, So Here's a Sale

How does the saying go? The best laid plans... I began last week with the best intentions. I had my blog posts scheduled and outlined. I had new number posters to upload to my store. I outlined a completely new classroom management product and I was ready to hit the ground running and, for the first half of the week, I did.

It all seemed to fall apart last Thursday. Seven months ago, my husband and I decided to adopt two little kittens. Sisters named Luna and Noel. They were only a month old at the time and the days waiting for them to weigh enough to come home dragged on. We finally brought them home in January and since then, everything has been smooth sailing with them. 

That is…until Thursday. After waking up from an unusually late sleep, my good mood was immediately gone when my husband told me something was wrong with Luna. One quick look at her confirmed that there was definitely something wrong. Her eye was completely cloudy and her pupil wouldn’t dilate. I was baffled by how quickly she seemed to get sick. She was totally fine when I went to bed the night before. I immediately called the vet and brought her in that afternoon. It turns out she must have fallen or played a bit too roughly with her sister and had some blunt force trauma to her eye and somehow managed to get an infection from it.

My poor little fur baby had a fever and was not at all herself, but we saw the vet, got two antibiotics and that’s the end of the story, right? Ha, of course not! My adorable eight month kitten needed those antibiotics FIVE times a day! Thank goodness for summer vacation and hubs’ ability to work from home or I don’t know how we would have done it. Luckily, we started seeing some improvement right away and she seemed to be getting better. This is her on Saturday, after only two days of medication. 

Fast forward to a couple of nights ago, we notice that her eye isn’t dilating properly again. I called the vet and he prescribed more antibiotics. Another seven days of five doses of antibiotics a day. The possibility has been there all along that she would need a visit to the ophthalmologist too. Well, we are leaving for our honeymoon very early Sunday morning and the kittens will be staying with my brother who does not have a flexible work schedule or extra body to help wrangle Luna in to take her medicine. It might sound completely crazy, but I need answers before we leave or I just know I’ll be worrying the entire time. So, today we are off to the ophthalmologist. With a little more than two days until we leave for Aruba. Not a thing has been packed, but it will get done.

Anyway, if you stuck through this incredibly long story to see where the sale part of the title comes in, here it comes. Five of my best selling products in my TPT store will be on sale for only one dollar through Saturday.
