Hello August, broken finger and more

Pixlr (1)You guessed it - still hot. But I think it's supposed to get a bit better as the week goes on. Although tomorrow a tropical storm is coming through which will bring a lot of rain and wind. Fingers crossed on that. At least it won't be hurricane strength by the time it hits us but when we checked yesterday we were supposed to be in the direct path where we are here in CT so we will see how that goes. 

The weekend was one day of really hot weather and one day of humid but slightly cooler weather with rain. Saturday Mike brought the car in for an oil change and check-up. And later we drove to Westport for lunch at Rizzuto's. Sunday we slept in a bit and then checked out the new Flipside location in Milford, CT. They did a really good job with the design and location. It's right by the water overlooking a small marina with a big outdoor terrace. We sat outside even though it ended up raining on and off the whole time we were there. But honestly it was kind of refreshing. Ran some errands afterwards and then watched some more of "The Umbrella Academy". I think we are three episodes into season 2 now. And well here we are, and it's Monday again. 

In other news, as I mentioned in my last post, our cat Mindy now needs to be on a special diet and some meds for 30 days. Well, she isn't really a fan of the med I have to give her each day. It's a gooey kind of consistence and you put it into a syringe and then push it into her mouth. Well the first few days I was doing this by myself and it more or less went ok. Well day 3 (last week Tuesday) she wasn't having it. I tried giving her the med. struggled with her a bit, my left ring finger bent backwards, I heard a pop/crack and then felt a searing pain. I ended up deciding that a trip to urgent care was probably the best idea, especially since I was having trouble getting my rings off. They did an x-ray and at first told me it wasn't broken. Maybe 45 minutes later, just shortly after I got back home, the doctor called me and told me that in fact there is a hairline fracture and to come back and get a splint. Joy. So I have been wearing that plus I have a follow up appointment with an orthopedic doctor next week to check how everything is healing. Needless to say giving Mindy her daily med has become a two person job between Mike & me :)
