No posts, no banner, no nothing this week

This upcoming week is going to be one of the most hectic in my entire life. On Wednesday a company is going to come into my apartment and "clean" it (We're still not sure what that means). Then, on Thursday, another company is going to come in and fumigate the place. That means me and everyone else in the house has to stay out of the house for six hours following the spraying. So we've gotta send all the cats to a kennel (Yes, even the sick one), and find a place to hang out while everything cools off.

Now, in order for all this to go down, we have to get rid of a lot of the clutter in our house. That means cleaning out EVERYTHING. Today I filled two and a half garbage bags with junk from my bedroom alone, and I still have two more stuffed drawers to go through (And the closet... Haven't opened that in years). So yeah, that'll take up all of tomorrow.

Oh, and Friday? It's basically judgment day for the sick cat. It's the day when we decide whether or not to put her down this weekend. She's going to the vet, and after her appointment, the doc will tell us what they think. She has a tumor in her head, as well as a possible second tumor in her foot. And where there's a few, there's usually more. So it's not looking good.

Also, my mom's out on business now, and won't be back until Wednesday evening, leaving my sister, her fiance and I to fend for ourselves. Chores usually divided among four people are now divided among three, meaning more dishes, garbage runs, cat litter-cleaning and cooking for all of us.

Basically, my schedule this week is:

Monday: Clean, do tonnes of chores
Tuesday: Clean, do tonnes of chores
Wednesday: Let the company clean, do tonnes of chores
Thursday: Get the heck out of here
Friday: Weep

As you can see, I have a lot of stuff to deal with this week, and I just can't concentrate on writing, nor can I play a game enough to even make up a review in my head. Everything's happening this week. At least it's already partway over... But the worst is yet to come.

I hope you all understand and respect my situation, and decide not to charge at me with torches and pitchforks like last time.

So no posts, no banner, no nothing. I'm just going to extend the poll deadline, and that's it. Otherwise, this week in One Duck's Opinion history is already over. I guess I'll be back on the 27th...

...if I'm lucky.

Don't worry, Phil, everything went pretty well. I'll update y'all tomorrow.

Oh, man! I'm so sorry about your cat! I'll keep her in my prayers. Perhaps, if she is in pain, it's time to help her go to sleep peacefully?

Consider getting another needy cat to fill up the gaping hole that will be left behind when she goes.
Try not to get the same color or breed, and fall in love with him or her.

Other then that, how did your thanksgiving go? Here in the states, ours is still a month away; and Chrono Trigger comes out for us! I've never played it and getting pretty psyched about it!

Believe me, writer83, while I may miss her when she's gone, I'm in no hurry to grab another cat. Even when she's gone, I'll still have four felines!

Thank you for your kind words, though.
