I had my allergy panel yesterday. Guess what I'm most allergic to? (I say most allergic because there are lots of things.)
Yup. My cat. And dogs. So I guess I'm going to be a fish type person the rest of my life. The doctor was telling us about how we should not have a cat, and if we do, we should have wood or tile floors, blinds (not curtains), a hepa filter, blah blah blah, at least one allergen free zone where the Jino is not allowed. The bedroom. I can't kick her out of there. She's so cute. He was going through the list of things I should do, dust often, vacuum constantly, all those keeping the house clean things that I don't do. So, instead of going too crazy, I think we're going to have things to look for when we rent our next apartment/house. Since the furniture is all owned by the landlady, this will make de-catting the milk crate/apartment easier.
Some news places call the place where the Olympics this year Turin. Since I was used to hearing Torino, I was a little confused. I found a good site that explains it well.
I found this thing (not sure what to call it) a while back, lost it, and found it again when Nipper used it. I did my name, and Jino's because I was feeling bad about ignoring her.
