I just got home, looong day. The good news is that Gelato might make it for a little while longer. Her kidneys are only about 25% functional but with really careful home care she could live a while like that. That's providing she continues to improve. The doctor was really nice, shhh don't tell my sweetheart, but I should so marry a vet. Maybe he'll go to veterinary school, not.

Umm, what else, oh my therapist went to a funeral today, because one of her suite mates, a woman she's known for ten years, died in a car accident. She has a five year old daughter, and she was a children's therapist. I try to believe that things happen as they are meant to, but it seems so sad. Susan said (I have a lot of Susans in my life, so just so you don't get confused, this is Susan my therapist) she thinks a part of her must have known because just that morning she had suddenly felt like going to church when she hadn't been in years.

Oh and I got my oil changed. That should be a relief to the car conscientious among you.

These are some dresses of my grandmother's that I am bidding on. I get so excited when I find one. I am sooo slowly building my precious collection, and take it so personally when anyone tries to outbid me. I always have to consider whether to put them up here for you to see because I worry someone will want to bid on them. Please don't, I would be so sad. Not that these are the best examples, the pictures don't do them justice, but sometimes people like them like I do.

I lost one to a woman in Alaska of all places, (who knew she would bid over three hundred, which I thought was a high, safe, max to set), and I lost another one to a woman who buys and resells prom dresses. I begged her for it, offered to pay double or triple what she had paid but noooo, nope, no luck, she sad she just might want to wear it as a wedding dress, monster woman. I know all is fair in love and bidding, but this is my FAMILY we're talking about here, not just any old vintage dress. I read in People that Winona Ryder is planning on selling off her clothing hoard to donate the moneys to charity. I've been hearing for years that she is a big vintage buyer. I've heard that both she and Demi Moore, have warehouses to store their collections. I would so love to see if they had any of my Mother or Grandmother's dresses.

I want to be thinner so I can wear these clothes. I LOVE vintage clothing. I'd also like to be thinner so I could ride horses, scuba dive more confidently, be able to do more, umm, exciting things with my partner, be healthier, look better and feel more confident about myself, but unfortunately I don't seem to be able to pull it off. I'll keep hoping and trying though.
