Crossing fingers that activity yesterday doesn't come back to bite me later. I shoved around furniture - as carefully as possible - since the large area rug and a smaller one in the living room were well overdue for shampooing. I also had to do the usual battle with my shampooer since every time I empty the water to do the next batch of carpet, it's fussy and the suction isn't as good. But the floor feels SO much better since I cleaned it. I do have some odd pain on the middle inside of my thighs which will make tai chi fun tonight but I'm still going.

I'm celebrating #NationalCatDay by driving around with 56 pounds of kitty litter in my trunk. When it goes on sale, I stock up. Litter is one thing that I don't buy online and have delivered because it's happened more than once that when they thunk the box down, the bag breaks and then that's a mess and litter wasted. The brand I buy is expensive but it's the one that was used at the shelter so I stick with it since it's what they prefer. In Petco, a 14 pound bag of World's Best costs $17.99. The same bag of litter costs $15.49 at Target. It's not like Petco is some little bitty neighborhood pet store so it's highway robbery that they charge that much. Every now and then, there's a deal on the Target Cartwheel app where it's 20% off and when it is, I pick up a few bags. That was the case and it was a limited time offer where the sale started Sunday and ends today. Not only that but when I went yesterday and got the last two bags, someone had left a manufacturer's coupon for $3.50 off. When I got home, I looked in the coupons that veritasema gave me and there was another $3.50 so I went to a different Target at lunch and got another two bags. So in total, instead of paying $71.96 (before tax) at Petco, I paid $42.56. Can't pass up that deal and it's not like I won't use it. I'll try to remember to bring in one bag when I get home. I never try to heft more than one 14 pound bag at a time.

And in random "It's almost Halloween!" silliness

That is the most perfect sentence I've ever read ;)

Have a wonderful time at Tai Chi!

Oh, and reason #145 why it kinda sucks to be Canadian at times--that video is "banned in my country". o_O

Awwww MAN, it’s a clip from Saturday Night Live.

I haven’t brought any litter in yet. I feel like I’m some pusher who is going to drive around the neighborhood selling my contraband litter. Psst, hey, hey, you need something for your pussy? I got what you’re looking for!

Tai chi was decent, though I suspect since I was out the last couple of weeks that my buddy didn’t go since she didn’t show up tonight. Ah well!

Kinda sucks that your friend didn't show up, but I'm glad you went :) You must feel great today <3

Chewy seals the boxes of litter in plastic.... no leakage!

That must be a new thing they’re doing since they were the culprits. Then again, they’ve been using the worst shipping company around here of Lasership

D is a smart shopper! You could always keep a bag in your trunk in case you ever need the litter for traction when your car is stuck in the snow.
