My Horrific Halloween

I have had the worse Halloween/Anniversary ever. Yes my 8th Anniversary was yesterday and the day was just plain awful. First the dreaded period started, now that is always a wonderful thing to get on your Anniversary, then I woke up with a terrible cold. We had made an appointment for our cat to get fixed and he had to be at the vets between 7 - 8 am. My husband works nights so he had to get up to take the cat the vets cause I needed to stay home and get out daughter off to school.
I had ordered my husband a cake for our Anniversary, we went to pick it up and I had ordered it from the wrong Wegmans. We only had a little bit of time cause we needed to get to school for our daughter's Halloween parade. Plus there is terrible construction on the most direct route to take, but we made it back in time for the parade, after the parade we figured we would go to her class room and spend some time there before taking her home. WRONG, you had to be put on a list in order to go to her class room, now no where in any paper work that I recieve did it say you had to be on a list in order to go to the class room after the parade. OK we wait around till 3 pick her up and we go off to the Vet to pick up the cat. We get the beloved Smokey from the vet and we decide that why don't we let him out of his cage into the car, well the door didn't get shut in time and the freakin cat bolted out the door and you know the vet is in the country and the car parked right next to the woods. So the cat took off into the woods, mind you we didn't leave the vets till 4:50 to get home so the baby could eat before going trick or treating at 5:30. For almost 2 hours my husband roamed around in woods full of prickers trying to find the cat. NO CAT. So we left went trick or treating, after that we went back to the vets, mind you the vet is 20 minutes away. Still couldn't get the cat. What an aweful day. I love my cat.
We get up the this morning, I am sicker than a dog with an aweful head and chest cold. Off to the vets we go to try and get the cat again. We get there, I hear him meowing, I finally see him and get him to come close enough to grab him, couldn't get him in the car fast enough, before he got away from me. Now my finger is bleeding all over the place, he took a nice chuck out of my finger, scratches across both middle and ring finger and the cat is back in the woods. Then I notice the vet had leases hangin on a post outside, I grab one of them and 20 minutes later coaxed the cat back out of the woods, with a dish of food and put that lease on his neck. He is home safe and sound now pigging out in the kitchen on food. Let's hope the rest of today goes better, atleast we are off to a good start with the kitty being home, which makes me very happy.

Oh my what a day. Hope it gets better! Aren't cats fun?! I love my cat but sometimes I think they love to get their revenge on us. We just got home from a week's vacation and I called and called my kitty to let him know I was home. He waited hours before coming in - I think he was punishing me for being gone. I knew he was around because the person feeding him all week saw him the night before. :)
