We are having a rough time with out little cat, Fleury. He's like a runt, only 5lbs, but perfectly healthy and scrappy. Well, he is perfectly healthy besides having random seizures. We don't know why. His bloodwork is fine. Let me tell you, they are terrifying. He just had one about a half hour ago and I am still rattled. This started 3 years ago, he had one, then nothing for 3 years!

At the beginning of 2024 he started to get like 2 a day, then he went to 1 every other day, then finally he went 8 weeks with none! That brings us to this week, they are starting again.

They only last about a minute or two, but those are two minutes feel like eternity.

Yes, we went to the vet after that scary first week of 2024. Fleury wasn't real happy about that. They examined him and did bloodwork and everything was normal. But we had a video of the latest seizure, so the vet got to see it.

He gave us a med, but the episodes stopped again. I didn't want to give him a med while he wasn't having them. The vet agreed.

But since they are starting again, I think we need to go to the med. I don't want him to suffer if I can't keep these from happening. I wish the one a day pills were smaller. They are HUGE, and I don't think he's going to take it.

I hope to get him started before Monday. I can't stand to watch him go through these episodes. And it does stress me out worrying that he is in pain. So I'm a shaken mess right now. I'm praying he can go the next few days without, just for his well being, and ours. Ugh... being a pet mommy is hard!

If you didn't already know, my mom and I enjoy going to see psychic mediums at a fair they have locally a few times a year. It reminds me of a book signing, with tables of vendors (mediums, tarot card readers, vendors selling crystals or oils or whatever, palm readers, and reiki masters) some have cards or flyers, others don't. I try to say hello to everyone I pass, because I know I appreciate that when I'm the one sitting at the table.

We've been to enough of these that we have "favorite" mediums, and go to the next one hoping they will be there. I've had readings that were spot-on and others not so much. I'm a believer, but a believer that needs you to prove it to me, lol.

Usually I dive head first into these fairs, researching many of the mediums that will be there and trying quite a few. (but if Grandma is going to come around to talk to you that day, how many different things does she really feel like conveying?) I'm not for palm reading (yes, I've had it done and she was pretty accurate) nor am I into tarot cards (just not my thing.) I'm also not there to find the meaning of life or ask about lottery numbers (or who is going to win the Stanley Cup.) Some readers delve into your past lives, others talk to your angel guides. Again, not my thing. I basically am there in the hopes that a loved one or friend that has passed will make themselves known or send me a little message. Not asking a lot, huh?

Here's where you'll get a laugh at my expense.

Twice I wore my Supernatural (tv show) shirt. I thought I was being cute and figured what better place to wear it? If you watched the series, then you know the logo. My shirt had an outline of Sam, Dean, and Cas, and said POSESSED AND OBSESSED. Surely everyone at a psychic fair must know all about the Winchesters, right? So I thought. The family business? Hunting things?

The first time I wore it I got so many compliments on my shirt. Yep, I was feeling cute in my little Sam and Dean fangirl bubble that day. I wore it again the next time we went. But this time so many folks asked where I got it (my husband bought it for me on Torrid, I proudly explained.) Then many asked if I had a table at the fair. No. Well, are you with one of the readers? No. A few told me I have "the gift", they can see it. And why wasn't I there reading?

It was weird. No, I'm not anything close to a medium. I do consider myself an empath, only because I feed off of others emotions and moods. But, no, no angels are talking to me - that's why I'm there paying you folks!

When I got home it dawned on me (yeah, I'm a bit slow on the uptake.) They didn't know my shirt was from a TELEVISION SHOW. A FICTIONAL FANDOM. They thought the symbol on it was about the real supernatural (not the tv show.)

Face palm. Ugh.

My sister was like, "yeah, I figured that's what they thought your shirt was." But there I was, proud as can be showing off my SPN fandom, lol.

How embarrassing!

And no, I will not be wearing that shirt there again!

Hi there! There hasn't been a whole bunch going on in my world lately, and with my favorite soap gearing up to bring back the beloved Jason Morgan I thought I'd talk a little about when I got to meet Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson. If you don't know, they have a podcast and a Patreon channel. It has grown over the last few years.

You might wonder why I chose this topic. Well, it's always a good time to talk about Steve Burton! But also, Steve is returning to General Hospital next week! So why not talk about Steve?

In 2019 I was able to go see Stone Cold and the Jackal at a local comedy club. The show was awesome, but I was super star struck getting to see Steve Burton in person. I have loved him since Jason Q the goody turned into Jason Morgan the mob enforcer! So of course I jumped at the chance to see him, AND get a VIP ticket so I could meet him and Bradford as well.

The show was hilarious and fun. Mr. G and I used it as a date night. Of course he didn't follow everything GH related that they talked about but he got some of it since I've been an avid watcher.

At the end of the show, all of the VIPs got in line to meet the guys on stage. I was a nervous wreck, and then I think my nerves took over. I became hot, dizzy, and nauseous. I really thought I was going to pass out! Luckily, Mr. G was with me, and eventually I was fine.

When it was my turn to get on stage, I was awe-struck with Steve standing right in front of me. Bradford gave me a big hug (he is so down to Earth and friendly! Plus he is a great singer.)

Tall and muscular Steve smiled at me and commented to me being the "lady with the pretty eyes" - OMG... SWOON!!!

As I stared at him all derpy, and he gave me a big hug.

These two are amazing people. They are kind, caring, down to Earth, gentle, and awesome.

And of course I got pictures to prove it.

Then in 2022 they finally returned to Pittsburgh and of course I was there (and dragged Mr G with me as a "date night"). Again their show was amazing. By now Steve had left GH, and honestly, I wasn't sure there would be another tour after this one, so I made sure I was there!

(Spoiler Alert: Steve is back on GH as of next week - well, he's been on set, but we will finally see him next week.)

We had been through the 2020 Pandemic since the last show, so now there were no more hugs (bummer). But we still had the VIP meet with the guys. This time they stayed on stage and we stood in front of the stage. It made for kind of odd photo ops, but none the less I still got to stand with Steve and Bradford!!

And this time Steve said he loved my shirt. He is big on focus on the positive side of things. So I purposely wore my CREATE YOUR OWN SUNSHINE shirt.

And, pictures or it didn't happen, right? (I think if you click on the photos they expand so Mr G isn't really cut off, nor is Bradford or Steve's head, lol.)

Oh, and I didn't almost pass out this time either, lol.
