RIP Chase

One of our chinchillas died today. It's very strange because he hadn't been acting weird or anything and we have no idea what caused it. He was just laying on the bottom of his cage stiff as a board looking like he was trying to run, only on his back.

It's not a good memory for our Thanksgiving, that's for sure.

Everyone is very upset as he was the Good chinchilla -- the friendly one with lots of energy. Ariel, aka Ms. Crankypants, is still going strong. She's finally gotten used to us and actually lets us pet her. A bit. On the head only. She still fights when we try to get her out of the cage, but it's still progress even if slow.

On a good note, our dining room table is actually cleared off so we can start eating off it again. It's only been about 3 years since my business took it over.

Damn economy

Mr. Mac got a raise. Good. But he also has to do an involuntary furlough day once a week for the indefinite future. Bad.
