Life has been hectic lately! The joys of being a homeowner finally kicked in. And by joys, I mean absolutely frustrating, hair-pulling-out, makes me want to punch a wall but I won’t since that would be another thing to fix, this sucks BIG ONES. So currently, parts of our house are rotting, ugly, or just plain leaking (as of last night’s crazy ass storm). Why did everyone tell us to buy? No, rent. For all of you renters, keep on renting! Rent until you can’t rent no more. I’m gonna go buy a can of neon green paint and paint a wall so I can remember why I am a homeowner. So I can paint a freaking wall?! The light at the end of the tunnel is pulsing red and slowing disappearing right now.
In another area of my life, I could use some happy and positive thoughts. A few months ago, Lucy had a leg injury. Not a visible one, but she was limping. We figured she was tired from swimming and didn’t think much of it. A few days later, she was drooling. Not like your average dog drooling, she was drooling a lot. We took her to the vet, and they really couldn’t find anything wrong with her. They sent us home with some advice to keep her inside and inactive and some meds.
Well, we gave her time to heal and then began walking her again. The limping came back after she was active. It would go away after a few days, but she was clearly not using her leg as much. So last weekend, she had a pretty exciting one as we were staying with friends and helping them move. She has been limping ever since. Tomorrow, we take her in to the vet again. Cross your fingers that they figure out what is wrong with her. It breaks my heart to see her in pain. It’s worse because she can’t tell me exactly what hurts.
Also, last but not least! Please think some good thoughts for my brother’s girlfriend. Her dog went missing over the weekend. She’s received some tips that has led them to believe that someone picked her dog up and sold him. They went looking for him again tonight received more tips about the guy who sold him. Let’s hope we can get the pup home to where he belongs.
Sorry this was such a bummer. TGIF! And happy weekend!
When I got home from work on Tuesday night, the other human in the house pointed to my camera on the counter.
“What’s my camera doing out here? Do you want me to look at a picture?”
Here’s a very cute video of Lucy getting treats! Happy hump day. It feels good that we’ve reached the middle of the week.
And may I just say that I am ready for some sunshine and warmer weather? All this “cold” and rain forces me come home from work and change straight into my pjs (hence the lack of blog posting). Until the weather lightens up, I am going to cuddle this sweet dog and become dormant.
Alright folks. I have finally entered the digital age! And by that, I mean my dumb-phone has been replaced by a smartypants-phone! It was a very unexpected Christmas present from R hidden in the bottom of my stocking.
I’m not having fun.
I hope you enjoy this series of pictures of the dog “helping” out with “untangling” of lights. Sorry for two dog posts in a row. The holiday season is in full swing here!
If Lucy could go to college, she would go to the University of Minnesota of course! We picked up some Gopher gear while we were visiting the homestate, and we had to get this for the goose. It was strangely nostalgic walking through campus and seeing all the buildings where I spent four years of my life. Also, it was strange seeing green grass and having to take my light jacket off in the middle of November. Weird. Where was the snow and freezing temperatures I was hoping for?!
Lucy turned three this past weekend! The boy bought her this hat for her first birthday, and she’s been wearing it every birthday since! Enjoy Lucy through the years. Here is to many more birthdays with this pooch.
Lucy turns one.
Lucy turns two.
Lucy turns three.
Hehe.. get it? I don’t know why she looks so dirty in this picture? Oh, it might be frozen french fry crumbs. This week has left me fried (pun intended), so I am very excited to be traveling to a warmer climate and seeing good friends!
Happy, happy weekend everyone!
Oh my dearest, sweetest, dingle-hopper Lucy. So this happened last Thursday morning. The boy takes Lucy out for her morning “routine” before he heads out to work. He then pops her back into the house. She usually finds her way back into the bathroom and sits by my feet while I finish getting ready. This particular morning, it was taking her a while to come find me. I gave her a quick call, and I didn’t really look, but I knew she was walking around behind me.
