so it’s a friday night


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!

I am going to try and incorporate one of my favorite assignments from a writing class I took in college.  The assignment was to write five thoughts or observations every single day.  I still do this in my little orange notebook (not the blog, but my cute little journal), so I thought I might share some on here from time to time.
