Will this week never end?

Got an early wake up whine - somethings wrong with Sassy. We noticed Thursday night that she doesn't jump up on us anymore. Something we have been trying to teach her not to do but haven't had any luck. She would try to jump up and then stop midway and whine. However when we took them for a walk later on she was fine - pulling on her leash wanting to go faster. Then yesterday she still seemed sore but it looked like it was getting better - we guessed she played to hard with Mac. Well I was woken at 4 am by a loud whine from her. Dave had just gotten back from his store and had called her over and that is when she whined loud enough to wake me. So here i am waiting for the vet to open at 7am to take her. Taking her to the vet is not an easy task. The police had taken her from a home when she was 10months old where she had been abused and starved and put her in the shelter where we found her. She was 15lbs underweight!!!! She doesn't like strangers and doesn't like to have them touch and examine her when she is not hurting. They have one nurse she lets touch her but even with that one she has to be musseled and be near me all the time or she freaks and tries to bite. Not sure how today will go they may end up having to put her under to do any types of tests since she seems in a lot of pain. I don't think us just holding her will work when she feels this miserable :(.

55 more minutes till the Vet opens :)

SWEETBOX - Happy Valentine to me

I had a wonderful surprise waiting for me this morning. A sweetbox from the talented Ms Jin.

I knew it was on its way but I didn't think it would get here this quick. Of course I had to open it right away to see what goodies I got. There were football cookies which I am sure were meant for Grumpy (to ensure he wont eat my goodies - kind of like burglars throw meat to the dog to get distracted - not that Grumpy is a dog mind you)

Vanilla Bliss cookies for MEEEEEEE. There was also Brioche (the bread not the famous dog) and of course Cheese scones. I could not help it I had to eat one (two ...) right away.

I went ahead and placed a lot of it in the freezer or I will eat it all now and gain back the weight I lost. And to make up for the cookies and scones I went to the gym this afternoon. After I went to walgreens to pick up a V-card for Grumpy. I ended up buying him a present too hope he likes it and it fits.

Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Busy Bee

Wow it's been like forever since my last post. I thought about taking a some of my driving pics but decided that was just redundant as the trip to Charlottesville is always the same. I am getting better with the hole facebook / twitter thing. I love that if I update my twitter via text message it updates my facebook status.
Anyhow nothing much new here. Finally got my weight down enough that i can enter a study which hopefully means our efforts to procreate will be successful this year. No worries while I did splurge with 4 cookies after the doc told me i am in I did go to the gym today. The rest of the week will be pretty hectic. I leave for Richmond tomorrow - yippe oncology training but at least i get to meet up with some peeps I like. I will head back down here either tuesday night or wednesday morning for a DOC appointment and then back to Richmond. Thurday its of to Charlottesville and Friday off to Raleigh. The pitiful thing about my Raleigh meeting is they still have not given us any information the damn meeting is this weekend and I don't even know what hotel I need to go to. While there I may try to catch up with some friends that have a performance that weekend. Then Sunday its off to go back here as I have a Au pair meeting in the afternoon and Grumpy's little niece has started this new trend. Ever since I took her with me to the au pair meeting where we went Iceskating - and taught her how to skate we go every Sunday. She has gotten pretty good still falls down but is good about getting up her self and holding her balance.

As if I didn't have enough things to deal with this week my fricken washing machine is broken. Damit I have like 4 loads I need to wash nevermind I really don't have the cash to go get a new one no matter how much I'd like a this one. It just never ends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
