Shame on me...

OK, so today I stole from CPS. I drove ALL the way to the training I was supposed to attend, I swiped in, then turned around and walked right back out. I should probably feel guilty about my thievery, but alas, I do not. One day's pay doesn't even begin to compensate me for the stress and strife I have to deal with on a daily basis at the Hell-Hole. I'm sorry, I just can't feel bad about leaving.

I've managed to get a lot done today. I went straight to the grocery store and did all my shopping for my son's birthday party Sunday. (Did I mention I had to cancel last week's get-together? My son was sick all weekend.) Then I went to the post office and bought all my Christmas stamps, as well as some postcard stamps I needed. Then I came home, put the 12 bags of groceries away, stamped 40 postcards, did a load of dishes, updated my Christmas card list and baked a cake for the gang at the vet's office. And it's only a quarter after 12! It's amazing how productive you can be when you aren't at work! I even managed to eat a sandwich in there, too. Oh, and I changed two flood lights over my front porch, and 3 light bulbs in the lamp in my living room. Wow, I HAVE been a busy little beaver, haven't I? I'm about to tackle the 5 loads of laundry that are waiting for me, and that I need to get out of the way before company comes over Sunday.

I'll try to come back later and give those that care (Laura and KBL!) a Buster update. He's still at the vet's office, hopefully resting comfortably. I just hope there isn't going to be a lot of icky stuff for me to do once he comes home :( If I have to change dressings or pack his ear with gauze, it isn't gonna be pretty. Let's hope that isn't the case.

A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down. ---Robert Benchley

Hey, Girl!! I asked Laura to send me your email address last week, but she hasn't yet. Why don't you get mine from her. I can give you personal updates, since I'm trying hard to keep this blog about school. (Obviously, most days I don't succeed!) I even tried to take some pictures for you of my poor baby's head. Major ick!!!

I gave her my email for you. She probably hasn't had a chance to send it on.

I don't mind major ick. We saw and experienced the worst of the worst with Nick during his cancer battle, so nothing grosses me out about dogs now.

Hope all is healing well! Can't wait to read all about it. :-)

BTW, your boy is adorable. The human one I mean, not just the furry one. Hee hee.
