Is it the weekend yet? Is it really only Tuesday, still?
On a positive note, I woke up this morning feeling really rested and refreshed. Well, I guess so. That’s what happens when you sleep in past day break and you roll out of bed at your usual 5:15/5:30 am time slot. Okay, I lie, I got my ass out of bed at 5:40 and realllllllly took it easy this morning.
As I mentioned in my Meet the Canines Link Up Post, when one of our dogs usually has a cone of shame on, the other is never far off from wearing one of his own. You see, I guess almost 2 weeks ago or so, Charlie stopped wearing his cone because he was finally healed and he was no longer attacking his foot to lick/”make better”. Yeah well I pulled out the cone, again, last night but this time for Mr. Baxter. He has licked between his pads raw on one of his back feet and he just.wont.stop. So, the cone it is. Makes me sad, as I’ve said before, when the boys are wearing a cone. I thought Charlie was bad but last night after putting it on Baxter, I realised that he’s far, FAR suckier than Charlie when he’s got the cone on. He just wants to sit with you and comfort him. And he has the saddest eyes you’ve ever seen, it’s pathetic. So tonight I think we’re going to do some epsom salt soaks (swear by these) and see where we are from there. I don’t imagine he’ll be wearing it for long but nevertheless he is and he’s none too thrilled about it. I had to laugh last night when I pulled out the cone, though. Charlie disappeared and hid, probably because he thought HE was going to be wearing it but alas, no, he is not wearing the cone and he’s pretty happy about it. So happy to the point he was being a dick to Baxter last night, being the bully older brother. It’s okay though, we made sure Toad was good. (By the way, if I refer to Toad, I’m talking about Baxter.)
I just got back from a good sweat sesh at the gym. Today was the new release for Body Pump and boy was it a sweaty one! (Are they ever NOT sweaty, though?! Come on now!).
Some news with regards to my MIL: She didn’t qualify for a lung transplant. She isn’t well enough. So, once again, things are in perspective and there really isn’t much they can do other than to keep her as comfortable as possible.
I had wanted to write so much today but I’m at a loss and pulling a complete blank now so let’s just call it a day. Hope you guys have a great Tuesday!
