Our Shih Tsu got her "Elizabethan" collar off Friday. It was funny watching her, even though we felt sorry for her in her efforts to get around. She tried to go through the "doggy door," and it was a sight! And yes, we did open the door for her! She bumped around a lot but adapted quite well. I think she kinda liked the fact that the collar was a great way to catch all the doggie snacks!
We're still not certain about our Mini Schnauzer, Zoey. She has congestive heart failure. She's on meds but she's losing weight rapidly, even though she continues to have a good appetite. We go back to the vet on Wednesday. (Holding my breath...)
We got the bill for our rent, which includes all utilities. Our previous summers have been totally out of sight - like $400-$500 for electric. I tentatively opened the envelope, expecting to have the vapors, but the electric was $65!!!! The swamp cooler we had installed has now paid for itself! It's so dry here we're not bothered by the moisture. I keep telling hubman that it's good for all of my houseplants. (My former husband said when he came home at night he felt like he had to grab a vine to swing through the living room. It's true - I love plants!)
Had a email message on FB from my son's ex (?), completing dragging me and hubman over the coals for all the wicked and evil stuff we've done to my son. I blocked her from FB. There's definite mental issues here - and I'm not trying to be hateful. It's the troof. (For those of you who may not know - he's 42 and a total wreck.)
No plans for the week ahead except a trip to Target for sundries. Oh, the trip to the vet, too. I saw a cartoon last week (Pickles- It's the adventures of an older retired couple). Their daughter asks them to go to dinner with her and her husband, but they pass because they'd miss Jeopardy! I thought, "Oh, Lord. Please don't let me get that bad!"
Wishing you blue skies, lollipops and rainbows.... Crap. Now I've got to go wash out my ears. I hate that song!
