What I had for dinner on Wednesday, March 14, 2012

In transit home from Austin. I had some airport bloody mary, some airport vegetarian sub sandwich, and some homemade beef jerky.

Up too late

… so I am reading and sharing ILU-486, a heartbreaking, scarily potentially-realistic, Handmaid’s Tale-like dystopian fiction about a world that exists after the passing of some current and real (i.e. non-fictional) legislation that might have a very, very significant effect on reproductive rights and health, which is to say, basic women’s health care. Every part [...]

Wake

So, I never said on this blog about Oscar.

I mentioned that he had a scary episode that resolved itself. After that he started eating again mostly, but it was just a few — maybe six? weeks — before we noticed his appetite was declining and he was losing weight pretty severely. I blogged about [...]

Oscar has a scary

Oscar, the best dog ever, had an unexpected and undesirable vet visit this morning. G. texted me just as I was getting out of the bus tunnel with “Oscar is sick we are at the vet.” I immediately started freaking out and he called a few seconds later to say Oscar had been curled up [...]

Trapped on the couch

Ruby’s head is on my leg and I daren’t move her because I am afraid to disturb her wounds. She tangled with either a raccoon or some sort of farm equipment at 3 o’clock this morning. We had all gotten up to check on some noises we all heard, and found three of our five [...]

Rocky came too, but he wasn’t as cuddly so he wasn’t fully in the shot.

Also, yes, I am totally unabashedly back-dating this post so [...]

Miss Ruby June (Day 18)

Miss June has no hairs on her belly, which is sad for her, sometimes.

SO I MADE HER WEAR MY SWEATSHIRT.

Dear Ruby,

Please blame my sister for the following.

Love,

Your totally annoyed pillow in the middle of the night when you decide to come to bed and lay horizontally at about knee level,
aka,
Lauren.

Alone time

I was supposed to go camping today with G. and some other friends, but last night Ruby came in from the woods all limpy and whiny about it. This morning it wasn’t any better, and was actually worse, so we went to the vet. All muscles and joints seemed fine yet she was clearly hurty [...]

At least she’s predictable.
