Normalizing

09.09.06 | Comment?

The week went by quickly! It seems that when I post something short with a promise of more and then don’t follow up, I get a call from Joel’s parents. 🙂 We had a nice chat though. I guess I just got busy this week. Tuesday was errand running and catching up, Wednesday was my rat/pigeon/fish lab, Thursday was work (apparently I didn’t actually quit?), and today I have had internet/phone problems. That allowed a flurry of house cleaning behavior – I even mopped – and a trip to the dog park. Anyway here I am.

I’m pretty much over it now, but long story short, the dogs did not behave themselves as I would have liked while I was gone. Then again they didn’t have the care I expected, either, so they can’t be blamed. At some point during my absence they came down with a horrid sickness that was cured this week with Immodium and a half cottage cheese diet. I should apologize to my vet for thinking he was a total quack when he suggested this because it totally worked. Things seem to be back to normal, and I’m doing a better job of tiring them daily; we’re walking more, and that’s good for all of us. I have to be their alpha dog if they are to be trained. Oh and Sarge is getting the ol’ snip snip on Monday.

I had another fabulous time in Arizona. The weather was perfect, Joel has a nice apartment (he keeps everything so tidy, while I’m becoming more slovenly by the day), and I got to celebrate my birthday with the man I love. Just to spend some time together is heaven. I’m hoping to work in one more trip before I go out there for his graduation in November and we drive home. We’re really looking forward to being normal and happy again.
