OK, I haven’t written in like a month. For some reason I tend to do this- I’ll blog a bunch at once, and then nothing for awhile. So here is what is going on:
-My dog cannot seem to get her shit together, literally. She is having some sort of tummy issue. We think it might be a gluten allergy, but it results in a lot of the runs, and poop that is the consistency of raspberry jam. Somehow I always knew deep in my heart that I would wind up with a dog that had some crazy issue, because the universe knows I have way too big of a heart to just give up on a sick animal and take it to a shelter or something. No way, no how. So we’re trying organic gluten-free protein-based Bil Jac. The encouraging thing is that we have heard from many people that their dog had something similar, and it just took finding the right diet to regulate it- I’ll let you know how it goes.
-The husband got laid off in late March. (I’m too lazy to pause writing this and see if I already mentioned this, but I don’t think I did.) So he’s job hunting, but is in general good spirits and has a good lead or two. In excellent news for me, this lay-off has resulted in him cooking dinner almost every night for me. And he actually cooks, it’s not just a sandwich or something- tonight was Sesame Ginger Shrimp with couscous. Yes, please.
-I got accepted to grad school! I start in the fall. I can’t decide whether I’m totally insane, or going to dominate. I’m hoping for an outcome of dominating with only the occasional bout of insanity and the rare mental breakdown/panic attack. I have 2 classes for the fall semester, so we’ll see how it plays out and if I ever have a social life again for the next 2-3 years.
-In news that is probably exciting only to me and the husband, we paid off our wedding rings today, therefore being completely free of any and all wedding debt. Th-rilling, seriously.
-I will have a new niece on June 6 or so, barring any changes in the C-section. My only niece is about to have her world rocked when she stops being the center of attention.
-The husband’s dad (recipient) and sister (donor) are doing really well post-kidney transplant. No major problems for either, we’re calling it an early success. =)
The end. I am le tired from a day of lots of advising/meetings, no caffeine and hot yoga- deuces.
