• I called Mom this morning to find out that she’s in the process of buying their tickets to Sydney. She, Joe, and my little brother Joey get here on Good Friday. That’s a week from this Friday! We have to clean the whole house, do the laundry, get groceries, work out where everybody’s sleeping, plan activities, ACK! (But I’m excited. This is the first time anyone from my immediate family’s visited me Down Under.)
  • Dr. Amy Jones has developed a bald patch under her right arm. I’m a little freaked out about it. She could have ringworm; she could just be stressed; she could just be stupid and overgrooming. Or maybe Nurgul put a curse on her. At any rate, she’s got an appointment at the V-E-T for Sunday.
  • I’ve had a crappy couple of weeks now, diet-wise. I do all right through the week but lately I’ve been falling apart on the weekends. Plus the weather has just started to feel like Fall, and with the end of Daylight Savings I’m finding it (as expected) reeeeally difficult to exercise after work. I don’t expect to have a loss tonight.

And yet I’m strangely optimistic about everything. I think it’s because it’s so sunny outside. Is there anything prettier than a bright Fall morning?

  1. Hannah (the lovely chocolate lab who keeps us humble)has a nasty habit of an occasional ‘hot spot.’ Her skin gets really dry and she scratches a spot until it’s basically raw. Not a pretty picture. This year is the first in a while that it’s come back. After reading a couple of things about it we changed her diet in case it was a food allergy. Now she eats better than we do: 🙂 a little chicken broth, rice, broccoli, carrots and tofu (or chicken) or oatmeal & apples and she is a happy, happy puppy.

    The change in her coat overall is unreal. It’s amazing how much shinier and softer it is. Don’t get me wrong, this is a *pampered* dog. But just doing this little thing made such a huge difference. And I’d much rather do this that get her a shot every month like the crazy lady downstairs does with her dog.
