Tonight I’m off to see Gone Girl with some lovely ladies. Tomorrow Max has a(nother) vet appointment at noon. He’s on new food now. Fingers and paws crossed for nice drop in blood glucose. Otherwise I don’t know what else to do – I really don’t want to have to buy prescription food just for him. It’ll be a nightmare keeping him and Ollie eating out of their proper bowls. He’s already on more insulin than Mickey was, but he also weighs almost twice as much. I looked back at my blog entries from 2003, and when Mickey couldn’t be stabilized he had to be kept at the vet’s all day for monitoring every 2 hours. The vet’s being a lot more laissez-faire this time around, but I have to remember this is a different dog. Mickey had heart problems, too, and Max is thankfully pretty stout and healthy.
Ugh. I’m over-analyzing this. Different dogs are different. Moving on.
1. What did you last stick a sticker on?
I made an appointment with a financial guy (!) to talk about what to do with my Gannett 401k (!!) and about a potential house down payment (!!!). The exclamation points are to indicate terrifyingly adult things that even at forty-cough I’m still amazed I have the chops to do. In my planner, I put a little dollar bill sticker on that date, which completely negates the serious adultness of it all.
2. What did you last put a lid on?
I put the cap onto my eyebrow pencil this morning, if a cap counts. It’s not that my brows are thin (au contraire), it’s just that I’m growing some
gray very light almost white-blond eyebrow hairs now and having an eyebrow pencil darken up behind them helps my brows stand out.
3. What did you last wrap in foil?
A sad, leftover turkey burger from earlier this week. We made four, ate three. Number four was wrapped in foil and went into one of WM’s lunches this week.
4. What did you last unscrew a screw out of?
A battery compartment on a little light-up pumpkin I bought at Target. It used AAA batteries which I don’t have, so I immediately re-screwed the lid back onto the battery compartment and moved on. It looks just as lovely without the light.
5. What did you last hold together with tape?
The FedEx label onto our exhibit box when I shipped it back here from Atlanta. I always rip the top sheet off too hard and pull the second layer with it.
Have a great weekend!
