Internetz, my last few weeks have been a blur!
On top of a really busy time at work, we have had the worst run of luck.
A couple of weeks ago our senior dog was scheduled for dental surgery at the vet. Poor guy - his teeth were just awful. He's 13 years old and I've had him since he was a pup. So yes, he's my baby. I was a wreck to say the least. Let me just preface the rest of this story with the good news that the surgery went just fine, he was home that night and recovered like the trooper that he is. In fact, I swear he's feeling so much better that he's once again got a spring in his step. Don't get me started on the fact that I'm going to have to learn to brush his teeth.
At least now I have a good excuse for why I always "forget" to floss. You know, because I'm now the poster child for dog dental health.
But let me get back to my tale of woe. After dropping the dog to the vet, Irish Boy was heading home, when another driver came barreling out of a lane way and ran right into our car! What a mess.
Thus began the LONGEST day of my life.
Fortunately Irish Boy - and the other driver who was at fault - were both fine. At the end of all days, this is the most important thing EVER.
Sadly our car was not fine. Thus began the two week headache of dealing with our insurance - who are now on the top of my "I shake my fist at you" list.
Long story short - our old - but otherwise in awesome (prior to the accident) shape car - is a write-off.
So we've been car hunting. And grumbling about car hunting. And panicking about how we're going to afford another car when we just replaced my beloved VW Bug back in the fall.
So what are we going to get? Well that's another post. Stay tuned - I promise not to make you wait as long as our DAMN INSURANCE COMPANY has made us!
All is quiet on the adoption front too. I don't know why, but lately the waiting is driving me insane. The zen-like peace which had washed over me as we went through all of the classes and paperwork is long gone. I'd like to blame fertility drugs for my batshit crazy impatience but alas, not this time.
How do you make it through the waiting? Whether it's for that exciting adoption call or a two-week wait, what helps you get through?
I need me some Cheez-its.
