Saturday Lament

My dog is sick. I’m 99% sure he has colitis, which is of course something I can’t treat at home and won’t go away on its own. Which means a trip to the vet first thing Monday morning, and a miserable next 36 hours for him. And probably me too, considering he got me up at 3:30 this morning.

Also had to take the truck for a state inspection this morning, which ended up being about $25 more than anticipated – which wasn’t really anticipated at all, but the result of glancing at the windshield when I went to get in and realizing the inspection had expired.

I can’t concentrate on anything except the fact that my baby is sick and I don’t have a job. My story is kind of sort of stuck right now. Actually, I know what I need to write, I’m just having issues with getting it to come out sounding intelligent.

I can’t even knit. Or spin. I think this is where normal people would turn on the TV, but since I am not normal I of course continue to surf the net aimlessly, shower my poor sick baby with attention, and wonder what on earth I’m going to do about  a job. Knitting requires some measure of concentration, which I have none of at the moment. I even have two new movies sitting in there waiting for me, but no. They sound interesting, but they require sitting still.

You know, maybe what I really need is a nap. I tried, but Timmy woke me being sick again. So maybe another cup of tea.

  1. Aww, I’m so sorry to hear about your baby. It’s hard when pets are sick since they can’t tell you exactly what hurt. 😦

    That being said, I think all your frustrated smilies are hilarious.


  2. (((hugs)))
    I hope that things get better soon. My sister-in-law’s dog has colitis, and the vet told her cooked vegetables are a good idea. Check with your vet to see what they say.
